Logitech brings the power of light to Mac users with the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac. With the same award-winning design and feature set as the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750, this newest version – available in multiple colors – makes battery hassles a thing of the past thanks to its onboard solar cells that power the keyboard using ambient light.

“We hear from consumers all the time that they want to see more Mac products from us,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “I’m proud to say we’ve listened, and are excited to offer one of our most innovative keyboards designed specifically for Mac users.”

Seriously? They sell keyboards and mice, they all already work with macs. Hell I'm using a standard logitch keyboard right now on my mac at the office! I refuse to believe that Mac users are that stupid that they won't use a different keyboard with their computer unless it says "For Mac" on it...

+1000 He had to ask the question, not sure if his next pc would be a Mac, once you start doubting there is only one path left to choose, the path to enlightenment and MS junkloads then upgrade from Win7 ultimate to Win XP 32/64.

I was unfortunate enough to go through the same thing a few years back with a PB G4 17" 1.5ghz ati1600 and look at me know, there is life after Mac.
Mac's used to be good, Apple's well what you see is what you get today.

It is really sad when your 60 year old mother that is computer illiterate has to teach the 3rd / top level Apple tech support person how to fix something. :nutkick:

If a Mac user is "smart" enough to believe that Apples are not common PCs but are special PCs that are made with quality parts, thus the premium cost. Then they are "smart" enough to believe they must buy only "For Mac" items.

How many Mac users does it take to screw in a light bulb?

1 to look to see if there is an app for it.
1 to call Applecare
1 tech support agent to escalate it to tier 2 support
then finally 1 disgruntled tier 2 support agent to say "I'm sorry but Apple does not support removing the existing lightbulb to install a new lightbulb unless done by a certified Apple technician."

As someone who has been a Mac user and enthusiast since '84, I really take offense to that. To me, your rant is almost as bad as if someone posted a rant about "How many (insert religion/skin color/place of origin/etc) people does it take to screw in a light bulb?". Tell me a little more about yourself and I can customize that for you. Ignorance is ignorance, no matter how you cut it. Ignorance and hatred go hand in hand.

No one is being ignorant or hateful, please grow a sense of humor, and learn to appreciate that for what it is, satire. . . I mean it's only a stereotype right ? Or are you angry because it rings true ? I mean one could say anger and hatred walk hand in hand.

Also back to topic please.

Infinite power!


actually my previous housemate had one of these keyboards, and the light from his monitor did provide a minimal recharging level so that it never went flat. it'd charge back to full in the light, but monitor/room lights prevented it going flat in the first palce.

(he has the PC version, ofc)

Actually I grew up on Apple IIe/IIgs that my Dad brought home from his school during the summer. Was die hard Mac lover all my life. When the family could finally afford a computer, we bought a LCII. Then moved up to a Performa years later. My first Mac that was mine only was a Beige G3. Modded and upgraded the heck out of it and loved it. Then got an iBook G3, replaced with G4 by Applecare. Then picked up a Cube, modded it out. Stuffed a 7447 and Geforce 3 into it. Last Mac was probably my other favorite other than Cube. Bought a good condition Quicksilver off ebay.

I'm not a PC weenie that has never used Macs. My anger at Apple is more justified. I'd rather have the Apple of a decade ago back, the one which seemed to give a damn about their customers. Not the gadget maker monstrosity that Jobs has created.

No one is being ignorant or hateful, please grow a sense of humor, and learn to appreciate that for what it is, satire. . . I mean it's only a stereotype right ? Or are you angry because it rings true ? I mean one could say anger and hatred walk hand in hand.

Also back to topic please.
Partial truth but mostly satire. Took me a few mins to think of a tier 2 support answer for that tho. I finally remembered an answer I got from Apple when I was asking a question on my Beige regarding upgrades.

Sadly, I've found more bonehead Mac users nowadays than ever. Every Mac user I knew years ago was always in the know or at least knew more than basic use. Now, its like a flood of people that are impressed by shiny objects. The iPod/iPhone generation. Such a shame they killed MacAddict Magazine. Used to be a real tech mag years back. Lot of great hacking tips and mods. Then goofy stuff like the staff taking a PC and beating it with a baseball bat till their knuckles bled. Then it became MacLife and got...boring. Issue after issue dedicated to iPods or pointless crap.

The only problem I have using a PC keyboard on my iMac is the lack of the eject button. Otherwise, everything works fine.

I know. Still not as nice as the real eject button. Not big enough of a difference for me to change to the stupid chiclet keyboards, tho. I did rather like my white Apple keyboard, even used one on my PC for a while. But they die too easily for me to scrape another one up.

i just tried that on PC, and am very sad it didnt work :(
On the PC you have to hit the DVD drive with a hammer. PC's are just more primative that way.
