    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL KEYBOARD!!!

    I had the older model bluetooth keyboard, and it was nasty over time. I didn't want to spend the time cleaning it out, and then this little beauty came out! I bought this without hesitation and I love it! I like not having to change the AA batteries every couple of months, and the overall comfort of this keyboard could not be better! It is easier to type on for long periods of time, and the keys don't make any noise if you were to be in a dorm type of situation.

    I really don't think there is a better "wired" keyboard!

    Solid, large keys, low profile and every key you need

    I have to say I was impressed by how thin yet very solid and stable this keyboard is. It is reasonable light without feeling cheap, the keys are what I think of a low press. (IE you have to go down about the same as on a laptop.) The key are clearly labeled without anything fancy. The disappointment is the side usb ports which look like a wonderful place to put you flash drive or other powered in and out devices but it does not support them. :( The other thing I do not understand is why apple did not just put a USB port on the end rather then dangle for usb??? (The dangle is included.)

    Great Keyboard The Best I Ever Had!

    I like the keyboard's great look. It looks very thin. I can put it in a small place.

    If Apple Brewed Lager....

    it would probably be the best in the world! This keyboard is superb in design, function and use. Complements the aluminium clad iMac, looks great on the desk and is just the BEST keyboard I have ever used!

    I have had no problems with function keys, or use in any other way. The keystrokes are firm and positive, the keyboard is quiet in operation. The two USB ports are very useful when using pen drives or connecting cameras etc.

    All in all a superb product, fully functional with the usual high Mac build quality. Highly recommended.

    Awesome

    Absolutely love this keyboard, I'm so used to using the function keys assigned on my MacBook Pro, but I'm getting used to the new layout.

    One thing I don't understand is why Apple had to make the USB extension cord exclusive for the keyboard - I think that's a little ridiculous. I didn't even know it came with the keyboard and when I saw it I thought, "cool, I can extend my usb cable for my iPod" won't work, though. Ah well

    If You Complain You Are Crazy

    I have been using a Mac in the Ad Agency business since the very early 90's. This is the best keyboard ever imagined. If you complain about this keyboard then you must be a previous PC user and only need a computer to do spread sheets. I hooked this up to my G5 and the feel of it is unreal. No more pushing a key down about a 1/4 of an inch and sometimes having a sticky feeling to them. I can't say enough about this keyboard and I have only had it hooked up for 5 minutes

    GREAT

    I love this thing I don't have a mac but wish I did but I got it for my PC anyway. Only the eject and volume controls don't work but oh well, oh and the USB ports won't power a flash drive either.

    Come a long way

    we've come a long way from the old typewriter keys. This thing is sweet. I wonder how many of us will have used our iphone rebates to get this thing. Already seen other posts to that effect. Anyway it's really a lovely and feels wonderful to type with. this review would've been a lot shorter but it's so nice to type on. Still working out how to map the F keys the way i like, but luckily they have lot of options. Took me a sec to find the fn key which is in the home end page up page down cluster.

    people like to thank steve but i say thanks to the apple engineers
    now that you've finished this keyboard you can go home and make love to your husbands and wives - ha - iphone 2.0 is more like it.

    Fantastic

    I wanted one of these as soon as they came out but couldn't really justify the expense. My daughter then broke the old keyboard so that sorted that problem out!

    The keyboard is superb, maybe not perfect for the touch typists but for me it's excellent and not only does it look great it is great to use, good action and quiet. A 5 out of 5 from me.

    Slick / possible drawbacks

    Very nice design, pleasant soft touch keys. Possible surface finish scratch problem (like Power Mac case). Good price. Overall pleased.

    Awesome keyboard!

    Sometimes Apple tries to reinvent things and just mucks them up (ahem, Mighty Mouse). This new keyboard is so slick, so futuristic - I can't say enough good things about it. It makes typing so much faster and there is hardly any noise associated with it. I also like the recessed USB ports. It has a nice solid feel and is heavy enough to sit on the desk and not slide around. There are also little rubber (or silicon) feet that help in this regard as well. Again, kudos for Apple for adding their design prowess to something as mundane as the keyboard.

    Amazing improvement!!

    Love the keyboard. Got it with my iPhone rebate and haven't had a better keyboard in my life. It is effortless to type anything from a quick message to a longer passage. Plus, the old keyboards did get a bit more dirty, and were trickier to clean. And much more of a hassle. Now, I don't know how I lived with that thing when I have the new one now!

    Bought it... Love it!

    I bought this keyboard to replace the one that came on my iMac. This is the best keyboard I've ever used and I have used many. I would love to purchase one to put on my computer at work!

    A Pleasant and Very Thin Surprise

    I couldn't believe how thin this keyboard was! Works wonderfully-- allows my fingertips to just glide along with no problem.

    Switching from the classic keyboard to this has been interesting, since the keys are flat and softly textured. There are no grooves, so that takes about 30 seconds to get used to.

    The bottom and USB port housing is white plastic, and a USB extender is included! Remember to run Software Update after you plug it in!

    Coolest and easiest keyboard to date.

    Looks Great, just a few things to keep in mind, however

    The look is absolutely sexy, to say the least. I love it. The only problem I really have is that the USB ports on the sides of the keyboard are LOW-POWER USB ports, so don't try to connect your iPod or something that requires a lot of power (something that may charge through the USB in addition to connecting to the computer via USB, because it just won't work. You still need to use your external usb hub or usb port on your computer. Also, I am still trying to figure out how to use the buttons on the function keys to control, pause/play, play next track. I tried holding down the function key and pressing it, as well a bunch of other combinations, but I haven't figured it out. I'm sure it's not too complicated, but I thought it would have been easy enough not to do research before using those buttons. Overall, the keyboard is astonishing, and much better than the wireless, in my opinion, because of the # pad and arrow keys on the right which are missing from the wireless.
    Thanks Apple for another good job!

    EaSy tO KeEp cLeAn

    I invested in this keyboard for my classic white iMAC. It looks nicer on the older ones than it does for the newer. Not to mention its easier to keep clean...the former keyboards got nasty quick. As far as funtionality goes... sadly i can't make a creditable comment. I must admit i bought for aesthetics...but it is ergonomically smoother.
