Ask Max: Can I use the old style white keyboard on the new iMac?
I just got a new iMac (traded in my old G5) and I am wondering if I can use the old style white keyboard on the new iMac? The keys on the new aluminum keyboard are too far apart and it is slowing me down.
You can absolutely use your old keyboard with your new Apple iMac. Some people even use the extra-compact G3 iMac keyboards with newer Apple computers, just for the convenience of the smaller size while retaining a 10-key. I understand the value of a good keyboard, though I have the opposite preference. I have replaced all my keyboards with the Aluminum Apple Keyboards because I type more accurately with the added key spacing. It is all about what works for the individual, so keep using the white Apple keyboard.
Hope that helps,
