Stop Griffin iCurve laptop typing bounce
Authored by: osxpounder on Jul 13, '07 09:17:24AM

I like wave keyboards, the kind that let my hands assume a more natural posture [the doctor recommended them, and they've been part of a successful set up that's helped avoid wrist and hand pain for years since].

On this site's forum, a smart user named CAlvarez clued me in on the Microsoft Natural Multimedia Wireless keyboard [what a long name]. As CAlvarez says, it works great with Macs [we get all the usual keys -- volume, mute, eject -- and then some], and the wireless part, well I could take it or leave it, it only works about a foot away from the receiver, but the keyboard's been fantastic with all Macs I've tried, incl. my MacBook Pro and an old G4.

It takes a USB port and needs power from it [meaning it needs a left port on my MBP], but it works fine through my powered USB hub, too.

It felt weird buying a Microsoft product for my Mac, but hey, there weren't a lot of choices, and CAlvarez was right about this one being the best choice for the money. I've since bought a wired version for my office Mac, too.
