May be of interest to Mac owners. Old style bluetooth keyboard for £19 instore at Tesco - Bristol Hengrove. Had about 5 in the clearance section. Couldn't see any online so assume instore only. Seems quite solidly built.

Did manage to get it working with a dell 1525 running vista but needs to be paired again on re boot so probably not worth it for PC users. Had thought it may be an option with the recent Acer Revo offer with a usb bluetooth dongle.

The title: "Old Style Apple Bluetooth Keyboard"
Is it a keyboard in the style of the old Apple keyboard?- or is it the Apple keyboard?

Sorry, little confused.

its the old apple keyboard

It's the M9270B/A as in the picture and not this one apple.com/key…rd/

Just a note to confirm you can get it to recognise the keyboard on re-boot without pairing again by simply powering it off and on again (the keyboard) so may be ok for HTPC use.

this looks good.

great price! got a pic?

As someone who has used both this old Apple keyboard and the newer one, I'd implore everyone to avoid this keyboard. It really is quite poor. It's annoyingly loud. It's rubbish to type on. You're far better off paying the extra £20 or so for the new one, which is superb.

Avoid avoid avoid.

Deal is hot but the keyboard is not. They are magnets for dust etc and are a mission to clean.

If you like a skanky keyboard, go ahead, if not buy the new one with 'rennie' keys.

As someone who has both, I would argue the other way. Neither is a particularly winning design, but at least this has some resemblance to a normal keyboard. The new aluminium version is too flat with barely raised keys, has virtually no key travel and is an absolute pain to use.

Odd to see Tesco with Mac peripherals of any sort as it doesn't normally sell any unless they are iPod related.
