    Do any of you use a keyboard with no numeric keypad? If so, can you recommend one?
    I don't mind if they're laptop style keys, in fact I prefer them as long as they're not smaller than normal or have a weird layout.
    Last night I was cleaning the inside of some sticky keys on my MS Arc wireless keyboard and I somehow broke the M key. When I put in the batteries it's stuck ON then if I press the M key it becomes completely dead.
    Anyway...
    It has never been the easiest thing to type on so I'd like to find something that's basically just a full sized keyboard with no numeric pad. I hate those keypads because they're exactly where the mouse should be if you're right handed.

    I'm typing this on my HP Wireless MINI keyboard that I use on my WDTL Live + but it's netbook sized so I'm not going to use it for everyday typing.

    I have 2 Filco Majestouch keyboards (105's), one with blue and one with brown switches. I also have a small Deck keyboard with black switches (82) for gaming which is cool. 

    Buy my latest I really suprised myself with and I love it;

    And this; http://applewirelesskbrd.codeplex.com/

    Really enjoying using it and no loss of wpm which is currently a steady 90. Slightly faster on the Majestouch blues but man they are loud (and full size for that matter, although you can get them in 82 key)

    We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.

    I can suggest a lot of great keyboards, but no keypad? That's damn niche.

    Hmm. The Filco Majestouch-2 looks nice.

    I plugged in the MS Arc keyboard today and the m key works again.
    Weird?

    Maybe there was liquid from the cleaning that dried off?

    @blowdart:Yup, that's exactly what I thought too.
    I still have some keys to clean so I'm going to be more careful this time Smiley

    Here's one made out of leather. Has no lettering on the keys either, so extra l33t =)
