    Worth every penny!

    When I got my iMac last year, the only thing I disliked about it was the keyboard. Clunky, slow to respond keys that stuck frequently seemed to be the norm. And this straight out of the box. After reading the reviews on this keyboard, I decided to give it a try. It's the best $49 investment I've made recently. I love the design and the problems I had with the previous keyboard are all solved. Add crisp, immediately responsive keys to the sleek design and Apple has a winner with this one.

    Others have mentioned the issue of not enough juice to power iPhones and iPods. Well, I had the same issue with my old keyboard so I just plug my peripheral devices into the iMac. Problem solved. If you're looking for a keyboard, look no further...you'll love this one.

    Very ergonomic, but not without flaws

    I love the fact that it is so thin that I can rest my wrists on my desk and not strain to type on the keys. I do have an issue with the right arrow key often not registering the key press, even though it gives the tactile feedback like it has been pressed.

    Also, I applied the Apple Keyboard Update 1.1 to take advantage of the special function keys, however the Exposé and Dashboard keys are non-functional when used with my MacBook Pro.

    Good Keyboard

    The keyboard itself is a great piece of work. I bought it to get more accurate typing than I did on my MBP, and that's what I got. However, the complaints about the low-powered USB ports are sad, but true. They should be fully functional for what you pay.

    Love!

    This new keyboard is the best. Beautiful modern design, comfortable ergonomics, pleasure to touch and use, improves typing speed and accuracy. If only the new iMac was this good...

    Awesome but...

    This keyboard has a wonderful feel to it but the F3 and F4 don't work with my MacBook so Apple Support told me to take it back to Myers for an exchange. Also you cannot use your iPod with this Keyboard as you get a low power warning. Nice to use but Apple has lied about USB. Lets hope the exchange will result in a better keyboard.

    AWESOMENESS!

    First of all, DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THE APPLE KEYBOARD SOFTWARE! Just like it says in the INSTRUCTIONS you get with the keyboard. So many times people just freak out and start bashing products without even reading what to do! This keyboard is amazing! 1000x better than the previous!

    Best Keyboard Ever!

    Been using it for about a week. Amazing tactility, just like the MacBook, but keys are not as rigid when pressed. Gorgeous and easy to type on.

    My only gripe is that it's a bit large (horizontally) and would have been better if they could have eliminated/utilized the space above the arrow keys. There has to be a happy medium between the BT version that has no # pad and this one. Nothing's perfect, but they did a stellar job nonetheless.

    Why has it taken the industry so long to figure out that most people prefer short travel keys? My typing speed is much better on this type of keyboard because there are no ridges to get in the way of my fingers when they flail around. Awesome!

    I'll hug it every day.

    The MacBook's keyboard is the best keyboard I've ever used for typing. I remember explicitly wishing that Apple would lift the MacBook's keyboard for use with a desktop, and that's essentially what they've done. The special functions work fine for me, and the F13-F19 keys appear to be programmable in the Keyboard & Mouse control panel, too. Despite the illusion created by the side view of the picture, the USB ports are located almost an inch inward from the sides of the keyboard. I'd have waited to buy one if I thought there was any chance Apple would produce a black one that wasn't attached to a laptop.

    to function all F keys, and volumes

    I got the same problem about the volumes and other keys. But try this. Go to system preference > keyboard > check off the box for F key control. This should make all F key functional.

    love the keyboard but...

    I can't get the volume controls to work! My system meets the requirements listed on the store web site. I use my MAC with eyetv and use the volume controls a lot. With the exception of the F-Keys I'm very happy with the keyboard.

    Elegant design, gorgeous to use, SO APPLE

    Firstly, I really wanted the Wireless keyboard, but it doesn't have a numeric keypad and that's the only reason I need a keyboard attached to my MacBook.
    However, that aside, I absolutely love this keyboard. I love the incredibly low profile of the keys (the same as my beloved MacBook) but I do find, if I don't pay close attention and hit the spacebar just right, then I'm constantly going back to add spaces between words. But I think that's just bad habit on my part and not a fault with the keyboard. Other than that, the extra couple of USBs comes in handy - especially until I can afford an Airport Extreme :D.

    I'd recommend this keyboard to anyone and just wish it would work with my Windows PC at work.

    What a great upgrade

    I'm a Mac fan but the white keyboard in the clear plastic tray (dirt catcher) that came with my IMAC was a nightmare.Dirt was always visible and the keys would stick at times.
    This new keyboard looks great,is easy to clean and helps even a bad typer like me to type better.Finally Apple got it right in a big way.

    Let me repeat what everyone else has said....

    I go through keyboards as fast as a baby goes through disposable diapers. For me, the keyboard is the single most important experience for the computer user. There must be absolute comfort, feel and ability to type with
    an abundance of speed.

    I have used something as bland as the Logitech S530
    keyboard/mouse combo and something as expensive as the
    Logitech DiNovo which sells for $200.

    This new Apple Keyboard is something rather spectacular
    for what it is.

    Arriving in a HUGE box that gets shipped from Apple
    (this must be their idea of a joke), beneath the mounds
    of packing paper is a small sliver of a package that
    contains this tiny marvel.

    Setting up the keyboard was easy. Apple even included
    a USB extension. Though I detest wired keyboards as
    a rule, I suddenly don't seem to mind.

    This keyboard is ultra-responsive. People were not
    kidding when they said typing speed is dramatically
    improved thanks to the spacing of the keys. The overall
    touch is firm and responsive. The keyboard is a work
    of beauty. This is a "must buy!"

    I'm glad I got it... but...

    First, it lays almost flat on my desk... the picture gives the impression that it is fairly elevated in the back, giving a fairly steep angle between the top and the bottom of the keyboard - which would have been great. I don't type "flat", so I had to find a rig a small box to prop up the back, to give me a greater angle.

    Second - the shipping department needs to be fired and/or educated about "shipping". My one-inch thick keyboard came in a 12-inch high box! My precious keyboard was placed on the bottom of the box, and 11 inches of packaging material was placed on top of it!

    How stupid and careless! Put 5 inches of packing on the bottom of the box, then the keyboard, then 5 more inches of packing...

    Show the guys in shipping how to treat packing a box like they used to make Big Macs... bun, meat, bun!

    This makes Bill Gates look smart!

    Great keyboard!

    I really really like this keyboard. Size, keys all work for me.
    I haven't figured out how to get some of the new key functions to work after installing the keyboard update software.

    But love it without those.

    Best Keyboard Since the Legendary Extended

    Do you chew through junk membrane keyboards in mere months? If so, you're in luck! Apple have finally produced a keyboard that not only kicked the iMate and Apple Extended keyboard off my desk, but is possibly the only acceptable keyboard they've made since the Extended II. The key action is lovely (even if the travel is a little restricted), but the keyboard isn't nearly as loud as my Extended or my IBM Model M. The placement of the USB ports could've been better (pointing to the back would be nice), but, in light of this device's excellence just in being a keyboard, I have to rate it 5 out of 5.
