    JUNK!

    This apple keyboard crapped on me in less than 4 months. Worked when I went to bed, wouldn't work this morning. Poof, gone.

    What happened to putting out a quality product? Come on Apple, are you so focused on mobile devices that you're now blowing off us desktop users? Many of us have paid premium prices for many years for apple products which is what got you (apple) to where you are today, and you allow a piece of junk keyboard like this on the market?

    I'm typing this on a 10+ year old Dell keyboard I borrowed from my wife.

    PERFECT!!!!

    Can't go back to any other keyboard! Not sure why they write the requirements are OS 10.6.8.. I've been using this keyboard since 2008 (Tiger). Anyway - perfect!

    Great Product - Very Durable

    Have had this keyboard for 4 years. Still like new. A very durable and nice keyboard. I've used mine in not the cleanest of atmospheres and it has kept on ticking. A great product for the price. Makes me wonder how those who have gave it such low ratings have used it.

    Too expensive for a consumable!

    These keyboards are the nicest to use I have ever tried - smart, tactile and accurate.
    If they lasted I'd never use anything else.

    Unfortunately I am currently using a nasty PC keyboard once again as my second apple keyboard in approx. 3 years has just gone mad! Same symptom with both keyboards - one or more keys stop working, and then starts sending all sorts of spurious characters when typing. Impossible to put mac to sleep as the keyboard keeps waking it up!!
    Plug in this (the one i'm typing on) nasty cheap keyboard and all the problems are gone! :-(

    At this price point I expect the keyboard to last at least as long as the cheaper keyboards i have - i.e 6-10 years

    So beware! This is an expensive 'consumable' that really taints the general Apple experience

    I am having to think very hard about whether I buy another one or go for a cheaper decent replacement that might last longer.

    Great keyboard!

    This is a great keyboard. I have to have numeric for work and it is very easy to use like every apple product. No other keyboard can compare.

    Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad - brilliant

    This is the best keyboard I've ever typed on, and I've been typing on Mac keyboards all day long for the past 25 years - literally. It's even better than the previous model, the "pro" keyboard was bad; that thing was absolutely unusable (so I used a MacAlly iKey).

    This keyboard has the side effect of making the transition to typing on a MacBook Pro keyboard seamless; it used to be hard not to make mistakes all the time after typing on a keyboard with the normal amount of travel.

    I wish they made a wireless version with a 10-key pad.

    Great keyboard but flawed.

    The keyboard itself is brilliant- a great size and very nice to type on. However, the cable is too short and the USB ports on the back are NOT a real USB hub. You can only really use a low-power device like a mouse with it and usually only one at a time.

    5 Stars for Style...

    ...but minus 2 for not having a wireless keyboard WITH numeric keypad. It's kind of a given that this is what would satisfy the majority of users.

    Fantastic product with £ key!

    This keyboard it just fantastic. It is beautifully designed and MUCH better than my old white heavy 'clacky' keyboard. Typing is now a pleasure rather than a chore. Delivery was super fast.

    Contrary to other reviews I can confirm that my keyboard does have a '£' key. However, make sure you order the United Kingdom version and not the International English version. There's a drop down list on the right hand side of the page where you can make your choice.

    Awesome!!!! Just love it

    Sleek in design, really nice. Only if they made the keys in silver as-well.. white tends to get dirty fast.

    Ergonomic & Full Featured!

    I'm a professional photographer who's been a mac user for 15 years. This has been my favorite keyboard of all time.

    The low profile is a joy to type on. I love having the number keys and custom f keys which I use all the time. I also prefer a cable connected keyboard to a wireless any day. Who wants to change batteries every month? It's been nothing but a headache. I've been there.

    Unlike a prior review my iPhone 4 syncs beautifully over the USB 2.0 Ports on this keyboard with no 'low power' warnings or what have you. That may have to do with the power of the port the keyboard is actually plugged into. I'm using the new quad-core 27" iMac. I know that my 5 year old white 20" core due iMac has given me such low power warnings when plugging into that keyboard's USB port.

    I recommend this to anyone with a mac. I ordered mine as an election for my iMac but my wife wants me to order another one for her to use on our white iMac with the old style high profile keys.

    The Apple Keyboard w/Numeric Keypad

    I love the new apple keyboard. so thin my desk looks so uncluttered it's amazing. I don't mind the fact that it has a cord and find the numeric keypad very useful. I replaced my old iMac keyboard with it as soon as i got it and am now typing on it.

    Waterproof?

    I just spilled water in the keyboard at work and it's working like nothing happened! It was a lot of water. I'm quite impressed! :) YAY! Good stuff, I have this keyboard @ home and I'm happy as always. More now!

    Amazingly low profile and very smooth

    I love the 1/4 press keys and the ease of use, and I have had it for more than a year and still love it. I type at least 12 pages a day on this aluminum keyboard and i have never experienced any cramping and my tendinitis never flares up. I find myself wanting to take it to work because the win pc's that we have at work still use the full key bulky keyboards and I'm always getting cramps and my tendinitis is killing me.

    Until mac comes out with a keyboard that improves on this one i will never switch back.

    Great keyboard

    I've been using this keyboard for just under 2 years and I've never had any problems. It's a great design ... very easy to use and very comfortable.

    Was loving it until...

    Although it looks great, I was against this keyboard for a long time. I picked one up anyways and once I got used to it I fell in love with it. However, after only 4 months it started going haywire and causing glitches in programs before completely shutting down. I thought it was my iMac that was dying because I couldn't see how a keyboard could cause so many frightening problems (screen flashes, apps randomly opening and closing, full freezing...). Thankfully, I switched back to the old white plastic keyboard and everything worked fine. Needless to say, I am taking this back. Hopefully, I can find the receipt and swap it out. I am on the fence about replacing it otherwise. Maybe I just got a bunk one. In any case, I am disappointed.

    Great for Loads of Data Input

    I'm a therapist and I have to write so many progress notes, I swear I spend more time with my keyboard than I do with my actual clients! Literally, I spend nearly 3-4 hours a day typing. I bought this keyboard spur-of-the-moment after getting tired of my old keyboard's buttons sticking, and having to pound them to get each letter on the screen. This was the best instantaneous purchase I've ever made. The low-set keys require much less finger-lift and barely any pressure at all. I'm not really pushing the keys, but simply allowing my fingers to fall on the key pads. Had I know this would have made my typing so much easier and quicker, I would have bought it the day it came out. The 'complaints' about this keyboard in other reviews are technical and extraneous. If you're looking for something that makes typing a breeze, then this is definitely it.

    LOVE this keyboard! No debate, just get it!

    I recently started a new design job and had the old "push key" keyboard. Not only were some of the keys sticking but it looked dirty and was impossible to clean! I insisted I get this new one and it was worth asking for! It's sleek, SO very easy to type on — it's like gliding! — quiet and so slim it takes hardly any space. I actually like typing more now!

    Only con is that like the MacBook Pro's casing, the anodized aluminum smudges easily, BUT unlike any other keyboard, this one is actually EASY to clean. All you need is a shammy cloth. Then again it looks so darn nice, you won't want it dirty!

    I want it BLACK!!!

    Why don't you plan to make a BLACK Apple Keyboard?

    This is one of the most astounding keyboards on the planet, great feeling, amazing typing speed. But the white version becomes quickly dirty, a BLACK version would be a great improvement, a great look for sure!!!

    Make a black keyboard, please!!! :-)
