And THANKS Ringo--I figured they all had numeric keys on the right--we'll have to check on that!
Yeah, most of them don't, which can be annoying. You could always use a separate USB keyboard and mouse if that's practical. I always keep a small USB-mouse with my laptop because they touchpad gets old during a full workday. You could even use a large external monitor when needed (they are very cheap now).
Looking at Dell's site, they have the Latitude E5530 on sale, which has the big monitor, and the numeric keys. Note that the model only comes with 2GB of RAM, so I would order it with a 4GB upgrade. In your case, I would just call them up rather than wading through the website. Not saying it's the only route, HP makes good laptops as well.
