I know it's kind of a dumb question but I seriously have no clue.\n\nI work from home doing data processing and I am unable to use a laptop\nto do my work because of the way the laptop keyboards are designed. I\naccess the servers belonging to my employer to process the work for\neach day via high speed internet. In order to do what I do, I need a\nmore traditional keyboard with the number pad setup like on my current\none (the one that came with my Dell machine).\n\nI would very much like to go wireless and be able to do this job from\nanywhere, even if it means just being able to sit out on my porch when\nthe weather is nice, so I have wondered if there is a way to hook up a\ntraditional keyboard to a laptop, or find a laptop with a more\ntraditional type of keyboard?\n\nMy supervisor told me that she was doubtful about using a laptop to do\nmy work because she said the monitor resolution wouldn't be good\nenough, but would that be the case with newer model? I am accessing\nscanned images and keying in info from those images. Would resolution\nbe a real problem? In her words, she'd tried it and said the\nresolution as well as the keyboard keeped her from being able to do\nvery much... speed is an issue, I have to be very fast to make any\nmoney, so if the logistics of a laptop setup would slow me down too\nmuch then I'll have to forget the idea, but if I can work around it,\nI'd love to not be tied to my home computer for this job.\n\nThanks if you can help!
