    All Microsoft USB keyboards are Apple Compatible, some even have the cloverleaf (command) key. The only big deal with this one is that it is a laser mouse.

    If it was bluetooth, I'd be all over it. I still need to find a good bluetooth set up for my iMac.

    That keyboard sitting next to an ACD would make me vomit.

    Pros:

    Ergonomic Keyboard
    Laser Mouse

    Cons:

    No Bluetooth. Every Mac made recently has this built in, use it.
    Looks like a PC setup. At least logitech made theirs white.

    Why does microsoft think that people need a individual button for everything? The top and left hand side are cluttered with extra/non-standard buttons and why? Because someone thought it would be easier to add a button rather than the end user learning a keyboard combination.
    Jeez....

    sadly, it will sell like hotcakes because of the tag "for Macs" at the end, and consumers will get it just because it says that. I do enjoy the build quality and lastibility of Microsoft Hardware though.

    I agree.

    I am not sure about the keyboard but this mouse is probbaly the next one i will get. There are some nice pics of it here. I just wish they mad one to match the MBP seeing as that is probbaly what i will get next.
