Looking to get a new keyboard and mouse. Leaning towards the Logitech MX Revolution mouse but can't decide on which keyboard to get. Any suggestions? What is the best keyboard for a mac?

    I personally think that the Apple Aluminum USB keyboard is one of the best around.

    The Logitech MX Revolution is my choice of mice.

    I have the aluminum Apple keyboard. However, I find it difficult to type fast. I make so many mistakes. Possibly the keys are too close together. I have big hands. It is my least favorite keyboard. I, too, am looking for a new keyboard.

    try the older Apple USB keyboards, like the white one that shipped originally with the G5 series and 2006 mac pro.

    The keys are big and deep.

    What about Microsoft brand keyboard? <$30, you can get a wireless mouse and keyboard. It's OS X compatible.
