Mac Keyboard Options

Post by Gary » Wed Sep 12, 2012 8:38 pm

I have a Mac Mini with an Apple keyboard that I wish to change. I don't like how much effort the keys require when typing, plus I don't like the general layout and how little the rear legs lift and angle the board. Since many of you are also Mac users, I figured there would be a few recommendations for suitable replacements. Believe it or not, the Dell keyboard for my machine at work is great for typing but lacks (DUH) the Mac specific keys (such as Command) and those for volume control.

I would rather not use a Bluetooth keyboard as that requires the use of batteries. Just one more item that requires maintenance.

Oops. Yet another new thread that I didn't see. Unfortunately, I've never used a Mac, so I don't have any advice. Sean is the only one who I'm sure uses a Mac. What about the Apple store? I was just in one the other day, but I actually didn't notice if they sell computer stuff, or if it's just all iPhones and iPads and other iStuff.

I searched Apple's store and found a keyboard that receives rave reviews for having excellent tactile function. It's under $50, which is a good price range for me. I'll probably get it by Christmas.

Great. That seems like a pretty reasonable price.
