    BEST! KEYBOARD! EVER!

    Seriously, I love the keys on my MacBook, and when I found out I could have them on my Mac Pro I just had to have it. Excellent in all aspects!

    WORTH IT

    There are reviews on this product that trash how it's made. Saying that there are design flaws. I feel, now that I've had it for about a month now, that I couldn't do without this product. I agree that the keys can sometimes be a little disorienting at times because they are all flat and have no contour. I mean, even the MB's have contoured keys. However, since I do own a MB and cannot find a compatible ten key pad ANYWHERE, this keyboard is a must. I write music using notation software, and the ten key pad is necessary. That reason is enough to make me love this product, but I believe that if you need a small, sleek, and just want a 'futuristic' computer keyboard, THIS IS YOUR KEYBOARD!!!

    Don't get this keyboard if you expect to use it with a KVM switch

    Had an Iogear KVM switch. It has worked with every keyboard I've had (even the old style Apple keyboard). But not with this one. The only workaround probably would be to buy a expensive powered KVM. I work for Apple and still no one at Applecare could give me a straight answer about why this was happening. Well I figured out why. It draws way too much power (one reason the extra USB's won't work on a Mac Mini). Even Iogear was shocked when I called them to try and troubleshoot it. I've had it for over a month and tried everything. So hopefully I can get my money back or just sell it to another co-worker. But if you have more than one computer, don't waste your money on it.

    GOOD LOOKING, GOOD TYPING, NOT DURABLE

    I was just getting into the feel of this until it dropped off my desktop, a measly 29", and the corner bent so that I can no longer use the control button. Impossible to fix since it is a one-piece unit. Bummer.

    LOVE IT!!!!!

    The creative team at our favorite fruit store have struck gold with this awesome keyboard. It takes a few minutes to get used to it, but once you do, you will be glad you bought it. No dirt, eye lash hairs, funky food particles to drop into the hard to clean places. This keyboard is slick, small, functional, useful and just plain well thought out! Thanks Apple Inc. This product is a welcome change to the same old stuff!

    Best keyboard ever!

    My old Apple keyboard was starting to miss entire words when I was typing. I tried this keyboard at the Apple store in NY and instantly fell in love with it so much that I was emailing as many people as possible because it made typing so much fun. My only gripe is that the keys are slightly further apart than the old keyboard. But the good thing is that these keys are more forgiving so you can tap just the corner and it still seems to catch the letter. Awesome.

    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL KEYBOARD!!!

    I had the older model bluetooth keyboard, and it was nasty over time. I didn't want to spend the time cleaning it out, and then this little beauty came out! I bought this without hesitation and I love it! I like not having to change the AA batteries every couple of months, and the overall comfort of this keyboard could not be better! It is easier to type on for long periods of time, and the keys don't make any noise if you were to be in a dorm type of situation.

    I really don't think there is a better "wired" keyboard!

    Solid, large keys, low profile and every key you need

    I have to say I was impressed by how thin yet very solid and stable this keyboard is. It is reasonable light without feeling cheap, the keys are what I think of a low press. (IE you have to go down about the same as on a laptop.) The key are clearly labeled without anything fancy. The disappointment is the side usb ports which look like a wonderful place to put you flash drive or other powered in and out devices but it does not support them. :( The other thing I do not understand is why apple did not just put a USB port on the end rather then dangle for usb??? (The dangle is included.)

    Great Keyboard The Best I Ever Had!

    I like the keyboard's great look. It looks very thin. I can put it in a small place.

    Awesome

    Absolutely love this keyboard, I'm so used to using the function keys assigned on my MacBook Pro, but I'm getting used to the new layout.

    One thing I don't understand is why Apple had to make the USB extension cord exclusive for the keyboard - I think that's a little ridiculous. I didn't even know it came with the keyboard and when I saw it I thought, "cool, I can extend my usb cable for my iPod" won't work, though. Ah well

    If You Complain You Are Crazy

    I have been using a Mac in the Ad Agency business since the very early 90's. This is the best keyboard ever imagined. If you complain about this keyboard then you must be a previous PC user and only need a computer to do spread sheets. I hooked this up to my G5 and the feel of it is unreal. No more pushing a key down about a 1/4 of an inch and sometimes having a sticky feeling to them. I can't say enough about this keyboard and I have only had it hooked up for 5 minutes

    GREAT

    I love this thing I don't have a mac but wish I did but I got it for my PC anyway. Only the eject and volume controls don't work but oh well, oh and the USB ports won't power a flash drive either.

    Come a long way

    we've come a long way from the old typewriter keys. This thing is sweet. I wonder how many of us will have used our iphone rebates to get this thing. Already seen other posts to that effect. Anyway it's really a lovely and feels wonderful to type with. this review would've been a lot shorter but it's so nice to type on. Still working out how to map the F keys the way i like, but luckily they have lot of options. Took me a sec to find the fn key which is in the home end page up page down cluster.

    people like to thank steve but i say thanks to the apple engineers
    now that you've finished this keyboard you can go home and make love to your husbands and wives - ha - iphone 2.0 is more like it.

    Slick / possible drawbacks

    Very nice design, pleasant soft touch keys. Possible surface finish scratch problem (like Power Mac case). Good price. Overall pleased.

    Awesome keyboard!

    Sometimes Apple tries to reinvent things and just mucks them up (ahem, Mighty Mouse). This new keyboard is so slick, so futuristic - I can't say enough good things about it. It makes typing so much faster and there is hardly any noise associated with it. I also like the recessed USB ports. It has a nice solid feel and is heavy enough to sit on the desk and not slide around. There are also little rubber (or silicon) feet that help in this regard as well. Again, kudos for Apple for adding their design prowess to something as mundane as the keyboard.
