    Try Logitech, since Apple doesn't even make number pads, for bluetooth anyway. I did a quick google search and came up with nothing. There are wireless ones (with usb dongles) but no bluetooth ones. Sorry :(

    The Logitech Cordless Number pad does NOT work with Mac. I tried it last week. :(

    The Logitech V250 is supposed to, but it requires a USB receiver.

    It's not pretty, but I ordered this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001A57WZU and it should be delivered today. Bluetooth, LCD screen, and stated Mac compatibility.

    Hopefully it works, because I have a lot of ISBN numbers to enter into BookPedia this weekend!

    I just wanted to update that the Bluetooth number pad I linked above DOES work properly with my MacBook.

    It is hideously ugly, not quite as heavy as I'd like to prevent drifting, and looks more like a calculator than a keypad, but it works great. The instruction manual even contains a step-by-step for pairing it with OS X.
