I thought usually that mac keyboards have the alt and windows keys swapped, but you can use programs like Sharp Keys to remap them to be the proper way for Windows.

Very few keyboards are that OS specific.  Although some are designed with a certain operating system in mind.  Also, I am using it on Windows an if you read further down the page, it does list Windows compatibility.

Thanks Carlos. 
I looked at both of them.  The second one is described as being for mac computers.  Do you use it on a windows pc as well?

The following are both keyboards which I personally own.  The first one
is a full-sized keyboard which has a built-in touchpad and uses an RF USB dongle.  The second one
uses bluetooth, can pair with up to 5 separate devices, and can also be used in USB wired mode.  Both have the F keys assigned to the standard functions by default.

I must work with a laptop that does not have a dedicated numeric pad.  It is running windows 7 professional.  Rather than lose productivity while learning my screen reader’s laptop layout, I thought I’d invest in a full-sized wireless keyboard.  I can use either blue tooth or usb dongle type keyboards.  I want one that can be easily configured such that the function keys perform like the old style pf keys without pressing the fn key.
 
Does anyone have a recommendation for me?
 
Thank you,
George
