A keyboard for $69? Don't waste our money and upgrade something else
instead.  More RAM, a bigger monitor...

Naaah, ain't worth it (got a 486 on life support :-)
At least the keyboard can be used on a future machine

Hi dude,

you can buy a full 486 or a 3.2GB hard disk for that price
Why waste it on a stupid keyboard?

Because, with a small keyboard you can put the mouse closer to your
hands. It makes switching between mouse and keyboard much easier. I'm
really starting to dislike the big PC keyboard slab piece of junk. Use
one of those apple USB smallish keyboards for awhile - you'll see what I
mean. The key feel is better, size is right, it sounds nice...
:)

Or you could buy a steak dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House.  It is all a
matter of what you want.  That's what you should spend your money on.

BTW, what *is* this "small keyboard" ?

Look at your keyboard. Chop off the numeric keypad on the right hand
side. No, you're not done yet; you've just started. Cursor/arrow keys
must go, along with the insert row and delete row and print screen row.
Chop that section off.

You have M$ keys? Pry em off with a screwdriver! Voila! Small keyboard!

(I could have just said, imagine the keyboard of a laptop attached to
your PC)

It only taskes up half thed esk space than the normal type - I have used one for over two years and wouldn't swap. It works exactly like a Notebook keyboard.
