Roland .. thanks for the url's in here too !

Have you, by any chance, happen to know where can I find one of those clicky 
keyboards but without the numpad???

I've been trying to get one for ages .. and the only thing I could come up 
with was this:


but to make a long story short, I couldn't buy it 'cause getting it sent over 
here (Argentina) makes the price tag go as up as us$ 199 (S&H + Wire transfer 
+ local taxes ( = 50% of the price tag + S&H)) ... so .. that kb is out of 
the question for me ...

What I'm _exactly_ looking for is the keyboard you can see in here:


Please, I kindly ask you or anyone in this list, who could provide me with 
information on that keyboard, to throw me a pointer to where can I buy one of 
those keyboards (wether new or used, black or beige, PS2 or USB), model, 
brand or whatever info you might have at the reach of your hands .. I will 
handle the rest (doing the numbers on how much would it cost me to get it 
sent over here).

Regardless of the outcome: thanks for reading and for the links you threw :)

PS: Gary .. take a look at http://www.fentek-ind.com/ .. albeit a little on 
the pricey side, they have quite a nice line up of keyboards to offer. Hope 
you can find the keyboard you are looking for :)
