Here is the Rii K12 Ultra Slim 2.4GHz Keyboard.
I should make it very clear, this is an ultra slim keyboard so it's not suited to being your everyday keyboard.
Where the ultra slim keyboard excels is in being very portable, as you'd expect. It is small; here it is pictured on my PC Specialist Optimus Series 15.6" laptop. It's a great size for dropping in a bag when you are going portable.
It's also rechargeable so there's no faffing about with batteries or worrying about having to carry spares. Key feel is very nice, with positive action, good resistance and a quiet operation.
Where I think the Rii excels (other than in portability) is the trackpad. The response is excellent and it is large enough to be very usable.
The main body of the Rii K12 is steel which keeps everything very solid (but not heavy). The keyboard sits at a slight incline to aid typing and comfort and there are 5 rubber feet to prevent you chasing it around your desk (three along the top and two at the bottom). The K12 feels very stable in use and is surprisingly easy to get along with (given its size). I found I was able to type reasonably fast within a couple of minutes use.
Being so small, Rii have had to be creative with layout so expect to find punctuation and symbols in non-standard locations.
Overall, the Rii K12 is the perfect travel companion. It is light, small and yet nice to use with a very good trackpad
