@guest3456 , I have same laptop, but different version "Lenovo TouchPad x130e", but it's super uncomfortable for keyboard. So I am using the cheap keyboard "ICAN wk-618" for over 5 years. But soon I will be changing to a mechanical keyboard.

Touchpad's are not the same laptop at all. Thinkpad's are renowned for having the best keyboards of all laptops.

i too will eventually go mechanical and programmable which will eliminate some of my AHK remappings since i'll just do it at the hardware level. for example, its a must for me to now have the CTRL key where it is on this laptop, whereas most keyboards have the CTRL key on the far left. but in the thinkpad location, i'm able to slide my left thumb underneath to hold CTRL for all combinations, which is way nicer

@guest3456 , far left ctrl are most comfortable for me. I hate how ThinkPad build a keyboard that is supply key (Fn) is on the far left side. But it's mostly preference for people, some like far-left ctrl, some like close to another key. I am using my laptop just for sharing a monitor with an HDMI, so I am not using it as an laptop.

P.s. I didn't write correctly "Lenovo TouchPad x130e", the right one -> "ThinkPad x130e".

I still use the 1st generation of the Logitech G15.
QWERTZ layout :P

I'm thinking about to replace it by the Logitech G Professional.
I don't need all the G keys anymore (thanks to AHK)
and Num block on the right side (where my mouse/touchpad is) is unergonomical.
G Pro is very compact and mechanical.

But I like the volume wheel of my G15 :think:

Numpad keys are so comfortable and needed for me as an Autohotkey user. What is G keys? :problem: Also, is that what keyboard you want it?

Yes, that's the keyboard.
G keys are programmable keys, like the additional mouse buttons (e.g. 7 buttons).

I have a separate numblock on the left side.
So my keyboard would be centered while my mouse would still be perfectly reachable.

Regarding the missing media keys:
I found an app that turns my smartphone into a remote.
So I can connect it to my PC via USB, BT, or wlan.

P.S. Haven't tested it yet, but I'm optimistic.

Cheers!

I know one for android. I have just downloaded it from the internet premium version to test it out, it's super good I could use my computer anywhere. There is a keyboard, mouse, laser pointer, joystick and some other future.

Thanks for letting me know about G keys!
