    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering what all of your thoughts were regarding these two keyboards. I know I can't get the Wireless Pro new anymore, however I can get it used for $20 from someone I know.

    The new aluminum one however, I can get for about $40 used or just buy a new one for $70. I'm looking to buy a used one so it's pretty much the Wireless Pro for $20 vs the Wireless Aluminum for $40.

    This will be going towards a set-up with my MBP which will be on an mstand, with an external monitor. I've already gotten the Magic Mouse so I'm trying to find a nice Bluetooth keyboard to compliment it. Any advice would be appreciated!

    I'm in pretty much the same situation.

    Are the Wireless Pro keys better for gaming? I will do more typing than gaming anyway but since the MBP keyboard already has the flat keys I considered buying the Wireless Pro for a more old-school feel. ;)

    All that's good with the wireless pro are:

    -If a battery leaks, you can still open the compartment
    -It has a numpad

    I don't think the old Pro keyboards are any better at typing on, or using for games controls, the newer ones are much quieter to type on and feel nicer to use. I think at home, a quiet keyboard is better than a 'clackety' keyboard.
