The Super Compact Mini Keyboard with Touchpad from Solidtek features keycaps with a horizontal spacing of just 15 mm, approximately 78% of the normal. The keycaps are also shallower in height, resulting in the rows being spaced just 14 mm apart, approximately 73% of normal. This reduced spacing makes the keyboard not only narrower but also shallower (front to back). The fully-functioning membrane keys have a shorter-than-average travel and include a scissors mechanism that enhances the smoothness and stability of keyswitches. Despite including the smallest "physically functioning" keyboard available, it also includes both an embedded numeric keypad to offer full 101 key functionality as well as a mini-trackball to provide full mouse function. The Shift, Enter, Space Bar, Caps Lock, Tab, and all bottom and top row keys are all significantly smaller than on a standard keyboard.
The narrow key spacing and small size of the key caps make this keyboard primarily suitable for everyday two-handed use by children or those with smaller-than-average hands. For one-handed typing by those with average to smaller hands the compact width can reduce the movement necessary to access all of the keys and the convenience of an integrated mousing device will provide fully computer access in a compact 8.6" width. However those with larger finger tips will still have difficulty activating just a single key and would be better served by a compact keyboard with full-size keycaps and standard key spacing.
The integrated touchpad is centrally positioned for easy access by both left and right hands and offers complete cursor control, combined with buttons below for both left and right clicks. In addition to the standard cursor control and left click, the touchpad also supports multi-finger functions for vertical scrolling and right click/contextual menu access. In keeping with the reduced key dimensions, the touchpad is also smaller than a standard touchpad, just 2.25" wide by 1.375" high
Note: This keyboard will not work properly if connected to a switching device, adapter, or docking station. It must be connected directly to the computer.
All-In-One Input Device for Individuals with Minimal Range of Movement
- Individuals with limited range of movement could benefit from this complete keyboard and mouse solution in a very small footprint of 8.5" x 6".
- Integrated Multi-Function Touchpad: The central touchpad built into the palm support offers complete cursor control, combined with buttons below for both left and right clicks. In addition to the standard cursor control and left click, the touchpad also supports multi-finger functions for vertical scrolling and right click/contextual menu access.
- Embedded Numeric Keypad: The Super Compact Mini Keyboard with Touchpad achieves its compact size due to the elimination of an integrated numeric keypad on the left or right hand side. However, it does have an embedded numeric keypad, which is easily and quickly accessed through a toggle key. Instructions for accessing the embedded numeric keypad are included.
- Embedded Numeric KeypadConcave Keycaps: The keycaps have a slightly concave surface that improves tactility by maximizing finger pad contact on the keycaps and guiding the fingers to the key centers.
- Ultra-Compact and Portable: The slim profile and dimensions mean that the Super Compact Mini Keyboard with Touchpad is highly portable. The sacrifice is that those with larger hands will find keyboarding difficult and should possibly consider the larger Compact Touch.

Super Compact Mini Keyboard with Touchpad
- If you have larger hands you may wish to consider a different keyboard as the reduced spacing and height of the keys may make targeting of these keys difficult. There are numerous keyboards that are still considered "compact" but that retain full-size keys throughout.
- Familiarize yourself with the embedded numeric keypad. If your work requires occasional periods of more intense numeric entry using the numeric keypad may prove to be convenient. If the embedded numeric keypad does not meet your requirements consider adding one of the external numeric keypad options available as accessories.
