    Really nice accessory...

    • Written by from Coraopolis

    I am using this wireless keyboard with my new ipad 2 and i must say it rocks!!! The main purpose of purchasing ipad 2 was browsing and as we know browsing is not limited to reading any more and just like this one you might want to put lot of reviews, write emails, searching for stuff has got lot more easier. I also plan to use apps like iwork and logmein so that i can do some time work remotely. This keyboard just make things lot easier than using that ipad virtual keyboard...

    Sore-neck no more!!

    • Written by from Lake bluff

    All in all a very solid product ~ my only reason for not giving a full 5 star rating is because of the slight feeling i get from time to time that it is on the smaller side even though it is distinctly the same full size chicklet keyboard from my MBPro.

    I combined this with the wireless Trackpad so my MBPro could sit up on a stand on my desk for times when i'm stationary and don't want to be hunched over the laptop for hours on end. The two of these products make it so much more comfortable to work at my desk.

    A great addition to any busted keyboards or simply to stop reinacting The Hunchback of Notre Dame every time you write for more than 45 mins.


    Cheers

    Not quite perfect.

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    Nice battery life, nice size, nice to type on. I use one at my office to do most of my keyboarding on.

    Easy to pair up with macs and the ipad.

    But you can't modify Apple's own keyboard to give it more iOS functionality, like remapping buttons to serve as a home button, etc., when third party cases can? Really?

    If the zagg keyboard was a little bit bigger (and not quite so netbook-ey) I'd almost prefer that.

    Solid, but needs num pad

    • Written by from Fairfax

    Excellent keyboard, but I wish it were full-sized. It types well especially if you are used to apple laptop keyboard and with the magic track-pad, it's a great match-up.

    Worth the buy

    • Written by from Union

    It is definitely a must have especially if you need to do some extensive coding. The only complaint is it should have a numeric keypad like the wired has. Other than that it is perfect. I am giving it 4 out of five stars because of the for mentioned numeric keypad

    Connection Problems

    • Written by from Brisbane

    I love this little thing, I bought this at JB HI FI. $100 I thought must be a great little thing. Smooth, Light, Portable. Playing WoW on my TV in bed with this Keyboard and my Logitech M305 Wireless mouse is so much easier then straining my back in a chair. Only problem I have is the fact It will say Connection Lost then Connected again. Not sure if it's the Keyboard, My New MacBook Pro which has Mac OS 10.6.7 I'm just lost as to what it would be. Maybe it's to do with the Keyboard putting itself to sleep (if it does). I hope someone has had the same problem or someone that knows what's going on can Let me Know.

    Best Typing Keyboard Out There

    • Written by from Hartford City

    I have loved this thing since day one. Very sleek yet big enough for even my sausage fingers. The only thing holding me back from giving it a full five starts is that it does not have a number pad. This is not a deal breaker for me, I obviously use one, but it might be for people who do number work all day long, but that aside, this is the best wireless keyboard money can but right now.

    Would never go back!

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    I short it one star because Apple really could give it a forward delete key (shave the right-hand Shift key to add a skinny forward delete, for example). It is a pain to have to make do by holding down the fn key while using the regular Delete.

    I don’t understand anyone complaining about it being hard to type on. After a day or two I was happy as a lark with this petite, attractive thing. But alas, after a year, I spilled a seventy-dollar glass of wine on it (the cost of a new keyboard)... and it is a shame I didn’t get to drink all of it at that price (the part that spilled).

    So I’ve had to plug in the old standard keyboard to get by for a day or two, and man let me tell you, what a clunky old piece of archaic equipment. Seemed I had to push WAY down on the keys and, well, clunky is the word. I can type faster on the aluminum keyboard without having to give my fingers such a workout.

    Works well with iPad.

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    This is a typical keyboard that works well with the iPad as well as Windows PCs. Nothing too special, except the inclusion of a Caps Lock indicator (usually not available on wireless keyboards). The keyboard does use a lot of battery which needs to be replaced often. You can use it with AA rechargeable batteries but it does not come with charging capabilities.

    A small advice to apple, lower the power consumption and use a single AA battery and allow it to be charged over USB or with a small dock.

    You Get What You Paid For

    I got this wireless keyboard a Futureshop yesterday. The product is in stellar condition, the built quality is excellent and it is SO small compared to PC keyboards :).

    It takes a bit of time to get used to the keyboard. It has NO keyboard flex whatsoever and the keys seem to be very responsive.

    I'm using the keyboard with an Acer 3820tg laptop, and its integrated bluetooth module. It took less than five minutes to set up and works perfectly with the module (I my Logitech wireless keyboard and even my Microsoft mouse working).

    The keyboard is compact yet very sturdy and looks very resistant. The only downsides are that the functions keys do not work when used with a PC (even the play/pause/etc buttons) and that there is no delete key (when used with a pc). It instead is used as a backspace. In windows you can delete something with Ctrl+D, but in applications you often need the real delete key. I heard that the software "EventGhost" could adress the issue.

    It's the 2th apple product that I've bought in my life (1st one was an iPod Touch) and I am very satisfied with my products as they just work PERFECTLY. My next plan: Get a Apple laptop!

    Great Keybord, Needs Numbers

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    I got this for my macbook pro and it works beautifully. It has the exact same dimensions as EVERY apple keyboard from the last few years, so as a touch typer it is easy to switch back and forth. It is super durable and super light. my only complaint is that it doesn't have a keypad. This is inconvenient not only because of the functionality of the keypad, but because it is narrower and that makes it harder to type with it on your lap. over all I am extremely satisfied with this product.

    Very nice keyboard!

    • Written by from Houston

    I'm new to Mac, so with my purchase of a Mac Mini and a MacBook Air, I decided to complete my collection and spring for the Magic Mouse and the Wireless Keyboard.

    First off, out of the box, it's ready to go, batteries and all. It's extremely simple to connect to your computer, and you don't have to worry about turning it on and off all the time to save the battery (there's a built-in 'sleep' mode).

    The only downside is that Apple doesn't offer a wireless keyboard with a numeric pad ... something that some people like, but others need. While my wife won't be doing her college math homework on one, I love everything else about this keyboard.

    Recommendation: Unless you absolutely have to have a numeric pad, this is the keyboard that goes perfectly with your Mac!

    Does what I expected it to

    • Written by from Shoreline

    I have a 15" MBP which I move between my family room and my office. When in the office, the MBP sits on a notebook stand from another manufacturer. I previously used a PC-compatible USB keyboard in the office, but I was often frustrated by the different key layouts on the MBP and the PC keyboard.

    The Apple Wireless Keyboard is an ideal solution for me. It has exactly the same size and layout as the MBP's keyboard so I can seamlessly move between the two rooms without having to mentally translate my keystrokes.

    As some reviewers have noted, it has neither a numeric keypad nor a forward delete key; but neither does the MBP. And besides, even a quick glance at the graphics of the Apple Wireless Keyboard on the Apple Website makes it clear what keys the device does, and does not have.

    I love how small this is and feels just like my macbook pro. Wish it was backlit, but can't get everything you want. No problems yet and it's a great way to keep the wear-and-tear down on my pc.

    No Numeric Keypad: Beauty over Utilitarianism

    • Written by from Batesville

    This kerfuffle about no numeric keypad on the mac wireless keyboard reminds me of falling in love with the "perfect" person...only to want them to change once you have your claws into him or her. The wireless keyboard doesn't have a numeric keypad...because it doesn't. Apple products are about aesthetics as much as design and features. Aesthetics are what true Apple Heads have always coveted. Apple does its best to meld the three. But in the end, it has to feel like art. And if utilitarian aspects, like a numeric keypad, detract from its beauty, lightness/contour, and tactile experience...it has to be jettisoned. This is what all the PC converts to Mac have to understand. Otherwise, break up with Apple and find something else. But don't compromise a beautifully designed Apple product. (Apple please don't start compromising your aesthetics to comply with the masses who are just discovering your products. True AppleHeads have always known who they are and don't want to be brought down several levels. Keep doing what you've always done: making art.)

    Great, but...

    • Written by from Carlisle

    I am one of those people who insists on having an external keyboard and mouse for my laptop and I have discovered that I prefer the Apple peripherals (Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard). The keys feel great under your fingers and have no flex, just like on the MacBooks. I do wish, though, that Apple would make a wireless keyboard with a numerical pad. Just a small complaint but it is something you get used to over time. Other then that, no complaints.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Desert Hot Springs

    I love this keyboard. I don't really like "traditional" keyboards. I don't like a lot of wires all over the desk. I use it along with the Magic Mouse mainly because I use an external monitor with my MacBook Pro. All in all it is a great keyboard. It's not for everyone, but It works for me.

    Pros: Sleek, Sexy, Aluminum, Bluetooth, Easy to pair, It Just Works.

    Cons: No 10 Key (The reason the fifth star is not selected.)

    I would suggest you try it out first at a local Authorized Apple Retailer or Apple Store.
