    Dont buy its rubbish !

    I bought one of these and the G key was loose and making a horrible noise so i took it make to the apple store and they changed it no fuss......I got this one home and its got the same problem on the space bar !! Normally i wouldn't care but when im spending £30 on a WIRED keyboard i expect perfection. not keys that don't fit properly

    Great keyboard!

    This keyboard is wonderful! It is so small it hardly takes up any space on your desk and is very nice to type on. The best keyboard I've ever owned. There are so many function keys I hardly need the mouse! Much better than the apple pro keyboard and dell keyboards! I recommend it to anyone who wants a nice easy to type on keyboard!

    Wow!

    Great keyboard, I love it, no problems at all, Great feel and makes typing a joy. Only reason why i don't rate it 5 starts is because there isn't anyway if you have the small one, you can't use the numbers up top as the numbers on the right, like you can't compensate. That kind of stinks

    Definitely What All Keyboards Will Be Like In The Future

    I have a PowerMac G5 Dual and was using one of those cheapo external USB Bluetooth adaptors in combination with a Rocketfish keyboard that I acquired from a coworker. After a night of too much red wine, I walked past my G5 tower and my leg caught the BT dongle and snapped it clear in half, beyond repair. Desperately in need to have my computer back up and running, I swore I'd get a wired solution for now until I had the time to get the correct Apple built-in BT card (and then still keep the wired keyboard as backup in case the batteries died, etc.). What an excuse to buy the latest Apple keyboard, right? I went to the local Best Buy since it was closer than the Apple store and I was fortunate enough that they only had the large keyboard since I was torn between the large and small. I then justified it further by stating if I ever got the built-in BT adaptor, I would have the small-form factor Apple BT keyboard anyway.

    Anyway, I LOVE the feel of this keyboard. I haven't had any of the "spacebar" issues that others have complained about. The keyboard feels very comfortable and natural to type on. I would never go back to the Rocketfish even though the Rocketfish technically has more features with a built-in cushioned wrist pad, etc. I think I just prefer Apple keyboards with Macs. I'm sick of having to guess which key will perform "command", "option", and "control" and always being wrong. The Windows key always bugs me too. The "wondering which key will eject the drive" bugs me. I think the simple design of the Apple keyboard wins out. From an aesthetic point of view, It totally compliments my 30-inch Cinemascreen and my Powermac tower too. And I have two extra USB ports too (even though they would not power my iPhone no matter what port I plugged them into). Ah well. Fix that issue and add some backlighting (it's a wired keyboard after all), and you have a five-star product instead of the current four stars I'm giving it.

    Wish keys were black

    I love my aluminum apple keyboard, with numeric keypad. I just wish the keys were black, like my Macbook Pro. I've had my desktop keyboard for a while now (a year?) and it's not too dirty yet (not like the clear and white models from yesteryear) but I would feel better if the keys were black (and backlit, like my Macbook Pro also)

    slick!!!

    replaced the older apple keyboard and i absolutley LOVE this keyboard. its very thin, sleek, and professional looking. i love the build, it gives you more room compared to the previous plastic model. love the keys, laptop type. only wish it was backlit and that would be a cherry on top.

    excellent keyboard

    with the numeric keypad it becomes very cable, in addition to being beautiful. the keys are much easier to type on than the old tall-profile keyboards, and even easier than my fall 2009 macbook pro. the only problem is that it is too low to be kept on a bare desk - my hands seem to be in an awkward position. i remedied this by placing a mousepad underneath, and now it is perfect. :-D

    Fantastic Keyboard

    This is a truly fantastic keyboard. Not only is it stunning to look at, but the real magic lies in the keys. The laptop style chiclet keys are a pleasure to type on. The short travel depth requires less force to push in, and your fingers can move faster and more accurately between keys. This keyboard has increased my WPM and my accuracy in typing. And it just FEELS good. I admit, I am a PC user, but I have to confess that Apple has created a truly fantastic device.

    Hate that it is not cordless

    Don't understand why Apple have turned away from the bluetooth keyboard. It is a shame that no numeric keyboard from Apple is avaliable. Such a shame, and besides USB ports are used very rare cause of the internet.. Could easily live without the USB ports.


    Never the less, the keyboard is more than fantastic!!

    looks good, feels bad

    visually clean and elegant.
    tactile feedback is poor, and the upside-down-W graphic on the M key drives me nuts.

    Merry Christmas to Me!

    One thing that Apple does that no PC has ever approached is style. This keyboard is a work of art on top of its amazing functionability. I fell in love with this keyboard at the store and Santa just put one under the tree. Apple engineers and designers have finesse and vision that Windows folks try to copy but just can't seem to duplicate. Sleek. Slim. Stylish. Thank you Apple!!!

    Love This Keyboard

    I ordered this when I purchased my new iMAC because I do a good amount of work with numbers on a variety of tasks. The number pad makes it so easy it's a joy. I'm glad I made the purchase. Unfortunately, I had to order it on line and therefore had to order the iMAC on line; I would have preferred to make the purchase at the Apple Store.. Why isn't it available through the Apple Store?

    Great, even on Microsoft Windows Computer's

    I got this keyboard because I wanted the mac feel but could not make the complete change from windows to mac. This works really well even though Apple does not say that it does.

    Only things are not used are the eject key, and Function (fn) keys
    The other change is that number lock is called clear.

    Other wise it is a really great keyboard and I would recommend it to anybody with a Microsoft Windows computer!

    LAZY

    The volume controls are on the F10-F12 keys while the F16-F19 keys are blank.
    Optimal:
    F16 = vol down
    F17 = vol up
    F18 = mute
    F19 = eject

    The way was it stands is fine for the w/o keypads
    This was a lazy extension for the W/ keypads

    As the volume and ejects are not reassignable, one loses usage og them of the vital F-keys which they cramp. One has to choose wether to be forced to hold down function key half the time or throw the keyboard out the window.
    I am typing this on the clear/white plastic one from yesteryear, which was sensibly built.

    Waiting for the next step...

    I have been using this keyboard now for 6 months and from the day I got it I loved it BUT I'd upgrade in a New York minute if I could just find a comparable illuminated keyboard.

    Great Keyboard

    Fantastic key board use it all day every day and does not miss a beat, keys all very easy to use leaves standard keyboards for dead. A bluetooth keyboard with numeric keyboard would be even better.

    Did not last beyond warranty period

    I got this keyboard with the iMac I bought. I do not type much on it because I am not home very often. I do not eat, drink or smoke in front of the computer. Then after a year and 2 or 3 weeks the 'v' key started to require hard pressing in order to get the 'v' on the screen. Now being a fix-all-you-can type IT guy, I tried to open it to try to clean it. You cannot, unless you break the keyboard. Big disappointment, a disposable keyboard at a not-disposable price.

    Nice Keyboard

    This keyboard is not just nice but really functional. It is a typical Mac keyboard where the keys are just slightly closer so your fingers don't travel as far like with traditional keyboards. Soft touch, so you don't have to pound on the keys like the older Mac keyboard. Keys are still white and they get a little discolored, but I just unplug the keyboard and hit it with a degreaser and it is bright white again. All around a great keyboard.
