Apple Extended Keyboard II's are good (solid clicky and liked by most

If you like small keyboards the IIgs style one is compact

ADB mice plug into the side of the Mac keyboards.

Apple Keyboard II's are mushy pieces of junk (have one), the original Apple
extended keyboard is ok also.

I also have some Appledesign Keyboards that are ok.
