I am building a Raspberry Pi laptop using a B+ and an HDMIPi screen, along with various other bits. I am trying to find a suitable keyboard to use, which is a bit difficult, as it needs to be as close to the size of the HDMIPi screen’s length, and around half the width so that it can sit on the top half of the horizontal part of the laptop, with the other bits in the bottom half. It also ideally needs to be really slim, so that I can fit some other electronics underneath. There are many ‘keyboards’ out there, including Pimoroni’s own ‘Ultra Mini Wireless Keyboard’, however the buttons are more like those on a mobile phone, not like proper keyboard keys for real typing.
The Pimoroni ‘Slim Chiclet Keyboard’ looks nice and slim, but I feel that it might be too long, as I don’t want a wacking great bezel around the sides of the screen if possible. The dimensions aren’t advertised, and I wondered how big it was, so that I can see if it’s suitable.
The size of the HDMIPi (in its case) according to my research, is ~230mm wide by 150mm tall.
Thanks for all your help in advance
