apple keyboard on PC?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I want to get that new Apple brushed aluminum keyboard for my computer because... well, it looks incredible.

(This one: http://cache.gizmodo.com/assets/reso...keyboard-1.jpg )

Can I get the wired apple keyboard to work on my PC?

the short answer is YES

It is what I use, and it is the nicest I have ever used. they come with a USB extension cord for the keyboard as well I think it's 3 feet long.

Can you remap the apple keys to their Windows equivalents?

Yes, it'll work as it should. Check out the wireless one too, it's gorgeous.

they maped correctly for me just by plugging it in. but I did try to remap some of the extra function keys to work as media keys and that did seem to work, i was using sharp keys. if there is something better please let me know

what's your point?

I know it plugs in, I'm just not sure if the keys are mapped correctly.


But according to everyone else, it should work

any known bugs with it?

Yes it works perfectly, I use that EXACT keyboard with my system. Now you might want to use a program called KeyTweak as you don't have a PrintScreen button.

do you have the wired version or the wireless one? I might want to get that one instead.
