    I need a USB keyboard for my Mac. Since you can get PC keyboard pretty much anywhere for $10, I assumed that there would also be cheap Mac keyboards somewhere, somehow. I can't seem to find anything under $40-$50, though. What are the cheapest keyboards out there? Is there a particular store people order from? Or is my best bet to buy a PC keyboard and Sharpie the Mac keys onto it? Ghetto, I know, but I might just get frustrated enough to do it.

    Try eBay for a second hand keyboard - there should be loads of them!

    So use a cheap PC keyboard. They work fine. Windows key is the Apple key. Hold F12 to eject.

    $22.84 from Amazon.

    I've actually used this keyboard for a few years now. I like everything about it, except the last time I checked, the driver for the volume keys was a little quirky (though it did work).

    Not to hijack or anything, but I have a question that is also keyboard related.

    Can someone point out a good place (read cheap) to pick up an early 08 MBP keyboard? I'm talking about the generation before unibody, silver keyboard.
