    Best in Class!

    I just love this keyboard. I never understood the ergonomic benefit of "standard" keyboards where key travel is so big - it is just more strain to your fingers. This keyboard is very close to "laptop" feel and it is just awesome. Light touch and short key travel is a boon to my tendonitis-ridden arms. Don't let the spacing between keys confuse you - the distances between buttons are standard. I felt comfortable typing on this one on third email!

    My only hope this great product will set a new industry standard for keyboards! Really!

    AWESOME! Apple has done it again!!

    Once again, Apple comes out with a product that blows everyone else out of the water. At work, I use ancient, clickty-clacky, piece-of-crap PCs and keyboards, and then in the evenings I get to come home to my BEAUTIFUL MacBook Pro with this lovely external keyboard set up for heavy-duty computing (working from home). Makes typing effortless and fun. If you like the feel of the Mac laptop keyboards, you'll love this. Brings that laptop keyboard feel to your desktop set-up. THANK YOU APPLE!!!

    Love it, Awesome!

    I replaced my older white Apple Keyboard with this one, and it is much better. It has a better feel, and they keys are more spaced out, making it easier to type. I love the buttons for iTunes, Expose, and Dashboard. The keys feel light to the touch and are easy to use. I would recommend this keyboard to anyone in the market for one.

    Form and function -- AN AMAZING KEYBOARD!

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD! It's design is, well... Apple... genius of the refined aesthetic. It is the embodiment of the whole notion that less is more.... like a Danish Modern piece of furniture. It's really so nice to look at. From a functional perspective, it's pretty darn perfect as well. For me, anyway. Why didn't anyone think thin like this before? It's ergonimally so much better suited to work with human hands... no need for any additional props to lift your wrist up to achieve a comfortable position.. You just lay your hands on the desk where they naturally fall, and and this keyboard gently supports them... simply amazing...... simply, perfect.

    Love it!

    I am in love with this keyboard! The main reason is the distance between keys. I love the fact that is more difficult to hit keys by mistake... It is a PLUS having this space between them.
    The only thing I don't like: Where is the APPLE LOGo on the Command key?
    You got to put it back there... Or give me a sticker or something...

    FASTER TYPING

    BEFORE I GOT THE KEYBOARD, MY TYPING WAS FAIRLY SLOW, BUT AFTER A WEEK OR TWO OF USING IT, MY TYPING HAS IMPROVED A LOT!!!! THIS WOULD BE A GREAT KEYBOARD FOR A KID TO LEARN TYPING ON!!! IT WAS A LITTLE ANNOYING HAVING TO INSTALL A KEYBOARD UPDATE FOR THE TOP BUTTONS, BUT I REALLY LIKE HAVING PLAY/PAUSE KEYS FOR MY MUSIC SO I DONT HAVE TO GO INTO ITUNES TO SWITCH A SONG.

    I Can't Complain

    I LOVE this keyboard, even though I have Windows Vista. I go through keyboards fairly quickly, so the price is a DEFINITE plus! This is not by any means an advanced keyboard, but everything seems to work wonderfully!
    A+

    **The following cannot be used against this keyboard, considering the fact that I'm on Vista.**

    On Vista, the action keys (play, pause, etc) do not work.

    Great - Prefer to the wireless version.

    I tried the wireless version and could not get used to the thing. Kept putting fingers in wrong locations and it felt cramped. Some keys moved around as well, had to keep stopping to think about how to adapt to the thing.

    I took it back and got the wired keyboard for my Mac Pro and everything is in it's place, the keyboard absolutely flies, and the flatness is great, just love it. Best keyboard I've ever used, no question.

    Poor for male speedy typists

    If you've got typical male fingers -- wider than a lady's or child's -- and you are used to typing very fast (> 50wpm), you'll find this keyboard terribly unresponsive. You really have to pound on it to get the keys to register -- there is no tactile feedback.

    Also, the angle shown in the photo is very misleading. The keyboard lies almost completely flat. The rear has less than 1/2 inch rise. If you are used to even a slightly elevated keyboard, you'll have trouble getting used to this one.

    In short, the keyboard is too dainty, keys are closer together than the previous iMac keyboards, typing angle is uncomfortably flat, and the tactile response yields considerable uncertainty as to what you have typed.

    Fortunately, I still have my old iMacs, so I simply use an older, less elegant, but much more functional and superior keyboard with my new iMac.

    Best keyboard ever!

    This keyboard is absolutely sensational. The spacing between keys was a bit weird at first, but now, i don't make any typing mistakes at all.

    So so

    While the keyboard is attractive, the key spacing is a bit odd, the extreme low-profile means that my wrist-rests don't work very well, and the general layout is only OK.

    I had a more positive opinion of the keyboard until this morning when my "P" key came off the keyboard under normal use conditions. In my 20+ years of keyboard use I have only ever had one other key fall off a keyboard - my last Apple G4 Laptop. Luckily, unlike the G4, the key snapped back in after some jiggling.

    This keyboard is better than the last design, but an after market solution might suit you better.

    Not bad at all

    I was in a crunch to get a new keyboard. I gave mine to my daughter after hers got broken. I went to the Apple store near me and bought this keyboard. I have to say, I love it. THe keys are easy to press and typing is quick. The low profile is a pleasure to use.
    The F key functions are great and versatile. All in all, I'm very impressed.

    Loved it for new iMac but

    I love it for the new iMac, so I bought one for G5/MacPro combo switched by KVM. I ignored the other posts about it not working. Should have heeded. DOES NOT WORK WITH KVM. How can that be?
    I don't get it. Why? I don't know how to rate the stars because on one machine it's great, on two it is a paperweight.

    Amazing

    I got the new keyboard today with my new iMac & all I can say is it is the most amazing keyboard I have ever used! It is so easy to type on, very thin & so quiet! The USB on either side is so cool. I don't have to bother with reaching around the iMac to plug in my ipod I can do it right on the keyboard. I have read some people think they layout is weird.. but I think it is perfect. :]

    Almost the best keyboard...

    Of course the design and look is good, it's an Ive's Apple product. Good to see the environmental message is starting to get through to Steve and co too. But more importantly the usability is excellent once you get used to the change of the function keys.

    There are a few issues to fix...

    I missed desktop expose shortcut but you can change it in System Preferences. The brightness adjustment keys don't work (F1 and 2) - any ideas? The eject button needs to go back to F19. And there is a function key if you look properly (below F13).

    Overall a vast improvement on all keyboard designs - typing is faster and key response times are great. Fix the USB port labellings on the marketing materials and you might get 5*...
