    Hello,

    Apologies if this has been asked before (I did have a search around first).

    But I was considering buying a third party apple style wireless keyboard from eBay for my Macbook Pro.

    However on further investigation of the descriptions a lot of these are saying they are not compatible with Macbooks, but are compatible with PC's PS3's and iPad / iPhone etc....

    I can't think what this would be the case, but was just wondering if anyone has any ideas?

    Thanks

    C.

    Any reason you don't want to go with the wireless Apple Keyboard?

    It should be compatible, keyboards all use the same sort of firmware. If it works on iPhone, it should work on MacBook.
    If you get it and it doesn't work at the start, try updating the keyboard firmware.
    Worse come to worse, return it if it doesn't work.
