    This may sound as a silly question, but I would like to have it answered.

    Can I use my Apple Keyboard that came with my G5 on a PC? Can any Apple keyboard be used on PCs?

    Yes...it works in Boot Camp so it can't be OS X only...

    Seems to work fine. :apple: key works as the Windows key, and even the eject button works when using Boot Camp. Don't think the volume buttons works out of the box though, but you should be able to add em' in Windows one would think.

    I'm using one on my Vista PC and it works just fine. The volume buttons work, the eject doesn't seem to, the only problem I'm having is the key mapping.

    For some reason even though I've set it to the US standard (therefore @ is on the 2) it still insists on reading it as if it's a UK layout. Slightly confused by this, but overall it works well.
