    it's hooked to my Intel PC running Gentoo. What's even more :cool: is that all the function keys work -- even the volume up/down/mute/eject :wiggle:

    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.

    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.

    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. :mamoru:

    Nice try, tho :wavey:

    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 :cool: 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 :mamoru:
