    I bought a 13" MBP a few months ago for my primary business computer and all things considered it has been fantastic. I like the keyboard and the track pad, but one thing that I really miss when building models and using Excel in general is having a number pad (10-key). Between the fact that I travel between offices in Colorado and Arizona and that I really like using multi-touch on the track pad, I really don't want to move to a full sized keyboard with installed number pad.

    I have been looking at the Logitech N305 and the Microsoft Bluetooth Number Pad (I know, the M-word sucks), and both work but have draw-backs: the Logitech requires a re-map of keys and the Microsoft apparently goes to sleep often and drives users crazy.

    Does anyone have experience with these two models or have other recommendations?

    Thanks, but not too tempting at 2.5 stars and after reading reviews.

    I know, but maybe you find something similar, like these or those.

    I genuinely appreciate your help, but I have also used this thing on the internets that they call "Google". What I am looking for is someone with direct experience with a wireless number pad.
