    Cheap small keyboard for typing.

    I'm looking for a small portable keyboard to use when I need to type more than a few words on my eee.

    I'm looking to spend £20-30. The main priority is that it's good for typing - I'm not bothered about wired or wireless (though bluetooth would be nice) and appearance doesn't matter.

    Has anyone got any possible suggestions?

    I hadn't realised those things were full sized. The low-profile nature concerns me though, usually they're pretty awful to type on at any speed. Have you had any experience with it yourself?

    I don't own a PS3 so I don't know how much typing is involved. My eee's keyboard is already fine for short in-game messages and forum posts but do you know if this would be suitible for typing on for several hours?

    Thanks, but I can't see it in comet's ]online store and I can't find the 'IT works' website. Do you happen to remember the model number?

    Absolutely ! The keys are the same size as a standard keyboard but the profile of the keyboard itself is super slim !! :thumbsup:

    It folds in half and ends up being about the size of a PDA.

    Here's a couple of pics :

    If it 's the same EEE as you have in this pic below then you can see the Igo folds outs to a little bit bigger :

    Or the official Apple keyboard, the wired is small and lovely.

    The only low profile keyboards I've spent any significant amount of time on are the apple wireless one and that of my eee and I've found both pretty unpleasant to type on because of the lack of feel. (I can't tell when I make mistakes, and I make a lot more of them as well). So as good as the iGo looks I'm worried that I'll have the same problem with it's short-travel keys.

    Has anyone had similar experiences and then tried the iGo, alternatively does anyone know of any compact keyboards with normal keys at a good price?
