Pinebook Keyboard and Stand

The two pics (above) show the modified Pinebook desk;  I have added the stand ( by Targus ) and the keyboard ( by Logitech; K400+ ) to solve two systemic problems with the Pinebook, namely that the screen is too low for ergonomic viewing, and the built-in keyboard "missing keypresses" issue is unbearable ( intolerable ). 

The Targus stand props the Pinebook at the right ergonomic angle for pleasant viewing, and the the Logitech K400+ usb keyboard and built-in trackpad gives me full functionality of keyed input with the right touch and correct response on the trackpad !

I did have to reset the defaults ( hardware keyboard layouts ) and I did need to turn up the sensitivity and acceleration on the trackpad since the Logitech has a more "normal" feel ( YMMV ).  

I am in the stages of removing the built-in keyboard module ( which is a laborious process ) and that obviously is not complete;  I'll keep you posted on my progress !

( I regret that I am not able to respond to personal messages;  let's meet on irc! )
Happy to see the results of any experimentation.
it doesn't get happy
it doesn't get sad
it just runs programs
Let  us know how the keyboard replacement process goes. I would love to see a documented process for this. I agree the included keyboard is a waste of time to use.
