    Does anyone use the apple keyboard for gaming? How is it? I've heard the magic mouse is a nightmare, but I haven't heard much on the keyboard. Thanks!

    My wireless keyboard has been awesome. Good battery life, fast response time and feels very uncluttered on my table.

    It's.... okay. I use mine for WoW. It works fine for me, but I know a lot of my fellow gamers lament the lack of a numeric keypad, and the thin keys aren't as tactile as some would like. If I only used my Mac for gaming, I'd get a different keyboard, but since this keyboard is idea for the real work I do on here, I'll stick with it.

    I play FPS games like TF2, MW2, and BFBC2 and the wireless keyboard works great. The only thing I had to change was remapping the command key to control. Under Windows via Bootcamp, the command is the Windows key and it can minimize the game which is annoying.

    It works great. I actually prefer it over my MBP keyboard, as the wireless keyboard's aluminum feel adds a "cold" feel to it, and it's very cool to the touch. I use to for StarCraft 2 mainly, so I run bootcamp Windows 7 to play; at times it can get very hot, so that's why I prefer the wireless keyboard.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I've tried remapping the exact same keys. Switching the command and control keys in Windows because I had the exact same problem, minimizing a fullscreen game, but it's been kind of iffy.
    I'm wondering how you went about this?

    This latest wireless model is called the Magic Mouse, which uses BlueTooth to connect wirelessly to any BlueTooth enabled Mac (most Mac models in the last few years have BlueTooth built-in). This new mouse is remarkable in that you don’t see any buttons, wheels, or scrolling balls.
