I need a wireless keyboard and mouse that I can switch between my MacBook Pro and PC.

I was looking at the Apple Wireless Keyboard, but I'm not sure if I can change from PC to Mac usage easily enough.

Does anyone have a similar setup?


As per Bluetooth functionality, one would have to pair/unpair with the chosen device to switch to another system. It's worth noting that Apple by no means supports PC's to work with their accessories, and a quick search will show you plenty of people having a less-than-stellar experience trying to make it work. A more appropriate long-term solution is a wired keyboard and a KVM to switch between systems.


The Bluetooth Apple Wireless Keyboard is able to be connected and used with a Win PC as long as the Win PC supports bluetooth.

  • what does it take to switch between the two? How easy is it?

    If both Mac and Win PC are turned on, you need to pair and unpaid the bluetooth keyboard (or turn on/off the bluetooth on the Mac or PC). Otherwise, as @David said, a wired keyboard with a KVM is better choice.
