    Makes my fingers move faster...

    I just bought the new imac and this keyboard works great! It not only looks very sleek like others are saying but it really feels like I'm typing faster while using it. My fingers are like lighting. I'm a graphic designer and on this thing like 8 to 10 hours a day so I have alot of hours logged and I'm happy with this one. No problems whatsoever.:)

    Another Great Product - A+

    Apple again has come up with a great product. This keyboard works great. The USB hub works with all of my devices ( No idea why people say it doesnt?) I cant wait till the wireless version comes out.. I liked this keyboard so much I purchased 3 of them to replace my regular keyboard for my Windows Desktops..

    Crummy responce to space bar strikes

    The keyboard is very nice in appearance but the fact that you have to hit the space bar perfectly every time drives me to distraction. I will probably return the keyboard.

    Sorry Apple, please try again.

    Sorry but I think this keyboard is woefully bad. I'm returning it to the Apple Store today. I have 6 Macs in the house and love Apple products, but sometimes Apple designs things that are sexy and flashy but don't work well. Witness the "hockey puck" mouse. Ditto on the keyboard this one replaces. For those of us that like a responsive keyboard with a solid touch, this keyboard doesn't cut it at all. Typing on this keyboard is like typing on a laptop keyboard. Some people like that mushy feel; I don't. I'm reverting to my Matias keyboard with its more substantial, more solid, and springier feel. Sorry folks. I give this keyboard one star at best, and that's only because it looks so different.

    Great keyboard

    Being a guitar teacher I use iTunes and keyboard shortcuts all day. The new keyboard is fantastic to use it's small and sleek and easy to keep clean. A must for anyone using a computer all day.It reminds me of my Macbook keyboard.As always Apple is an innovator!

    Great Product

    I've had my keyboard for just under a week and it's a joy to use. Unlike what other users have reported my keyboard Function keys (F3 etc) all work fine and open the appropriate things - maybe you guys have dud keyboards and should take them back.

    I just can't stop typing ...

    okay, i hate typing. I can't stand it. I just can't believe how much I like this keyboard. It is very satisfying. It is just perfect. You really feel like you are accomplishing something when you press the keys. They new function keys are great too -- dashboard, etc. I love this keyboard.

    The Greatest, Sexiest and Most Silent...

    Need I say more?

    The things is beautiful, thin and clean. I had the last version of the Mac wireless keyboard and the thing held garbage like a trash can. This thing has no nooks and crannies, just sleek, smooth surface. Its so silent when you type, make those plastic buttons of the last version look like dinosaurs.

    Trust me, I don't work for Apple at all... but I'd support a great product. This keyboard is the BOMB!

    Beautiful keyboard, but

    with what seem to be a couple of bugs.

    First, just let me contribute to the applause regarding this keyboard - it is beautiful, amazingly sleek and wonderful to write on. I just love it.

    However, like a couple of others I have discovered that there is something strange regarding the function keys (F1 and so on). The F3 and F4 does not work according to symbols on them (Expose All windows and Open Dashboard), while the other keys with symbols on them work as indicated by their symbols.
    Instead, Expose All windows and Open Dashboard are still under F9 and F12, but has to be released with the "fn" key.

    And unless I check "Use all F1,F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" (System preferences - Keyboard & Mouse - Keyboard), a lot of the other shortcuts stop working. But by checking this option, the "fn" key has to be pushed to adjust the volume on the F11-F12 keys and so on. Then again, the Expose, Dashboard and other keys work as they did on the old keyboard...

    Something is not working as it should... :-)

    Rating: 5 stars for the keyboard, 3 stars for what seems to be a driver/software problem

    PS: Yes, I have installed the update for this keyboard.

    iMac 2,1 ghz G5, 1,5 gb ram, OS X 10.4.10

    Fabulous, an absolute joy to use

    This is the best keyboard I've ever used. A bit like the MacBook keyboard but more positive in use and the keys feel really solid and responsive. It's supermodel sized (wafer thin and no excess around the sides of the keyboard), quiet and is a full keyboard with a proper numeric keypad and cursor key cluster.

    The one I'm typing on is connected to a MacBook Pro and I'm just about to go and order 2 more, one to keep at work to save me carrying this one around and another for my Mac Mini. It's just a shame the wireless version doesn't have all the keys otherwise I'd be ordering one of those too!

    As for the comments about missing anti slip pads, the one that arrived here today has 4 rubber feet underneath and I haven't had a problem at all with it slipping around on my laminated desk here. All the keys work as expected as well.

    Apple, Well done on a genius keyboard, I'm gonna miss it when I'm travelling with just the MacBook pro.

    Love it!!!

    This is a keyboard that people will either love it or hate it. To me, this is the best desktop keyboard I've ever used because it's so compact and the keys feels so nice. I know a lot of others prefer the older types because it has a better feel than this one, but this is my review and I love it so I'm going to give it 5 stars. ^^V

    Walking on water for your fingers delight!!!

    The new Apple keyboard is the best input device design in the world. With keystrokes as smooth as wind over your skin and just as pleasing to the eye as the finger. A definite five star product!!!

    Mine works with iPod !!!

    Interesting reading that others have had poor results with iPod and other higher power-required USB devices. So far, I've been able to use anything that I plugged into the keyboard, including my iPod Video. Not sure why others are having an issue.

    Other than that, the keyboard is terrific. I thought I wouldn't like it when I first saw it. It did take a while to get used to, but now I enjoy its tactile feel, its slim design and solid construction. Well done.

    Works well with PC

    I got this keyboard because I loved the light feeling of a laptop keyboard with a numpad. This keyboard delivers that very well. It works just fine with windows xp except for the multimedia buttons. As for the USB ports it is no different than what everyone else has experienced. I can use it to transfer files from my USB keys but not for my Ipod or anything else that requires power. If you are looking for a slim keyboard with a very light touch this is a great option.

    MOMA Material!

    This keyboard is simply put, the sexiest piece of computer gear I've ever seen and owned! It is, without a doubt, a masterpiece of indusrial art and deserves its own pedestal in the halls of MOMA! The keys are solid and have just the right amount of tactility and resistance. Aesthetics and solid performance combined! My only wish is that Apple would also release a software update for Windows users; so we too could use all of the keyboard's function keys and other special features. Best $49.00 I've spent for a long time! Well deserved kudos to Apple!

    Ace Keyboard!

    This keyboard is fantastic, its low profile makes it a pleasure to use.

    I have a Macbook and I love the keyboard, I bought the new keyboard to go with my 24" iMac (white chassis) and it compliments the imac very well.

    On a side note, the USB ports work well but only with mice or low powered devices. Works perfect with self powered devices like external HDD's etc.

    Simply...

    ...the best keyboard ever made!

    Why four Stars? Because there is a localization bug that make impossible for users with foreign language System setting (non-english) to access the Keyboard Shortcut Preference Pane.

    But there's a workaround: Set your System language (System Preferences/International) to "English", log out and in again and you'll get access to the Keyboard Shortcut Preference Pane. Make your setting, replace the System language to yours, log out and in again, et voilà!

    Keyboard software update 1.1 doesn't correct the bug. Will see with 1.2!

    Besides all this, it's the best keyboard touch I ever felt, well done Apple.

    Huge improvement! No more crumb catcher!

    I love the low profile and the feel of the keys - much better on my hands. However, the best part is the new design that eliminates the clear case on the bottom - the one that catches all the debris. This one will be much easier to clean.

    Excellent Keyboard, superior to all other market keyboards!

    This keyboard is excellent, and the usb ports are no problem, I run a usb mighty mouse from one and transfer songs to my 80gb video ipod from the other. The keyboard is made from titanium and aluminum which makes it very strong unlike plastic logitech and microsoft keyboards that bend and scweak when you type. The keyboard is very powerful in a small and sleek size, I type at least twice as fast and its several times more comofortable than the old Apple keyboards. Owell I brought several of these for my mac pro and vista PCs. It's amazing.
