    natural keyboard
    im looking for a new keyboard for my mac mini. im currently using the bluetooth keyboard, but i need a natural style split keyboard. i dont know of any bluetooth naturals out there, so which regular natural keyboard will work with the osx operating system?

    the adesso keyboard is quite expensive so i was looking at getting a microsoft, but will the natural keyboard elite usb work with tiger correctly?

    TIA!

    Microsoft and Logitech have an OSX Driver that re-maps the keys for their keyboards so they all work properly with OSX. Just download the driver from Microsoft if you go with their natural. The basic keys would all work anyway, just a few of the special ones need re-mapping. The driver takes care of that. I have a close friend who used that very Microsoft keyboard on his Dual G5 and his wifes IMac G5 and they work perfectally.

    Yep I use a Microsoft Natural keyboard with Tiger and it works great. I use the wireless version also.

    So the windows key on the keyboard becomes the command key?

    I like the logitech wireless natural keyboard, it has the Apple keys labeled as well as the Windows ones. I also have the Microsoft one, I wouldn't recommend it, it is kind of annoying how it defaults to the secondary functions of the function keys.

    Do your command and option keys work on boot? I have a Logitech Elite and they do not.
