hey all, sorry if someon already posted this. But found an interesting new keyboard from Lenovo shown on the CNET YouTube channel. Most likely demo'd at CES.

Really intriguing feature, see what u think!

The Lenovo n5902 was never really greatly affordable IMO but this looks like it will be.
Out in March.

Looks handy, but a little pricey at $55.

That actually looks really nice.
Not cheap, though. Would still consider it :-)

Things I don't like

- no d-pad
- no backlit
- entire area as touchpad
- AAA batteries

Agreed, except for the back light, they are just battery wasters. I'd get one of these and spend the difference on a new Raspberry Pi.

Usually there is a button to enable/disable backlit which is very useful when you watch movie in the dark room.
Rii mini i6 looks much better than Lenovo 500.
