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

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.
