I'm looking to purchase a Mac Mini as a living room(actually bedroom) or HT computer. I think for this purpose having a wireless keyboard with an integrated touchpad or joystick would be most convenient. Has anyone found a good, well priced keyboard like this? I run into the following products, for those looking for the same thing:
Chicony KB-9820 - Infrared, requiring line of sight to the receiver, has a mouse pad (I prefer touchpad).
Fentek RF keyboards - RF which is nice, but too expensive, IMHO, for a touchpad version.
Interlink VersaPoint RF - Similar to Chicony, but RF. A bit expensive.
Gyration keyboards - These sound interesting and are widely available, but I haven't seen a keyboard/pointing device combo: mice are always separate, although since they can be used in the air, are potentially good enough.
Adesso Wireless SlimTouch Mini - Besides the matching name looks like a decent product, but doesn't appear to be available yet.
Lite-on SK7551 - Infrared, but the price can't be beat! Available from other sellers as well, look on www.pricewatch.com or www.pricegrabber.com.
Well, a pretty extensive list, but no perfect solutions. Has anyone seen or used other similar devices? Any comments or suggestions are much appreciated. TIA!
