I searched for the tiniest and most 'usable' one ... Stumbled across the Apple Wireless Keyboard. I bought the french version (azerty keyboard) but somehow the french layout is not good to code with. Bought the regular qwerty version, and the typing is really good ! The only thing i'm not real happy about is batteries life ... at most 2 weeks in intensive use. But its light, and fits in my backpack.

Are there any problems to use the apple keyboard on the UX under Windows XP or Linux?

No but that sounds a lot like the VGP-KBC1 for the U series VAIO. That is not bluetooth. I have that and I love it but the "J" key broke, that is the reason why I got the new keyboard I have now.


I have the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 and I love it. It doesn't fold but it is light and it comes with a separate number pad (also bluetooth). The pitch and stroke of the keys is great. I thinking of buying the Sony Bluetooth keyboard also.

and I'm very very happy with it:foldable bluetooth, and even charges with usb cable, so perfect for use at home or on the go.

The Sony folding keyboard is one of the best I've ever used... but it is USB. I would love a folding bluetooth keyboard that didn't suck. I had the iGo/Stowaway one which has been rebranded several times, I think it is the same as the iPaq one. Anyway the iGo/Stowaway keyboard folds up small which is cool but it sucks to type on. I have owned the laser keyboard also, that thing is cool but pretty useless. I love the Microsoft BT keyboard and I'm really tempted to order the Sony BT keyboard. Neither of those fold but they both offer a great key layout, no need to hit an Fn key to type a number.

i ser nokia's SU-8W bluetooth foldaway keyboard. seems to work a treat. Only issue is it turns of to save power when not used, and requires manual power on before you can resume typing again

That one looks nice but I don't like pressing Fn to type an number or Fn + Shift to type a symbol. I am a programmer so symbols are particularly important to me. A dedicated number row is a must.

That reminds me of one of the things I love about the Microsoft BT keyboard... the separate dedicated number that is about the size of a calculator.
