overall, it's very
so it's a Mac keyboard
someone is grumpy.
hmm. and i can use this with my non-mac comp?
it's hooked to my Intel PC running Gentoo. What's even more is that all the function keys work -- even the volume up/down/mute/eject
I'm loving it. great feel to the keys, and very low-profile so it saves me desk space since I'm not so neat most of the time.
What, are you on the MAC layaway plan?
lol. Seriously the only thing holding me back from using a mac is cost... I can build two REALLY good PCs for the price of one decent mac.
But, honestly, I was in the market for a new keyboard, and the Apple KB had everything I needed... Attractive, small, good tacticle feel, USB, media keys, built-in-hub, etc.
they already have a darwin port.... just not aqua.
i may need this
already have... it's slow as fawk.
I'm sure that's a legal version of OSX, right?
actually, it is. I bought it for $50 off of a family friend that bought Tiger.
Nice try, tho
It's only 10.3... not 10.4
Will that keyboard work with a PS/2 adapter? Only reason I ask is because my KVM switch only has PS/2. Don't see why it wouldn't, but you never know. Very looking keyboard, though.
in the situation that you have loaded XP and stripped it of all unneccesary files/programs/services (bare minumums), and then run OS X inside pearpc - it's actually not half bad
Hey, I had to bring it up. I wish MAC would port it already! They could take a big bite out of Microsoft's market if they did. I love their hardware, but like you I can't see paying that much for it.
I wholeheartedly agree. If they had a fast OSX port (one that ran as well as Gnome) for the x86 platform, I would GLADLY pay $150 in stores of it. I think if they worked with the AMD64 platform that it would be more than feasable.
I put some more thought into it, and I think the Intel architecture better-lends itself to Apples way of thinking. A dual-core Hyper-threaded CPU would work WONDERS with the way aqua does on-the-fly rendering.
This would also work well for me, already owning an LGA775 system
