MS Wedge Keyboard?
You may want to take some things into consideration. I've been doing the HTPC, or really my main system on my TV for years now. I had a diNovo Edge for a long time due to the built in touchpad, and it was okay. It lasted a long time (years... 5 years or so?), but it had it's share of issues along the way, namely connection issues at reasonable distanced like 6 or 7 feet max, charging issues, etc. They very likely may have fixed most of those problems by now, but it's still incredibly expensive, and while I certainly got used to the tiny touchpad, it's not the easiest to use still.
What I found is that my diNovo Edge, while still hanging in there by a thread, has taken quite a beating over the years. Be it falling off the couch or coffee table, getting sat on, you name it. It lead me to look at my keyboard and mouse as more of a disposable item after a year or two. That being said, I got the Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 just 2 days ago to finally replace my diNovo Edge. It's certainly not what I'd call a slim keyboard, and it's full size with numpad which is actually kind of nice after years with a cramped keyboard. It does seem fairly sturdy and is light enough to have no issue using in a HTPC type situation, plus the bluetrack mouse works on my coffee table, couch, pant leg, you name it. I'm pretty happy with the purchase and I probably won't spend too much money on an HTPC keyboard anymore.
If I were going to spend the money on a nicer, thinner, keyboard, I'd probably get either the Wedge keyboard or an Apple wireless keyboard.
