    So I was wondering what keyboard you use for gaming on your mac? Does anyone use the wireless apple keyboard? Do you notice much lag because it's wireless? Do you have any suggestions? I would rather not break the bank.
    Thanks

    Any gaming keyboard will do.

    There is no lag at all with Apple bluetooth keyboards.

    I don't do a lot of gaming on my Mac but when I do I just use my regular Apple wireless keyboard and it works fine with no lag. Then again I do have a 2011 Mac Mini with the 4.0 version of Bluetooth. I'm not sure if that makes any difference.

    I used to use my apple wireless keyboard for gaming, until one day I was playing an FPS and my character wouldn't stop spinning... and I realized that my right arrow key was broken. (I would have thought from too much gaming but then I mostly use WASD for movement...)

    But until then, it was fine, no noticeable lag. I think I chewed through batteries a little quicker, but that's to be expected I guess.

    There are a couple of different bluetooth variant Apple keyboards (slim models) one which requires 3 AA batteries and one that requires 2. They issued a firmware fix because earlier slim keyboard wouldn't sleep properly and guzzled through batteries.
