I must have missed the seven-row keyboard. Looks like any other keyboard made after 2002.

That's actually even better than the Thinkpad 7-row (layout-wise). It's like a desktop keyboard minus the numpad.

Unfortunately keys probably feel like the garbage they are on all HP laptop keyboards.

I'm typing this on a HP keyboard. It's not that great.
