I have the DiNovo Edge for Windows, but I'll probably sell it or something and get one of these. I really like it a lot. I could never live without the trackpad for HTPC. I also like the volume slider and feel of the keys. It's just a really nice keyboard.


I'm considering doing the same with mine. Don't know if there would be much point in doing that though. It does everything I need it to do. Wonder if the drivers for the Mac version would work with the Windows version.

I was thinking the same thing. It might be worth a shot.

I've been using the DiNovo Edge since I have my Mini (Windows version of course), about 6 months ago. I love it. It's awesome. There might be some keys that don't work with the Mac, but it semms I don't use them because I didn't realise. One thing I DID notice though, and that I dislike, is that I cannot control the volume with the volume slider when you use optical audio. I absolutely have to use my remote on the receiver (if anyone knows a solution for this, let me know Very Happy ). But that's not that big a deal. I'd use the remote anyway when watching TV or a movie...

The big question is, is this a prelude to a DiNovo Mini Mac edition?

I'm not buying it as I think one has to use Logitech software to make the special buttons work. I had the former Mac special keyboard from Logitech and the software just sucked! I'm using the new Mac keyboard and I think that's just excellent!

I've never been a real fan of the LCC either. It always seem to play tricks with my mouse tracking. I might be willing to give it another try though. You can send my free diNovo Edge for Mac to... Smile

Engadget just posted a gallery comparing the PC diNovo with the Mac version. They also have some pictures of the Logitech Control Center.

Nice pictures, but I think 1 and 8 could be confusing. The diNovo Edge for Windows is the one with an orange back. It's shown on the bottom in picture 1.

Because you missed out on the Mac version, or because you hate it? You kinda lost me.


Scooper, I love it. It would be better if it was Mac specific is all.

Sorry if my use of gay offended anyone. But it's simply an expression. People use terms like lame, retarded and stupid all the time. Should that also offend people who are, or know people who are disabled, mentally challenged or not smart? Sorry again but it's just an expression.


dude, put down the shovel. yes, each of those "expressions" are offensive.

anyway, does anyone know whether this has any implications for Dinovo Mini PC-version owners? Will there be support/software that will be helpful in running that device on a Mac?
