View Full Version : Apple Keyboard Speculation

I was wondering why nobody has talked about the fact that the G5 is listed as shipping with the Apple Keyboard. If it actually ships with it, that kind of sucks. Maybe they want people to purchase a pro keyboard when the new ones are made available? Another option is that the Apple Keyboard is a wired version, and that the Pro Keyboard will be wireless. This way, the computer will ship with a wired keyboar, so you'll always have one, but be encouraged to buy the pro wireless version. Just a thought. Any comments?

Yeah, thanks, I already read that thread. That's what made me start this one. Read my whole post, my theory/idea/speculation was not listed anywhere in the thread you just linked.

For what it's worth, the G5 was originally listed as shipping with the Apple Pro Keyboard, but the specs have since been revised to simply Apple Keyboard.

Pretty weak, if you ask me.

But then again that could be simply because, at the moment, there are no more Apple Pro Keyboards. (They are not listed on the online store, and as far as I know they were end of lifed.) So maybe they are just saying Apple Keyboard and Apple Mouse for now, so as not to give away the fact there there is a new Pro Keyboard and Mouse on the way? Seems somewhat in Apple style.

Why didn't you just put your opinion IN that other thread?

Anyway, I would buy an MS keyboard and mouse no matter what, so it doesn't really affect me. ;) Two button mouse, pwetty pwease!!

My point exactly.

Hmm...maybe because the other thread was a poll about whether a bluetooth keyboard was practical or not. My question was an entirely different topic and thus thought it deserved an entirely different thread.

Give it up already.
