    absofreakinglutely awesome

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!

    the fact that such a thin keyboard feels so solid is amazing.

    I love it I love it, I love it.

    Have I made my point?

    No Problem...

    Lots of people complain about the flatness of the keys, but it takes a day or so to adapt to it. If you used a laptop like I did before, it will be no problem at all. Unless your keys on your laptop were curved. Then it would take a day or so like I said.

    Satisfying

    I´m new Mac Mini user after Microsoft. I must say Apple Keyboard fulfilled my expectations. User friendly, I´m able to type faster than I did with Microsoft Finger Print or Ergonomic keyboard. Apple keyboard has useful functions for me: fast keys for iTunes listening, Mac key functions, gadgets, speakers volumes and muting and many more. Function which I can make with mouse also. But more important is that with this new keyboard typing is a pleasure. I recommend to buy keyboard with numeric pad.

    Awesome...but

    I bought this product from the apple store and it has been great so far. Then one day the brightness kept going down.. When I pressed brightness up id went down again. I recommend not getting this product to those who have an intel core 2 duo white iMac 24".

    Alluminium Slimline Apple Keyboard

    I have been looking for a keyboard like this ever since I found I liked the low profile keys on laptops. The extra spacing between keys also means that I don't slip onto keys either side. Trouble was, I use a Windows XP machine and never thought this keyboard would work. Well, it does, and there are several programmes available that will allow you to reprogramme keys if you wish. Oddities like the @ symbol not being on the 2 button is no great distraction, it is found on the ' button second left to the enter key, same place as you find on windows keyboards. If Apple supply one of these as a windows replacement, and even better, their wireless version as well, it would make other keyboards obsolete for us two fingered typists. I just have to give it 5*'s.

    Very nice! Good performance/feel, looks kill!

    My wife spilled something on my 1st gen Mac Pro keyboard which I was actually quite fond of. Much to my disappointment Apple no longer produces those and the only replacement was a third-party clone. Thought I'd give the slim one a chance and after a brief adjustment of an hour or so I can honestly say that this keyboard kills! So sick! I'm a programmer and feel is a huge factor. The key response is nice and hand placement is comfortable. And wow, the aesthetics. Can't look any nicer than this. Definitely recommended.

    This keyboard go's fantasic with an old eMac.

    I have an old eMac, that I still use to store data on for work. The old original eMac keyboard were just 'craap'. lol. I guess you need a new apple keyboard to go with the apple computer. so I chose this keyboard and it doe look much better than the other one. and its fantasic having 2 USB ports instead of having just one. and the ones with the numerous keyboard sides are great because the original eMac keyboards had the numerous sides and the computer has programmed the keys already, and I can't be arsed to do all that craap again. lol. Thanks

    AWESOME - will speed up your typing

    I can type about 30% faster with this keyboard since the keys have such good response. It sucked for about a day then was awesome ever since. Don't go by the very first time you use it.

    Excellent keyboard

    I have had no difficulty at all adapting to the flat design. In fact, the keys have an ideal amount of sensitivity for me and typing is more comfortable than any other keyboard I have used in the last nineteen years.

    I am puzzled by many of the online complaints in this forum. I type by touch and view my monitor while typing, having being taught in high school to type on an IBM Typewriter. I wonder if a dependency on looking at the keyboard or not knowing how to type without looking at the keyboard poses problems for some of the dissatisfied buyers. From my experience, I can recommend the keyboard highly.

    The best keyboard I've every had

    Looks a little funky but but it has the best typing experience. I've never been a fan of the standard keyboard keys. They've always been a bit flimsy. But this keyboard is incredible for typing. The keys are solid and don't press down too deep or bounce. It has a great tactile feel. I wish they would release the extended keyboard in the wireless version.

    flat, keys = cool look and cheap to make i guess...>

    It's like trying to type on a scrabble board.
    if you touch type even to a small degree, you'll find it a real pain (i'm no secretary - but get by without looking at the board %100 of the time).

    I can type way quicker and more accurately on my old powerbook, which has the nice scissor keys, but they are larger, and curved to suit you fingers so you naturally find the middle of the keys. this problem means you fingers also bump in to other keys if you go to far to the edge of one.

    they really need to re-think what has clearly been a bit too much style over content for the only part of the mac you really touch rather than look at.

    and while you're at it apple, how about some backlighting for all us late night dingy room lovers?

    Excellent keyboard!

    I recently purchased this keyboard from a local apple store, and have been nothing but satisfied with it. I haven't experienced any problems with the keyboard, everything is extremely responsive and feels great. Probably the best keyboards I've bought in a while.

    Just a GREAT Keyboard!!!

    I was very hesitant on purchasing this keyboard, but after much personal debate...I got it. And I have to say that I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED!!! I mean it's only a keyboard but it works great and I have had none of the problems that have been listed. Maybe beginners luck. It started out without any problems and I happen to like the 2 USB ports. I plugged my mouse into it and off I went.
    If you're debating between this keyboard and another, you should really give this one a try. It's also very comfortable if you have Carpal Tunnel due to the low profile of the unit.
    Maybe a lttle pricey for a keyboard, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY!

    Slim, sleek, comfortable

    I purchased the French keyboard and couldn't be happier with it. I had been accustomed to working directly on my laptop keyboard and was wondering if I'd handle the switch well... Have no fear, it rocks.

    i like it

    first of all this is very sleek. the keys are very responsive, and also it doesn't make that annoying loud click that other plastic keyboards make. although maybe not the best keyboard for the workplace. the keys are a little spread out than other keyboards so it will take getting used to. overall its a very nice keyboard.

    Great accessory to the MacBook

    Smooth transition from using the MacBook keyboard to this external keyboard. I find it's much easier to type on with the angle. Takes a little adjustment to get used to the different function keys but it didn't take long to figure them out. The keyboard has a really low profile so it doesn't take up too much space and the price is reasonable for what you get.

    Why that layout

    Ok so it's a nice keyboard and it Works well BUT why do Apple think everyone uses an American keyboard layout! All they have done is change the hash key to a pound sign. What if I want a Hash???? Why not stick to the correct English British keyboard layout! I don't want the @ symbol there the " should be and I don't want the \ on the wrong side of the keyboard. They have put the touch typing marks on the J and F keys but an English touch typist will have problems because the other keys are in the wrong place.
    APPLE PLEASE GIVE ENGLISH PEOPLE AN ENGLISH KEYBOARD NOT AN AMERICAN ONE!!!!

    Great keyboard, even with the problems

    + looks great
    + feels great (especially for someone as picky as me)
    + sounds nice

    - manufacturing problems

    Unfortunately, the keyboard has some manufacturing issues (as described below) so you're better off to buy somewhere local and reduce your turnaround time in case you have to get a replacement.

    Problems:
    I recently bought this keyboard from a local store and unfortunately the '[' key wouldn't respond most of the time (i.e. you had to press directly on the center to get it to register -- not reasonable when you're hitting a key with your pinky finger).

    This is unlike the other keys where it doesn't really matter where/how I press them. I returned this keyboard and that store was out of stock so I went to another store and purchased another keyboard (obviously from a different batch).

    The new keyboard had the same problem, except now it's the left arrow key! I'm going to keep returning the keyboard until I get one that works for me.

    Bottom line: if you can get a properly manufactured keyboard, you will love it!

    It's OK...errors now and then

    I do seem to make typos every now and then but apart from that its a great product...better priced unlike the mighty mouse. Will need to get use to this keyboard.
