    Hi,

    Can anyone make a suggestion about a USB extension for my iMac keyboard? As it is, it won't reach under my desk to the back of the computer. The stock cord is ridiculously short and I'm currently running along the top of my desk.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I had the same problem.

    Almost any electronics store should carry a USB extension cable. Seem to remember getting mine from Best Buy.

    I got a few really long ones off the net. Newegg I think. They were pretty cheap, even with shipping and tax.

    I'll check on the web, but I don't really need a long one. Maybe 3-4 feet would suffice, but the shortest I've been able to find locally is 6 feet. It's really amazing that Apple makes these KB's with that short of a cord. :D

    I bought a keyboard seperately and it came with an extension cable. i have an extra one hanging around if you want me to send it to you. I think its about 3 feet.

    just PM where you want me to send it to. I will confirm when I get home what exact length it is. I might have 2 or 3 so you might have a choice.
