Hi all,

Is anyone aware of any mac-compatible keyboards w/built-in brightness keys and with CTRL keys on both sides of the spacebar? Preferably--but not at all necessarily--w/slightly raised keys, so I can slam on the CTRL keys with the side of my fists instead of using the pinkies.

Haven't done much research on this, but Macally doesn't fit the bill, Logitech keyboards are mostly massive, and the Apple keyboard continues to have just one CTRL key (prolly a wise move monetarily, I sadly admit).

Truth is, I CAN just hack around this using a $5 Windows keyboard, use sys prefs to bind brightness to F1/F2, bind some hand-made iTunes play/pause/forwards/backwards scripts to other function keys, but I'd rather have something small & sleek & hassle-free.

QUOTE Thanks
