    Amazing Keyboard.

    I love this keyboard. It is very responsive, and very easy to type on. I enjoy writing on this keyboard. I think my typing speed has increase. It is beautifully designed. It doesn't take up a lot of space, either.

    nice keyboard, good upgrade

    Nice step up for the keyboard. The key strokes are really smooth because of the low profile keys. It doesnt' get dirt trapped around the keys like the older keyboard did. The preset F keys are nice. There are pics on each key that correspond to their function. Those F keys with no preset have no pic so adding a function to those is a sinch and getting the functions confused is totally gone. Instant access to lots of features w/o having to open the program or utility. great apple keyboard feature.

    The only real issue I've had is the USB ports on the keyboard. I use a mac mini and the aluminum keyboard connected to the mini won't allow 2.0 devices. 2.0 use is only available when used with the aluminum iMac. my old keyboard when connected to the mac mini, allowed 2.0 device hookups (ie flash drives). I might pull my old keyboard out and compare the two. If you can give up the 2.0 feature its a good buy.

    B-E-A-utiful

    I have been looking at this keyboard ever since it came out just wanting to go and pick it up, but I already had a keyboard so why get another one, what will I do with the old one? Well my chance came and I'm glad I switched. I have always loved the feel of a Laptop keyboard and this is as close to one that I will get for my iMac. I like the look, minimalistic and it's profile is great, the layout takes some getting used to but with a few mods of the F keys it's just like the old keyboard.

    Truly Disappointed

    Oh my gosh… HELP!! I have been typing for well over 30 years and this new keyboard has put me into a state of complete stress. I agree that visually this is a great looking keyboard but honestly my self-esteem is in jeopardy from all the errors I’m experiencing!! I had to go back at least 9 times in the first sentence alone because of mistakes I made from the keyboard. There seems to be no consistency to the way the keys react to the touch. F1 – F4 used to be my favorite keys for the type of work I do… (lots of cutting, copying and pasting) now I have to hit command c then command v to copy and paste. Not a clean flow. I know about the fn key but that still requires a stop and search move. Physically, I’m experiencing serious cramping and pain related issues in my fingers and hands. I LOVE my new iMAC but pray there’s another keyboard I can switch to. Any thoughts?

    Finally.

    Finally a keyboard that's not too thick, that offers nice key response (physical and in the OS), that is simple and that works great. I use it with my Macbook and the Apple mouse plugged into it. No problem at all.

    Highly recommended.

    New Keybaord

    I love the new Apple keyboard! It is so easy to use and your fingers really glide on top of it. Some of the new F key functions on it are nice too. Nice going!

    Good Keyboard!

    Overall this keyboard is really great. The keys are spaced out making it easy to avoid mistakes. The keyboard buttons are much like the macbook keyboard though of course the Apple Keyboard is larger and thinner. The think i also like about it is the thickness. The small angle feels more comfortable then completely flat or at a very high angle. I also like the button size. I could never type quickly with big chunky buttons though this keyboard the buttons are extemly flat and i make few mistakes with it.

    Keyboard fail

    The keyboard has lasted me less than a year. The space tab failed soon after I bought it and have been struggling with it since.

    Great KB, only wish there was a wireless version

    I've had this KB for three years. Wife and I love everything about it. A year ago our iMac stopped going to sleep so after numerous diagnostic calls to AppleCare, the tech's last ditch effort was to try another KB. Luckily we had our little wireless KB which we never used as we need the full numeric KB. Long story short, the KB was the cause. I guess one of the keys somehow became defective and it was only evident from the iMac's sleep behaviour. Apple replaced it and it's been great again since.

    This is the first time we've ever experienced a KB failure which makes me a little leery about its long term reliability but outside of this issue it's been fantastic so we're happy with it. Our only wish is for Apple to make a wireless version of this.

    So Quiet and Elegant

    When I spilled coffee on my original Apple wireless keyword I suffered for a few days with a generic keyboard someone had passed on to me. It was so noisy and clunky. It is with pleasure I write this review on my new quiet and elegant Apple keyboard.

    One suggestion- I hope Apple brings back a wireless with a numeric keypad.

    peeed off!

    I just bought a new imac i and was disappointed to get a pants wireless keyboard, talk about budget cuts, i was a victim of buying a new full size alu keyboard! why did they do that! As a designer, you need to use shortcuts and the wireless keyboard makes this difficult!

    Apple wired Keyboard

    Love, love, LOVE the new keyboard! I had a spill on my old one (first time for me) & I'm actually glad it happened - I didn't realize the new keyboard was so light and has almost silent key operation. I use the usb side ports for mice & cameras.

    Slick keyboard

    Got a new iMac at work a couple of weeks ago (moving from a PC) & when I first saw this keyboard, I thought there was no way I'd be able to type on it. Took to it immediately! Now, when I have to use a PC, the old school keyboad feels really clunky. Have not had any problems with the Apple keyboard (as one use described in regards to delays when pressing keys, etc.--might be because he's using it on old Macs?). Anyway, I'll be replacing my PC keyboard at home with one of these. Good job, Apple!

    Fat and clumsy finger fixer.

    As a programmer, I have been typing for a long time. I have larger fingers than an average person, and as a result when using a typical keyboard which has taller keys and which must be pressed further down, I would always end up hitting other nearby keys. This would reduce both the speed and accuracy of my typing.

    When I first saw this keyboard in the store I wasn't interested, but when I used my friend's for a project, I was absolutely amazed at the dramatic increase is typing proficiency. I immediately purchased one that day. Since then I hardly ever hit other keys when typing. The good key spacing, and shorter keys have solved my problem.

    I have never been so glad with an accessory upgrade like this. 5 Stars.

    My Fifth Keyboard in Two Years

    This is the first time I've used this particular model. On the plus side, the key response is far better than previous models, and for touch typists like myself, it makes for quicker typing. On the downside is that there's no riser support at the back of the keyboard, having to use my monitors stand for this. Also, the Enter key is too small, and feel that to give the keyboard more 'feel', the keys would be better being less flat and more like previous models (bevelled).

    Hopefully, this one lasts longer!

    Different, but good.

    At first, I wasn't sure if I liked the feel, which is completely different than any other keyboard I've had. But now that I'm using it daily, I actually like it better than any keyboard I've ever had.

    Breaking convention works in this case. I believe you'll see more of these in the future.

    The best Keyboard At Any Price!

    This ultra thin keyboard is absolutely the best I've ever come across... As a Windows user, integration with XP and Vista is flawless.. I highly recommend this board to anyone seeking great feel, looks and performance.
