Do Apple have a separate numeric keypad, wireless or USB
The new ultrathin wireless keyboard is fantastic to use, but it would be great if it had a numeric keypad at the end. I've bought a couple of so-called MAC osx compatible usb keypads but my iMac will not recognise them. It's frustrating to say the least

No, Apple does not carry a stand alone number pad. Some third-party retailers carry them, but Apple doesn't guarantee that they work with their computers, which is why none of them are on their website.

Yes - Apple sells a wireless keypad, which also acts as a calculator. I don't particularly like mine, and I'm seriously considering buying a wired keyboard with the numeric keypad extension. I dislike the separate numeric wireless keypad because it automatically goes into sleep mode after a few minutes of disuse - and I find it difficult to wake it back up to use... I find myself not wanting to bother with the keypad because of this. Also - I had a very hard time getting my iMac to recognize the numeric keypad - I took my system into the Apple store and the tech person struggled for quite some time before she got it to work.

Yes. It's called the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. It's got a USB wire and is available online or at the Apple Store.
