I keep my case open, so I would notice that. There enough space for a
keylogger in the average keyboard. What makes you think this is not where
a keylogger would be placed?

Can you give me a few hardware related examples, that will work against
someone booting from a live CD/DVD (or better, booting from an USB-stick
and first checking the hash of the CD/DVD before using it)?

Well that is debatable, but I'm sure we all agree on that it is one of the
easiest and cheapest ways of compromising someones computer.

So if anyone know of any transparent keyboard models, please list them.
