Default Wireless Keyboard help?

Hello,
So I am looking for a wireless keyboard at a budget price that would be very compact at the same time. Ive come across this many times as low as 10$ on ebay. Its a "Belkin Wireless Folding IR PDA Keyboard"
Notes:
Model: F8U1500tt
P/N: P44884tt-A
UPC: 7 22868 47533 1
Now I know this is for PDAs, but this does run through infrared and I am wondering, would it connect to a PC?

I'm running a Gateway NX860X gaming laptop (was Gateway's featured gaming laptop back in 07), everything stock really, sent it in a few times for parts replacement but nothing special in it.
2GB ram
Vista-32bit

Not totally sure if it would work but why don't you look into some of the folding keyboards like the rubber type. They can be carried almost anywhere and can easily be folded to be as compact as possible.

Edit: Also noticed you said it's for your laptop, what's wrong with the laptop's keyboard ?

Lol ya...and I see. Makes sense , but I'm not totally sure if it works normal on a pc or there will be any driver problems , that's why I didn't give a definite answer. You could wait around and see what other folks say if you like .

I have 2 of these:

Newegg.com - ADESSO AKB-220 Black 104 Normal Keys USB or PS/2 Compact Waterpoof Flexible Keyboard - Keyboards

They are good. you can soak them in water and they still work. They are a little hard to get used to. You aren't pressing down a key, you are touching a little sensor.
