Buy a nice USB 10-key pad.

Here's one from Lenovo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834995516
..and one from Adesso with mechanical keyswitches: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823166110

I can't bear the thought of limiting the whole of the machine by whether it has a (nearly) usable 10-key pad.

The absent ones are always at fault.

Working...
