Hi guys, can you please recommend a good full-size keyboard for my iPad mini? I'm not interested in the mini keyboards.

I own a 11" Macbook Air, and I think that the keyboard on it is perfect for me. Can you suggest a similar keyboard for my iPad mini? Thanks!

How about the Apple wireless one? It's not that much bigger than the Mini.

Yes, that would be the obvious choice, but it's pretty expensive! I was wondering if there were any cheaper options.

Any idea if it's worth buying a knock-off from eBay like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wireless-Bluetooth-Keyboard-for-Apple-iPad-2-iPhone-4-4S-Tablet-Mac-PC-Silver-/120849862473?ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:GB:1123

Don't buy a knockoff from China. If you like the look, use Amazon as a guide and read some reviews You'll get better results. You don't want to buy non-brand electronics, you'll just get stuck. They are horrible quality anyway.

Just get the Apple wireless keyboard. It's $50 well spent. It will be the closest thing to your MacBook Air's keyboard.

$50 spent once is cheaper than $$30 spent two or three times replacing a crappy keyboard. I've been pounding away on the Apple wireless keyboard that came with my 2009 iMac for 4 years now and it still feels like new.

I agree with this. In the long run it will probably be cheaper than trying to make knock-offs last as long as a genuine Apple Keyboard would.

yes, statement is true. i always believe in the saying "you get what you pay for". check your local CL as they have a better deal.
