    Waiting for the next step...

    I have been using this keyboard now for 6 months and from the day I got it I loved it BUT I'd upgrade in a New York minute if I could just find a comparable illuminated keyboard.

    Great!!

    I found this particular keyboard to be great. The slimness of the keys allows for easy movement across the board and the addition of the numberpad allows for easy mathematical calculations. My only complaint is that there isn't a wireless keyboard with a numberpad.

    Great keyboard.

    I've been using this keyboard for just under 2 yrs. My typing skills are lousy. But the feel and design of this keyboard is nice. It has a small footprint, and the spacing between the keys makes typing on it easier. If Apple made this keyboard in a Bluetooth wireless version, I would own it tomorrow.

    Wonderful Keyboard but...

    This is a wonderful keyboard and I just love it but I would like Apple to make a wireless one with the numeric keypad

    works

    Works nicely with auto hotkey and windows vista and windows 7. Using it to replace my gaming keyboard because it takes up less space and just looks freaking slick. Only complaint is there is no driver from apple to make it work with a windows pc native. But auto hotkey fixes this for the most part by mapping the keys to w/e functions you want.

    Nothing too exciting, but no doubt Solid

    USB ports and a keypad were a must have, and in Apple's lineup, this is the only option and its up to the task. If they were to make a bluetooth wireless version w/KP they would have to ditch the USB ports. Easy to type quickly. I don't like how I can't use F13/F14 to adjust the iMac screen brightness (by default) anymore. Nothing really innovative, its a keyboard that works quite well, yes you may like some 3rd party ones better, but this ones good enough to keep me happy.

    My only real gripe (which I didn't deduct for) is that my "N" key was smudged during Apples printing and a streak runs along the whole key and somehow this slipped by Apple's QC dept. Hopefully they will send out a new one, its a bit of an eyesore with such an otherwise great looking keyboard.

    Great keyboard

    This is an excellent keyboard. My only 2 regrets are:

    - No wireless keyboard with numeric keypad available

    - No keyboard with extended characters printed on the keys available

    Not just another pretty face...

    This keyboard does more than make people go "Ooooooh!" I was able to "test drive" this keyboard for a week about a year ago an fell in love with it after about an hour of use. I'm no speed typist, but adjusting to the lower profile made typing easier. As a PC user it's refreshing to have something that so slim compared to most standard factory issued keyboards. After my brief trial I switched back to my conventional keyboard and was quickly disappointed by how clunky it felt. Most importantly, however, I noticed that I was experiencing increased amounts of discomfort in my wrist, which eventually became quite severe, especially after a particularly busy summer. I made the decision to switch to Mac keyboard and over the course of a week my pain lessened considerably and now, two months later, I am pain free and as comfortable as ever.
    There is a downside to using this on a PC, however, as some of my more frequently used keyboard shortcuts don't translate, but this is more an issue of me learning to use it properly than Apple not providing these features. It's a slight learning curve, but shouldn't be enough to deter anyone looking to make the switch. Help can easily be found on-line for users facing the same issue.

    Great Keyboard but want Wireless

    Great Keyboard, i bought one for all my computers, PC and Mac's in the studio, love them so much but wish i could have a wireless option with numeric keypad, the wireless options are useless to me with out the keypad so i sent it back and bought another wired keyboard with numeric keypad. In the Audio recording i need the options of markers and edits and having the keypad makes that much simpler.

    I like it.

    Overall this is a slick keyboard. Though the keys require a firm stroke, no more force is required than with any other keyboard, and the typing feels nice. Wireless and back lit keys would be a sweet option for this keyboard.

    Apple Keyboard

    Pros:
    I love the slim profile of the keyboard and the aluminum structure.
    It takes up way less desk space.

    Cons:
    You really have to strike the keys firmly to make sure they register.
    I would like to the keys back lit for night typing.
    The full size keyboard needs to be wireless.

    Fantastic

    This is one of the best keyboard that Apple have made. There is only one thing wrong with it - it's wired, and there isn't anyway to get around that. You have two choices: a compact keyboard with no numeric keypad (wired or wireless) OR if you need a keypad you are wired.
    Please, please, please release me from my desk and WITH my numeric keypad!

    Great Keyboard but Wireless option is a MUST

    I love the feel of the keys, but am disappointed that the large keyboard isn't available in a wireless version.

    Beautiful Design

    of course a keyboard is just a keyboard, the big difference is that this one looks pretty, and its not as bulky as other keyboards. The only thing that Mac could do to make this better is to offer a wireless version of their keyboard with the numeric keypad. I would have got the wireless one, but i need the numeric keypad, i use it alot. Other than that, this keyboard works perfectly and looks good.

    Great apart from one thing!

    Easily the best keyboard I've ever used, but disappointed that after only a short period of ownership the nice clean white keys are starting to turn yellow.

    It's an awesome keyboard, but don't expect it to stay nice looking for long.

    Best I've used

    I bought the imac a while back with the keyboard and i have to say it is super thin and really really quiet unlike those fat keyboards that make those loud clicks when you type with them. Im really impressed. the only problem is that if you have really dirty fingers and then start typing on it the keys will get really dirty and its almost impossible to clean. other than that i love it!

    Full Keyboard should have just come with the iMac

    I bought my iMac two weeks ago and really gave the mini keyboard a try but, as a PC convert, there are some things that I just need, like my home and end keys, a backspace and a full size keypad. It should have just come with the system I bought but there was no swaying the sales person to swap it out for me. Oh well I ended up having to spend another $60 to get the full keyboard. I also ended up using the KeyFixer utility to remap the Home and End keys so that they operated like I expected them to. Overall I am very happy with my system and full keyboard.

    GREAT...but...

    Ok...Ok.. This is a truly beautiful thing, well done. I have used my MacBook Pro 17" as my main computer (95% of the time) for the past 3 years. Recently (last week) I updated my Pro to the new unibody 15" pro and added a 24" led screen (waw again)... So with the new 24" led well I needed a keyboard and hence this one. It works great with well placed keys and handy controls for a variety of functions. Full numeric keys and arrows. My only real surprise is that there is no backlight... hmmmm.... I just cannot understand why Apple did not put backlit keys... I use my system for a variety of things and often operate in a no light room.
