Back in the day (1999-2000,) I bought a beige/white AT keyboard that had a very small footprint. The frame was tight to the keys, and didn't have the inches of plastic above the numeric keypad - in contoured to it. I can't remember, but the F keys may have been round. I used an AT-toPS2 adapter. The keyboard eventually developed issues, so I scrapped it (like a young fool.)
I have been working on nostalgia projects. I found the same model of PC desk that I had for my Commodore 64 and then my first two 486 PCs and my Pentium 90 Mhz. I found a brand new, still-in-the-box KDS 19" Extreme Flat crt monitor, in beige. The problem is that the desk is small. I found the same 4.1 Cambridge Soundworks speaker set that I had with my original P3 system, but even with having the monitor base hanging off of the back of the desk by an inch, the small size of the speakers that are crammed against the monitor, and cramming the standard sized keyboard against the speakers, there is very little room for typing.
I don't want to go to a 17" or smaller monitor. No matter how much I comb the internet and ebay, I cannot find a small keyboard that has a numeric keypad. Does anyone have any leads? It has to be beige or white, have a small foot print, and can be used with a PS2 port either directly or via an adapter. I am also searching for a beige ATX case with 4 x 5.25 bays and 2 x 3,5 bays, as my Gateway case has a proprietary PSU slot and I will have to modify the case if that PSU dies.
