    I have done some searching and I will be purchasing a keyboard when I buy my 24" LED Display. I can't find a Back lit keyboard for Mac. I like the one on my MB Air. It would be really nice to have one when I am using it in closed mode with my LED display. Why isn't the Apple USB keyboard back lit? Seems like it could be done easily since it is USB. Any keyboards out there for Mac that are Back lit?

    Found a whole bunch here via Google.

    Various price points - cheap to expensive. LOL. If it's USB, it's pretty much Mac-compatible, unless you want programmable, etc.

    HTH

    Thanks but yea I saw those, they all have the stupid Windows Button on the keyboard. I want a keyboard with the "Apple Key" or "Command" like on Mac Laptops.

    I guess you're pretty much out of luck then. You can have a 3rd party Mac keyboard, or you can have a 3rd party backlit keyboard. I don't see any with both the features you want. The windows button will just perform like the Apple/Command key anyways.
