You can just squeeze a standard Pico onto a 50mm PCB (but you have to cheat by letting the Pico overhang slightly at the ends). Of course, you can always saw off the bottom end from a standard Pico if you want a few less pins. It's cheaper than buying a pre-crippled one and still works. :) I wouldn't want to go SMD 'cos it's hard when your eyes are c**p and your hands shake.

See here.. If you don't want buttons & switches it will run on a Pimorini Tiny 2040 (here) glued onto a SD card. Not bad for a CP/M machine. :)
