    I've finally decided that I want a wireless keyboard for my mac pro to sit about ten feet away from the machine. But I don't want a wireless mouse. The Apple wireless keyboard has 2 USB ports on it. Will a wired optical mouse work on this?

    My Apple wireless keyboard doesn't have any USB ports on it, and I'm pretty sure none of them ever have had - I don't see how you could connect a USB port on the keyboard to the main machine via bluetooth...

    I've had both the new and old Apple wireless keyboards, and neither of them have USB ports on them.

    ::sigh:: Apple's Store website confuses things by having an ad for the wired keyboard on it, touting 2 USB ports. Thanks for pointing that out.

    If the wireless keyboard had 2 USB 2.0 ports, then it would support wireless USB (or some other variant) since Bluetooth is waaaaaay too slow
