    I'm thinking of buying the $70 wireless Apple keyboard and the $70 Apple trackpad and would like to be able to use it with my MacBook Air, but also sometimes my Dell PC. Will these work with a PC? I have a Bluetooth USB adapter and have connected a couple of other devices. Just unsure if Windows 7 would pickup any kind of generic or specific drivers for these devices. Thanks!

    The keyboard probably would, but don't bother with the trackpad. Even if you get it connected (pain in the butt), the apple trackpads are terrible in Windows. I always just have to use my mouse when I'm in bootcamp

    At best it will be limited even if you get the Boot Camp drivers installed (which you can do w/ out a Mac).
