Bluetooth number pad
Posted by: Z

Anyone have a particular recommendation? Was doing a bit of work in Numbers last weekend and it was not great with the new TouchID small keyboard.

A bit of research has me leaning toward either the MSFT Number Pad - [www.amazon.com] - or the Satechi one with embiggened arrow keys - [satechi.net]

Anyone here have either or tried both?

Something to point out, as it may not be obvious, is that Mac's have traditionally had a slightly different +/- layout compared to Windows. Windows has a "double tall" + sign, vs Mac has a regular sized + and - in that same space. This means other keys, such a =, /, * may have different positioning as well.

Just keep that in mind for your needs, for instance, the MSFT keypad doesn't have an = key.

I'm used to the Mac layout, which cuts down on my choices for keyboards and number pads. Newertech makes a "Mac" style layout number pad: [eshop.macsales.com]

In short order, decided to go for the msft pad as I'm used to that layout from my work PC.

I had 2 different third party number pads, both bluetooth. Pretty buggy so I ditched them and got the Apple extended bluetooth keyboard. Well worth the investment.
