A trackpoint mouse integrated in the mini size.
This would make a great server/embedded keyboard, especially if you could enumerate both keyboard and mouse over one USB connection. (call me if you need custom USB device firmware for that
Something like this:http://www.amazon.com/ThinkPad-USB-Keyb ... B002ONCC6G

For me, the tactile keys are always preferred.
It seems like the switch type could be a modular thing and you guys could assemble any keyboard with any switch type.
I'm still loving the white legend here after a year of use. I'd be happy with a trackpoint in that as well to tell the truth. Even in combination with continuing to use an actual mouse.
Thanks for building a keyboard that's actually intended to last!
