    Is the new Apple slimline aluminum keyboard compatible with a PC?

    Just got the new keyboard hooked up to my machine, and how nice it is to type on a good keyboard. When you think about it, it's really a novel concept: bringing a laptop (i.e. macbook) keyboard to a desktop. Can you imagine how much money Lenovo could make if they could make a Thinkpad keyboard for a desktop? That would probably be a gold mine. In the meantime, I'll stick to my apple.
