My Apple keyboard that just came with my iMac has a numeric keypad and is wired USB - or am I missing something here? It seemed to me that I couldn't get a wireless (bluetooth) version with a numeric keypad.

Oh, okay, I clicked on your fb link and see that you've put WIRE in the title when you meant WIRELESS - perhaps ran out of characters in the title field smile.

Yes, I was wanting one of those but couldn't get one. If Apple brings one out I'll buy it.

Actually, I'd like the option of having a wired mouse and wired (not wireless)numeric keyboard with the iMacs. I'm not a fan of the wireless keyboards and mice. I don't want to have to deal with replacing batteries with devices like this.

I am with you on that one , I prefer wired

fwiw; I almost never use the key pad anyway - Then again I am NOT a 10 key user

I use the numeric keypad on occasion for entering numbers. To be perfectly honest, the majority of the time I use the numeric keypad is for games (first person shooters). I use my left hand on the keypad and my right hand for the mouse.

Speaking of mice, I do like the magic mouse for most things. Scrolling is better on that than a scroll wheel on other mice for example. However, Apple took a step backwards with regard to buttons. It's useless for most games for example.

Right

To be honest I only have 2 games and the numeric keypad has no influence on playing the games - ah space bar , command , option , up down arrows .

Yes a physical mouse buttons , IMO makes a difference when playing games , I mean how many times , you wanna get shot between the eyes while trying to get used to a touch sensitive mouse laugh

Apple's keyboards and mice suck balls anyway. Buy a Logitech or Microsoft set - they're MILES better anyway.

Ditto. I haven't even used my new low profile KB from the new MP 3 months ago... I'm so used to the older version.

I really like my KB (MP almost a year old), but I have small hands. It wasn't love at first sight, though. It just looked too lightweight, but it's a solid sucker, no bounce/springy/squishy key syndrome.

Never met a Mac mouse I liked. Ever. I use a Kensington (LogiTech is good, too, used one for a long time). So I've got a wireless mouse and a wired KB. But they play together really well.


Edit: The Puck! I was the only person on the planet that loved the Puck. Again, the little hands thingie. I still have him, too. I've always thought he'd look great shadow boxed. smile

I love the numeric keypad - but then I do a lot of number stuff from time to time. I'm just used to having the numbers there, and would probably adjust if they weren't. Actually, I really like both the new Apple keyboard and the magic mouse. I especially like the scrolling on the mouse, in all directions.

Ups sorry, yes forgot the write wireless in titel.

I just dont understand why apple dont give the clients the opstion of choosing what they like. Wireless or not wireless.. It looks stupid that littel wireless they have now. Special in front of a big imac.

How do they think in appel?? What is there problem?

My guess is that they're thinking wireless = portability, so if the keyboard's shorter, you can slip it in your briefcase or whatever.

If enough people request it, maybe they'll produce a long wireless version, but don't hold your breath.

Sorry Nana, but I don't get it. Anders knows they offer wired keyboards with numeric keypads, but no wireless ones is what he was mentioning. Not sure why you pointed out they have wired ones. What we have is a failure ot communicate. smile
