Pinebook Pro?

Just find a compatible backlit keyboard that would fit the 14" form factor of the Pinebook Pro and use it instead. It's not such a big deal if you can find it in large quantity through a supplier. What annoys me is the lack of numeric pad tough.

I think, keyboards with true number pad (not Fn-based emulation) start at 15" form factor. On 14" there's not enough physical space to fit a true numpad (well, without going for some awkward compromises, like reducing keys width, rearranging layout from standard, etc., which would kill overall keyboard usability).
