I've been looking around for a black keyboard... cant find a good one (from pictures in newegg.com) I am not really a Mac fan but I like the apple pro keyboard... it's nice and simple..

is there anyway that I can hook it up to PC under XP w/o any trouble?? I want to make sure first before I purchase one (the keyboard is quite expensive, around $45)

either that or does anyone know any company produce keyboard that look like mac but for PC??

thanks alot,

if its a USB keyboard it should be fine, and if it isnt you should be able to find windows drivers but im quite sure it will work. And the fkeys above 12 can be programmed to something else (what the location would be on a win kb) and other things can be added with reg edits i belive but i dont know anything about this other than its existance.

It's USB, and I'm pretty sure it'd work. You can use a PC USB keyboard on a Mac without any problems whatsoever, should work vice versa.
