I love my iMac, but, man, the keyboard and mouse have GOT to go. I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for a Macintel keyboard and mouse replacement, preferably something for a man on a budget. I don't want to run into compatibility or driver problems.

I really like my Saitek Gaming Keyboard for my Windows machine.

I've been trying to get by

I've been trying to get by with the standard Mac keyboard but replaced the mouse with a Logitech laser. That helped a lot, but I'm still unhappy with the keyboard.

Have you made a choice yet?

Have you made a choice yet? Any keyboard & mouse works fine on the mac and you can even swap the command/windows and alt/option keys if you want them in the same place as the Apple keyboard.

Logitech has Mac software you can install to take advantage of extra features... however at the time Leopard came out it had compatibility problems and I removed it from my system. (They were installing a 3rd party piece of software that relies on unsupported hacks deep in the system)

Thanks

Thanks, Mark! I was looking at some of those as well. There's one keyboard I've read a lot about; some type of "ultimate" Mac keyboard that's supposed to be reminiscent of the "good ol'" days of one of Mac's classic keyboards. It looked interesting, but I read mixed reviews.

Like I said, I really like the tactility of my Saitek gaming keyboard, so I might just try to hook that up and see what happens. I still don't felt that I've met my "perfect" mouse and keyboard combo, but the Saitek is close.

good logitech wireless dual Win/OSX keyboards

There's quite a few logitech combinations that are dual Win/OSX keyboards I have quite a few of them at home and they work great. Even with key switches between mac and pc.
