    The "icekey" USB slim keyboard is
    the best I have ever seen. It has
    the feel of a laptop, Less movement
    required, and just feels super.
    I cannot understand why this
    is not an OEM keyboard for
    mac. Its not expensive but makes
    an unbelieveable difference.
    Buy one and you will see.
    I am thrilled with the difference:)

    Yes, I saw it at MWNY and was very impressed. They also have an optical trackball which is very nice, but unfortunately it's not symmetrical.

    Apple's bundled keyboards are more or less generic. I don't think they have any problem with people coming out with third-party keyboards.

    I personally would like a keyboard like the black pro keyboard but smaller - no numeric keypad (I almost never even touch it).

    If that keyboard wasn't from MacAlly, I might consider it. I have the iMedia keyboard sitting on the floor since it will do crazy things like start the computer when I turn a light off in the room. :( :D

    If I buy another third party keyboard, it's going to be a Logitech.

    Works great

    I have gone through two apple
    keyboards and this is still the
    best and has the best feel
    ever.

    If you try it.....you like it.
    no, love it.:)

    The "icekey" USB slim keyboard isthe best I have ever seen.

    I've got the Kensington 64351 keyboard and like it but your passion for the icekey is sending me looking. Why not love your keyboard!

    Re: Works great

    I think something might be wrong with your new keyboard. It only let's you type 30 characters before it line breaks. That seems terribly annoying to me :D

    I've been looking for a good "ergonomic" keyboard for the Mac for the past year for my girlfriend. She likes those "natural" keyboards that Microsoft came out with years ago but it's rare to find on the Mac besides those $100 Logitech ones with built in wireless.
