    I read that you can move it from mac pro to ipad... that is why I bought it... but that you have to pair it each time... I do not know how much trouble that will be yet.

    I would love to be able to have 1 keyboard that I can press a button or something and have it type on the iPad then switch it back to the mac.
    Thanks everyone for your responses!

    I also have the same question as gentlefury. I use the wireless keyboard with my iMac and I was wondering how easy it would be to use the same keyboard, moving it back and forth between the Mac and iPad.

    It would be nice to save $69.

    I couldn't get it linked to my iPad. Maybe because it's still linked to my MacBook Pro.
    (and yes, the MacBook is turned off). I will release the BT-link today and try it then again.
    But thanks again for the tip with the eject button. I didn't know that.
    Most likely written on my iPad

    Can the wireless keyboard be used with a bluetooth abled PC?

    The only way you can use it on two units is if they are out of range of each other.

    If they are within the 33 ft range of BT then you will only be able to pair it with one of them.

    I'm looking for a bluetooth keyboard that is roughly the same width as my iPad (landscape). Is anyone using other (non-Apple) keyboards with their iPads?

    How about bluetooth mice or touchpads? Anything out there?

    You may want to look at this one: diNovo Mini?

    Bluetooth mice/touchpads are available, but will not work on the iPad. To be honest, many bluetooth mice are not that great when compared to a really good RF mouse. They cost more money and are not as reliable. However, they are getting better and the Apple models are among the best.

    Finally got my Apple Wireless KB today.
    (used - Ebay. Love the way it works, including controlling the brightness, volume ipod control)

    Worked great!

    after I put the batteries in the other direction.
    Seemed like the non-intuitive direction to me.

    Actually, I don't have a wireless keyboard because I am used to typing through the virtual keyboard of my iPad. Well, if you are one of those people who keeps on complaining about the iPad having no external keyboard, then I should say that you can buy the keyboard that you are looking for as long as it's from Apple.
