Am I right to ashume that the currnent apple wireless and wired keyboards have 2 usb in's?
The wired keyboard does have two USB ports in the back. But the wireless one doesn't.
To the general public, is not having USB ports a problem?
I was going for wireless with Rev B iMacG5, but with wired there will only be 1 USB port left (after M and KB)
Alot of things are USB, could buy a hub, i got one at microcenter last night for $9
I think I can afford that.
wireless it is then!
If you get a wired kb, it will use one of your open USB ports, but it has 2 more USB out ports. You can use 1 for your mouse, but you still have one left, plus whatever is leftover on the machine. In the case of the iMac, you have 3 total on it. So you would still have 2 left on the machine and 1 left on the kb.
With a wireless mouse and kb, you can get a BT module installed internally, so you don't lose any slots anyway. All 3 are still available.
You will really want a hub with your imac if your going wireless. Having on 3 usb ports would drive me nuts. I suffer with 3. I will be getting a hub very soon.
