Mac Mode and PC Mode

The difference is that the copy cut paste etc keys will send the right keys to the OS.

Send Number Keycodes

Warning: the keys send normal number keycodes, not the keycodes of numeric keypad.

For example, pressing 3 is the same as pressing 3 on the left hand side top row of a normal keyboard. It is not the same as the 3 key on the number keypad.

This shoudn't matter to you. But if you are a computer programer nerd on linux and want to reprogram the keys via operating system keyboard tools, it is more difficult to differentiate the number key.

Not Suitable as a Calculator Keypad

This is not suitable as a calculator keypad, because the + - * / keys are not in standard position, and you have to hold Fn.
