    Cable with new keyboard
    I've just bought a new (not wireless) keyboard for my 20" imac. There's a (USB?) cable with it - could anyone tell me what it's for as there's no sign of it in the instruction manual?

    It's a spare.

    It's got a regular USB plug at one end and an enlarged one shrouded in plastic at the other.

    It is a USB extension cord.

    I've never seen that extension cord come with an iMac. It's really necessary for the Mac Pros. Apple designed it so it can really only be used with the keyboard. They built a ridge in the USB port on one end so it's not completely rectangular.

    thanks for the replies everyone

    it didn't come with my original i mac, only with the replacement keyboard i had to buy after spilling tea on my original one

    you're right about it being keyboard specific though as ni other usb cable will fit.
