  • Yes but the function keys will not work. Also the clear button works as the NUM Lock button.

  • it kinda depends on what you have on the PC.
    when Windows XP, it can be used but you may have to install the drivers before connecting the keyboard, not all versions of XP will recognize it.

    with 7, it should work pretty much out-of-the-box, but the drivers would be useful to get all the keys to work, F1 through F12 should work as normal, but the other F# keys won't do anything without the drivers, the eject-key doesn't work without the drivers either.

    with Linux, it will work but make sure you change the keyboard layout to "US English (mac)" or "US English (Macintosh)" depending on the version.
    (when not using the US English version one should obliviously replace "US English" with the layout of the keyboard, so in my case it would be "Dutch (mac)" or "Dutch (Macintosh)")

  • Yes but 2 my experiece If you are using windows 7 64 bit use the Leopard OSX disc, particularlly 10.5.4.. Open the disc and go to the bootcamp folder, open it then open the drivers folder. Finally open the Apple folder and click on the bootcamp 64 installer and reboot.

  • Yes. The Only Thing Is That You Cant Use The iTunes Controls. Other Then That, It Works Perfectly. I Have One, And Im Using A PC. So That Gives You An Idea. Great Buy. 5 Stars

    This is true... but you don't need to install the whole of bootcamp.... - you can have the function keys working.
