Hello,

Does anyone know if it is possible to use the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard with a WinXP SP2 PC? And which would be the recommended bluetooth USB key? Linksys or DLink.

Thanks in advance.

Haven't had first hand experience, but since the keyboards have different keys I wouldn't be so sure. If you got one it would be better to sell it on an auction site for example, and get a Windows keyboard, from either Microsoft or Logitech.

well i use a standard black-keyed apple usb keyboard at the moment with my pc, and it works just fine. Only problems i've had is not being able to remap F13 F14 and F15 to the Print Screen and other PC keys, and the keyboard USB slots wont work. But, these are minors. So i guess i'll try the bluetooth keyboard, if it doesn't work, i'll ebay it.

OK, so I now have the Apple Bluetooth keyboard on my PC and it works just fine. I'm using a D-Link DBT-120 bluetooth adaptor. It also happens to come in packaging that says its "For Mac", no mention of windows, but works fine when pluggin n playin on win xp sp2.

A nice lil bonus, that I didn't think of b4, is that I can now control my PC from my Sony Ericsson K700i! Probably never need to, but hey, thats besides the point right? ;)
