    Does anyone have any recommendations for a Wireless Keyboard with trackpad so that I can use my mac mini from the sofa?

    I have seen the logitech dinovo mini, but was looking for alternatives that work on the mac.

    Check here. Although I don't know how great any of those will work with a Mac.

    Did you see the Logitech Dinovo Edge? Here is a link to it:

    This one was actually built for the Mac and has the Option and Command keys... For some reason Logitech discontinued their sales of it though. You would now find it form some third party dealers, or eBay.

    Use this as an excuse to get an iPad, if you don't have one, and use an app. :) I'm using mobile mouse for wireless mouse and kb at the moment.

    I ended up going for a logitech Dinovo Mini .... and then returning it less than 48 hours later as it was pants.

    I have now decided to invest in a simple apple wirless keyboard, (I already have a wireless mouse) and more importantly a coffee table :)

    Sometimes its the simplest of solutions (coffee table) that are needed to solve problems. I would hope in the future though that Apple could make a clean wireless keyboard with a internal gyro scope to use as a mouse or get the apple remote to work as a pointing device (ala mouse).

    I am also using the Logitech PS3 keyboard with my new Mini. I purchased it on Saturday at BB. It was a return and then I negotiated another $10.00 off. $39.99 was a pretty good price. Just reprogrammed some keys.

    If you go to BB, they are not located with the regular wireless keyboards, but are located in accessories near the PS3 hardware and games.

    Well that is pretty cool. But I use the logitech mediaboard pro. pretty much wanted to do the same thing your wanting.. mac mini, hdtv, and be comfortable from the couch. this is a nice keyboard, though the keys aren't as tactile as i'd like. the touchpad works great.
