    Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse
    I heard that in order to get the keyboard and mouse to work, you need to pair them with the computer. I ordered the bluetooth mouse and keyboard along with my computer(under Apple Keyboard and Mouse).. Does this mean that it only comes with the bluetooth keyboard and mouse, or does it come with the wired mouse and keyboard, and the bluetooth ones....Since I NEED a wired keyboard to pair the Wireless keyboard..I certainly apple thought about this!

    I'm starting to get worried about the choice of the bluetooth devices, since I'm reading a lot about lagging, not being able to wake it from sleep, etc.. Someone please tell me I didn't just waste $99!!

    I can't answer your first question, but I can tell you that all wireless keyboards and mice have issues with loss of connection, lag, and not waking from sleep. However, bluetooth tends to be a bit more reliable than other wireless devices.

    I guess I'll just wait until it comes(like 2-3 days from now) to find out. If I am unhappy, I'll call them, however Apple has never ceased to amaze me with their products, so I'll just have faith in them
