Did the CR-48 have a keypad?

I do not like having to use the numbers on the top row of the computer keypad. From the pictures I have seen, the other Google Chromebooks do not have a keypad, does the CR-48?

That's an excellent question! I actually plug in a separate keyboard just to use the numbers on the side. It would be nice if someone would come up with a laptop with that type of keyboard.

Clinquant, that is a great tool you have there, I take it that it is USB? The problem is that the Google Chromebooks I have seen only have 2 USB ports, I use a USB mouse because I hate touchpads. That means both are eaten up and then you have to get a splitter.

You make a good point. I love when a computer has 4 USB port. Two on the side and two extra in the back. To me that would be the perfect setup for GoogleChrome.

I will second that. If you won't add a keypad, then add 2 more ports on the next generation of Google Chromebooks. I know it is to late to ask for that change now, but next go around would be fantastic.

I'm sure as new hardware vendors just on the Chromebook band wagen we will see more options like this.

I have a four port USB dongle connected to mine. Takes up a little room, but it gets the job done.

Ranes, thanks for the idea. I am going to go Google that right now and see how much something like that will cost me. I don't care how much room it takes up, I just want the job done.

The width of the computer is determined by the size of the screen, and the Cr-48 has a 12.1" screen. If you put in a numeric keypad, you have to shrink the keys to fit them in.
