Hi all,
I wanna connect an external keyboard to my Powerbook. Are there other keyboards compatible with Macs other than the Apple keyboards?

All input most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Aluminum Powerbook, 125Ghz, Super drive, 80Gb, Mac OS X (10.4.11), iMac 800Mhz, 2x5G iPods, iLife 08, 2 months of Leopard

    Most if not all external USB keyboards will work with your computer. Some functionality may not be supported, such as ejecting CDs with a dedicated keystroke.

    OK, update.

    I got a non-Mac keyboard for my PB at about a third of the price of an Apple keyboard, but in truly ironic fashion I lost about a third of the functions. I lost the volume controls, eject button and a bit of other stuff. Everything else works fine. The real kicker is, the Apple Command key is the Windoze key! "OMG!" I can't have that! I'm going to have to get a white-out pen and paint an apple on the keys.

    And, of course, no USBs in the keyboard! DOH!
