    Great Keyboard!! Five Stars.

    This is by far the best keyboard i've ever owned. Between the affordability, the crisp, clean keystroke, the amazing look of it and the extra buttons, it makes for a fantastic experience. The real highlights of this keyboard (for me anyways,) are the comfort, it truly is extremely comfortable, and quite easy to use. As well as the extra keys, there's one for dashboard, there's one for exposé, and some for brightness and volume. And finally, there's the extra features. For instance, to make this character (é)all you ahve to do is press option + e. So simple. it's really quite intuitive, apple thinks ahead and makes the keyboard shortcuts ones that the users would think of automatically.

    All of this leads to a great user experience, and whether you're on a mac or pc, BUY ONE TODAY.

    great keyboard

    I was skeptical after reading all the complaints and considering that I have big hands, wide shoulders and have difficulty getting ergonomically situated. I went to the store and wasn't impressed, though it wasn't at a desk angle. I took the leap anyway and after a very brief period of adjustment, couldn't be happier. The keys are low and easier to use, with much less strain on my hands. It looks great and seems well made. Beats the old dirt collecting tray model by miles. Go ahead, take the leap. You're only regret will be depression when you have to use a "regular' keyboard at work. Form and function come together here, big time.

    Why did I look elsewhere?

    I was looking for a new keyboard for my old Mac. I went to a dozen stores and display-tested a hundred or more keyboards before finally sucking it up and getting the Apple Keyboard. Man, am I glad I did! The keys are the perfect distance from eachother with a good feel, it's easy to see in low-light conditions, and it's heavier than you'd expect from such a thin keyboard so it doesn't slide around when you use it.

    I'm miffed that the F-keys I've used for Exposé and Dashboard moved, but I'll live. Also, I got a KVM switch so I could use my PowerBook at my desk, and of course this is probably the only keyboard on Earth that won't work with it. I blame my discount KVM switch and retain my 5-star rating of this sweet keyboard. Mouse shopping was harder...

    Great keyboard

    I just got this keyboard and really like it a lot. Everybody has their own keyboard preferences, and I happen to like flatter keyboards better - I also tend to like my powerbook's keyboard better than my old Apple desktop keyboards (this should give you an idea of what this keyboard is like it you haven't had a chance to test it). So, while it might no be for everyone (see other comments), function and form really work for me on this one.

    I like this keyboard.

    Its works great and came with my imac when I bought it at the store although I replaced with a wireless one I still use it for when I need the extra keys but for people who aren't obsessed with only have a power cord coming out of the computer than this is a good buy.

    Sweet

    At first I wasn't sure about the new keyboard because it felt entirely different than my old one.
    After a month of using it I can hardly type on my old one! This new keyboard has a super feel and the keys have wonderful sensitivity. My old keyboard required about 1/4 inch of travel to enter data. The new one has far less travel but is not too "touchy".

    I like the following-
    1- low profile
    2- key travel
    3- USB port locations are superior to the old ones being on the rear.
    4- ease of cleaning.

    You'll love it. Really, a big leap in keyboard technology IMHO.

    MacBook for your desktop

    I fell in love with this keyboard on my MacBook, and finally bought the wired desktop version for my G4 to replace an aging Apple Pro Keyboard. In short, I love it. Amazingly crisp keystrokes, the short travel (either you love it or your hate it), and the lack of practically ANY chin make this keyboard a true winner. And, you can have all your function keys work just the way you're used to having them work with a click of the mouse in System Preferences, and the more useful controls are just a Fn keystroke away. A real winner.

    Also, works great with my Belkin Flip KVM.

    Amazing...

    This keyboard is really good. It works like a charm. I use it with my MacBook, and the sleek design almost makes me forget I'm using anything. My only comment is that this keyboard does not work with PC's, at least the number pad. It deserves 5 stars... Yea for Apple!

    Worth the upgrade

    I spend a lot of time having to type in awkward positions - semi-touch typing, not hunt and peck. Due to that, I had noticed my old white keyboard was developing a 'catch' if the keys were not hit absolutely square.

    As soon as I put this on my Mini I noticed an improvement. Not only does it accept off-center strokes without errors, but the keys have just enough travel to prevent mistypes while still not requiring excessive movement to produce output.

    This is the best full-sized keyboard I have seen in a long time - HIGHLY recommended for anyone not tied to a desk!

    Very nice.

    A nicely built keyboard, sturdy and light. Great for those who like the feel of keyboards on laptops but dont want to deal with cramped conditions. I wish Apple had the option of a back lit keyboard, but I guess that is down the road.

    Best Keyboard i've ever used.

    I bought this keyboard when I was in NYC at the Fifth Avenue store (one of the 2 apple stores i visited). I'm using it on my Dell laptop, becuase i hate PC keyboards. It is the best keyboard I've ever used. It's thin, light, yet durable, and the key response is great. For $50, it was a great buy!

    NOT FOR A TOUCH TYPIST

    This is the worst keyboard i have ever used in my profession. I find some keys do not work properly which means it now takes me twice as long to type something up - i have to go back because i cannot trust that the keyboard has actually written the keys i have pushed. If i tap on a certain key a few times in a row, it is bound to miss out one keystroke. I tested it.
    It is not ergonomic - being a touch typist i can type 100 wpm... it does hurt my wrist after i just typed this amount of text.
    Yes it is aesthetically gorgeous but i wish it would perform better as well as being ergonomically friendly :(
    I have gone from 100wpm to 20wpm! and i will be finding a new keyboard and tossing this one out.

    Bought it for XP

    I needed a good keyboard for programming while at work because my PC keyboard just wasn't cutting it. As far as keyboards go, I'm looking for a short throw and good tactile feel. This keyboard is solid and feels really good beneath my fingers. My typing on this keyboard is much more accurate and my hands don't feel fatigued after a long session. I'm using the keyboard with a Windows XP box and have no problems. I considered buying an IBM M series (billed as the "ultimate" keyboard) but after checking one out recently, I decided that I prefer the Apple keyboard's action and quietness. If there were one change I could make ... I would switch the 'caps lock' and 'control' key positions, but I'm sure I'll manage.
