Good little portable keyboard/trackball – Lenovo N5901 Mini 1000DPI 70-Key Handheld Wireless Keyboard w/ Trackball Mouse - Black (2 x LR03) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Easy to hold in one hand and operate track-ball one handed. Keyboard is easy to use with spare hand for command entry. Acceptable range (even through a thin wall). Integrated dongle slot for storage without loosing it.
Cons:
The Ctrl-Alt-Del (single) key is a bit of a worry if you are operating in console mode (in Linux, just turn Ctrl-Alt-Del reboots off if this is a concern). I assume this is to make Windows Logins easier, though the actual Ctrl-Alt-Del keys are perfectly accessible with the fingers of one hand. Trackball is a little plastic-y in feel (roll is a bit sticky, but not enough to disrupt use) but works well enough for low-intensity usage.
Other:
Haven't looked in to the accessibility of beneath the trackball for cleaning.
Bottomline:
Needed a small portable keyboard/mouse for keeping digital signage in our foyer and gallery spaces configured. This unit is working well for this purpose.
