    A typist dream come true!

    This keyboard is really good! Typing on it is just a pleasure, I love typing on it and I do it more than often just out of pleasure.

    It is extremely lightweight, very robust and you can clearly see the high quality.

    There is only one reason I am not giving out 5 stars... The lack of self illumination like my Macbook Pro keyboard.
    If Apple added the keys illumination than they would have made the ultimate keyboard!

    ALMOST Perfect

    I have both a wireless and wired keyboard (with numerics). Speaking personally, the one with numeric works almost perfect except that it is wired. It will be perfection if keyboard with numeric is turned wireless!

    Why is the 10 key pad not on every keyboard

    I originally got the wireless Bluetooth keyboard for the iMac when I purchased it. Its a good keyboard, but the wired 10 key with USB ports has made work more efficient. I no longer have to go to the back of the iMac to plug in a thumb drive, I don't have batteries to worry about or connectivity. Also adding the few other buttons like home, page up, page down etc just makes life easier. The Keys are spread out just enough to make typing easy. It looks great and the function is 100x better then the smaller wireless. This keyboard should be standard on the iMacs.

    Very Nice To Use Until...

    Very pleased with the keyboard which came with my iMac in Aug 2008 but a couple of the keys have now stopped responding and as it can't be dismantled for cleaning it'll have to be a new one. 26 months is not a particularly long life though.

    AMAZING

    I love this keyboard. It works super. I actually have 2 on my desk right now. one for my apple machine and one for my windows machine. This is the best keyboard I have ever used.

    Just short of Excellent...

    I cannot understand for the life of me why Apple did not produce a full size keyboard in wireless. I would gladly sacrifice the two USB ports for wireless! Other than that (thanks for the vent) it is an excellent keyboard. Stylish, functional, and easy to keep clean! Excellent value, and compliments my iMac beautifully.

    Good while it lasted

    I purchased the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad back in 2007 to use with my Macbook when hooked up to an external monitor. The keyboard worked great for the past 3 years until it suddenly died. One day it was working fine, the next day it was not detected. I would expect a basic USB keyboard like this to work for more than a few years, especially considering the price paid.

    Best keyboard I've ever owned

    I've tried Microsoft's Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, which, in addition to having a ridiculously long and pointless technically numeristic name, also broke very easily; I tend to spill coffee on my keyboards quite often, and they tend to break. But this keyboard didn't, it functioned perfecly after a small spill, and it's also beautifully ergonomic to use, even if it's not a split keyboard. I believe this is the fastest typing and best feeling keyboard I've ever used. And resilient as well!

    Best. Keyboard. Ever.

    I have been using this keyboard since 2007. I love it. Nothing else even comes close. I type faster and with no struggling at all. It is hard for me to find a keyboard that I don't have to fight with... I have very, very large hands, and this particular keyboard allows me to just focus on creating the content that I want, not on how/where I place my hands. If something happens to this keyboard, I'll go buy another one just like it.

    Random Problems with Tunes and key combinations

    Over the past six months I have purchased several of these keyboards for my office and personal use, I have a problem with one which turns on my iTunes on and starts playing when the keyboard is connected to my MacBook Pro. The key combination of shift and W doesn't work. I contacted Apple they had no answers, I questioned warranty and was told there is no warranty since it wasn't purchased with a computer, I questioned more and got several stories, know one at Apple could tell me what the warranty is.
    My company has been loyal Apple users since the first Mac and this is the most run around I have ever had. I do know that other keyboard manufacturers have clear warranty statements and don't require a computer purchase get get warranty.
    other than these problems the keyboard would be a solid five star rating.

    peeed off!

    I just bought a new imac i and was disappointed to get a pants wireless keyboard, talk about budget cuts, i was a victim of buying a new full size alu keyboard! why did they do that! As a designer, you need to use shortcuts and the wireless keyboard makes this difficult!

    Shocking!

    I have no problem with the key feel or ergonomics of this keyboard. My problem is that everytime I use it I get a static discharge, and not a small one. I don't know if this caused any problems with my computer (hope not), but it got irritating enough that I had to stop using it and I got an old plastic apple keyboard. I would love to get a wireless keyboard, but I have to have the numeric keyboard on the right, and Apple does not make one like that.

    Slim is in

    Been on an Apple shopping spree lately.. and this thing just fits right in to the rest of the stuff I've bought. Slim, aluminum, the keys are perfect and I am so glad to have a numeric keypad back. looks great beside magic mouse and apple display.. a definite must for people who are in front of a desktop computer for many hours in a day!

    Excellent Keyboard, but would like a wireless version!

    I love typing on this keyboard and everything about it is great except the cord! I know there is an Apple keyboard that is wireless but it would be nice to see this design in a wireless version.

    First step into quality...

    I just ordered my first MacBook Pro and bought this keyboard, Magic Mouse and HDMI connector to organize my office desk.
    I need to wait for Mac so I connected the keyboard to my present ThinkPad and... I am totally amazed!
    ThinkPads are known for their brilliant keyboard for high amount fo typing, but this is phenomenal.

    It's so easy to press the button, yet the action-point of it is so well rcognizable that I can't imagine any other keyborad for the future.

    The only downsides -
    1. I need to get used to switched "ctrl" "alt" keys
    2. Lack of insert key.
    3. it's not wireless.

    It's brilliant - buy this and keep that smile on your face.

    Looks great, feels great and I can type faster

    It looks great & matches my Macbook Pro. I prefer the feel of this keyboard to the old Apple keyboard that it replaces, as I can type quicker with the reduced key travel on these thinner keyboards. Also I have got used to the built-in keyboard on the Macbook Pro and so no longer suffer with typos after a trip away typing on the laptop. I also find it less of a strain on my wrists as it is so thin.

    But if you prefer the clunky keys on older keyboards then I guess this might not be for you.

    Looks great

    Like all mac products it looks great sitting on the desk. The keys work much better then they appear at first. Feels very heavy and worth all the cost. Single gripe I have with it is that the USB extension cable can only be used for this keyboard. There is a notch in the ends of the cable not allowing you to plug it into the keyboard side USB ports, then plug in a thumb drive, or other device. I'm not sure the reasoning behind the notching of the cable, so it gets a 4.

    Love it!

    I love this keyboard! I have been using it since it first came out (three years ago in 2007!). It takes a little while to get used to it because it is so thin, but afterwards, you can't go back to a regular keyboard.

    I prefer the numeric keyboard to the newest one without the arrows and number pad because I use those keys a lot.

    I also love the USB ports. I use one side for my mighty mouse (when the battery to my wireless mouse dies) and the other, I use for small USB drives or to sync my iPhone.

    I use the F3 keyboard shortcut quite frequently to go back and forth between windows and also the controls on the F7-F12 keys for my iTunes.

    This is really a great product and I have never had any issues with it.
