If you get a very small keyboard such as a LittleFingers or
Super Mini Keyboard from Cyberguys.com, which is item number 138 0371, a USB keyboard, you'll need something to rest it on if you do side-lying computing. If you keyboard sitting or standing, you'll just need the keyboard, but not this holder.

For side-lying computers, get some medium hard to hard foam and cut it like the illustration shows, and glue an extra foam piece alongside it with
Tacky Glue. Use an electric kitchen knife to do the cutting. You'll have to use this knife to dig out a flat spot in the foam for the Marble Mouse to rest on. Make a slit for a mouse cord, and mount a Marble Mouse on the foam. At times I use a 3" x 11" x 0.25" piece of soft rubber under the keyboard to keep the keyboard from slipping, but you could more easily use 1/2"- wide foam double-sided sticky tape under the keyboard, which is the way I mounted the mouse on the foam (2 strips). Or nothing.

Note that I have a few labels on the mini keyboard. That is because I used KeyTweak and did some remapping. It's a wonderful free utility that supports Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 7. I replaced the following keys:

F6 (which is key 117) with HOME and labelled it H
F7 (which is key 118) with END and labelled it E
F9 (which is key 120) with PAGE UP and labelled it with an upsidedown V
F10 (which is key 121) with PAGE DOWN and labelled it V
Tilde key (which is key 1) to ENTER and labelled it with Ent
NUM LOCK (which is key 90) with LEFT CONTROL and labelled it Ct
INSERT (which is key 75) with LEFT SHIFT and labelled it Sh

If you prefer the function keys and can use HOME, END, PAGE UP, and PAGE DOWN using the Fn key (special function), leave them off the remap. I find that one-handed keyboarding pretty much makes Fn use nonviable.  And if you can use a keyboard one-handed and don't mind that there's no convenient SHIFT or CONTROL keys in the upper right corner to use with keys on the right side of the keyboard, don't bother to remap. But if all you remap is the Tilde key, it's still worth it because moving way over to the right edge of the keyboard for ENTER can be extremely inconvenient for a one-hander who is clicking a mouse with the other hand.
