"No numeric keypad, deduct one"??
Unless you're an accountant, the lack of numeric keypad is the only thing to like about apple keyboards Why? Because for a right-handed person, removing the numpad brings the mouse closer to the keyboard. Speedier transitions and a lot less wrist strain.
The only problem with removing the numpad is that it is only done when trying to make the teeniest keyboard possible, so the designers always sacrifice the home, end, pgup, pgdown, delete keys - a bad mistake.
If you want a numeric keypad, go and buy a separate one, then you can decide where to put it, instead of inflecting its misery on the rest of us.
