    I was searching for a new keyboard for Mac OS. I found out that there is only one with Mac layout (BlackWidow Ultimate, currently not in stock). I know that in the past they had more to choose from Razer for Mac.
    Don't you think that we should have more options when buying keyboards with Mac layout?
    If I remember correctly there was on option in store where you could select that you are buying stuff that is supported on a Mac. Now I don't see that option any more in the store. Or am I missing something?

    As a Mac user I can say it would be nice to have the option but I also have no problem using a keyboard intended for windows.

    I've been using an old logitech "cordless" (lol) keyboard my brother gave me for over a decade. It's an excellent device and have had 0 problems with it. I'm using it right now! :D

    Sure couple of the keys don't have the symbols in the right place but doesn't slow me down since I know what keys their "meant" to be.

    With all that said I definitely would be tempted by any chroma enabled device with mac layout!

    I know that I could use Win keyboard, but it would be nice to have more options for Mac. I know that building/developing software for multiple OS takes a lot of time/money. I think that Razer made a big step forward when they have offered Mac compatible products (I have been using their mouses for a long time now and I have Orbweaver as well) with software support. Maybe we will see even more products in future.

    If I use a windows layout, how do I change the screen brightness in bootcamp? Assuming I didn't want to do it via control panel

    Oooh I've wanted an Orbweaver for a while, though my Naga does what I wanted it for so can't justify it.

    I do think it's quite easy for Razer to overlook Mac spec'd products. It would be great to see more options in the future though!

    So I wouldn't say they work. I have a DS Ultimate and it drops keystrokes, misses key ups, and makes it almost impossible to use with my mac. I contacted support and they basically said I was shit out of luck. So I wouldn't say it still works.

    That's the thing. Without software support I don't see any reason to use Win keyboard on Mac. And to be honest Razer drivers and software was always buggy and sort of "unfinished".

    True enough.
