    One step forward....three steps backwards....

    All the above reviews clearly state all the problems. One thing thats yet to be pointed out is the fact that they changed the size of the top row buttons.....and for what? Seriously!!! All that did was make any key cover or overlay that was previously purchased to fit the first version of the wireless keyboard NOT FIT now!!!! Stupid just freaking stupid. So now I'm suppose to buy another one that fits this just because you felt it was necessary to change the size of the F keys. C'mon Apple

    Love the feel

    I love the feel of the keyboard. I really wished that the Macbook had this keyboard.

    It works great, and it's fantastic that it works as a wired keyboard if you need it to. It even works with a PC using the wired mode! And automatic pairing is amazing.

    The keys feel great!

    I always loved the keys on my Macbook Pro. I told people it was the greatest keyboard that I had ever used. I was disappointed when I bought the wireless keyboard as the keys just didn't have the same feel and they made a lot of noise when typing. While this one still makes a bit of noise, the keys feel much nicer and don't take as much force to use. I really like this keyboard. I haven't had it long enough to comment on battery life or anything, but I'm sure that will be fine too. I'll report back if I find something that I don't like, but for now, I love this keyboard.

    Bad, really bad arrows

    Keyboard is great for extended typing, but it has one big fault: the left and right arrows. Being the same size as the option key, it's very hard to proper positioning the hands without looking it, and you end up touching the left arrow instead of the option key and viceversa. How important/problematic this is? Well, It's very hard to use Xcode with such a problem.

    Great Keyboard!

    I love the feel of this keyboard over the previous versions. Since this version is more horizontal, I've noticed less wrist pain because in feels like I'm typing directly on the desk and I don't need to elevate my wrists. I also love the tactile response of the keys. I felt the older version keys were a bit to springy. It feels like I can type much faster with this new version.

    The perfect keyboard

    Reading the reviews, this new keyboard from Apple seems to bring out strong opinions! I definitely fall into the best-hardware-they've-ever-made camp on this one. It's a superb keyboard: precise, low travel (but enough), a delightful firm feeling to each key press, lightweight & robust enough to chuck it in a bag to use with an iPad, instant to pair, easy to charge – it even has a proper on/off switch… it's the gold standard of keyboards. Using the keyboard on my MacBook Air makes me very sad now – it just feels horrible & spongy in comparison. It makes me want a new Retina MacBook with the similar keyboard… maybe that was Apple's idea all along?

    Its Good - but with a disappointing retrograde feature

    I really like the new slimline Magic Keyboard. It is more ergonomic is design - better for the wrists.
    I also like it that its wireless AND I can charge it - no more batteries.
    However, the BIG disappointment is that its noisy. I loved my previous battery operated wireless apple keyboard particularly because it was so quiet. I am in a shared office and the sound of my typing disturbs my colleagues and especially me.
    Hey Apple - please resolve this problem on your next model.
    Thanks.

    Terrific!

    I purchased this (along with the magic mouse 2) for use with my new MacBook when I want to use a larger screen and I absolutely love it! One of the things I love about my MacBook is the feel of the keys when you type - this keyboard feels very sturdy and does not make a ton of noise (just like my MacBook) - I was a little hesitant to purchase cause I was worried it would not be as good of an experience as typing on my MacBook, but I love it. The fact that I can charge and not have to worry about batteries is a bonus. It's small and light and has the sleek Apple design I love - this and the mouse are so easy/quick to pair and great for travel (and saving space on your desk!) - I definitely recommend!

    Poorly designed!!!

    It needs to be redesigned. Seriously.

    First, it needs to have more tilt.
    Second, keys need to have bolder and clear feeling.
    I can't really feel the keys during typing.

    It's not typing friendly.
    These two problems make mistyping.

    After using few hrs, I went back to the previous one.
    Oldies but goodies!!!

    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

    terrible

    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.
