Hello Guys

I switched to the Mac two days ago after YEARS of using Windows.

So far ... I'm very happy !

there is one slight issue with the hardware ! I am FAT and thus I have fat fingers (like the green sausages that Shrek has, though mine aren't green LOL)

The little tiny keyboard is very uncomfortable for me, and since I am a touch typist I was hoping someone could direct me towards any Ergonomic Keyboards specifically designed for Macs !

I would greatly appreciate the Help.

Thank You.

There really aren't any that are "specific" for Mac that aren't a complete rip off. But any Microsoft Ergo keyboard will work just fine for Mac and they have Mac drivers so you can map all the keys how you'd like.

Logitech also has Mac drivers, but I tend to avoid them because they've always tended to cause issues. Not sure if that's still the case, but I don't chance it given their history.

The Apple wired full sized keyboard with the Numbered keypad is nice also but not a so called Ergonomic keyboard. I agree with Schweb, Microsoft has some great keyboards as well as Logitech but the MS drivers are better.

If you can, go to local stores and see if you can at least type on a few keyboards and get the feel for your hands and the keyboard.

I already have the Microsoft Ergonomic Natural Keyboard from my Windows Machine .. but I did not know they worked with Macs !!

How does one go about installing Drivers on a Mac ? Sorry I don't know Mac basics yet.

Thanks
