    We are taking our iPad to Orlando instead of the mini laptop this time around. I'll need to keep up with my business emails and of course here :) so I was thinking of getting a keyboard either wireless or plug in to work alongside my iPad.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I would say the official apple one, you could buy it when you get over there as its cheaper. I love typing on the apple keyboards

    Here's a set of reviews of various keyboards/keyboard cases from cNet. They even mention the Apple Keyboard that britchick recommended.

    Tom :)macwave:... it's a good idea.)

    but I think it's only for the iPad 1.

    just curious as to why it would be for just the iPad 1 :unsure: do they not just connect via bluetooth?

    Brit,

    You're right. If it's the standard Apple bluetooth keyboard, it will work with any iPad. 1, 2, or 3.


    Tom :)macwave:... who'd have blue teeth? :unsure:)

    Mine is the apple iPad dock keyboard, not a wireless option.

    It does fit but doesn't work very well for some reason.
