Which keyboard is the quietest? Is the Apple keyboard very quiet? Because I will probably have my Mac in my bedroom, and other people's bedrooms are right next to mine - only a thin wall separates the two. So a quiet keyboard is a necessity for pulling all-nighters ;)

Hehehe. I've done this before....and let me tell you....

The white apple pro keyboard that ships with the G5's is the quietest thing I've ever seen! The mouse is also really nice. My quicksilver has the Apple KB/Mouse but they're the black one. It's not loud, but it's not quiet either.

Duff-Man says...yeah, the standard Apple keyboard is pretty quiet...pretty good response and "feel" to it as well. If you want *really* quiet, have a look at the MacAlly IceKey Slim (http://www.macally.com/spec/usb/input_device/icekey.html) - it's like a laptop keyboard....oh yeah!

Actually I found the older style black Quicksilver keyboards to be the quietest and best looking KB Apple ever made.

Although Apple makes a keyboard with the perfect balance of feel and quietness, Dell makes a really quiet keyboard that is mushy.
