looks like a keeper – Handheld Rechargeable 2.4G Mini Wireless Keyboard with TrackPad and Red Laser Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
It works great for my htpc where i don't want to have a full size keyboard all the time lying around for only some minor input (but you still need a keyboard sometimes with a htpc in my exprience).
This things is the size of a remote which it nice.
Cons:
The trackpad is a little bit hard to operate.
Other:
The alt-key on this keyboard is mapped to the alt-right key in windows (hence alt-tab alt-f4 alt in general don't work). Which is too bad. Because i'm a hot-key fanatic.
You can remap this with different programs. I used "key mapper". I use windows 7 - go to Mappings -> Show -> Boot Mappings and change so the function of the alt-right will also becomde alt-left -> reboot. Problem solved. I mention it because some people report the alt key as broken).
Bottomline:
Sinds the price dropper form above 60 to around 40 it's a good deal.
