View Full Version : Apple Keyboard With Pc?

I've always loved mac keyboards.

I have a PC laptop from a long time ago that has a broken screen. I plan on using it as a desktop machine with its own mouse, keyboard and monitor plugged in.

Can I use a mac keyboard to plug it in say using PS2 or USB? If not are there any connectors that will let me do it?

I've used my Apple keyboard with my Dell laptop via USB no problems at all! :thumbup:

the mac keyboard (pro keyboard) is a standard usb device, plug her in and it'll be exactly the same, if you're using xp, the volume and mute buttons will even work!

Oh yeah, the only big difference is now the apple key becomes a windows key

have fun man.

Yep same here.

The 'clear' key is the numlock in Windoze.

Awesome!! Thanks guys that's great!!!

At $50 it's a bit dearer but I'm willing to pay the extra $20-30 for that tactile feel - considering it's the main input device I use on a personal computer (as opposed to work).

Woooohooo!! Thanks again!
