    This might be the dumbest question in the universe, but I've sort of run into a small issue. Since I bought my iBook, I've become used to the keyboard layout of the Apple world, resulting in a hard time at work. There I have to use a Dell PC, and I just can't seem to write as fast as before and I get lots of typing errors.

    My questions are:

    1) Can I get a USB Apple keyboard to work on that Dell?
    2) Which layout would I get? The 2 most important keys are @ and ' - I keep missing them all the time on the Dell.

    The USB Apple keyboard will certainly work on the PC. It will work flawlessly in fact. The Apple key is simply the Windows key in Windows. Everything works perfectly. I should know, I used the keyboard that came with a iMac G4 I used to have, with a self-built PC last year (blasphemy I know, but I was too cheap to go buy another keyboard at that time :p)
