    No real feel to it and too small

    Without a doubt, this is the worst keyboard I've ever struggled with. It's so thin as to feel like a toy. They keys are too short and don't provide worthwhile feedback. It's hard to touch-type on it without hitting other keys accidentally. And why is dashboard now on F2?

    OMG You can actually type with this thing

    But that's about it, first of all. For a company that presents itself as being so much more user friendly that windows I'm a little surpriced at having to do a 16MB download and a reboot to get this thing to work, (IT'S A KEYBOARD!!!) which it doesn't btw, I can type, but that's about it. I can't control the volume, the keys are wrongly mapped, for example the dashboard shortcut isn't f4 at all like the symbol on the actual key says, it's f12, and so many more incredibly annoying bugs.

    And needless to say this was the most expensive keyboard I have ever purchased, and the first that I had to download drivers to, welcome to 2007!

    And for some reason, my dock doesn't animate anymore...

    Hardware nice, software broken

    Looks and feels good but the software is broken. Neither the expose or dashboard keys work and it has taken an inordinately long time for Apple to acknowledge or address this.

    Wait until the fix comes before buying

    Don't Waste Your Money!!!!

    I have been a happy Apple customer since my first Apple II+. Their products have always been of the finest quality and easy to use. I sure hope this new keyboard isn't an example of their new products. The space bar is very touchy and I have been typing run together words constantly. It seems that you have to press some of the keys very precisely or they don't work. I am now using my 'old' keyboard and my speed has increased about 3x over the new thin keyboard.

    Nice try guys, but this product stinks! P.U.

    Sorry Apple, please try again.

    Sorry but I think this keyboard is woefully bad. I'm returning it to the Apple Store today. I have 6 Macs in the house and love Apple products, but sometimes Apple designs things that are sexy and flashy but don't work well. Witness the "hockey puck" mouse. Ditto on the keyboard this one replaces. For those of us that like a responsive keyboard with a solid touch, this keyboard doesn't cut it at all. Typing on this keyboard is like typing on a laptop keyboard. Some people like that mushy feel; I don't. I'm reverting to my Matias keyboard with its more substantial, more solid, and springier feel. Sorry folks. I give this keyboard one star at best, and that's only because it looks so different.

    KVM doesn't work!

    I am currently using the clear plastic Apple keyboard with a G7 wireless mouse. They are connected to a Iogear USB switch that connect a Apple G4 and a Sony desktop. The clear plastic Apple keyboard works GREAT in this Mac-PC network. Until I brought the brand new aluminum USB keyboard today, the keyboard simply does nothing with the KVM switch. Apple can do better than this. Don't they know how many Mac-PC users in the world? Please tell who ever doing the keyboard design to fix this problem ASAP! Also, please tell who ever doing marketing in the Apple headquarter, IT IS NOT ABOUT MAKING PC USERS SWITCHING TO MAC or MAKING PC WINDOWS WORKING IN MAC OS ENVIRONMENT, it is CO-EXIST - STUPID! Without PC comparison, people won't think Apple design is so cool. A lot of people, like me, in the world using both Mac and PC with KVM switch. Can't Apple fix a simple problem like this?

    ps. The 1-Star is for the good design of the box. For a keyboard doesn't work, there is no stars for it.

    Disappointing

    I bought this to replace the existing Apple "Crumb Catcher" keyboard I use with a KVM between my Mac Mini and Dell tower. Well, the Mac Mini won't recognize it through the KVM - yet the Dell does. So, it works fine on Windows but doesn't with my Mini. Infuriating. Such has been my 3 year journey with the Mac. This is the end of the road. I'm done with Apple.

    Great Style at the Expense of Function

    I love the new style. Today I went to the Apple Store to check it out. But I didn't buy one. I find the changes to the F keys, as well as their smaller size, undesirable. I use a lot of professional apps were the F keys are used often. There is the system preference to make the F keys use the software function, but the keyboard doesn't have a Fn key to make the F keys use the hardware function. (Perhaps Shift? or Option?) I am also a laptop user and ideally I would like to use a full size wireless keyboard. Neither of the new keyboards fulfills my needs.
