    I'm really interest in buying the new keyboard that just came out with the new iMacs, as I want a keyboard that I can use even if I have dirty fingers without messing the black integrated MacBook Pro keyboard. I like the look of this kb (Now I understang why Apple but it white instead of black). Since it just been refreshed I can forget my dream of one with black keys, so I believe that I'll buy it.

    So yeah, does anyone know if you can power an bamboo out of an Apple keyboard? Or does it suck too much power?

    Can't speak for the Bamboo, but I use an older model–the Graphire 4 from Wacom hooked up to the first generation of aluminum keyboard and it works great. I'm not sure how the Bamboo is different from the Graphire in power usage, but I know it was the replacement for this tablet. In fact I had to replace my broken pen a few weeks back and was told to buy the Bamboo pen and it's working great.
