    Best rf remote compatible with frontrow?

    Hey guys
    I just got a new (to me) car (1999 saturn SL2) so I've been thinking more and more about getting a computer running in it. I've decided to go with a mac mini for sure and get front row running on it. I may wait for an intel mac mini, esp. since front row will probably be officially supported on it (I'm guessing). My question is, though, that if I decide to go with a powerpc mini, what remote should I use? Criteria is it has to be RF, compatable with front row and be fairly small (small enough to either mount on the steering wheel or close to it). I know there are threads about remotes, but I couldn't seem to quite get a definative answer. Would either the griffin airclick or the macally keypoint work? Is there a better one?
    I think this question is still valid even if I do wait, though, because I think the remote apple includes with the iMac/macbook pro is IR. and I want to mount the mac mini in the armrest/center console, if possible.

    Cool. I think the keypoint probably looks the best to me.
