Most of the small Bluetooth keyboard/touchpad solutions I see are designed primarily for windows systems.

I have seen some cool ones made by Rii, they have a full backlit keyboard and touch panel in a device that looks like a large remote control.
It seems nice but I would like something with the dedicated Mac keys.

So what do you use?

with this


http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wire...FHO4/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1326513512&sr=8-5

as no wireless apple gear will work due to some unknown interference.

to make it worse I have to use a 6 foot usb extension to reach the mini and keep the wired keyboard on a coffee table along with the mouse. drive me freaken nuts that I can't control the mini any other way in that room.

That looks like the best option so far, the cheap unknown brand models look cool, but I trust Logitech to make good devices.:D

I have the same setup like a lot of people. Wireless Magic Pad and Magic Keyboard. I honestly think you have to get the Magic Pad. The gestures alone makes OSX Lion awesome to work with. My work computer is Windows 7 and after using the OSX Lion hand gestures my experience is a bit inefficient at work. I love internet surfing the best where you can go back and fourth with just a two finger swipe. I love being able to pull up mission control too!!

iPod Touch, iPhone with the rowmote pro app. that's realy great!
So if you own that already than you might want to check it out.

works over wifi. and if you don't own a wireless router, your mac can be used to act as one.

I use apple bt KB, and I love the magic mouse, much prefer it over the Magic Pad which I had for a while. I think it depends on the person. both are good.

BUT I desperately want a Backlit key option in a wireless KB. I saw one model I think it was Logitech and it was too big and pricey. If apple would offer a backlit wirless KB I'd be very happy.

anyone know of other good backlit models??
