    I want a keyboard for my iPhone/iPad and my new Mac Mini. Can I just buy the iPad keyboard dock for all? It's Bluetooth right?

    I like some of the iOS quick keys the iPad keyboard has.

    No the iPad Keyboard Dock is not bluetooth. It uses the dock connector and is only compatible with iOS devices. It does have the iPad-specific buttons.

    The Apple Bluetooth Keyboard, which does not have a dock or a dock connector, is compatible with both Macs and iOS devices. It does not have iPad-specific buttons.

    You still need a screen with Rowmote Pro.

    I use the iteleport VNC app as a touchpad and keyboard. It's really awesome.

    If you want a physical kb, I'd go with the Apple wireless. There's also a BT keyboard made by Logitech that you can get for around the same price on Amazon that has a touchpad built into also. I'd seen someone say they're using one of those with their mac and I like the idea because of the trackpad.

    For now I'm using Mobile Mouse on my ipad for a mouse/kb when I'm at the TV, it works out fairly well.
