04-29-2006, 10:33 PM #1BurtonGuestWired or Wireless Keyboard?? HELP!!!!
Im getting an iMac in hopefully late may(as soon as my grades go up). I would like to know which is easier to use. The only thing i am worried about is that the iMac only has three usb ports. I am also going to need a printer because my printer that I used with my PC isnt compatible with a Mac OS. If the wireless is as hard to use as people tell me i will probably get the wired mouse. Please put in your two cents, it is much appreciated.

I use a wireles keyboard and mouse with my Powermac G4 and find it the same as the wired versions. I actually like the mouse more! Wish they made a might mouse version.

You could always just get a USB hub and expand your USB ports that way as well.__________________________________________________

I have the wireless keyboard and it works very well. The only complaint I have is that it takes a few seconds to "talk" with the Mac when I restart.
The only other issue I have is when I boot into Windows mode - but that's probably an issue with Windows and not the keyboard. When I boot into Windows I have to turn the keyboard off and on again to use it.

I also prefer the Wireless setup and I find the keyboard to be A) Very responsive and B) Extremely undemanding on the battery front

while you gain 1 USB port from using the mac keyboard (assuming you don't plug in a mouse?), bear in mind that the 2 usb ports on the mac keyboard aren't high powered. in other words, they won't charge your ipod, for example
