Sounds like a good idea but in reality I doubt its that useful.

Glad you said that.

I was trying to figure a use for it, too.

perfect for me, thanks

Then you don't need one: It is useful: data entry (numbers that is) on a laptop without num pad is hard. Imagine entering 500 order numbers on a laptop keyboard...

Very useful. any sort of bookkeeping, accounts or data entry as said above is a nightmare if no keypad.

I did originaly think that but then thought surely any one doing that would have a decent laptop that has a keypad?

Good for a top end 27" iMac - you pay £2000 and get a tiny keyboard with no separate number pad!

By "decent" do you mean "huge"?

No need to be flippant. I have seen 14" that incorporate keypads .As above people have stated its useful for book keeping etc, It might well be but I am simply saying that if you are using it for that then why havent they got a decent laptop in the first place for that job ( one that incorporates a keypad)

I am not disputing its a good deal just commenting that in reality I bet its just another bluetooth gizmo that seems good but will probably sit in the drawer.

more shocked that no one has commented on it being 50 quid in the first place as being crazy!

I bought a Belkin one of these about a year ago (uses a dongle, not bluetooth, but then I have no bluetooth on my laptop). Found it yesterday still sealed in it's box. Good idea in theory, but unless you really use the num pad a LOT, and/or can't deal with the slightly angled FN based version on most laptops, a waste of money.
