    Um... what exactly do you mean? I don't think keyboards have built in trackballs. You will probably have to buy a normal keyboard and then get a separate trackball.

    But all of them are compatible with the mac mini, including the wireless keyboards ?

    Hey no worries. Yes, all plug and play USB mice and keyboards are compatible with all mac computers. That includes wireless and bluetooth.

    I use this with my HTPC mini. Keyboard and trackball work fine and volume control works on the mini. May be a key mapping program available if you need more.

    Finally Worked - several restarts later

    ...bought a cheap keyboard ($50 delivered) on ebay...

    MacMini (OSX10.6) needed a few restarts to finally recognise the keyboard and trackball, but I am now happily typing this on the couch.

    keyboard is a: AnyCtrl Wireless keyboard -- AnyCtrl Wireless Keyboard With Trackball K3

    Mac thinks it's a standard 101 key keyboard

    Persevere, it worked after multiple restarts (stupid detect keyboard function on MAC...press key to right of left hand shift key....failed....just sat there...

    Good Luck!
