Is the wired Apple keyboard with Numpad a thin aluminium one?
The wireless one is £55 on Apple site, the wired one is £28. So I recon, order the iMac with the wireless keyboard thrown in for no extra cost, then add a wired keyboard to the order. Then bang the wireless one on ebay. Unless anyone here wants it? Might post a thread in the for sale...
As far as I know (just checked the Apple Store)...all of the "Apple branded" keyboards are the "thin aluminum" type (they also sell other brands of keyboards).
If you already know that you like this style keyboard, and it definitely sounds like you need/want a numeric keypad, then sure, definitely get the wired keyboard with the numeric keypad.
If also looks like the price difference is almost 2x between the wireless & wired keyboard in the UK (in the U.S. it's $49 vs. $69 dollars)...so definitely then sell the wireless keyboard, and recoup some money.
