Yeah, possibly. I'm trying to figure out how I feel about that. Actually, the more I think about it, I *never* use the numpad on my iMac, because I don't do much numeric stuff on it (usually on my iBook or a Windows thin client at school). Having a much lighter and more compact kb would be very nice in that respect.i wouldn't count on them being cheaper. some people don't like the design, or more specifically that the wireless keyboard is missing a numpad. this will make the old wireless ones a hot commodity in certain respects.
