    i recently bought an iMac with a wireless keyboard and mouse and somewhere i heard it doesnt support Bluetooth, does that mean i have to buy a USB keyboard and mouse or is this information false?

    Typing this on my 17" iMac running XP with the Apple BT keyboard, I don't have a BT mouse but assume it would work fine too. You only need a USB keyboard and mouse during the XP install, afterwards BT is fine.

    Yup, find someone who has a kb you could borrow and you're in.

    Personally, I think it's a good idea to have a cheap wired kb around anyhow...
