Thread: I finally bought my pbook!
05-26-2004, 09:08 AM #1KananigirlGuestI finally bought my pbook!
I am now the proud owner of a new 12" powerbook! I love this cute little thing! I also bought an iskin for my keyboard, since it's cheaper buying it from the store here than online. Now I just need to buy everything else for this thing.
I was wondering does anyone know or use any ubs to ps/2 adapters? I'm looking to get one, since I like my keyboard from my pc, since it's ergonomic. I'm also looking to buy a new mouse as well. Anyone has any suggestions on a new mouse? I'm probably going to go over to CompUSA later today to look around.

Any Logitech optical mouse is great for me, since you have the little mini PB you should spring for one of the wireless mini mice as well.

I was looking around CompUSA over here, they only had one USB to PS/2 adapters and it was only for Windows? Ugh, I guess I need to look online I suppose. Or anyone happen to know where I can get USB ergonomic keyboards for laptops?
Thanks to everyone who's help me on this board. You guys are great! My dad finally saw my 12" last night and said, "Oh da cute!" He's not a mac person, but it said it was cute. I agree.

I think you'll find that the adapter is the less expensive option, and that the selection of ergonomic USB keyboards is a bit limited.

[QUOTE=Padawan]If you want an adapter, Best Buy should have one (if you happen to have a store close to you), or you can order one here: http://www.newegg.com/app/searchProd...1&srchFor=ps/2
Thank you, someone else suggest that place to me. I'm thinking about getting that instead. I don't see to find any USB ergonomic keyboards around here.

No worries, "Windows only" hardware like that will work just fine on Mac 99% of the time, because they require no drivers.
