    I'm thinking of buying this keyboard for my iPad 2. However, I won't be using this with my iPad all the time so I can't quite justify the expense for this keyboard. I also intend to get a Mac Mini to use as a HTPC. Will this keyboard work with it including the function keys? If so, then I'll get a lot more out of the keyboard.

    It's bluetooth so it should, in theory, work with any device with bluetooth. You may have to re-pair it between devices each time but other than that, everything should work functionally the same.

    I think there are some Mac specific keys so I just want to confirm that it'll work with the Mac OS.

    according to the reviews on the Logitech page, one user claimed it did work with their MacBook Pro.

    Did the Mac specific keys work though?

    Yes, but there's no escape key - there's a home key in its spot. I'm sort of in the same camp you are. Can you re-map it?

    And if you dual boot, can you get the home key to be an escape key in Win7?

    I'm not sure. Do you have the keyboard? Can you rest it out?

    I've liked that keyboard so much that I also wanted to use it with my computer, but I primarily use windows 7. But there is a lot of problems you mentioned, no functional ( F1, F2, F5 etc ) keys, no escape key, no delete key.
    After doing some research I came up with a solution and wrote a guide with screenshots and such :

    If you are using osX you can try using TextExpander, Controllermate, keyboardmaestro or ironAHK as a mac alternative for AutoHotkey

    I can confirm this works well with a Macbook Pro. There are no function keys, as mentioned, but there is Esc - you just press fn-Home.

    I don't particularly use the F-keys so for me it is perfect.
