Mac Keyboards...

Well, I'm back at home (from the dorms) and I'm going to be here for at least another year. Yeah, my parents drive me crazy (and vice versa), but it's better than the dorms.

I just got cleaned up from the move, and I realized I wanted a separate keyboard for my laptop, and the cruddy el-cheapo Dell keyboard won't cut it.

I'm used to a laptop-style keyboard, and a while ago I found a Mac keyboard that featured laptop style keys. Now, I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know what keyboard I'm thinking of and where I can find it online?

You don't want to use the laptop's kb, but you want a separate kb like the laptop's... interesting.

Maybe this one? Pricey, but owns lame wannabe PB backlite kb. This baby REALLY lights up.

Well, using the laptop keyboard on this desk isn't comfortable. Plus, the PowerBook gets might toasty on the desk, and I'd like to type on something that doesn't make my hands sweat.

I've seen that keyboard before, but the one I'm think of looks, feels, and is a Mac keyboard ("Command/Apple" keys, translucent white, USB ports and all).

Well there is always the original Mac USB Keyboard. It is quite PBish, even down to the half "F" keys and the small inverted arrows, but it does have a number pad. I actually have one I'm not using, graphite, I was going to us it on my PS2 when I get it online, but I haven't taken the plunge.
