    I'm after a really savvy, but simply styled bluetooth keyboard to match my PowerBook. HAS to be bluetooth, no USB dongles wanted.

    Any models I should really look out for/avoid? How much are they likely to cost too?

    Thanks!

    Not a fan of those big chunky keys, ideally after something that feels as close the PowerBook keyboard as possible. so long as it has those flat laptop keys.

    I second that. They look pretty good and are really nice to type on.

    Maybe check out the Logitech diNovo line. That keyboard is rather flat. I use the Apple Keyboard with my iBook and I just love it. diNovo

    Good Luck

    Hmmm... I tried the diNovo in a store. It felt almost "too flat" if that makes any sense, but that's probably just my preference. Either that, or the store model was pounded to crap by store goers.

    You're looking for a "permanent" desktop bluetooth keyboard I assume? I hear Stowaway is coming out with a revised, portable BT foldable keyboard.

    Raggedjimi, I was in almost the exact same boat as you. I wasn't crazy about the apple keyboard, I wanted something nice and slim. I looked at the DiNovo, but I decided it was too expensive. There are really no other nice BT keyboards out there. I settled for the apple one, and I'm glad I did because I use the volume/eject keys all the time.

    There's normally a keyboard on the bottom half of the PowerBook, just below the screen...

    Ever thought about a FrogPad?

    Looks like I'll wait for my perfect bluetooth keyboard. see the whole plan was to get a wireless keyboard (already have a wireless mouse) and to use my computer on the big monitor from afar. Sorta like a big remote control in its own way.

    Anywho I'm going out into town tomorrow to carry on my quest. maybe theres a little known good BT keyboard out there just waiting for me.
