    I'm installing OS X on my Apple TV (because I got sick of the regular ATV OS being stupid about network mounts), so I thought I'd take advantage of having a real OS on there and toss a keyboard in the living room in case we want to browse the web or something. I don't want a mouse laying around, just a slim wireless (RF) keyboard with a built-in touchpad. Anyone have any recommendations?

    EDIT: This is about the only viable thing I've found, and damn is it ugly. This one might work, but I don't really care for trackballs.

    What about this older Windows MCE keyboard with mouse? I know I wouldn't get any of the extra buttons, but do you think it would work at all on OS X? It's certainly the form factor I was looking for.

    Keyboard for the living room

    I bought an Adesso keyboard for my PC & it works great. I see they have the same model for the Mac also. http://www.adesso.com/products_detail.asp?productid=368#

    It's small, but not too small & has a built-in touch pad; which eliminates the need for a separate mouse.

    Maybe?

    Found this online and it looks decent. A Multi-touch interface would be a nice addition, but probably patented by Apple. Never had a real need for one because I can use my Powerbook's keyboard and trackpad to screen share (Leopard + Network) with my old G4 hooked up to the TV.
