    If I have a bluetooth keyboard, and my Mini already has bluetooth inside, then do I still need a USB receiver in my Mini? Or does it not need it?

    Also, if my keyboard is bluetooth, then can I still use the 2 USB ports in my keyboard?

    The BT keyboard does not have usb ports in it.
    You can connect two keyboards to a Mac at a time with no issues.
    Keep a USB KB handy in case something goes wrong - you never know! I have actually stopped using my BT one for now.

    You don't need the receiver.
    Presumably - but the speeds are going to be horrible. BT is much slower.

    My bad - I thought he was referring to a 3rd party item.
