    I am a MacBook user, that often will use my wireless keyboard when I am typing up a paper or something like that. As I was typing tonight, and searching the internet for my sources. I thought of something. A keyboard with integrated trackpad.

    What I'm thinking is have a standard keyboard up to the row of keys at F16. Then everything to the right would become a track pad. The trackpad would have a grid printed onto it labeled like the number pad. With a certain key combination the user could turn off track pad mode, and turn on number pad mode, or vice versa.

    Already keyboards with built in trackpads exist and I think they're pretty cool; however, I said "No" because I don't think the design is good. Keep the number pad and add a trackpad at the bottom of the keyboard, add some more mass to it if you have to. Mind you, it would be rather expensive.
