The TK820 combines a decent keyboard and a large touchpad. We love the integration and gestures, but the keyboard lies really flat with no way to raise the angle.

Price when rated: $100
Lowest price: $78.00 via Sears.com

Pros

  • Large touchpad stays out of the way
  • The touchpad's touch gestures are useful
