    Love it!

    I bought this keyboard at the Apple Store in the Maine Mall. This is a really nice keyboard. it is very thin. I like the anodized aluminum design, giving the keyboard a tough design. The keys are thin and flat, and easy to press, and much quieter than my previous keyboard. This was what I wanted for a keyboard: Not made of cheap materials, nice design, and does not have a bunch of shortcut keys, which i never use anyway. Either way, if you are looking for a good keyboard, it is worth the $50 price tag.

    Incredible!

    Flat, slightly slanted keyboard, responsive lightening-fast keys, absolutely SILENT performance! Smooth operation, lots of function keys placed in useful and convenient positions. Easily useable with my gel wrist support. Able to type faster and more accurately than ever. WOW!

    It's the BEST

    I got a new iMac at work 7 months ago and it came with this newer version keyboard. It took a few days to get used to, but I absolutely LOVE IT! I'm a graphic designer and have no problem with the design. In fact, I type faster. I have an older iMac at home with the white keyboard and will order this new design for home. The older style takes more "finger punch." I think it must be similar to the feeling Liberaci must have had when he practiced with weights on his fingers and then, when removed, his fingers seemed weightless and just flew over the piano keys. I have worked as a full-time graphics person for over 20 years and have no carpel tunnel problems. For those with problems with the tilt of this keyboard, you may want to look at the height of your keyboard in relationship to the degree of bend in your elbows.

    If you don't need a wrist rest...

    This is a great keyboard and the number pad is a necessity. The new Apple keyboards? No thank you. This keyboard is nicely laid out and has good action. The only flaw I can see is there is no way to put a wrist rest in front. This simply makes using the keyboard clumsy and awkward.

    ZERO STARS

    The worst thing about a laptop is the keyboard, so why make a keyboard that isn't part of a laptop just like a laptop keyboard. Makes no sense!!! Sure, some people will love it because of the look. The look is not as important as the feel. Some people will love it because they do very little typing; just push a button here and there. For serious typing the keyboard needs to be bigger, tilted, and responsive with some sense of where your fingers are on the keyboard just like the previous generation Apple keyboard. That feeling is missing on this keyboard because of its smallness, flatness, and far too slippery keys. Do you get the idea I don't like it? Your mileage may vary.

    Great Keyboard!

    I purchased this keyboard because I needed a keyboard with a numeric keypad. I own a MacBook Pro and being a recent switcher from Window's, I can't live without that numeric keypad! I already enjoy the keyboard on my MacBook Pro, and this one has pretty much the same response and feel. Although very thin, the keyboard is very rigid. The two USB ports on either end of the keyboard are a great bonus. It is nice to be able to charge/sync my iPod if all of the other USB ports are being used. I could of gone with a cheaper alternative, but I would not of had a product of this quality, functionality, and durability.

    Best keyboard I've ever used.

    Beautiful, great key-feel. My only issue is that the keys discolor easy.

    Raspberries to the engineers

    I've gone through 2 keyboards in 3 years. The spacebar died on both (I am pasting the ASCII space to type here). Other than losing the spacebar function, a great keyboard!

    sturdy and svelte

    the perfect keyboard, feels solid as a rock, the keys are just the right size, and you don't have to press the keys super hard. it's also quiet, and looks pretty stylish.

    MAC Keyboard

    It is too small even with the 10-key extension. I have had it 4 months and the enter key on the 10 key does not work. THAT is awful! I use 10 key all of the time.

    I am disappointed with this keyboard

    I have to say that I purchased this keyboard in October 2007 and suddenly last week, the "U" key stopped working.
    After calling Apple's assistance in Portugal, where I am, running some tests they've assigned me to confirm the malfunction and after taking it to an Apple's registered technician I had the response that it was not the key it is the keyboard!
    As my warranty expired 4 months ago they told me that I have to buy a new one!

    It is the first time in my years with computers and of being very fond of Apple's products, that I see a keyboard which is no longer useful after 2 years because one letter is not working.
    As I am very careful with my iMac and gadgets , it is obvious for me that this hardware is not made to last at least for a while, when it is something meant to be used on a daily basis, and it makes me wonder if Apple did not put Design and beauty ahead of the quality and resistance of this product .

    Best keyboard I've ever used

    Whenever I use someone else's keyboard I can't believe how rubbish they are. I can honestly say this is far better than any other keyboard currently on the market.

    Best Keyboard Ever

    Just got the keyboard today and it works like magic.

    I hooked it up to my pc and as all the reviews tell, it is one smooth and thin keyboard with no errors other than the eject button and the F13-F19 which is the norm on a pc!!!

    Go Apple

    Problematic keyboard not ergonomic, more ergonomic/customizable needed

    The keyboard looks slick and has nice USB ports on the side...

    However, it is too thin at the base - causes problems for folks with large hands. You have too extend and bend your wrist to be reach first and second row of the keys. In addition, the keys do not provide sufficient level of padding.

    The old Apple keyboard was much better.

    I hope Apple design folks introduce better and more ergonomic keyboard soon. It would be nice to have keyboard that is customizable extends for different size of folks - both horizontally and perhaps vertically with thicker base or option to add padding/layer under the base.

    I like it!

    I refused to believe that the chicklet keys and thin design would have the "touch" I liked in a keyboard but I was proved wrong by Apple. It is great to use for word-heavy emails and reports. The keys have a positive touch providing feedback to the user but also (somehow) seeming to encourage you to type faster. A cool design, doesn't need batteries, USB ports built in, and it's great to type with. I've had mine for several months now and it still types good as new.
