    Hello,

    I just brought a Apple Wireless Keyboard (which I am using right now to type this post in my Macbook Pro) and I am quite disappointed. The keys sometimes feel hard to press and reach. Also, the arrangement of the F1-F13 keys are strange because its not group unlike my Compaq keyboard I use for my PC. Also, it lacks USB ports.

    So, I was planning to purchase a Macally Icekey for my MBP's external keyboard instead. From reading the reviews at amazon, this keyboard seems like a good alternative and I like how it has a laptop feel to it & a slightly angled slope. Before I purchase, has anyone use this keyboard before? If so, can you please provide me some feedback?

    Please let me know. Thanks.

    The IceKey (and its Keysonic cousin) got some recent coverage in this thread. Not much more to add, except that they are much easier to keep clean than the Apple units.

    Thanks for the reply, is it possible if I can be able to find the Icekey locally? What retail stores sell Icekey (e.g. Wal-mart, Target, etc.)?

    The few times I've seen Macally stuff in regular stores, only some iPod accessories were there. With shipping included, Amazon prices usually turn out well.
