    You can probably just find a Bluetooth dongle (they run about $30-40) if they are compatible with Windows. You might want to do some checking on that because I'm not sure that they are.

    There is a certain D-Link model that is supposed to work well. There are some issues that you have to work around with Windows' built-in bluetooth support, but Google had plenty of results when I was looking into getting one for my PC. I ended up with a wired one though.

    I used a Dlink BT120 on my PC running Vista to work with the Apple Wireless keyboard. It worked extremely well with the obvious limitations of not being able to use any of the "Apple" keys like eject.

    But it was a nice setup.

    but the up close looks like a different model idk which one does yours look like and im sure they are pretty much the same exact thing
    thanks for the help

    yeah im kind of regretting it right now because i had no idea that i was going to be hooking it up to my pc. the reason that made me use it was that my current keyboard no matter what i do i can't clean it off its constantly sticky. So it was going to be used for my macbook pro and then i was going to just use my current keyboard/mouse on my pc when i ordered them. I hope that it doesnt take that long to adjust not having a numpad or macros idk though

    That looks like the one. That NewEgg one is great since it has a $10 rebate for the next week. That's pretty nice. Mine is blue, but it may only be USB 1.1, not that it's important for a keyboard or mouse.
