    So I have a small dilemma. I am definitely buying the 21 inch iMac today but I cant decide between the wired keyboard with the number pad and the wireless one without the keypad. I am so used to using a keypad, but the wireless keyboard is enticing because, it is wireless and wireless is always better.

    What do you guys think ?

    Get the wired. The number pad and USB ports are fully worth it. It saves money in the long run because of batteries...

    I agree with this assessment. Back when I bought my iMac (in 2007), I thought I wanted to go wireless but was immediately disappointed when I realized how often I used the number pad (not to mention the additional USB ports).
