    I'm looking for a keyboard similar to Apples flat key design.

    The keys on the Apple keyboard feel good because you don't have to press them as far as regular keyboards. They seem nice and flat.

    Is there a similar keyboard I can buy for my PC?

    Appreciate the help,

    JH

    Sony's all in one computers now come with a keyboard that is similar to the Apple design, I don't know if it is available to buy on it's own.

    I didn't think the Apple keyboard would work on a PC coz the system requirements list says that you must have a Mac.

    Does it use USB? Then you can use it. This isn't the early 90's.

    That keyboard has the arrow keys all scrunched together.

    My roommate uses the new Apple flat keyboard with his PC. It will work.

    The Apple keyboard will work fine.

    Careful though. If this is your first Apple product it is likely you will spend more money on Apple products soon!:p

    The problem is, I want a wireless keyboard and mouse for my PC and if I get the apple wireless keyboard, I will miss the number pad on the right hand side.
    I need that as I use it a lot.

    Is there an alternative (wireless)?

    I don't think that sony one is wireless.

    I haven't seen any wireless Apple keyboard-styled keyboard yet.
    If you use numeric keypad a lot, you can buy a separate wireless numeric keypad.
    Most portable laptop ones have a very shallow tactile feel that's somewhat similar to that of Apple's. And most of these do come out as Bluetooth enabled or just plain ol' wireless with USB dongle.
    And also, Apple keyboard works perfectly fine with PC's, except the Cmd key and some key alignments are annoying. (As I'm using mine with Vista through BootCamp and my other laptop) So be sure to check out the program called "SharpKeys" that lets you reassign any of your keyboard keys.
    Good luck finding your keyboard :)
