    Thats not the Apple Pro keyboard. Thats the newer Apple Keyboard (non pro). The older Pro models were way better, but they were discontinued.

    Good point. Is this what you're thinking of? I have the black key version...

    Yep thats the one. Personally, I think the black Pro Keyboard is one of the best looking keyboards i've ever seen. My school library has a bunch. Maybe I should "borrow" one :mamoru:

    Black Keyboard > *

    I don't know if I'll stop using it once I get my G5. The buttons on the new Keyboards are way too close together (look at the arrow keys).

    they're just USB, right? any idea if they work on windows? I like the apple kb's, and that curved design is might comfy. Time for a new kb anyway ;) You can keep your 1-button mice, tho.

    I've never actually even opened any of the one-button mice that have come with my various Macs. Always use a third-party mouse with at least two buttons and a scroll wheel.

    They're not THAT bad. They actually feel very nice once you use them for a while. And like everything else Apple, they look awesome too :)

    Of course, I could never live with just one button, so I ended up giving my Pro Mouse to my parents. The concept of a left and right mouse button is just too much for them to grasp, so the 1 button mouse fits in perfectly for them.

    I wish my G5 came with the black keyboard. My white KB gets so damn dirty.
