Can anyone help with IMAC connection problems.

USB mouse and keyboard : will any USB mouse work with IMAC. I have these for a PC but need to know if they will work on IMAC.

Also anyone know what ADB connectors are used for in the IMAC.


Thanks

Just about any USB mouse/keyboard will work on a Mac, but remember that the right mouse button does not give the context menus you get in Windows.

The ABD connector is a female minidin4 socket for a suitable keyboard, mouse, trackball, drawing tablet, or joystick. You shouldn't hot swap devices on this type of connection, like you can with USB, and if need be you can get a USB/ABD adapter to use USB devices through the ABD port.

Hope this helps

Regards

At the risk of stating the obvious, you should also be aware that Windows specific keyboard functions will obviously not work on the Mac, but the main key functions remain the same.
