    New iMac Keyboard
    hey all, i just got home from the apple store in london where i bought one of the new wired iMac keyboards...as i spilled juice in my wireless one! anyways, i have the older iMac (g4?) and so i'm using it with this computer, but so far i haven't been able to work out how to get the function keys to work? like the play/pause, dashboard, volume etc...any idea's would be appreciated!
    thanks all!

    iMac Core Duo 20", iBook G4, iPhone 8GB :)
    There's no play pause on the old keyboard. However, F9 is for expose all windows, F10 is for application windows, F11 is show desktop, F12 is dashboard. F13 is less brightness, F14 is more brightness...

    If your iMac is a dome with a screen on an arm, it as a G4, if it is just a monitor, it is a G5, if it has a handle on the top, and isn't flat, it is a G3

    Specs:
    17 inch 2 GHz C2D imac (5,1) with 3GB DDR2 RAM, X1600 (128MB memory) GPU - OSX 10.6.3
    It's neither. It's an intel imac.

    G3-G6 (Apple never used the G6 though but I think it's still in development). Anyways they were made by motorla I think. And the new intel chips are made by intel.

    Run Software Update, and an available piece of software should be called "Keyboard Updater". It's 22MB. Once this is installed, you'll have to hold down the 'fn' key to make the secondary functions work on the keyboard.

    That isn't a G4 or G5, it as a 1G Intel.
