    Beautiful keyboard, not for everyone...

    I bought this the morning it came on the site - my older apple keyboard whilst responsive was too clunky and heavy. and sitting 8 hours a day at it, I started to get tired wrists from the height.

    Let's set aside the looks - they're fantastic. And the anodysed look closely matches my monitors and mac pro case - good job apple!
    The response takes a very slight getting used to, but once you have it's far easier to type from and completely comfortable during long sessions.

    This keyboard might still not be a replacement for everyone though:
    the additional shortkeys at the top may be great for the casual user, but if like me you're a pro apps user, beware that such keys as the volume controls have been stuck onto the F keys. F keys that you may use constantly in Final Cut Pro.
    You can turn the volume controls off when you use such apps, but personally I find it a little tricky to juggle between the two.

    Just a word of warning if you are a heavy apps user, otherwise a very solid product that combines great looks with impressive functionality.
