Default Keyboards with Left side num pad?

Anyone know of keyboards other than the MS Sidewinder X6 that have a left side, or switchable num pad?

I've heard a lot of people say the X6 isn't the greatest keyboard for typing on, and given than I'm a developer, I tend to do a little bit of typing along with my gaming.

I've got a Logitech Wave at work, and its wonderful for typing on, but rather lame for gaming, given the slightly odd key layout (many after hours gaming session put on by work for me to test this). I've got one of the mid range MX series keyboards/mice at home, but the keys are starting to stick/wear out, so I'm looking for something new that'll let me type and game.

How about a stand-alone # pad and just pick the best keyboard for your needs?

Yeah, I was thinking about that. Just wondering how well it would stay put.
