I believe it was one of the IBM Thinkpads that had a "butterfly"

with bigger keys and spacing like a desktop keyboard, that was cut in
half and folded into a tighter space when the lid was closed. Can't say
I was terribly impressed with it; I guess the market wasn't either, or
you'd still see the design.

into a laptop, and without the numerical keypad, obviously.
does such a thing exist?
It probably won't be of any use to you, but the roll-up keyboard might
be a consideration; it's basically the innards of a keyboard, wrapped in
rubber, so that you can roll it up to store/carry and unroll it to use.
It's not particularly usable in my estimation, but some folks like it.
TigerDirect.com has it for $20 or so.
