is there a good wireless compact keyboard out there?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
By compact, I mean a laptop-size, usually due to missing the numeric keypad.

By good, it needs the following to satisfy; no need for a function key to unlock basic keys like 'pgup/down', and has hotkeys particularly those for adjusting volume.

I've had two wired keyboards like this (and they were hard to come by, cheap, ended up breaking), and i've found about two or three wireless ones online but neither satisfies the 'good' requirement. Some were missing hotkeys, one lacked arrow keys (microsoft arc), one required fn to use pgup/down.

No touchpad/trackball would be nice as well.

Thanks. I've gone past the K360. It's 38cm in length whereas my current keyboard is 32cm and this one's longer than the last one. At that length it isn't very compact for my liking!

I'm beginning to think the thing i'm looking for doesn't exist in wireless form without some unacceptable compromise.

Thanks. Seems to lack a UK distribution, and it's pricier than I would have hoped, but i'll keep tabs on it.
