Re: Smallest Windows Computer with full function and able to run JAWS

I bought an external numpad and that works great with any lap top that
doesn't have the calculator keys. It is also very small so easy to
transport.

Is shift f10 an option or are there issues with the function keys as well? I
understand with some of these smaller units you have to be alert as to
whether you'll be able to do the jaws key strokes that require function
keys.

One thing to keep in mind about laptop/netbook size is the smaller you go
the more messed up the keyboard has to become. I would love a smaller
laptop but for what I do a full sized keyboard is pretty much a necessity.
For instance the laptop I have now does not have a context menu key which I
find really annoying (I remapped the print screen key to do that but it's
still very annoying),. If I use the touch pad gesture (this laptop does not
have traditional mouse button keys either) for right click it does it where
the mouse happens to be, not where keyboard focus is. I suppose I could do
the route jaws to PC combo first but I suspect I would find that even more
annoying than using the re-mapped print screen.

Hi All,

I currently use a standard PC laptop, running Windows 7 and JAWS 16.
I would like something smaller and lighter than my HP laptop, but
still something that works the same and has the same basic
functionality. What is the smallest such computer in terms of type?
I would want either a built-in keyboard, or a machine that would take
a plug-in keyboard. I have no brand loyalty. What are my options?
