    When ordering an iMac you can choose to get a bt keyboard & mighty mouse for £40..... do you still get the wired kb & mouse aswell?

    Nope. One or the other.

    oh no! gutted

    a friend is getting an iMac soon and I was hoping to get the BT KB & Mouse on the back of that!

    I thought someone once told me you still got the wired ones anyway..... ah well......

    I have a question to piggyback here:

    I'm thinking of setting up an iMac as a PVR-HTPC with a projector (facing the opposite direction), and I'd like to have the wired keyboard and mouse on the desk side but also use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard wirelessly... can you have both plugged in (well, wired plugged in and BT connected), and just suddenly start using the Bluetooth and have it pick up?

    Yes. This is assuming it works like my Macbook.

    I can use my BT keyboard and mouse and my Macbook keyboard and trackpad at the same time.

    of course, the idea was to save money - buying separatley costs £90.

    I can justify £40 but not £90!

    I am adding another related question to this thread: If I order an iMac with a BT wireless keyboard and mouse, do I still need to (temporarily) have a wired keyboard/mouse connected in order to initiate and complete the pairing process of the BT peripherals? Or will all this function right out of the box or be set up automatically?
