    i would think it would as long as it follows standards. It should just appear as an ascii bluetooth keyboard. I can't tell how big it is. how does it compare to the new apple bluetooth keyboard?

    It's smaller and it has a little trackpad on the top right.

    I looked for drivers at the Logitech site before I posted, and it doesn't have Mac drivers, so I wondered if the trackpad/pointer would work without?

    Theoretically, a bluetooth keyboard is a bluetooth keyboard and the same for a mouse/trackpad unless they did something ultra-proprietary with it.

    I could be wrong, but I suspect the driver package may give you some capability like shortcuts or the ability to change how long the backlight stays on. It will likely work without drivers.

    When using the built in dongle, the keyboard becomes a normal "virtual cabled" usb keyboard and mouse (meaning it doesn't use standard bluetooth convention. Everything is built in). If any standard keyboard/mouse works, this one will too. Oh yeah, it's also worth every penny!

    Chances are it will also pair up to your internal bluetooth, but at the very least, you can use the included dongle worst case.
    My opinion is my own.

    my logitech web cam is not supported for the mac os but it works fine just comes up as an "unknown usb device" and everything works. i cant do any of the like sepia, old school camera, etc stuff but it works fine in all apps. It should be about the same for your keyboard
    Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!

    I have a DiNovo Edge BT keyboard for my mac mini HTPC. Just like that but only bigger, trackpad and all. Works just fine out fo the box with my Mac, no drivers needed. There are a few specialty keys that would only work with drivers, but the volume slider, arrows, and everything I really needed did the job.

    I was able to use this when I first got it in OSX as both a keyboard and to control Front Row. I now use it in XP as just a keyboard. It's about 1/4 the size of the apple bluetooth keyboard. The advantage with using the mini keyboard with XP is it has a backsace and it can send ctrl-alt-del when windows is misbehaving.....

    This is something I never considered. I guess it's better to use the diNovo dongle, rather than the separate BT dongle, as it should work at boot time as well.
