Re: No numpad

I thought the same too until I realised that the numeric pad was almost never used in the work I do. Yes it is highly useful when entering a lot of numbers, but I write code for a living and that's mostly in letters, so I've now decided to get a TKL (actually a 17 key fewer keyboard) - but not a blinged up one like this.

Secondly the numeric pad means that my trackball is further away to the right that it needs to be. I don't use the the trackball when writing but when I do need to use it it's further away that it should be.

Finally I clutter up my desk so a smaller footprint is useful on space, as I've never enough space...!
