    Hi,
    recently i bought a mbp, and well, i managed to plug it into my hdtv, quite frankly it look amazing at 1080p... now the thing is, i wanna work with my computer not just put a dvd and watch it you know (since the cable isn't that long) so i already have a wireless mouse (Mx revolution) but i'm looking now for a wireless keyboard... i've been looking around and i keep coming back to the wireless apple bluetooth keyboard (aluminum) but it's not a full size keyboard!! do you guys have any suggestions for a wireless keyboard? and also, any idea if apple will eventually come out with the full size version of the aluminum keyboard?? thank you

    I would go with the bluetooth apple wireless. I know it is not full size, but look at the size of the keyboard that comes with the iMac, it's huge. Your MBP doesn't have full size so your not really going to miss the 10 key.

    My brother is holding out for the full size wireless, but I don't think it is appropriate as a portable keyboard. You can always pick-up the older bluetooth one that is full size.

    I agree...I have the same one at home for our iMac, and I don't miss the number pad at all. I love the small size, and simplicity. Plus it's like typing on my MB!! :D

    What do you mean by 'full-sized'?

    There is one other quite viable option as a wireless keyboard, although it may be more than you would want to spend. The Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 is a rechargeable, backlit BT media keyboard intended for Media Center use. However you can pair it without problems to a Mac, the onboard mini-touchpad works, volume control works, as do transport controls in iTunes. Legends are Windows specific of course, and the positioning of the Windows / Cmd key may be a tad annoying.

    I use it on all my Media Center machines, but there's nothing stopping you from using it with a Mac. You do get a BT mouse (Laser Mouse 8000) in the package as well, but it doesn't pair so well with the Macs - it's a well documented issue on these forums.

    Failing that, I guess it's the Logitech wireless desktop.
