    I am looking for a traditional chinese keyboard that I can use with my Mac. Does anyone know where I can get one of those in the US? Or even an online site that can ship one to me?

    I'm assuming you mean chinese characters printed on the keys?

    Not sure if this would be a better option: Chinese keyboard stickers

    Cheaper to buy stickers than to get a new piece of hardware that does exactly the same thing. All you need is the Traditional Chinese IME for your computer.

    Yes, however I want a full keyboard. Not one where the stickers can be removed or will be removed over time with the amount I type.

    My Mac has an excellent way to switch keyboards over to the Traditional Chinese, but I am dead set on getting an actual keyboard.

    If you can read and write in chinese I suggest finding a chinese site that will ship overseas.

    What about E Bay, not sure if any of them are what you want but there are almost 200 on there now?

    That is a major part of the issue. I can't find any places that have Chinese keyboards that are willing to ship them overseas. Most of the keyboards the Chinese websites that do ship overseas like dealextreme are selling are standard Qwerty keyboards.
