  • can anyone recommend a wireless keyboard/trackpad combo that will work with a mac mini?

  • apples? or do you want them in one piece? I think separated would be better ergonomics though

  • .

  • One piece for easy use when it's connected to the TV.

  • I’ve got a Logitech k400. I’m pretty sure it works with a mac for standard functions. Some of the extra options that need the Logitech software might not work.

  • Any opinions on US vs UK keyboard layouts? Final hurdle of new-Mac purchasing decision.

  • I use a K400 on Ubuntu and Windows (no Logitech software installed) and it's fine. Imagine it should be on Mac too.

    It's a good keyboard for a media PC, I wouldn't use it for something more keyboard intensive.

  • Any opinions on US vs UK keyboard layouts?

    I think they're identical, just the US has the Escape top left corner, UK version has Brexit.

  • I'll get my coat.

  • UK keyboards are better as they have one more key.

    But seriously I don't understand why you're asking this - shouldn't you just buy what you're used to? If you're British, live in Britain and have no plans to move to the US why would you buy a US version?

  • So I moved my iPhone back ups off my hard drive and onto another drive i have in my computer but now I cant get them to back up to it. I followed the instructions online and can see the link it has in the original location the back ups were in.

    Anyone got ideas where i have potentially went wrong?

  • Jeez, tough crowd.
    Just asking if any Brits use the US keyboard and find any benefits from it. I'm living in Australia atm where US keyboards are the standard, and easier to come by, but I've always used a UK keyboard other than at work here. I like the larger return key on the UK keyboard, but prefer the less wasteful up/down/left/right area on the US ones. But, my apologies for adding needless padding to your day.

  • You sound tense.
    Here's a picture of a kitten to help you relax -

  • Thanks all. Can someone with a K400 try theirs with a Mac for me?

  • Jeez, tough crowd.

    Sorry, that wasn't meant to sound grumpy.

    With the additional info the question makes sense - it still sounds like you want a UK one though really?

  • Valid question. Since living in the UK I prefer a UK keyboard to a Swedish one. Luckily the physical layout is the same, so I'm buying Swedish keyboards but use them as English ones.

    I've tried selling a MacBook here with a UK keyboard and it was a pita, everyone assumed it was nicked!

  • Anyone interested in buying my LG UltraFine 5k? Thinking around £650?

  • hey Chris. Maybe... remind me why you're selling it?
