    It would actually make a lot of sense if they did ship with a different mouse and keyboard. The "pro" was dropped from the current kb/mouse just recently. At the time, the move didn't make a whole lot of sense (why change the name without changing the product?) but it looks like the "pro" is being reserved for the really pro stuff.... At least I hope.



    Good find.

    Maybe it'll be a two button mouse to fully take advantage of "expose." Steve Jobs did say one could assign an expose function to the second button on a two button mouse, if one had such a mouse.

    I'm sure Jobs doesn't want users to buy a kensignton mouse just to use "expose" properly.

    Not to mention, the eMac's keyboard is used in the new G5 commercial.

    Sorry to be a pessimist, but I doubt that new displays and new keyboards will be realeased independently from the G5. I'm expecting new displays/G5s in late January.

    Another reason they'd need to update their mice, keyboards and displays is that they only have USB 1.1 hubs in them. Unless for some reason a USB 2.0 hub is impossible.

    Anodized Alu (or lookalike material) Pro Mouse and Keyboard, where the keyboard also have the blue illumination when it gets dark, like the 17" TiBook.



    PLEASE!

    On the right under hardware accesories: Apple PRO Keyboard and Apple PRO mouse.

    I actually just got the new keyboard today (decided to get one to go with my PowerBook). I dig it. It's pretty solid, compact, and fairly stylish. The space bar comes detached (I assume it's supposed to) and just clicks in. I used the two USB ports on the back for my Kensington flylight and my mouse.



    The space bar kinda has this funky, see-saw kinda thing going on. You have to press near the middle to get the space tho, but maybe I just need to break it in. I think it's a pretty good value. Just my 2 cents.

    I hope that was a joke.

    I gotta buy a new keyboard, cuz I spilled water on my black key one the other day : The only thing i don't like about the new white ones is they look like they will get dirty real fast, judging from one we have here at work \ or maybe that person just has dirty fingers all the time

    lol...well kinda. It's not really see-sawing...just very springy. Does anyone else notice this too? I don't think it's broken, but the space bar is definitely "softer" for lack of a better word.

    Ast3r3x hells yea they could pull it off. You know how the kids are these days with their hot Euro import cars have underneath lighting, and the stereo ("system") panel is all lit up and so are the car controls. HP and Dell laptops also sport this lighting around keys, looks snazzy at night but kind of annoying after 5 seconds. Apple could pull this off, I can DEFINITELY see my 12" with lighting like the 17" but snazzier and an external keyboard for it with jazzy lighting also. HELLS YEA. Optical lighting sensors would be nice but I dunno how much that'd add to the cost, the 17" is wicked..expensive.

    They get looking dirty pretty fast, now don't they? At least you know when to clean it.

    they could do "aluminum colored" mice and keyboards by painting the inside of clear plastic pieces, like the iBook outer plastic shell... maybe a good idea?

    I would like to see them change the color of the keys on the keyboard and the color of the mouse at a bare minimum.



    I doubt that even that minor change will hapen.

    The Pro Kbd/Mouse is dead.



    The G5 devnote says that it comes with an Apple Kbd/Mouse, non-Pro.



    There is no uncertainty about this, anywhere you see "Pro" is a typo.
