    Keyboard and Mouse recommendations
    I am planning on buying my first Mac, a Mac mini Solo Core, I'm not wanting to spend alot of money on a keyboard and mouse until I know I'm actually gonna like a Mac. Anyone have an recommendations? I haven't heard many good things about the Apple Keyboard. As for Mouse, thinking a plain logictech wired USB will do for now.

    Just buy a "PC" keyboard and mouse. I like my Microsoft Natural 4000 keyboard and Logitech MX400(laser) wired mouse.

    Specs:
    iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, 256 GB SSD, 2 TB HDD, 8 GB RAM
    I would heartily recommend the Logitech Cordless Desktop S530. This is a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse, specifically designed for the Mac, not a retrofitted Windows product. I am using them and they are great.

    BTW, If you go with a Windows keyboard, as suggested above, you may have issues opening the CD/DVD drive - on most Macs, that requires the custom keyboard key!
    My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
    My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
    My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
