"The first thing you notice about the Happy Hacking Keyboard is its size. It has less than half the footprint of most other keyboards, because it dispenses entirely with the dedicated navigation keys (Home, End, arrows, etc.) and the numeric keypad. You can still get to most of these keys, but you do so laptop-style -- by pressing special key combinations.

"Normally I detest notebook keyboards specifically because of their reliance on these key combinations. But after a rough start (which was rough mainly because I needed a wrist pad) I'm beginning to really like the Happy Hacking Keyboard. Aside from the key combinations, it really isn't as lame as a notebook keyboard. It is full-sized in every other respect, and it feels much better than the average notebook keyboard."
