USB keyboard ?

Hi..just reading another thread about the above, I also need a new keyboard, and when they open at 11, i will be there, but what i would like to know, if i get a USB one as against a PS2, am i right in thinking that it can not be used till everything is loaded, only i have a USB mouse on the laptop, and that does not work till the OS is loaded..or have i got it all wrong... thanks

My MS Natural Pro has dual connectors - the lead splits into the ordinary mauve one[is that PS2?] and USB - it always works whatever the state of loading.

My setup is like Leo49's and I usually have it connected via USB. USB is enabled in BIOS and it works before Windows loads.

It only works on the motherboard USB connections and not on another PCI connector I have installed.
