Keyboard without numeric pad?
 
Looking for any suggestions for a keyboard without the numeric pad. I've never touched the portion of the keyboard since purchase and would love to have one without it so I can save some room. I've been eying the Apple mini keyboard but not sure if it's available as wired and whether nor not it works with windows 7. Also it doesn't look like it'll be good for any type of gaming.

I've got a budget of $100 CAD, maybe a little more if needed.

Requirements.
- wired
- stylish design(not really..)
- Small size

I would say that you should learn to use the numpad first, since it's very handy if you need to type in a lot of numbers or perform quick calculations. But if you really want to get rid of it, take a look at the Logitech diNovo Edge.

looks good but it's a bit big and it's wireless, I'm looking for something wired(should of mentioned that).

The Microsoft Sidewinder X6 keyboard has a detachable numpad, so you could probably just take it off and not use it. The Deck 82 keyboard also lacks a numpad: Deck Keyboards

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Deck one looks awesome, looks like I'll go with that unless anyone else has any suggestions.

i've been eye-balling this one:

Microsoft Arc Wireless Keyboard, USB at Memory Express Computers

can't go wrong with Microsoft HID devices

If you can increase your budget slightly I would highly suggest a Filco. You would likely never need to buy another keyboard in your lifetime again. But unfortunately they sell for $121 and are only available at one place in North America which is in the USA.
