I’m a massive fan of 10-key-less and will never go back to full size. But I do need the PGUP and PGDN etc for buy menus and other bits. I imagine this keyboard will be great for real cramped desks!
I'm the exact opposite: give me my numpad or give me death!
Wouldn't it be amazing if someone could take one of those and mount it directly to the keyboard, like physically on keyboard next to the regular keys. It would be so much more efficient on one device.
There is page-up/down on P/} on the function keys. It is a bit of a pain, but you get used to it.
One day they might even figure out I prefer the numpad on the left.
I'm a convert to the separate numpad. So much more flexibility. I actually have it behind my keyboard at the moment
So you're saying you like more wires on your desk than necessary?
I still have my Microsoft Sidewinder X6 tucked away somewhere - it's best feature was the ability to disconnect the Numpad and mount it on the left of the main keyboard. Was really useful. Sadly, it was a membrane keyboard and I didn't find it very comfortable to type on for long periods (gaming was OK).
Oh, I don't disagree, if Filco did a board with the numpad mirrored on the left (so, the Enter on the left, 1 and 3, 4 and 6 swapped, etc...) I'd buy it launch day.
