Sometimes I love the keypad on my Dell laptop, and sometimes I hate it. More often than not, I hate it becase it takes up valuable room on the pc. It makes typing a lot more awkward because you kinda have to veer to the side to actually type. I would recommend that Dell make an external bluetooth keypad and have a nice big spread out (not too spread out) keyboard. This would make it much nicer for those of us who dont frequently use the keypad, and those who do will never be withouy it.
