Bluetooth (keyboard) poser

  keverne 21:23 05 Sep 2009

At present my computer desk is home to two keyboards used by a Vista PC and also a MAC.

This uses up a lot of room some of which could be saved, I was hoping, by using only one bluetooth keyboard.

Would that work - one keyboard talking to different machines sometimes simultaneously?

For a start, I have in the past found Bluetooth to be rather unreliable, so now I never use bluetooth.

I doubt very much whether one keyboard could talk to two totally different computers, and even with two identical computers would not work particularly well.

But that is only my guess!

I agree with Techno. Trying to accommodate two different PCs with one keyboard is a recipe for disaster possibly.

... and I agree with both of you. It's not going to be worth the bother. Thanks.
