    Hi,

    As it says in the title I need some suggestions for a Wireless Keyboard and Mouse for the Mac Mini. ( I will be getting it next month, I already have 8gb ram ready to go in it :) ).

    This will be my 1st MAC and I will be using it for everday tasks (Watching DVD's, E-mail, surfing, some iPhoto) aswell as playing World of Warcraft.

    I like the look of the Apple wireless keyboard and the Magic mouse but I was wondering if they are worth the £114 asking price or are there better alternatives?.

    Thanks.

    EDIT : If I eventually use Bootcamp to put Windows 7 on the Mini would the Magic Mouse work?.

    Well only the Apple keyboards have the Command key (has Apple symbol on it). However you can use a keyboard designed for Windows. I use Logitech wireless keyboards and mouse. You can get these far cheaper than the Apple products.

    I think if needed and not automatically installed by Windows when the Magic Mouse is connected, the drivers for the Magic Mouse would be part of the Boot Camp drivers you need to install.

    Looks like mouse multi-touch is going to be a significant part of Mac OS 10.7. Does anyone know of any third-party Mac compatible mouse that will handle these commands?

    Hi,

    Found a nice looking Mouse after further looking into things : Razer Orochi : http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_GB/pd/productID.169419000

    looks good - read some good reviews - option of wired or wireless - may have to consider this - N.B cheaper if you dont buy direct from website.

    Im thinking the official wireless keyboard would be best why I get use to OSX.
