If you read my recent article Apple USA unfortunately segregates Mac Mini’s keyboard options here in ProVideo Coalition magazine, you may now feel relief. After exploring multiple sources, I have fortunately located a USA-based company that is willing and able to offer both versions of the official Apple aluminum keyboards with the Spanish ISO layout. When I say “both versions”, I mean both the wired (USB) version with numeric keyboard, and the wireless (Bluetooth) version without the numeric keyboard. Now Apple users in the USA who choose the Mac Mini and would like an official Apple Spanish keyboard (with which Apple USA does not currently offer any Spanish keyboard option) can order their desired keyboard from this company. Of course, this also applies if you want a replacement keyboard for your iMac or MacPro, or if you want an external keyboard for a MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro, regardless of whether the computer currently has a Spanish ISO or any other type of keymap, and regardless of whether you run your system in English (or in any other language).
Above is the Apple wired Aluminum Spanish ISO keymap with numeric keyboard. Click here to see a larger version.
Ohana Multiple Solutions is located in Hialeah, Florida, USA and is offering the models as follows:
- Apple Spanish aluminum wired (USB) with inboard numeric keyboard: US$48 plus shipping.
- Apple Spanish aluminum wireless (Bluetooth) US$68 plus shipping.
The company clarifies that these prices are for cash/check. If paying with credit card, the price will be 5% more, and these prices do not include Florida sales tax, which will be charged if the items are delivered or picked up in Florida. If you supply your Fedex account number, then Ohana Multiple Solutions will use that instead of charging you the freight.
