this way bonus you can pick a choose a nice rgb keyboard to your specs , either painted, varnished or a nice patterned cloth across the top all the the fraction of the price of a ready built one (well depending if you splurge on keyboard)

can always ask your cat to help

Sounds like a plan! I recently bought a jigsaw for another projectmThis is the keyboard I'm looking to get by the way:

Simply because you will only ever touch like, five keys.

At the moment I just have a Logitech K400 which is just horrible to type on and doesn't have a back light.

I don't do a huge amount of typing on this machine, but it's nice to have a decent set of keys for when I need to. As long as it's wireless, back-lit and not as mushy as that logitech I'm good really.

Yeah. I've heard good reviews on them too. Also 10 keyless is great for a lapboard sort of thing as it gives more mouse area

after having a closer look at that one alien i like that as well it also is back lit but mostly cos it got that 2.4G connection i do prefer that to bluetooth myself, bluetooth can be fussy and frustrating sometimes have had it completely gone of system after certain MS updates and it was a bitch to get back
