    Anyone with this keyboard?

    Does anyone have this keyboard that can show me a picture of it with respect to a full size one?

    Cheers!

    If my memory is correct it is the Saitek PK10AVW keyboard.

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    Well the Ultraflat ( which i use @ work) is about 2" shorter on length and about 3/4" smaller on width. Nice action too. Much the same as pictured, just no media buttons & it's black.

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    I just purchased a classic black Dell keyboard. You know, the ones where the case hugs the key layout.

    I now have soooooo much more desk space! way better than the MS one I was using before too, it had strange non-square keys.

    I think it was under £20 delivered and some QuidCo on top of that.

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    She really needs a keyboard without a numpad, as the desk is really that thin!

    Does such a product exist, for a reasonable price?

    There are other dodgy looking sellers on eBay and around the net that sell them too, and you can probably get them a couple of quid cheaper, but I just found it easier to go direct to Dell.

    How about a laptop style keyboard?

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    Some other compact keyboards

    http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/search/br...1000180+500001

    And some more
    http://uk.rs-online.com/web/search/s...act#breadCrumb

    They are for more industrial applications though, so getting expensive.

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    This maybe a little on the small side

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=749804

    This is maybe more reasonable and available in beige, black and white. Not sure how big the keys are though.

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    I've had the middle keysonic one before, and it's pretty difficult to use. The keys are too small.
    If i could get a full size keyboard, but without the numpad and more compact use of the arrow keys, that would be mightily ideal.

    Re: Anyone with this keyboard?

    Sorry I missed this one, tis a subject I know well as i've run up against it here at work.

    Try these they are lovely
    http://cpc.farnell.com/CS16577/compu...u=emprex-5139h
    Also works as a usb hub, has two usb ports one on each side.

    Also you'll need to make sure Number lock is turned off in both the BIOS and windows registry, other wise you type numbers and not letters.

    * Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
    * Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard (If the Keyboard key isn't there, add it.)
    * Double-click the InitialKeyboardIndicators value on the right. (If it's not there, select New from the Edit menu, then String Value, and type InitialKeyboardIndicators for the name of the new value.)
    * Change the value to any of the following:
    o 0 - all indicators off
    o 1 - Caps Lock on
    o 2 - Num Lock on
    o 4 - Scroll Lock on
    Or, combine them by adding the corresponding values:
    o 3 - Caps Lock and Num Lock on
    o 5 - Caps Lock and Scroll Lock on
    o 6 - Num Lock and Scroll Lock on
    o 7 - Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock on
    * Close the Registry Editor when you're done; the change should take effect the next time you start Windows.
