    Good but not Great

    The light weight, angle for the hands, and overall strength and flexibility of the full keyboard are really great. It could be so much better if it came in a Bluetooth, wireless model. Some applications, such as Logic Studio, work best with a full keyboard - meaning that there is a numeric keypad on the far right of the keyboard. While one can go in to the application and reprogram / redefine the keys to fit on the wireless keyboard in some fashion or another. That is a lot of pain-in-the-neck work just to get a wireless keyboard.

    Great Keyboard For Some

    I bought this along with a Samsung monitor to create a desktop for my MacBook Pro. Many people complain it doesn't type well, etc, but when you actually type correctly it works great. The key depth is perfect to type quickly and the 2 USB connectors are convenient and useful. Overall, a great keyboard when you type like a normal person would, NOT ON YOUR LAP!!

    Delight to use

    I write this review after having used the keyboard for almost two years now, and it has been great the whole time. I have never experienced any wrist or arm problems. I like the action and the look, and how it sits quite tidily on the desk. Great keyboard!

    IBM PCjr "Chiclet" Keyboard all over again!!!

    Although this keyboard looks really good, it does not function well for me. Maybe it is the way I type or the way I like feedback from a keyboard, this one just doesn't feel normal. I replaced it with the A1048 (much better for me).

    Finally, for all the older users out there. Doesn't this keyboard remind you of the IBM PCjr "Chiclet" Keyboard (PCWorld's worst PC Keyboard of all time. All time!!! Why sell a keyboard close to that one)? I used to have one of those "Chiclets" and I hated it then just like I hate it now!!!

    Much prefered over other Apple Keyboards

    I love it. I prefer it over the smaller, newer keyboard, regardless of the BlueTooth capability. It makes a very big difference over the speed of your typing. I love it. Greta buy. Great investment for a typist or writer.

    Delicate, fragile

    Get just a few drops of moisture under a key and that's it. A dead keyboard. My last one endured for one month, eight days. Then a few drops of coffee from a bumped cup got on the keyboard and multiple keys instantly stopped working. Only a fool would pay this much money for something so delicate. Too bad, I like apple products and I like the look. But unless you live in a climate controlled environment where looks trump productivity, this is not a good buy.

    Poorly designed USB ports

    The Apple keyboard is a superb product except for the USB ports: they're underneath the keyboard so you cannot connect a larger pen disc. The USB slot should be located much closer to the edge of the keyboard, or on the back, as in previous keyboards.

    Best Keyboard Ever

    I asked the Apple store to substitute this one for the smaller wireless on the 27" iMac and they wouldn't do it at first. After asking to speak to a manager they actually included this keyboard and the wireless one for free!

    I have used a lot of different keyboards in my life and for some reason I can type faster and more accurate on this one. I have also found that it doesn't slide all over your desk as you type which has always been annoying with others I have used in the past.

    Might be the best keyboard I've ever had

    This just might be the best keyboard I've ever owned. Sleek and quiet. I keep forgetting there are two extra USB ports in it too. I just wish there was a wireless version of it.

    Great ergonomic design!

    I bought this keyboard (and a mighty mouse) when my hands were hurting from using the keyboard and touch pad on my MacBook. I really wanted the wireless keyboard. But after trying both keyboards at the store, the wired keyboard came home with me. It has a lower profile so my wrists don't have to bend up as much. The numeric keypad is a huge plus, something the wireless keyboard didn't have. I also liked the extra USB port on the keyboard. It makes connecting my camera for downloads a breeze!

    Love it!

    I bought this keyboard at the Apple Store in the Maine Mall. This is a really nice keyboard. it is very thin. I like the anodized aluminum design, giving the keyboard a tough design. The keys are thin and flat, and easy to press, and much quieter than my previous keyboard. This was what I wanted for a keyboard: Not made of cheap materials, nice design, and does not have a bunch of shortcut keys, which i never use anyway. Either way, if you are looking for a good keyboard, it is worth the $50 price tag.

    Incredible!

    Flat, slightly slanted keyboard, responsive lightening-fast keys, absolutely SILENT performance! Smooth operation, lots of function keys placed in useful and convenient positions. Easily useable with my gel wrist support. Able to type faster and more accurately than ever. WOW!

    It's the BEST

    I got a new iMac at work 7 months ago and it came with this newer version keyboard. It took a few days to get used to, but I absolutely LOVE IT! I'm a graphic designer and have no problem with the design. In fact, I type faster. I have an older iMac at home with the white keyboard and will order this new design for home. The older style takes more "finger punch." I think it must be similar to the feeling Liberaci must have had when he practiced with weights on his fingers and then, when removed, his fingers seemed weightless and just flew over the piano keys. I have worked as a full-time graphics person for over 20 years and have no carpel tunnel problems. For those with problems with the tilt of this keyboard, you may want to look at the height of your keyboard in relationship to the degree of bend in your elbows.

    If you don't need a wrist rest...

    This is a great keyboard and the number pad is a necessity. The new Apple keyboards? No thank you. This keyboard is nicely laid out and has good action. The only flaw I can see is there is no way to put a wrist rest in front. This simply makes using the keyboard clumsy and awkward.

    ZERO STARS

    The worst thing about a laptop is the keyboard, so why make a keyboard that isn't part of a laptop just like a laptop keyboard. Makes no sense!!! Sure, some people will love it because of the look. The look is not as important as the feel. Some people will love it because they do very little typing; just push a button here and there. For serious typing the keyboard needs to be bigger, tilted, and responsive with some sense of where your fingers are on the keyboard just like the previous generation Apple keyboard. That feeling is missing on this keyboard because of its smallness, flatness, and far too slippery keys. Do you get the idea I don't like it? Your mileage may vary.
