    Anyone know if the touch disc is like a laptop mouse control, or something else entirely?

    The one with the disc is the diNovo Edge. There's no Mac Edition.

    Yes, it's not in logitech.com and seems unavailable in Europe.

    Ahh... it sounded like you were saying there's no Logitech keyboard for the Mac.

    It's mouse control and scrolling.

    My review and thread can be found here.

    I have the mac Edge version. Love it so much more that the chicklet apple keyboards. The disc does act like a mouse pointer and can scroll in a window horizontal and vertical also. I like the volume controls and the life of the charge. I think it has been discontinued and had to buy mine on a used / refurbished store.

    They still make them, I believe. I just bought one for the living room about three weeks ago. I'm typing on it right now. I really like the keys on it, but took a bit to get used to the pad. I had problems getting the scrolling to work, but after I figured it out, it works fine. I use it on my Powerbook because I keep it on a stand and got tired of leaning forward to type.

    I got mine at MacMall. It looks like they still have it on sale for $79, but it was only $75 when I bought it. Logitech may be getting ready to discontinue the model, though, since they tend to slash prices right before discontinuing a model. I picked up two MX Revolution mice for $40 each right before they discontinued it.

    Edit: BTW, the full name is diNovo Edge Mac Edition. It's the Bluetooth model with a trackpad and a stand/charger. The regular keyboard with no trackpad (but with a number pad) is called diNovo Wireless Keyboard - Mac Edition. It uses regular wireless and batteries.

    Thanks.

    I read your review before I posted, but I was still unclear, so thanks for the clarification.
