    Hey guys,

    I need a new keyboard and i was looking at the apple mighty keyboard range as they seem to be the right mix of design, materials and price that i'm looking for, the other options simply do not look or feel as good.

    My main concern is whether or not they will work under windows xp or linux as the system requirements on apples website list mac osx only.

    My other concern is battery life, anyone know roughly how long the 3 batteries last in them?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Yes it will work in Windows, as all Intel Macs can run Windows natively and most Mac users have.... Mac keyboards and mice!

    Batteries on the BT keyboard can last at least 2 months with decent rechargables, longer with alkaline or lithium batteries. The wireless mouse however lasts weeks rather than months in my experience.

    I love the Apple wired keyboard I have, but the Mighty Mouse isn't so mighty IMO. I'm sure there are other makes which function better.
