    I absolutely love it!!!!

    I picked this keyboard up at the apple store to go with my new mac mini. It has all the functions you could need on a keyboard plus it looks amazing with my mac. Everyone who has seen it has been amazed at how thin this keyboard is. Even though it is really thin, it is sturdy and strong because it is made out of aluminum. This is a great keyboard and I highly recommend it!

    Great Keyboard

    I love the small footprint. I love how everything fits perfectly in the small footprint without looking cluttered at all. The keyboard is setup very nicely with perfectly spaced keys and inconspicuous toggle buttons. Definitely an upgrade from the previous Apple Keyboard.

    Low Power Warning - USB 2.0 ports a con!

    Great keyboard, however the reason I bought it was for the convenience of the USB 2.0 port for connecting my iPod, camera etc. When I plug these in I get a "Low Power Warning", and they don't work. Customer support now tells me that you actually need a Mac built in 2007 or later (?) to be able to run the keyboard ports as "2.0 high powered ports" and that my May 2006 computer will not be able to do so. Apparently the published minimum requirements:
    • Mac computer with available USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 port
    • Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later
    • Keyboard software update
    are required for the keyboard to work - not the USB ports. This is a joke! There are no publicly available articles that state this apparently, so not sure how the paying public are meant to make an appropriately informed decision before purchasing the advertised product. Anyway be warned.

    Not happy.

    Fabulous Keyboard Much Better Than My Apple Wired One

    I ordered this keyboard and got it in five days, and I'm in Canada and it is only 4 weeks to Christmas, so thought that was pretty darn good. Keyboard itself is lovely - attractive matte aluminum on the top with two USB ports. It was very easy to hook up to my laptop external display screen and the mouse plugs into the right side of the keyboard - since I'm right-handed this is perfect. The keys are flat and I love the touch - they have the same high tech feel as the keys on my laptop but much easier to use. The angle of this keyboard is almost flat on the desk and my wired Apple keyboard had the back of it almost two inches off the desk, so it had more of an angle than my new aluminum one, but I had no problem getting used to it.

    What I really love is that the keys cover the holes and there is not much room around them. Even though I was compulsive about keeping stuff away from my other keyboard, and I almost never ate while at the computer, after a while my wired keyboard somehow got a surprising amount of small stuff (crumbs, cat hair, dust bits, etc.) underneath the keys and I couldn't get it out. I also really like that this is a full size keyboard with the number palette on the right, because I use my keyboard across the corner of my desk and it needs to be long in order to sit diagonally across the 90 degree corner. I also feel that the price is very reasonable for such a nice accessory. The set-up was really easy, follow instructions and the download was quick and easy. Often I take my exterior keyboard with me if I take my computer somewhere, and this one is thin and light, and a joy to put in my computer case.

    I'm a very fast typist, with all ten fingers the old fashioned way, and this keyboard keeps up with me no problem.

    Excellent accessory

    This is perhaps the nicest overhaul of any component or accessory I've seen in many a moon. I love the (almost) flat profile; the steadiness (no slipping and sliding); and the tactile feel of the keys (almost like typing on a flat desktop surface).

    In short, I'm sold. I'd like to see the wireless version when it's full-grown. For now, this is near-perfect.

    sweetness

    Sleek sexy, and compact. Some of all of apple's features, simply put into one keyboard. Anyway, I am a user of apple's bootcamp, and i am very dissapointed that there are not drivers out yet for the ability to use the keyboard's volume controls on the keyboard. But aside from that i like the way that apple switched the help key with fn. so, yea. highly recommend, and instead of a push, just.. tap

    one of the best keyboards

    This could be the best keyboard I've ever had the pleasure to type with.

    I've been a software engineer for the past 22 years and I must say I am very impressed with the feel of this keyboard.

    It feels solid, has just the right amount of keyboard clatter (subjective to preference) but most important feature is that it lies really flat on the desk and coupled with its solidness feel plus the texture of the keys provides for a very pleasing experience.

    You almost feel like you want to type more and more and faster and faster. I don't know what it is but just feel s right.

    Enjoy

    Has a great feel when you type

    This may sound weird, but since I have long fingernails which I use to type, when I first started using this keyboard my fingers wouldn't hit the keys just right and I was quite frustrated. However, we all learn to adapt and now my fingers "float". Took my thumb a day to adjust to the shallower profile – I kept missing the "control" key.

    After 2 weeks, I still haven't mastered holding down "caps lock" for that split second longer to turn on caps. Quite annoying to have typed something then have to go back and do it again.

    The function keys layout has changed (19 function keys now) and I wish they'd left the eject button where it was, but I love that the function keys have dual functions.

    Am I happy? You bet! Wish my boss would get me one for work...

    Electric shocks

    I love my new keyboard, it's beautiful, slim (but the buttons haven't been sacrificed in size).

    My only problem is that I'm getting electric shocks from it. I'm getting shocked on average 10 times a day. It's when I leave and then come back to my keyboard. Is my keyboard telling me that I shouldn't ever leave it? Please, someone tell me if this is normal or if I should send my keyboard back? I've had it about 1 week now.

    I give it a 5 out of 5 but if it didn't give me shocks maybe it'd give it a 6.

    Definitely a fine upgrade

    I've been using their various keyboard since 2003. This by far is the best one they've designed to date. Over the years I've always compared various keyboards to the Thinkpad's I used before going over to Apple completely. I feel that Apple has finally beaten the Thinkpad keyboard with this offering. The keys move with just the right amount of feedback, while remaining almost silent. Much better than previous models that had the distinctive clicking sound to them. Makes the last model feel like a dinosaur. My question to Apple is 'How will you top this one?"

    keyboard ok lar

    The keyboard is nice to type on and typing speed would surely increase. One issue with it is that I am using this with my mbp and some how or rather like it's being grounded properly. I get static almost every sentence I type. End up I have to get a silicon cover for it.

    One thing is for sure typing without the cover is much nicer.

    Hope I am the only with this issue.

    Ultimate keybaord for hunt and peck typists

    If you're a two finger typist this is the best keyboard you've ever used, period. No long travel keys and exactly the right amount of tactile response. You can seriously fly typing on this thing - way way way faster than the previous white gen of the Apple keyboard. This keyboard rocks!

    FANTASTIC!!!

    This is the best keyboard that I've ever owned! So thin, yet solid. Very comfortable to use. I swear I can type faster! And silent. Everyone who sees it wants to touch it and then want one too! Another great one Apple!

    Ergonomics

    I liked the keyboard fine, but after a few weeks began having trouble with my right shoulder. I think the reason is that this keyboard is longer than my old one and I have to stretch my arm out to the side to move the mouse. If you are concerned about ergonomics, this is something to take into consideration.

    The Best!!

    Hands down, by far, the best full size keyboard that I have ever used. USB ports work great with my external hard drive, mouse, etc. My only recommendation would be is to buy one as soon as possible and you will see.

    new keyboard

    I have to say Apple does it again, I have an applemac with the older keyboard so I decided to upgraded it to the new keyboard which is so sleek. Have to say its a joy to use, not only does it look good with the applemac its functionality is great.

    recommended
