    Hey,
    I am looking for an external bluetooth keyboard for my rMBP, are there any good keyboards except Apple's magic keyboard?

    Thanks

    There's are several good Logitech options.

    I use the Logitech K811 for my Mac when I connect it to my external monitor. The keys have a nice feel and are backlit. It can connect to up to 3 Bluetooth devices.

    I have had the K811 for a year now and LOVE it! Highly recommended.

    I third any of the logitech options. If you don't want to spend a lot and don't care about backlit keys, the K380 or K480 (which is a K380 with a slot for your phone) are under $50 and have the same functionality as the K811.

    The only issue I've had is that it disconnects when the computer restarts and take a while to reconnect. That means if you need to hit the option key when you bootup to change the startup disk, it won't work fast enough.
