    Keyboard shortcuts do not match the MacBook What was Apple thinking??????

    I purchased this keyboard to use with my MacBook. None of the keyboard shortcuts match the shortcuts on the MacBook. What possible reason would Apple have for not being consistent throughout their product lines? Amazing! Unbelievable!

    Excellent!

    People are using some pretty strong words in their reviews like, "love, best friend, passion, i sleep with my new keyboard. I try to save words like "love" for things that not objects. This keyboard does what Apple said it would do. Like everything else Apple, it's sweet. Excellent keyboard, but I don't sleep with it.

    needs more thought

    Well it looks great feels great but not really well thought out practically.The cable is too short especially if have the 24" screen you need to sit at a distance at least provide an ext cord.especially the wired mouse is even shorter,i mean how much would it cost to incl a longer cable maybe 30pence.Also the function keys could have been placed over the numeric keys on the right then they could be software setting to make them one touch as you already have one touch numbers above and the play/pause/brightness buttons can be left alone.The enter/return key is too small for a key thats used the most and can easily be missed.The caps key needs a few trys sometimes too i found that even with the wireless version.Apart from all this its a lovely keyboard if you can put up with the above points,its still passes the apple quality you would expect

    Excellent

    Excellent keyboard!
    Nice transition if you are used to laptop keys.
    Beautiful to type on, doesn't take much desk space, easy to keep clean, and the price is very good.

    Caps Lock to Control re-mappers beware

    The keyboard is great and fast, BUT if you're used to re-mapping the (useless) Caps Lock key to be a Control key, beware that it may not work as expected.

    The keyboard has a built-in hardware delay on the Caps Lock key which requires a little-bit longer press to activate. While this 'feature' may be great for avoiding accidental Caps Lock usage, the behavior is a hinderance when it is used as a Control modifier key.

    The delay behavior remains in effect even when the key is remapped and it does not seem possible to alter via software, which makes the keyboard potentially useless for coders, Emacs users, etc

    Best Keyboard Ever!

    Once I saw the release of this keyboard It was a must on my list. I love apple in every way. I ditched my old PC keyboard and upgraded to this fine one. It's great it works on PC's. I would have been heart broken if It was only limited to macs.

    It makes typing borning letters a blast with its slick design and firm keys and its not really hard to do some gaming with it too.

    Having USB 2.0 ports buit in is yet another plus! plugging in my ipod touch, headsets, or my extrnal hard drives has never been so simple. I dont have to never bend down to the bottom of the pc ever again.

    terrible

    I only bought this because my previous keyboard broke (space bar stopped working), making this keyboard #3 in 3 years. Hopefully 3 is my lucky number, as I'm now on my third power supply for my iMac G5 as well. This was the most basic keyboard I found in the Apple store at my local mall. Apparently you can't get anything for under $50, whereas my previous Apple keyboard was around $30. So I plug it in and find that I can no longer control the volume or screen brightness through the keyboard, since I am still running Panther (10.3.9) and this requires you have 10.4.10. The function keys are way too small and I have to lean in close to read the print on them. As a replacement, it's an inferior product at a higher cost. Apparently Apple is trying to force people to upgrade since this thing only works correctly with Tiger and you can't get the old keyboard anymore. No problem, I'll be upgrading to Vista shortly.

    Best in Class!

    I just love this keyboard. I never understood the ergonomic benefit of "standard" keyboards where key travel is so big - it is just more strain to your fingers. This keyboard is very close to "laptop" feel and it is just awesome. Light touch and short key travel is a boon to my tendonitis-ridden arms. Don't let the spacing between keys confuse you - the distances between buttons are standard. I felt comfortable typing on this one on third email!

    My only hope this great product will set a new industry standard for keyboards! Really!

    Suprise!

    I have always loved the latest and greatest, espeiclally when it comes to Apple. I had the iPone 2nd day it was realeased. When I saw the new keyboard I thought it was nice and well designed, but was concerned that it would not be as good to type with as my regular apple keyboard where the keys are more raised. To my suprise I took to the new keyboard like a duck to water! It's awsome! I love the low profile. I love the look of it, and for some weird reason, I feel I type better on it. I recomend this new keyboard. Apple.....you did it again!

    Very Thin, Love it!

    The new Apple Keyboard is by far the best keyboard I have EVER used!! It make typing easier, and more fun. The only complaint I have with this keyboard is for some reason I can't get the OPTION key to work when rebooting my mac so I could pick to boot into Windows. As for the no OPTION problem, well just use System Preferences to boot into selected OS or CD/DVD.

    However maybe with Leopard it will be perfected. Other than that though this is the BEST keyboard I have seen.

    Can't customize keys

    I had a wireless for MacPro Quad Intel

    This keyboard won't let me use the volume keys. I tried the keyboard update over and over.

    I can't get the volume keys to work.

    Otherwise love the look and feel, but not total function.

    Keyboard is addicting

    The keys are addicting. At first, I thought it was a good keyboard. But you don't want to go back to another keyboard.

    Function keys are a bit too small. That's a quibble.

    The markers on the F and J don't do it for me.

    On the whole, the new iTunes function keys are not for me.

    No ergonomic curving. A slight curve is achievable.

    If you can afford it, this keyboard is good.

    BOO.

    I was disappointed with this keyboard....I actually hated it. I traded my keyboard with someone else, for the regular apple keyboard. Its hard to get used to, and after a month of having it, I decided to give it up. The keys are weird because they're really small and it feels like you don't have to push down a lot, but you actually do. It made me mess up too much. Me no like.

    AWESOME! Apple has done it again!!

    Once again, Apple comes out with a product that blows everyone else out of the water. At work, I use ancient, clickty-clacky, piece-of-crap PCs and keyboards, and then in the evenings I get to come home to my BEAUTIFUL MacBook Pro with this lovely external keyboard set up for heavy-duty computing (working from home). Makes typing effortless and fun. If you like the feel of the Mac laptop keyboards, you'll love this. Brings that laptop keyboard feel to your desktop set-up. THANK YOU APPLE!!!

    Love it, Awesome!

    I replaced my older white Apple Keyboard with this one, and it is much better. It has a better feel, and they keys are more spaced out, making it easier to type. I love the buttons for iTunes, Expose, and Dashboard. The keys feel light to the touch and are easy to use. I would recommend this keyboard to anyone in the market for one.

    Form and function -- AN AMAZING KEYBOARD!

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD! It's design is, well... Apple... genius of the refined aesthetic. It is the embodiment of the whole notion that less is more.... like a Danish Modern piece of furniture. It's really so nice to look at. From a functional perspective, it's pretty darn perfect as well. For me, anyway. Why didn't anyone think thin like this before? It's ergonimally so much better suited to work with human hands... no need for any additional props to lift your wrist up to achieve a comfortable position.. You just lay your hands on the desk where they naturally fall, and and this keyboard gently supports them... simply amazing...... simply, perfect.

    Great Keyboard

    Recevied the new keyboard today & have to say it's great to use. Does'nt take up much room on my desk & is really comfortable to use.

    The best thing is it will be really easy to clean as before I was using the White Bluetooth Keyboard & only after 3 months use it was starting to look grubby.

    The Aluminium finish compliments my Mac mini as well.

    The only thing that I got to get used to is the Enter/Return key is much smaller then other keyboards I have used.

    Yet another top Apple Product!!!
