    Because that would make or break the purchase for me, if the USB cable is still as small as it is.

    Thanks for any responses.

    also, to add when I bought the Apple aluminum keyboard, it came with a special USB extender that can only be used with this product. That's why I ask.

    Wow, I'm an idiot. I can just plug my mouse into the keyboard! Wow. Sorry for wasting bandwidth!

    Yes, you can use any USB extender. Or, be like most people and plug it into the keyboard (it has a hub, and has power, that is why it has a special modification of the USB port, so the extender will only work with it.

    I plug my Mighty Mouse into my keyboard and then have a generic USB extender (I got it from Best Buy) going from my keyboard to my iMac. I had to do that because I have my keyboard/mouse on a pull-out-drawer under my desk and the cable was too short.
