I recently purchased this keyboard.

Anyone have any experience with it? I have not received it as of yet. Bought it on a whim, really. (actually, some link from here directed me there...although I can not remember the thread right now)

Let us know if you like it. The Tactile Pro, that they also make, is sort of univerally recognized as the best Mac keyboard made.

Will do. Hard to justify $100 for a keyboard when they have another for under a third of the price with the control key in the proper place. Smile

I am using a logitech wireless desktop set with my Mini right now. It works great and has native OS X drivers (I don't know if they're 1.04 compatible). The keys are also labeled for both Windows and OS X. The keyboard and mouse shortcuts can also be configured with the software. The only problem is the keyboard is rather large.

I couldn't find it as a current product on Logitech's website, but you might be able to find it on eBay or some other online retailer. I just know that it came with the MX700 mouse.

I'd love to see an nice OS X keyboard that was ergonomic (split) having it bluetooth would be great too.

Well, the "OS X Keyboard" showed up on my doorstep this evening. Still waiting for my new mouse, so I haven't plugged it into the mini as of yet. However, I did type on it for a bit to get a feel for it and so far, I LIKE IT! (and, as mentioned before, I really like having the control key in the proper place.)

Well, I have been using the OS X keyboard from Matias for a couple of days now.

The keys have just the right resistance (IMHO) and the keyboard overall is fairly quiet...EXCEPT, that the space bar makes a VERY loud click whenever pressed. I do not use it in an area where I need to be relatively quiet, so it is not a big deal for me...however, it might be annoying to others who are less tolerant.

I love the feel of the keys and having the Control key in the proper place is always a good thing. Until something better comes along, I will definitely be sticking with this one.
