    mine came with a wired keyboard and mouse. i would take the wired keyboard cause it has the 2 usb ports on it. i would like to get a blue tooth mouse though.

    I would opt for the wired versions for now. I would like wireless, and I agree it looks nicer, but the mous you get is only a one click. I would save my $$$, and when a wireless mighty mouse or equivelant came out, purchase that.

    Well, when I bought mine online, it had the wired keyboard & mouse selected by default; if you wanted the wireless keyboard & mouse, you had to select it and pay extra. I don't know if it's the same for Apple's retail partners though. I have an Apple wireless keyboard on my G4 Cube and it's pretty nice, but I wouldn't touch that one-button wireless mouse with a 10-foot stick. Here's a decent replacement:

    I've personally grown accustomed to Logitech mice and require that my mice have the forward & backwards buttons on the side (for programming per application & surfing the net), as well as a scrollwheel and right-mouse button.

    No, retail stores are pre-packaged with wired mice/keyboards only. The wireless keyboard is $59.

    Didn't know BestBuy is selling Macs again.

    I would go wired, that way you can have extra usb ports on your keyboard, and a mighty mouse, also you won't have to worry about changing the battery in the keyboard or mouse..

    Wireless vs Wired
    Ok - so that's not a Mighty Mouse, but you want ports behind your keyboard? that's what it'll look like. I'll eventually get a better Bluetooth mouse.

    I have a hub behind the iPod on the 1st pic, and there are 3 USB ports behind the iMac.

    I have about a week with my iMac and the battery is still at 100%... just get the same kind of batteries that come with the keyboard (Energizer e2 Lithiums) and you'll rarely have to change batteries.

    is that the new imac intel? and 17" or 20" looks like 17" to me.


    and i just checked my receipt, they charged me 1359 for the 17" mac so it was the wireless included. i think i would've gone for that anyways, it looks a lot cleaner.

    the mighty mouse that came with my iMac is a two button mouse. by default it is set up as a one button. in sys prefs, you can change it. it looks like a one button, but it acts like two button.

    You sure that's not sales tax? a 17" in CA would be 1406.17 after taxes.
