Default Anyone Using the Apple Wireless Keyboard?

Like the idea, but I see it doesn't have a keypad, so is controlling PT too much of a pain without the keypad?

Thanks
Tom

Personally... I forewent the wireless for that reason. I have no clue why Apple won't release a wireless keyboard with a number pad... but it's why I stuck with the wired version. Not being able to hop between markers on the fly without dragging the damn mouse around is a real game killer for me... not to mention the insane amount of other things the numberpad is useful for.

There are, of course, separate numberpads available, even ones that can be used on an iphone/ipod/ipad... but why should I have to add yet another battery draining wireless peripheral? Apple is just silly sometimes...

I'm using one of the old school, Apple wireless keyboards from back in 2007. It's not as visually appealing as one of the newer models as far as aesthetics are concerned, but it still works well. Even though I purchased a newer keyboard myself, I still use the old one quite a bit because of the number pad. It's amazing how quickly you become accustomed to using the short cuts that require it.

I was using the thin wireless keyboard on my laptop when at home for 2 years. Changed back to the older Bluetooth full-size keyboard for the markers shortcuts and other little goodies.

Still have the G5 style Apple Wireless keyboard. I do wish that they would make a thin wireless fullsize keyboard.

But Hey! I can buy a "Magic Trackpad"

Oh wait... I was using a wireless keyboard and a wireless mighty mouse to get away from from my laptops track pad...

Someone please convince Steve that number pads are "Magic".
