    The new keyboard & mouse

    well the apple pro keyboard is popular in the PC crowd, and pics of the new keyboard & mouse are in, at www.apple.com/keyboard/

    they're blootoof

    the keyboard is even more compact than the old one.

    the mouse is STILL 1-button, even tho jobs found it neccessary to use a wheelmouse at the last keynote. damn their hides.

    The keyboard is one of the new, smaller ones with no edges, but is damn nice to type on.
    I wub the mouse, it is one of the best ive used, and the clickyness is great. I never understand people who go on about the one button, if you dont like it, go get another mouse.

    Still no ipod scrolling mouse tho

    not so sure if they'll work with a PC. is there an official standard for bluetooth input devices yet? bluetooth has always seemed a bit hit & miss for me, even in XP

    I would not want to buy the kb/mouse for my PC and find out it doesn't work...but from what I have seen...if you have the D-Link USB Bluetooth Adapter (part number DBT-120, rev. B2 or later) then it might work
    XP2400, (2) 256Meg Crucial PC2100, ATI Radeon 9800Pro 128Meg, LeadTek TV2000XP all in a Shuttle SK41G and hooked to a Sony E540 / NEC 1712

    iBook 14.1" 933Mhz G4, 640Meg, 60GB, Combo running 10.3.x
