The Lenovo Mini Wireless Keyboard N5901 ($59.99 list) is a full QWERTY keyboard shrunken down to the size of a standard smartphone texting pad. If you're looking for a nice-looking remote keypad for your home entertainment system, the Lenovo Mini Keyboard will play, pause, and adjust your volume, so long as you're within a 15-foot radius. However, it lacks a few key features that a HTPC (home theater PC) keyboard should have, like backlit keys and better mouse integration. The N5901 has a unique shape. It resembles a ping-pong paddle, only the paddle portion is more a rounded rectangular shape. The keypad makes up the paddle, and the trackball and mouse buttons make up the handle. Between the trackball and the keypad are the left- and right-click mouse buttons. I would have preferred if the trackball was placed directly below the keypad and the mouse buttons were on the top of the device-like trigger buttons on a game controller - it would have made it easier to toggle between navigating and typing on the device. As it is, you have to hold the protruding handle to navigate and click the mouse buttons, and if you want to type on the keypad you have to move your hands to a completely new position.
Lenovo's Mini Wireless Keyboard N5901 crams a keyboard and mouse into a svelte shell, offering a compact way to improve your home theater PC experience. Priced at $60 (as of June 23, 2010), the N5901 is fairly attractive. The black and orange motif is simple and elegant, though the glossy finish is prone to picking up fingerprints. Despite being lightweight, it feels solid and should hold up well in even the most chaotic of living rooms. Power comes from a pair of AAA batteries; they didn't run down during my testing, but the lack of a battery indicator means that you should probably keep a few spares handy. The device communicates with your PC by way of a tiny USB dongle. In my use, it had excellent range: I wandered into other rooms, at distances up to the 32-foot that Lenovo claims, without breaking connectivity. Plenty of wireless devices tout their plug-and-play functionality, but I was pleasantly surprised at how readily a range of test devices detected the N5901. It connected to desktops running Windows 7, Vista, and XP without a hitch. And after a moment of confusion when I attempted to use the N5901 on a MacBook Pro (OSX isn't officially supported), I was up and running with it as well.
