i am looking for one specific device in the laptop format. This thing must not have an hdd, ram, cpu etc like in standard laptops. It's like a external wired keyboard, but with a screen and in a laptop format. Or it's like a monitor with keyboard in a laptop format. Hope you will understand what i mean.

I have a desktop with internet and i want to control my desktop with something like rackmount monitor keyboard. Not wireless, remotely at a distance of several meters lying on the couch.

I have an old laptop without any internals. $999! – kobaltz Jan 4 '12 at 17:17
You want a LCD monitor connected to a keyboard? If this product exists the monitor would not exactly be very mobile. You would be better off with a mobile wireless keyboard ( bluetooth ) with a seperate small lcd monitor ( again would not be portable since were not talkng battery powered ). – Ramhound Jan 4 '12 at 17:17
I'm having trouble understanding, but I think I know what you're getting at. You're looking for just a keyboard and display that are attached to eachother and hinging, like in a laptop. Like a rack console. In fact, is a rack console exactly what you're looking for, or are you looking for a smaller/portable version? – jcrawfordor Jan 4 '12 at 17:19
For reference, this is a rack console:… Belkin and CMS are probably the biggest manufacturers. Most units have a KVM built in (in Belkin's case, a networked KVM). – jcrawfordor Jan 4 '12 at 17:21
yes. i mean something like rackmount monitor keyboard, but for desktop, if there is any difference – NoWayOut Jan 4 '12 at 17:26
