    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.

    Great Keyboard!

    I purchased this keyboard because I needed a keyboard with a numeric keypad. I own a MacBook Pro and being a recent switcher from Window's, I can't live without that numeric keypad! I already enjoy the keyboard on my MacBook Pro, and this one has pretty much the same response and feel. Although very thin, the keyboard is very rigid. The two USB ports on either end of the keyboard are a great bonus. It is nice to be able to charge/sync my iPod if all of the other USB ports are being used. I could of gone with a cheaper alternative, but I would not of had a product of this quality, functionality, and durability.

    Best keyboard I've ever used.

    Beautiful, great key-feel. My only issue is that the keys discolor easy.

    Raspberries to the engineers

    I've gone through 2 keyboards in 3 years. The spacebar died on both (I am pasting the ASCII space to type here). Other than losing the spacebar function, a great keyboard!

    sturdy and svelte

    the perfect keyboard, feels solid as a rock, the keys are just the right size, and you don't have to press the keys super hard. it's also quiet, and looks pretty stylish.

    MAC Keyboard

    It is too small even with the 10-key extension. I have had it 4 months and the enter key on the 10 key does not work. THAT is awful! I use 10 key all of the time.

    I am disappointed with this keyboard

    I have to say that I purchased this keyboard in October 2007 and suddenly last week, the "U" key stopped working.
    After calling Apple's assistance in Portugal, where I am, running some tests they've assigned me to confirm the malfunction and after taking it to an Apple's registered technician I had the response that it was not the key it is the keyboard!
    As my warranty expired 4 months ago they told me that I have to buy a new one!

    It is the first time in my years with computers and of being very fond of Apple's products, that I see a keyboard which is no longer useful after 2 years because one letter is not working.
    As I am very careful with my iMac and gadgets , it is obvious for me that this hardware is not made to last at least for a while, when it is something meant to be used on a daily basis, and it makes me wonder if Apple did not put Design and beauty ahead of the quality and resistance of this product .

    Best keyboard I've ever used

    Whenever I use someone else's keyboard I can't believe how rubbish they are. I can honestly say this is far better than any other keyboard currently on the market.

    Best Keyboard Ever

    Just got the keyboard today and it works like magic.

    I hooked it up to my pc and as all the reviews tell, it is one smooth and thin keyboard with no errors other than the eject button and the F13-F19 which is the norm on a pc!!!

    Go Apple

    Problematic keyboard not ergonomic, more ergonomic/customizable needed

    The keyboard looks slick and has nice USB ports on the side...

    However, it is too thin at the base - causes problems for folks with large hands. You have too extend and bend your wrist to be reach first and second row of the keys. In addition, the keys do not provide sufficient level of padding.

    The old Apple keyboard was much better.

    I hope Apple design folks introduce better and more ergonomic keyboard soon. It would be nice to have keyboard that is customizable extends for different size of folks - both horizontally and perhaps vertically with thicker base or option to add padding/layer under the base.

    I like it!

    I refused to believe that the chicklet keys and thin design would have the "touch" I liked in a keyboard but I was proved wrong by Apple. It is great to use for word-heavy emails and reports. The keys have a positive touch providing feedback to the user but also (somehow) seeming to encourage you to type faster. A cool design, doesn't need batteries, USB ports built in, and it's great to type with. I've had mine for several months now and it still types good as new.

    Great keyboard!

    This keyboard is wonderful! It is so small it hardly takes up any space on your desk and is very nice to type on. The best keyboard I've ever owned. There are so many function keys I hardly need the mouse! Much better than the apple pro keyboard and dell keyboards! I recommend it to anyone who wants a nice easy to type on keyboard!

    Wow!

    Great keyboard, I love it, no problems at all, Great feel and makes typing a joy. Only reason why i don't rate it 5 starts is because there isn't anyway if you have the small one, you can't use the numbers up top as the numbers on the right, like you can't compensate. That kind of stinks

    Definitely What All Keyboards Will Be Like In The Future

    I have a PowerMac G5 Dual and was using one of those cheapo external USB Bluetooth adaptors in combination with a Rocketfish keyboard that I acquired from a coworker. After a night of too much red wine, I walked past my G5 tower and my leg caught the BT dongle and snapped it clear in half, beyond repair. Desperately in need to have my computer back up and running, I swore I'd get a wired solution for now until I had the time to get the correct Apple built-in BT card (and then still keep the wired keyboard as backup in case the batteries died, etc.). What an excuse to buy the latest Apple keyboard, right? I went to the local Best Buy since it was closer than the Apple store and I was fortunate enough that they only had the large keyboard since I was torn between the large and small. I then justified it further by stating if I ever got the built-in BT adaptor, I would have the small-form factor Apple BT keyboard anyway.

    Anyway, I LOVE the feel of this keyboard. I haven't had any of the "spacebar" issues that others have complained about. The keyboard feels very comfortable and natural to type on. I would never go back to the Rocketfish even though the Rocketfish technically has more features with a built-in cushioned wrist pad, etc. I think I just prefer Apple keyboards with Macs. I'm sick of having to guess which key will perform "command", "option", and "control" and always being wrong. The Windows key always bugs me too. The "wondering which key will eject the drive" bugs me. I think the simple design of the Apple keyboard wins out. From an aesthetic point of view, It totally compliments my 30-inch Cinemascreen and my Powermac tower too. And I have two extra USB ports too (even though they would not power my iPhone no matter what port I plugged them into). Ah well. Fix that issue and add some backlighting (it's a wired keyboard after all), and you have a five-star product instead of the current four stars I'm giving it.

    Wish keys were black

    I love my aluminum apple keyboard, with numeric keypad. I just wish the keys were black, like my Macbook Pro. I've had my desktop keyboard for a while now (a year?) and it's not too dirty yet (not like the clear and white models from yesteryear) but I would feel better if the keys were black (and backlit, like my Macbook Pro also)
