Default I'm buying an Apple Keyboard for my PC

They just look so nice. I love the Chiclet keys and my fingers are small so they will be perfect. The wired version has the CTRL button where its suppose to be and you can download a program to make use of the extra f13 keys and such to do stuff like printscreen and volume control.

Its only 50 bucks too.

Why not just buy a mechanical.

Did this on a build for a friend who needed windows and insisted that she needed an apple keyboard. You can use key mapping software to make all of the keys work properly and she never had any problems with it.

That being said... If you like Chiclet keyboards (which I #$^@ing hate typing on) Logitech makes a few different models and you can have one that is wireless, illuminated, washable or even solar powered...

The apple keyboard really doesn't go well with very many monitors and mice... I know if I had an apple keyboard it would look pretty strange with my other peripherals. I'd keep that in mind.

I was actually looking at doing a build that was white/silver. These components in terms of aesthetics seem to match alright imho.

Case - Lian Li v354a (swap out blue LED fans for whites)
Monitor - AOC I2757FH
Mouse/KB - Apple wired + Logitech G600(white)/Logitech M110 (white)

What do you think?
