I'm guessing there shouldn't be a problem... but I'm still not entirely sure.
What model? Bluetooth?
I have no idea but here's the link...
Many times the answer is "no". A lot of cheap PC wireless keyboards and mice use special Windows only drives and are non-standard. But then some others come with USB dongles that emulate a usb k/b and mouse.
All Apple wireless K/B and mice are Blue Tooth. Some PC ones are but BT costs more so you don't see t much on PCs.
I believe so, as they use their own dongle. Simply press the button on the dongle, then tap the Bluetooth button each device to connect. Alternatively, you can simply connect to the built-in bluetooth and tap the button on each to put them into "discoverable" mode, then use the Apple Bluetooth Utility to connect them, just like the Apple Wireless Keyboards or Mice.
There's no reason why it shouldn't work - heck, even many wireless Media Center keyboards works with Macs with many of the controls such as volume, etc remaining functional.
The bigger question is, and this is coming from me (search a few posts of mine to get an idea of where I stand on Dell vs Apple) but... why?
There are wireless desktops which are Mac-legended. There are undoubtedly better wired keyboard / wireless mouse combos around.
Well I won't go buying that one right away... but I liked that fact that the keyboard was slim. I like the wireless one from Apple, but they only thing I don't like is that it doesn't have the key pad.
What About The Old Wireless Keyboard??? The Thin but Long One???
The Logitech desktop is slim.
I have used a Logitech 510 keyboard/mouse wireless combo with my Mini.
USB wirelless: yes. Blue Tooth: maybe.
I was wondering this too...
I have this keyboard and mouse combo,
It connects wireless and there's this little dongle that connects to a USB port on my PC.
I was wondering if it would work with a Mac?
You'll be fine. Those are RF wireless. They'll work on anything. Just plug and play.
uhmmnick, nice thread revival there.
Just as a reminder, iMacs come with keyboards & mice.
haha yeaa i noticed it was 2008 after i posted it.
but i know that, it's not for an iMac though.
It should work no problem..
and you do realize that you can check on their website right?
lol what I'm wondering is why you'd want to use a Dell mouse and keyboard.
they're so beyond ******
I know, I looked but it didn't say anything about compatibility.
Actually, I really want Apple's wireless keyboard and magic mouse BUT they are a little too expensive for me to get right now. I have to save for them, you know.
dell KM632 wireless keyboard and mouse
YES I am using both as I type this response. I was attempting to connect and was having some difficulty so replaced the batteries and simultaneously looking up compatibility when voila I realized I had typed into the wireless keyboard and it worked. both are working very well with no glitches.
