I want a laptop with a 17" screen, but I don't want or need a numeric keypad. Every laptop I look at seems to have one. Are there any 17" laptops that don't have a numeric keypad as part of the keyboard?
Not that I know about.
And not likely it would be a popular option. The keypad is useful tool for most laptop users. Quite a few people who would have preferred a 13" model end up going with 15" laptops just to get the full keyboards.
