    Now that the new keyboard is out, does anyone know where I can find the OLD apple keyboard? I'm assuming it's going to be cheaper now, and that's always a good thing. Thanks!

    It may not be cheaper but you can try Best Buy since they have an Apple section.

    eBay, Amazon (they offer rebates on practically everything, and they don't charge tax) and basically every other geek store

    There are frequently some available here as well. I'm not selling you mine, though! I love it. :)

    i wouldn't count on them being cheaper. some people don't like the design, or more specifically that the wireless keyboard is missing a numpad. this will make the old wireless ones a hot commodity in certain respects.

    i'd check all the usual places: Amazon, newegg (though i don't actually know if they sell Apple keyboards), BestBuy, CompUSA, eBay.

    Yeah, possibly. I'm trying to figure out how I feel about that. Actually, the more I think about it, I *never* use the numpad on my iMac, because I don't do much numeric stuff on it (usually on my iBook or a Windows thin client at school). Having a much lighter and more compact kb would be very nice in that respect.

    remember "yesterday" in this thread means August 7, 2007. six months later, i wouldn't count on the validity of that statement.
