    Specs:
    bottom-of-the-line MacBook
    initial startup with bluetooth keyboard?
    I plan to get a mac mini for my wife with a logitech dinovo (bluetooth keyboard/trackpad). My question is: will the computer be able to boot and recognize the keyboard? I don't have a USB keyboard/mouse and I don't want to have to buy one just to set it up.

    The bad news is you have to use the USB keyboard to set it up.

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    The system will automatically display the Bluetooth setup assistant if no keyboard or mouse is found at startup. You should not need a USB keyboard.

    Good luck with it. Page 2 of my Apple Wireless Keyboard User Guide states required USB keyboard and mouse for set up, install all firmware and software updates.

    Let us know how it goes please? I followed the guide's recommendation thinking that was the go!
