    im going to set it up at home with an external mouse and keyboard and all my other peripherals going to a usb hub... so when i use it at home.. i just pop in a usb cable and the power cable and its like a portable desktop.

    Not that it's a dumb question, but I think it's impossible to answer -- everyone has a different opinion about what constitutes a good keyboard. Personally, I think the two best keyboards ever made are the Apple Pro and the one built into the 12/17" PBs. The new PB keyboard is so good that I'd never even think about plugging a different one into it, but that's just me.

    i agree, my fav keyboard is the apple extended.
    but i bet a wireless one and mouse 5buttons and scroll wheel, will be better for you.

    Personally, I like the old Apple Pro Keyboard. I have one for my iBook. I can't stand the new Apple Keyboard because they tilt up (REALLY bad for the wrists) and you can't leave them flat like you could with the old keyboards. I'd try to pick up an Apple Pro Keyboard somehow if you can.
