Bluetooth Keyboard with Numeric Pad?

I've always wondered why Apple doesn't make a BT keyboard with the number pad, just like their regular wired keyboard. I'd be all over it. I can't live without a number pad, but I'd rather not have to buy a separate aftermarket device, I wish it was all in one.

Anyone have a workaround?

Seriously. I'd be all over that. One potential workaround is a wireless model from logitech, although they don't have BT with a num pad.

Apple used to make one. Not the new thin, low profile style, but the larger white and clear acrylic BT model. I still have one floating around.

Check eBay.

Get this one from OWC.

Its on sale for 40. Color doesn't look like it matches perfectly. Plus it is plastic.
