I'm thinkin' it's time to do another mod to my poor mini and after seeing pics of the new mini10, I got to thinking that a similar edge to edge keyboard wouldn't be all that difficult to accomplish on a mini 9. Of course, it will require some cutting on the palm rest and one of two approaches as to connection: 1) find a usb keyboard in the right size, (which I doubt exists) and hardwire it in to my internal hub, or 2) use another netbook keyboard and redo its matrix as necessary to match the mini9 connector. I've done that before with other keyboards. In fact, I'm typing this post right now on a vintage Atari 1200xl!
There are plenty of replacment keyboards available for other netbooks, but I have been unable to find actual dimensions. Does anyone here have access to an aspire one or HP (or other netbook with a larger keyboard)? If so, can you post measurements of just the keyboard itself? Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Geez, since it looks like the 10 is going to be coming out soon, I suppose I should just wait and see what sort of keyboard it has.
