    My daughter is looking for a wireless keyboard with a built in touchpad. However as a leftie she doesn't want one with the touchpad on the right! Has to be either in centre below the keyboard or on the left.

    I can find loads with the touchpad on the right but none in the left and only a few in the centre and they all seem to be rather small was hoping for full size keyboard.

    By full sized do you mean normal sized keys or the full set of keys?

    There are the wireless versions of the Keysonic/Raidsonic 540 model which would fit the bill. Keysonic quality isn't what it once was, but if you're looking at random chinese stuff on Amazon I guess that's not too much of a concern.

    Does it have to be a trackpad? Something like a Thinkpad compact bluetooth keyboard or Unicomp Endurapro with a trackpoint would meet the criteria.

    She has never used a trackpoint or similar so not sure. I did suggest a plain keyboard with a mouse but she wants the touchpad!

    Well you can get standalone touchpads which would be another way to go.
