    I'm wanting one to stealth into my laptop in case of theft mostly, but also as text file backups. It will help me catch and record commands I type into the CMD (and Terminal in Linux).

    I have only found a Mini-PCI version (Which is for laptops made in the late 2000's), and USB+Wi-Fi versions that stick out too far. I want either one that fits between the keyboard's ribbon cable and the motherboard, or one I can stick into my laptop's spare Mini-PCIe slot (I've made sure it's mPCIe, and not mSATA).

    TL;DR version: Is there any for an mPCIe slot, or nano USB?

    (Software keylogger is not an option)

    you say software keyloggers are not an option, but you also say you want it in case of theft...
    unless you connect something like a 3g modem to it (probably not so viable right), you won't be able to get any data from the keylogger if the computer gets stolen, so i think your only choice is a software keylogger.
    which makes things a lot easier... :)

    That's the one I mentioned in the OP that is only an ancient mPCI, not mPCIe...
