    The evolution of keyboards

    This is the top of the evolutionary scale for keyboards. I think I own about four of these keyboards for various machines and I won't use anything else now. After using one of these, any other keyboard will feel like typing on an old fashion typewriter where you had to hammer the keys down. As per usual, Apple leads on innovation, the rest will no doubt copy and produce inferior versions.

    Best keyboard ever!

    I just received this in the mail today for my windows pc. It is the best keyboard ever! It's small, comfortable, and it works great. This is by far the best keyboard anyone could ever buy!

    My only complaint though is that the bottom of the keyboard get full of dust and dirt very easily because of the material it's made out of.

    The best keyboard you'll EVER use!

    When i purchased this keyboard, i thought I'd like it because i have a older macbook Pro. (purchased just before the current ones came out...man, was i annoyed) To me, it seemed the feel would be similar, and it is. I'd say the new keyboard has a little more spring to the keys though, they feel a little more firm, and i think that's a benefit. It took me a little while to get used to the key placements, since there are small spaces between the keys. I've only had it for a day or so, and its already made me regret not buying it sooner. Also note, if you plan to use a wrist pad or anything which will elevate your hands off the surface the keyboard rests on, be careful, i learned the hard way. This is designed to be comfortable on a desk, thus the thin shape, so if you're using it in a keyboard tray with a wrist rest, be prepared to either modify the tray, or use a book. My one complaint is the space bar. to me it feels a little soft. It doesn't have quite the spring and resistance the other keys do. It doesn't really change anything for ME, but if you let your thumbs rest on the space bar, you're going to overwork office's auto correct to no end. :)
    I would also like to mention the the weight of the keyboard. In every other review its labeled as "sturdy". I would most defiantly agree. The bottom of the keyboard IS plastic, but it feels like its 1/8 of an inch think, it feels solid, rather than a piece of plastic with a thin piece of aluminum over it should. Its a beautiful design.
    You know, if i was using a PC for some ungodly reason, i'd still buy this keyboard. That's how good it is.
    Just remember, don't get discouraged jsut because it feels funny for day or two, you'll get used to it.

    Better than keyboards costing twice as much

    No keyboard can totally meet the needs of every user, but this one comes close. We have keyboards in our office that cost over $200 that are inferior. The only complaint I have is that moving from my Macbook Pro (silver Keyboard) to this one takes a period of adjustment with a lot of errors. The difference in key shape and spacing is very noticeable.

    I notice some complaints here about this keyboard failing to provide sufficient power for some USB devices. I would like to point out that no keyboard will produce more power than the source to which it is connected. If you connect this keyboard to a low power source, you can not expect it to power a high power device.

    Work of art.

    This keyboard is a work of art. Its near silent to type on, feels incredible, and works perfectley under Windows (if you would do such a thing!)

    Also, their is only one problem. The caps lock is not very sensitive, and it becomes quite annoying as I use it instead of Shift.

    Amazing!

    I bought this to compliment my ubuntu look and out of the need for a better keyboard. The keyboard is absolutely amazing, Came in great packaging and was easy to set up, typing is a lot easier and faster and the keyboard looks amazing, not to mention doubling up as a really useful USB hub. In the words of Steve ballmer,
    "I love this company!!!"

    you may have problems with the usb because...

    It clearly states on the mac website, when looking at a new mac keyboard, that the usb ports will not support iPods or other attachments that require more power than a flash drive unless hooked up to an aluminum iMac

    So before writing a review, do your research.

    Great Keyboard

    This is a keyboard that I would recommend to any Apple user. It's light, stylish, and is comfortable. I bought my keyboard yesterday and it works well especially when I'm gaming.

    Apple gets two thumbs up for this product!!!

    Great Invention

    Thought I was buying this keyboard because I needed a numeric keypad for my new 17" MacBook Pro. The price was less than $20 more than a plain numeric keypad that didn't even do the job correctly. Took it back and bought this keyboard. I love it! I had no idea how convenient it would be for not just typing numerics, but sitting with my feet propped up, this keyboard on my lap typing away . It is incredibly light and easy to use. The touch is light and easy. It is worth every penny. I give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

    Superb!

    There aren't many products that earn a five star rating from me. But this keyboard is the exception. For me it has excellent feel which has improved my typing. Its low profile prevents my wrists from getting sore. And it's super easy to keep clean. I can understand how people with long finger nails may have difficulty with it, but my nails are trimmed short, so that's not an issue.

    Just in case you're wondering what the size of perfection is.

    Old ones are great, new ones are noisy!

    Sometime in 2009 Apple made a poor revision of this keyboard and the spacebar is really noisy! My wife bought one in September 2008 and it's awesome. I just purchased a Unibody MacBook Pro and picked up one of these keyboards, but the keys now feel different and the spacebar is super noisy! A side by side comparison to my wife's keyboard makes it very obvious. Too bad!

    Amazing

    Amazing keyboard. So amazing in fact that I bought one to take to work to use on their PC's. The keyboard allows me to type a lot faster, and effortlessly. Going back to a regular keyboard is a pain. You realize how much better you can glide over the Apple "Flatboard" than you can with a conventional keyboard.

    It's ultra quiet, extremely solid, has the USB ports on either side (great for quick camera or flash drive connectivity) and best of all, it looks amazing. I get so many compliments at work on how cool it looks. I just hope they eventually come out with an illuminated version with black keys. Call it the "Flatboard Pro" if you will.

    Another blemish free Apple

    I received delivery of my keyboard this morning, as usual with Apple just when they said it would arrive, once I had torn open the packaging in a manner that no PC user would ever open a Microsoft keyboard package I was presented with what is without doubt the most beautiful keyboard I have ever owned. The seamless style and sophistication of the keyboard is a head turner for any visitors and even now several hours later I am still enthralled by it's simplicity of design. I don't want to sound like a mac obsessive but I am and I do love this product. For the skeptics among you I ill say that the keyboard took some getting used to although it is very similar to the keyboard featured on the past few generation of MacBook, except for the addition of the full range of keys one expects from a desktop keyboard. Once you get used to it though it is a dream to use. I shan't be buying another keyboard for a very long time.

    absofreakinglutely awesome

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!

    the fact that such a thin keyboard feels so solid is amazing.

    I love it I love it, I love it.

    Have I made my point?

    No Problem...

    Lots of people complain about the flatness of the keys, but it takes a day or so to adapt to it. If you used a laptop like I did before, it will be no problem at all. Unless your keys on your laptop were curved. Then it would take a day or so like I said.
