    question is pretty self explanatory. I am switching from my dell desktop to a new powerbook and I want to know if will have the option of using my old USB keyboard on my new pb. If the answer is yes, will all USB keyboards work, I just want to know what kind of options I will have available. Thanks.

    I imagine it would. However, if there are a bunch of speical keys (like media keys such as play, pause, stop) those may not work without a special driver.

    I think most of the Dell keyboards are just relabled logitech keyboards, so if I didn't work upon plugging it in, I'm sure logitech would have the drivers.

    Good Luck

    Yes, and I believe the Windows logo key will function as the command (Apple) key.
