Does anyone know of an ergonomic or natural keyboard for the iMac? The computer is wonderful but I have to admit the natural/ergonomic keyboard I had on my pc took the strain out of my hands/forearms.

Is there a keyboard like this for iMac?

There aren't too many choices for dedicated Mac keyboards but most USB Windows keyboards work so try using your ergonomic keyboard. If it has fancy key features then they probably won't work unless the manufacturer provides Mac software. The normal standard keys will work the same though. Also there won't be a Mac Command key but the Windows key should do the same thing.

Basically, as EM has indicated, almost any USB keyboard will work with MacOS X. I simply couldn't work with an Apple extended k/b (older model) so went to a PC one. It happens to be a Chicony, although I didn't know that when I bought it.

It has volume, brightness, plus several other buttons that work well with OS X. It doesn't have disk eject, but I use F12 for that. You soon get accustomed to using the Windows sign for Command, and the Alt key for Option.

If you still have your ergonomic k/b, like the curvaceous M'Soft model, just give it a try.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
