Photo of Tiny white bugs on keyboard

I bought a used laptop yesterday and the keyboard is littered with these incredibly small bugs. Using the image attached I scaled them and the big one by the letter B appears to be about 1/20th the length of a key on the keyboard, which would make it around 0.8mm long, some are smaller. Any idea what they are? They're tiny, white, and too small for me to really see any features beyond the fact that they have legs. I would like to get a better photo but all I have is my cell phone, so this is as good as it gets. I'm really hoping they're not baby bed bugs.

EDIT: To clarify, the bug in question is on the corner edge of the key to the left of the letter B. I realized that given their size and the quality of the photograph, they might be hard to see. There are a few others in the picture, but most of the white dots are just dust.
