The IIGS keyboard leaps to mind here, as it has a very small footprint and can usually be got for not much money. This assumes you have an iMate on hand that would allow you to make use of ADB devices. I believe (though perhaps someone else can confirm) the iMate will work with 10.4.X

About 14/15 inches.

I may also try to find the keyboard that came with my Bondi Rev B and it
just so happens that I DO have BOTH an adjustable keyboard and an iMate.
