    Me too, But Apple hasn't sold white computers since 2008... And we still have white keys... So I'm not holding my breath on that one. They are strange.

    I was searching today -

    Logitech has a Mac aluminum with black keys -
    they also have a nice matching black aluminum with black keys - but it's a windows layout.

    They are so careful in design -

    Thats why it's hard to believe they won't have keyboards and displays that complement the new Mac Pro.

    Where is Ive when they need him?

    I wouldn't mind it just because the guts and firmware might get an update. The Magic Mouse is buggier than the trackpad, but I don't like using the trackpad.

    The Apple keyboards are a perfect example of when form goes too far over function. They look lovely, but I find them horrible for actual typing. The key travel and ergonomics just do not do it for me. So I use one of these instead. It works beautifully.

    I also have the TactilePro, but the wife banned me from using it in the house. I love the clickety clack noise, but she does not.

    I have a box of new apple mice if you want them.. :)

    could use a new keyboard though.. I'll (probably) get a new version if they release one but would be fine with the current full width as well.. that one feels good

    I like my Mac Pro keyboard fine, but if I get a nMP, I want a black, glowy, backlit, awesome keyboard. ;)

    For some strange reason my current Mac Pro loses connection to the Magic Mouse every few days. Another thing I notice is that using an iPhone or iPad and downloading something or syncing it to my Mac makes it buggy. My Magic Trackpad never suffers any of these issues but my mouse does. The batteries aren't the issue as they are constantly recharged and show "100%" I have also ruled out any Wifi or Internet Issue (I get FiOS 150/65) I even ruled out any issue about running too much at once by only having 1 Safari Window or iTunes Window open.

    I'm not sure if the issue is a) The actual Mac Pro body being aluminum
    b) buggy software or c) something entirely different

    I also don't like how the white keyboard sometimes gets a little discolored. I would prefer the MacBook backlit keyboards.

    Thats what I was saying above. The mouse does not have as good a design as the trackpad and could use an update.

    I tried the Magic Mouse too

    Couldn't adjust so I'm using a wi-fi mouse - it doesn't go thru so many batteries.

    Doubtful. Their target market is VERY picky about accessories.

    I actually like the current Apple keyboard, and I'll use a Magic Mouse in some situations, but at my Mac Pro I don't have an Apple mouse.

    Yeah, I have a Truly Ergonomic keyboard which I love, and the Apple mouse. No interest in an Apple keyboard. I doubt they'll produce it, adds product complexity for little value, and certainly the white versions will go with the black computer too.

    Consider an iPad specific keyboard - they never did it. The desktop BT keyboard worked fine, and Cook just said "our customers are happy using the on screen keyboard". That's one of their biggest markets and they didn't do it there, they certainly won't for the Mac Pro.
