Mac on SBS - The Wireless Keyboard

Like the Mighty Mouse, the wired keyboard that came with this iMac has seen better days.

Keys were very sticky and sometimes fired twice on the "i" which kinda drove me nuts when trying to get a note or post together quickly.

The new Apple Wireless Keyboard utilizes Bluetooth to accomplish its communication tasks with the iMac.

Again, the setup was flawless.

There was one extra step in the keyboard's setup versus the Wireless Mighty Mouse though: We had to type in a key code to finalize the keyboard's connection with the iMac.

Once that was done, the new keyboard was connected and working. The wired keyboard as well as the old Mighty Mouse are now a shop spares!

The key action is significantly better on the new wireless keyboard versus the old wired one. The old one may have had a few close encounters with some soft drinks! :D

All in all, the wireless keyboard is a good option.

With it, and the Wireless Mighty Mouse, cable clutter is all but eliminated.
