I need to get a USB keyboard for my Lombard laptop,
I'm just not sure which one is the best one to buy.
Which USB keyboards should I avoid?

I've been looking at the old purple iMac USB keyboards with
the black keys and the puck mice...Are they any good?

I've seen them "New" for about $47. cad plus tax & shipping

Thanks in advance for any help.

dolawren, one thing I can tell you is that you will love to hate the "puck" style mouse. I hated the darn things because you never knew where it would point, unless you looked down and saw how you had gripped it.

As for the iMac keyboards, I still use an original iMac keyboard because the are smaller than the standard board. I find I can carry it with me in my computer bag. I did so with my Lombard G3 bronze Powerbook and I still do today with my G4 Al Powerbook.

Cheers.

I've never liked the puck mice either...But it comes with it,
I like the idea of a small USB keyboard though.

The keyboard that I'm using with my Beige is actually an old
ADB APPLE KEYBOARD II, I really like the compactness of it
and would like the compactness in a USB keyboard as well.

If the iMac keyboard is the way to go...Then I guess I'll
check further into one then.

Thanks.
