    I am looking for a wireless keyboard, for playing games like Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds on my Mac.
    These are my questions:

    1- What is the best gaming wireless keyboard out there? Why do you like it?

    2- Another option is to put a keyboard skin on, like these:

    3- I would like to customize a skin to put the command identification on top of the keys. Any tips on how to do this?

    Thanks for your help!

    I've honestly never seen a wireless gaming keyboard, so I looked and found this one, but I don't think it's what you're thinking of, it looks like it's targeting console type games.

    Any reason you need wireless, or is it just a preference? If you can go wired, there are way more options available.

    I use a Logitech G15 and a Belkin n52Te, but both are wired, but if you're interested I can provide some feedback?

    Thank you for the reply. The reason why I want a wireless keyboard is because I am looking to play with my MacBook Pro connected to the LCD TV, and I don't want to mess with the cable.
    However I will take a look on your wired suggestions.

    What I really want is to customize the keys identifiers for the game commands.

    I would go for option 2 - the gaming skin. I didn't know that they had them for the wireless mac keyboard. I play battlefield 2142 with my bluetooth keyboard and 50" Plasma display. The skin is a really good idea. Saves having two keyboards around.

    Any good idea on how to neatly mark the keys on the skin?
