Will it clip onto the right or left end of a keyboard, to make a one-piece input device?
I currently use an Apple wireless keyboard and mouse with a Mac mini in my multimedia system, and find that the mouse is always rolling to where it doesn't belong. It would be very cool if I could attach a keyboard and trackpad as s single unit that always stayed together.

You can place the the TrackPad flush against either side of the latest wireless keyboard and it fits perfectly and looks as though it is one piece, providing a perfect "cosmetic" match. But it cannot be clipped physically attached.

There is no provision provided by Apple to clip the Magic Trackpad to the Wireless Keyboard. Since the feet on the lower back of the Magic Trackpad are also buttons, the bottom edge of the Magic Trackpad has to be able to "dip" slightly to actuate the buttons when clicking, so it cannot be rigidly mounted. A trip of silver duct tape may provide a flexible connection between the two, but it is notoriously difficult to remove and may damage the back of the Magic Trackpad.

No, but it does sit very nicely next the wireless keyboard.

The one delete key moves left, is there a single keystroke way to delete right with this keyboard?
