    Horrible! Not up to Apple standards!

    I started a new job and was super excited to find that I was to use a brand new Mac! Unfortunately, after only a week, I have sudden onset carpel tunnel from the awful angle of this keyboard! Is barely elevates at all, and now my wrists really hurt! And the stupid thing is so new, there are no functional keyboard stands to try to resolve the problem. I am shocked that Apple put their name on something that is so terrible! Make a stand, now please!!!!!! I'm desperate!!!!!!!

    it's so itty bitty

    I love this new keyboard. It's freaking awesome. It's so itty bitty. - I'm a big fella, with big hands. I find it easy to use and typing on this keyboard is strangely organic (for the lack of a better term). It will take a short time to become familiar to the difference from the previous model. Anyways, I like it. I love it. It works.

    Looks good, but hard to touch type on

    The keyboard looks really nice next to the new trackpad, but I had a lot more errors typing with this keyboard than I did with the previous Apple wireless keyboard.
    After comparing them closely, it looks like the tops of the keys of the Magic Keyboard are completely flat. The previous wireless keyboard keys have a slight concavity to them which helps me center my fingers on the keys.
    With the new keyboard, I don't get that centering effect so I tend to lose my place on the keys due to drifting off center from the keys.
    I wound up just putting the keyboard away and going back to the previous wireless keyboard.

    Its just too small!

    Got a fantastic 27" iMac but for some reason Apple think its a good idea to give you a keyboard that is smaller than the average laptop keyboard.

    Has no tilt adjust and the keys are pointlessly small.

    Typical Apple - it looks great but is form over function. Will be buying a proper keyboard today. Avoid this stupid model

    Well I am back using my old desktop keyboard after using this new one that came with my brand new Mac. Its already not working!! 1 week down and my switch to iMac from desktop is turning out to be a disaster. Hopefully I can change the keyboard without having to take the whole iMac back?

    Difficult to use arrows

    I like how the keyboard is flatter than the previous version, but I hate the redesign of the arrow keys. It's very difficult to orient my hands without looking down to the keyboard. The old version had space above the left and right arrows, making it easy to feel that my fingers were in the right place.

    Love it!!

    Bought this and the magic mouse to use them when I connect my macbook pro to my Thunderbolt screen. I am in love with them. The design of both is great, makes them very comfortable. they are small so they don't take much space on my workspace and the battery really lasts long. I have been using them 5 days straight all throughout the day..and I didn't charge them once yet. incredible!!

    Huge Improvement Last Wireless Keyboard.

    I bought my second iMac December 2014 and it came with the previous keyboard version. I decided to "splurge" on this newest model (as well as the new Magic Trackpad 2). I'm not a great typer and have severe arthritis in my hands. The new version is more comfortable for me not having to elevate my hands and the key feel is so much better. Plus, I'm more accurate. Love this new version

    Upgrade Needed

    It's not ideal to bind hardware to software versions, especially when it's not even a new product. This keyboard is basically the same as the older version, but will require you to change your entire operating system to have it work. Now I can't get a new keyboard because I'm not going to upgrade to the lastest OSX. Hardware from Apple has always been backport-friendly. This is a bad product.

    Love It

    Simply put, I love this thing. Its light weight, reliable, responsive, and has an incredible battery. I have had it for 2 months with daily usage with only one charge. its amazing. The only thing that I wish Apple would address would be a carrying case for the keyboard coming with the out-of-box accessories.

    A great replacement to the original keyboard that came with my iMac.

    I purchased this new Magic Keyboard as my current one was getting a little worn. I waited for a few months after it had been released to see what other people were saying about it and after reading many reviews I could not find many bad ones about it so I thought I would give it ago and am very happy and pleased that I did.

    Using this new Magic Keyboard with my iMac has mad typing so much nice and quicker experience. The new design of the keys on the Magic keyboard are so much nice and smoother to type with than the keys on the standard keyboard that came with my iMac.

    The angle of the new Magic Keyboard is far better to and feels more natural when using it.

    I've given this new Magic Keyboard a 4 start rating out of 5, this is manly because when I first got it and was setting it, I ran in to a few problems. The instructions that come with it are very simple to follow which I did but after doing so the keyboard had not correctly connected to my iMac. I tried again and still nothing. In the end I had to contact Apple care who helped me sort out this issues. This was and has been so far the only downside to this product, everything else is perfect and I am very happy and pleased that I purchased it.

    Worth the money.

    I had the previous Magic Keyboard, which was a great product, but this new version is even better. The keys are more accurate and the rechargeable battery option is awesome. I also love how small and lightweight it is. I previously have also used a wired Apple keyboard (the current wired keyboard offered) and I haven't looked back. Because it is so light, you can throw this and the trackpad in your bag and are good to go. Wholly recommend.

    A Perfect Keyboard!!

    I am new to the wide and exciting world of Apple products. I've always had an iPhone but recently made the plunge and purchased a MacBook Pro, Magic Mouse and now Magic Keyboard. I LOVE this keyboard. It's small, lightweight, sleek, sexy and functional! I can't understand why the reviews aren't more positive on here. I've had no connectivity issues and the keyboard works and looks like a dream! Way to go Apple, you gained another customer for life. I would highly recommend this keyboard to anyone!

    It is fairly well designed keyboard.

    I own a macbook pro from 2014 and I feel that the new keyboard works smoothly with my computer. I highly recommend it.

    A Great Keyboard

    I decided to buy one some days before, because my old Macbook pro 13 is too hot for typing. Now I can type quicker using this keyboard. In addition, I found a keyboard cover on amazon which can be used for this new keyboard.

    I love this keyboard

    Reviews are based on everyone's personal experience with new devices and technologies. If they have a bad or good experience, they associate that with the particular product. But as I am writing to you on this Magic Keyboard, I love this keyboard. I was surprised just how small it was. The keyboard I had previously was gigantic and was wired (Ick!). Plus, having a macbook pro complicates the keyboard nicely. Its light and the typing seed is quite fast. Getting used to another keyboard, mouse, or even computer takes some time. But if you hang in there, all 60 seconds, your experience will be positive. However, I fully understand different strokes for different folks. But personal experience has told me that I immediately love this typing device and confirms my faith in Apple, after reading some of the not-so-positive reviews. Thank you and good night.

    Awful keyboard.

    No tilt at all. Like typing on a flat table. Hurts my neck and shoulders after a few minutes typing.

    Good keyboard, bad arrow keys

    The keyboard is fine and the eject key seems pretty useless since basically all macs don't have a place for discs anymore, also I don't like the way the arrow keys are made and it's a little hard to pick up. Now, to the good things. it's a good solid keyboard and I like the multi-device functionality. It does take some time getting used to the key travel and stuff. The ergonomics are a bit scattered though. Basically good solid keyboard.
