Since this won't be used very often I really don't want to waste a ton of money on it - so no real Apple keyboards / mice. I'd also prefer something small but with real keys. It looks like I can get a fake Apple keyboard (same size as the modern mini aluminium keyboard and uses real bluetooth, but plastic and not as nicely made) for around a tenner, but the mouse is looking less promising.
Can anyone point me at reasonable alternatives, possibly keyboards with a trackpad rather than separate mouse? There are several on ebay but all I've spotted so far are either tiny or 2.4ghz. It needs to be compatible with Bluetooth 2 and Mac. Suggestions gratefully received.
Annoyingly I used to have the big old white first generation Apple bluetooth keyboard and mouse, but I sold them years ago since I never used them. Serves me right...
later - found an early Apple Bluetooth mouse for £7.50, I'm watching a couple of the early Apple keyboards but if that doesn't come off I'll get one of the copies.
later - got a keyboard - together the keyboard and mouse cost more than the Mac Mini G4, but considering that was a tenner or so plus postage that isn't surprising. If at later date I get something better than a G4 they'll still be useful.
update 3/2/15 - keyboard and mouse have both arrived, work well, and should be good for any computer linked to that TV. Still waiting on the Mac Mini - it's marked as "sent" as of Saturday but hasn't arrived yet.
