    small keyboard for data input, besides that looks like you got it covered. and yes your motherboard will be fine with out a metal case. i used a rubbermaid cup cake holder. so much easier to manipulate.

    there are 2 ways to go either wireless RF keyboard or small folding usb one. i use rf however i think i might buy a folding usb one, just for size and you don't use it alot.

    rf keyboard works great. thats just it, with rf (radio frequency) keyboard you don't need to extend an eye because you dont actually have to "see" the receiver. ir (infra red) on the other hand you do.
