      Great new keyboard

      Apple has another hit on their hands and is definitely on a roll. I replaced my original apple keyboard with the new one for my Mac Pro since the original did Apple has another hit on their hands and is definitely on a roll. I replaced my original apple keyboard with the new one for my Mac Pro since the original did not have a crisp enough key stroke...it seemed "mushy" sometimes...but now....amazing!

      Fabulous, an absolute joy to use

      This is the best keyboard I've ever used. A bit like the MacBook keyboard but more positive in use and the keys feel really solid and responsive. It's supermo This is the best keyboard I've ever used. A bit like the MacBook keyboard but more positive in use and the keys feel really solid and responsive. It's supermodel sized (wafer thin and no excess around the sides of the keyboard), quiet and is a full keyboard with a proper numeric keypad and cursor key cluster. The one I'm typing on is connected to a MacBook Pro and I'm just about to go and order 2 more, one to keep at work to save me carrying this one around and another for my Mac Mini. It's just a shame the wireless version doesn't have all the keys otherwise I'd be ordering one of those too! As for the comments about missing anti slip pads, the one that arrived here today has 4 rubber feet underneath and I haven't had a problem at all with it slipping around on my laminated desk here. All the keys work as expected as well. Apple, Well done on a genius keyboard, I'm gonna miss it when I'm travelling with just the MacBook pro.

      Totally awesome.

      You know aside from the design the best thing about this keyboard is that it is very quiet. Much more so than the old ones. I am now finally able to type while You know aside from the design the best thing about this keyboard is that it is very quiet. Much more so than the old ones.

      it reeks

      It might be a good keyboard but it will have to go back because it reeks. Its smells strongly of a mixture of acrylic nails and a touch of ammonia?

      Am I just unlucky or is it just that the quality dropped

      I am a web-developer and I travel a lot. I tend to take really good care of my products as they're the tools that bring food on my table. I've got my first k I am a web-developer and I travel a lot. I tend to take really good care of my products as they're the tools that bring food on my table. I've got my first keyboard about a year an a half ago, which died after a year, for no reason at all (never spelt anything on it, had a cover to protect it if such things were to happen) the keys started failing one after the other. So i decided to purchase another one. Delivery was fast, so at least one thing to be happy about. The keyboard by itself feels great but after only 6 month of use, never dropping it, never spilling anything on it, again the keys started failing. This time it was the light on the caps lock. Went to take my brake, locked my computer, came back and the "A" key stopped working, out of nowhere, which resulted in being locked out of the computer until i've found somebody to lend me a backup keyboard (one day of work lost as i didn't activated the digital keyboard so no way to bypass the password). So so far i've spent about 200 dollars on keyboards that keeps failing one after the other... Seriously .... On top of that the keyboard on my Mbair failed a week later, which then leaded to the screen failure according to the apple official retailer who offered me to fix the keyboard and the screen for the little price of 2800 dollars ... Yeah 2800 dollars for a Mbair that is only 3 years old. Fortunately i still have my Macmini for backup. So now i'm gonna have to purchase another keyboard, wait for you guys to release a new Mbpro which i hope will be a nice upgrade otherwise i'll have my two employees and myself to switch over another company because it is really exhausting to have products failing one after the other. I know i use them intensively but that is my job and i remember a time where my apple products would last and where the customer service would see me as a valuable customer ( 2Mac mini 2Mbpro13inch 1mbpro15inch and 1mbair + the numerous keyboard over the years). Anyways i'll give this guy another chance but if it fails again for no reason I swear i'll switch over another brand !
