    hello mac people!

    so im updating my workspace. and i want it to be completely cable clutter free. i currently own a apple wired QWERTY with num pad. i do want to keep my num pad. but i want it to be cable free. so i looked into alternatives. and guess what. not many to find.

    one i did find was the logitech dinovo mac from 2008 (not the edge). does anyone have experience with this keyboard? do you personally think it types/performs better then the apple keyboard? is it more comfortable? i dont mind spending some bucks.

    does any one know any other wireless keyboards for mac with num pad?

    I have a logitech wave set I got off the clearance shelf for $35 (50% off) and I switch it between my win7 and OSX machines as needed...I'm happy with it and it wasn't a lot of $$.

    I don't really know if there's any apple functions it won't do but the box does say its OSX compatible (its using 2.4Ghz wireless vs. BT though if that matters to you)...

    I had the dinovo edge. It is very nice but a little bulky. The numpad is great. In the end though I decided to get the apple wireless and keep a wired around for when I need to use the numpad. If desk space is not an issue the dinovo will be good. If you want to be minimalist go with the apple wireless.

    I kind of had that dilemma myself, but I ended up going with the apple wired with num pad. It is my favorite keyboard I have ever used, and I do a good bit of work in excel, so the num pad comes in handy there too. I would like the wireless capability, but I really don't mind it being wired.

    i got the dinovo edge windows edition that comes with mouse pad and touch volume sensors and i gotta say it sucks ! the touch feature hangs up and activates with any contact of dust :S , so as long there keyboard doesnt have touch features i guess your good,

    for typing their keyboard is great :)
