Where Can I Find Keyboard Wrist-Pad w/ Platform for KB

This is really pissing me off. At home I have a simple platform that my keyboard rests on with a wrist pad attached to it. I can therefore move my keyboard anywhere, including my lap or off the corner of a desk and still have the wrist guard. It makes perfect sense, and they used to be everywhere. Now I can't find one. Best Buy, CompUSA ... we all know they're crappy stores, but for something like this, I figured I'd find something. Nothing. Lots of lame "ergonomic" stuff and "gel" stuff that really doesn't do anything but no simply wrist pads that my keyboard can rest on.

Anyone seen something like this anywhere. I'd hate to buy one online without feeling the material. If the wrist pad is too much "gel" it's ineffective for me. Thanks.

These are online sites but many look around at them...I saw what I think you are looking for on a few of them.

Thanks, man. As usual, you rule. Unfortunately, it appears those are all built for under desk mounting (no, not like secretaries), and those are typically heavier than what I'm looking for. Still, that's much more than I found when I looked, and I'll dig through all the sites later to see if I can find something more portable. Thanks!

Now that's kinda cool. That lip looks like it might hinder "lap typing" but it may work for my main problem which is needing to hang part of my keyboard off the side of a desk. Thanks!
