Hey I am new here and new to apple so excuse my 'noobness' this one or flame me its cool :)
I just got an Iphone and probably getting the iphone this week (I read comics and that's really all I need it for.)

I saw they mac keyboards and track pads and thought that would be good for my pc/media centre. I looked around and all the reviews say they suck in general? Can anyone share there thoughts on how they are to use in general and also how they go on a pc.

Before anyone says get a mac... I might for my next purchase I just spent ALOT of cash on a new pc so its years away.
Any help would be great thanks

Pesonally I love my Mac keyboard and new trackpad. Use them on my iMac daily and wouldn't change them for anything else.

However..... I also have several PCs including one dedicated as a media box attached to my TV.

Personally..... for the amount of use I get from the keyboard on the media box I use one of these:
Scan.co.uk: ACK-KB-540U+ mini keyboard with integrated touch p - Keysonic ACK-KB-540U+ Black Matt Softskin Mini keyboard with integrated touchpad - USB (http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Keysonic-ACK-KB-540Uplus-Black-Matt-Softskin-Mini-keyboard-with-integrated-touchpad-USB)

I wouldn't use one on a dedicated desktop machine but for occasional media centre use it's perfect.

But as with any interface device it's down to a lot of personal preference.
