    Im not much into the illuminated keyboards even though they could be useful at night. My biggest gripe with the wireless keyboards I have seen is that they are line-of-sight. I have no intention on aiming my keyboard while im typing or mounting a little black box somewhere. Trackballs are ok, but I intend on installing a touchpad in my cup holder, so its not neccessary.

    That usb hub one seemed cool until I thought about actually using the slots. How many wires do you really need coming out of your keyboard?

    If I could only find a slim bluetooth keyboard. *dreams*

    For the line of site comment that is only for the infrared not the radio wave ones.

    Illumination is for 2 factors coolness and visability

    So does there exist a keyboard that doesn't require the line of site, that works perfectly (some of those radiowave ones suck with the mouse), has a trackball, and is slim?

    If you dont want to be restricted by line of sight, then bluetooth is the way to go (IR wont work). Unfortunately they are all freaking expensive - atleast 150 dollars, it seems.
