    When I am out and about i use the ipad to write my short stories. I find the amount of the screen that the ipad keyboard takes up very limiting, so I have thought about using a bluetooth keyboard.

    Can anyone recommend one, which is also portable as the ipad?

    Of course there is the apple wireless one. And there is the Microsoft 6000 Bluetooth that staples has for 50$ I have been thinking of getting for my home pc.

    I have the Freedom Keyboard. I wanted one that folded up and would fit in my bag. It isn't a great keyboard, but it is small. Personally if you have the space, I would go with the Apple wireless one.

    Apple Keyboard

    I started using my Think Outside folding bluetooth keyboard but it was a little flaky and did not have the additional functions of the Apple keyboard (brightness, volume, etc.). After a couple of weeks including one frustrating day of taking notes with a customer while it kept repeating characters and some other weird issues, I ran to get the Apple keyboard and have not looked back.

    I need to find a nice case to protect the keyboard as I travel a lot though.

    Microsoft 6000 Bluetooth

    Microsoft 6000 Bluetooth

    Do a Google search and you will see this is a better keyboard than the Apple one, even for the Mac and the iPad.

    I bought one and I agree. You also get a separate bluetooth keypad if you need to enter a ton of numbers. Both can sync at the same time to the iPad.

    I like the look of the freedom I-connect because I travel a lot. The iPad has replaced my laptop in almost everything, and if i can get a compact keyboard, thats it, my laptop is going on ebay.

    Ive done a search and the freedom is availiable in my local maplins for fifty pounds, so I may go that route.

    The Think Outside folding keyboard works well as probably the most portable option that is still practical. The laser/projector KB packs even smaller, but I have yet to try it. Would be cool for the novelty of it. At home, I'm using the Microsoft Entertainment 7000. I prefer the curved ergo shape.

    Hey 4phun, how do you get them both to sync at the same time, im having trouble with that. i can only seem to get one or the other working, and from what i can tell by other forums, ppl are having the same issue:/
