    Best keyboard I have ever had except if you have big hands.

    Not to sound picky or anything but be warned this key board is very thin and if you have big hands just as I do, your hands get tired of slouching over the keyboard. Other than that this keyboard is great.

    Great Keyboard

    When I took this keyboard out of the box I was not so sure about it, but after using it for about 15 to 20 minutes, I found that this was a fantastic device. I would highly recommend you to get this if you are shopping for a new keyboard.

    Best keyboard I've used

    I can't give it 5 stars because it's not completely flat. That would be ideal. But realistically, you need to put the circuitry somewhere, so I understand why there's a small angle to this thing.

    It's worth the money. My wrists rest on my desk as I type. Keys feel good. Typing is easy on this thing. I'm positive that I'm reducing hand strain. And it's small & minimalist, leaving out any stupidity and preserving everything you need. Takes up a minimum space on my desk. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Great design

    This is a great keyboard. I have been using it for some time now and have no complaints. I am a very fast typer and I have no problems with this keyboard. The spacing is correct and it is ultra easy to use. Apple once again you have done a great job! Thank you.

    Best 50 bucks I ever spent at Apple.

    My only gripe is that they switched around some of the F keys, eject, and sound keys. Other than that, best keyboard since the one that came with my Quadra 660av.

    Awesome

    Sleek Looks, Fabulous Feel, Good Speeds, Very Quiet

    The new keys taking you to expose and dashboard are marvelous and for a light user like myself this keyboard has opened up the ease of use to some apps.

    I really wanted a wireless one but I am glad I had purchased the wired one as the extra USB ports are very useful.

    If you are still on the Clear/White keyboards then you are missing out.

    A MUST BUY.

    I absolutely love it!!!!

    I picked this keyboard up at the apple store to go with my new mac mini. It has all the functions you could need on a keyboard plus it looks amazing with my mac. Everyone who has seen it has been amazed at how thin this keyboard is. Even though it is really thin, it is sturdy and strong because it is made out of aluminum. This is a great keyboard and I highly recommend it!

    Great keyboard.

    I upgraded from a little microsoft wireless comfort curve keyboard. I currently use the keyboard as my main keyboard on my Windows Vista Ultimate (64bit) machine and it works flawlessly. It was very easy to remap the F13-F19 keys to do whatever I wanted them to do. The only keys that do not work in windows are the eject key along with the FN toggle. To be honest I was expecting the transition to be ok with a minimal impact on my typing speed, however the transition was almost instant and I could swear that I type 10-20wpm faster. The CAPS LOCK key is fantastic no more accidental presses since I switched keyboards.
    My only issue with the keyboard was the absence of windows drivers and software to get the full potential of this keyboard. I fully understand that it is intended to be a Mac keyboard, but windows drivers and software should have been provided. They're missing out on a large chunk of customers who will not try the keyboard as it states that it only works in OSX.

    AMAZING

    I love (d) this keyboard. I got it the week it came out, and have used it until about a week ago. I love the iTunes controls on the keyboard. Make sure not to put this is checked baggage. It being so thin, mine bent a ton, and was rendered useless, today I bought the wireless one. , and am loving it.

    A new design and layout.

    It's beautiful, but there should be an ergonomic version. If Apple had an ergonomic version, the keyboards might sell more because there are more comfort options. Then there is the two USB ports on the sides of the keyboard. They really come in handy when you want to keep clutter off your desktop. The only thing is they don't produce enough power. So when you are trying to charge your iPod, it won't work because there isn't enough power being produced. The only thing you can plug in there is Apple's Mighty Mouse or something that doesn't have to be charged when plugged in. If those issues where fixed, (those are the only two) there wouldn't be so many bad reviews. I hope you guys read this. It could be the next step up for the Apple Keyboard.

    Space Bar?

    The keyboard and 'feel' are excellent. But the space bar is a SOB trying to get used to. You will type at least a half million words, before you can get the space bar to 'move' when you want to, between words. I think it'll go back to the store and I'll hook the old one back up.
    :(

    Great Keyboard

    I love the small footprint. I love how everything fits perfectly in the small footprint without looking cluttered at all. The keyboard is setup very nicely with perfectly spaced keys and inconspicuous toggle buttons. Definitely an upgrade from the previous Apple Keyboard.

    Low Power Warning - USB 2.0 ports a con!

    Great keyboard, however the reason I bought it was for the convenience of the USB 2.0 port for connecting my iPod, camera etc. When I plug these in I get a "Low Power Warning", and they don't work. Customer support now tells me that you actually need a Mac built in 2007 or later (?) to be able to run the keyboard ports as "2.0 high powered ports" and that my May 2006 computer will not be able to do so. Apparently the published minimum requirements:
    • Mac computer with available USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 port
    • Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later
    • Keyboard software update
    are required for the keyboard to work - not the USB ports. This is a joke! There are no publicly available articles that state this apparently, so not sure how the paying public are meant to make an appropriately informed decision before purchasing the advertised product. Anyway be warned.

    Not happy.

    CAPS Lock

    Re comment about space bar i have the same problem with caps lock. Apart from that its works fine. Note USB does not have enough power to run a memory drive.

    Fabulous Keyboard Much Better Than My Apple Wired One

    I ordered this keyboard and got it in five days, and I'm in Canada and it is only 4 weeks to Christmas, so thought that was pretty darn good. Keyboard itself is lovely - attractive matte aluminum on the top with two USB ports. It was very easy to hook up to my laptop external display screen and the mouse plugs into the right side of the keyboard - since I'm right-handed this is perfect. The keys are flat and I love the touch - they have the same high tech feel as the keys on my laptop but much easier to use. The angle of this keyboard is almost flat on the desk and my wired Apple keyboard had the back of it almost two inches off the desk, so it had more of an angle than my new aluminum one, but I had no problem getting used to it.

    What I really love is that the keys cover the holes and there is not much room around them. Even though I was compulsive about keeping stuff away from my other keyboard, and I almost never ate while at the computer, after a while my wired keyboard somehow got a surprising amount of small stuff (crumbs, cat hair, dust bits, etc.) underneath the keys and I couldn't get it out. I also really like that this is a full size keyboard with the number palette on the right, because I use my keyboard across the corner of my desk and it needs to be long in order to sit diagonally across the 90 degree corner. I also feel that the price is very reasonable for such a nice accessory. The set-up was really easy, follow instructions and the download was quick and easy. Often I take my exterior keyboard with me if I take my computer somewhere, and this one is thin and light, and a joy to put in my computer case.

    I'm a very fast typist, with all ten fingers the old fashioned way, and this keyboard keeps up with me no problem.

    Superb product and superb service

    Stunning service from Apple; I ordered this online and had the courier standing on my doorstep within 24 hours!!

    The keyboard itself takes a little getting used to for those of use used to the conventional keyboards that come packaged with PCs (recent Mac convert!), which have a much harder action and more raised keys. It is a much lower profile, but the action is beautiful and makes typing much more effortless.

    Beautifully designed, plugs and plays, both under Mac OS X and in Windows under Boot Camp.

    For those who type a lot, buy this and never look back. Your only regret will be not having bought it sooner.

    Apple does it...AGAIN

    The best piece of design in a long time, and for a keyboard...ever! It's really the bench mark for keyboards, for me at least, from now on. I can't begin to describe how much better it is than anything I've ever tried. It's effortless to use and makes you feel good using it. The keys are perfectly spaced and the action of them is...well perfect really. I also think this thing will wear so much better than any keyboard ever as well. There's no gaps to fill with dirt, hair or lunch.

    I did want the wireless one but wanted the number pad. I wish they had this keyboard in a wireless format.

    But the wired keyboard by it's self is flawless. 10/10 which I don't think I could ever give anything. Perfect form and function, and I think this will go down in history for design. Well done apple.

    Great Keyboard

    After a couple weeks of use I can safely say that this is probably the best keyboard I've ever used. I've never been a fan of other "flat" keyboards, but this one feels very different. Just the right amount of ease and tactile feedback to allow super-fast typing. So if you know your way around a keyboard, typing will be a breeze. If you're bad at typing there's a chance you'll get lost.

    Funny enough going back to a "regular" thick-button style keyboard now feels a bit like ancient technology.

    If you use the F keys a lot the shortcut keys won't be of much help. But if you don't like most people these days, the shortcut keys are great. Very sleek design and highly recommended.

    USB Does Not Work

    This keyboard looks great and functions well, but only as a keyboard. I used the USB ports on my old Pro keyboard all the time (because they actually supported 500mA devices). This new keyboard only supports 100mA devices. No iPods, no flash drives unless you have an alum (2007+) imac... I do not. This huge functional constraint forces me not to recommend this product unless you have the hardware to support it.
