    The fact that it's by Creative Labs will probably keep me from buying it.

    Also, I guess you'll trigger lots of unwanted notes when you try to type hotkeys on the regular keyboard.

    Keep it modular

    It may work for some, but I have to say that most compromises are just a couple of mediocre products combined into one. It may seem a good idea, but you'll be better off with dedicated units. That piano keyboard is probably not very good, and the computer keyboard will be a pain to use with the piano under your arms. Get separate units and use them side by side or with any makeshift shelf if you want them in that configuration.

    In the words of the great Triumph the insult comic dog...."THat is really nice....for me to poop on!".

    Yeah creative makes some really not so good stuff. Plus look at the size of the keys, that would be really hard to even play on.

    the piano keys hide underneath a wrist wrest that slides over the top when you don't need to use them. as a keyboard i'd say it's more comfortable than your average keyboard, and everything seems pretty tight on it.

    except for the "fun" button. i have no idea what that does, and probably wouldn't push it for fear that it would cause my computer to catch fire.
