      Beautiful keyboard, not for everyone...

Let's set aside the looks - they're fantastic. And the anodysed look closely matches my monitors and mac pro case - good job apple! The response takes a very slight getting used to, but once you have it's far easier to type from and completely comfortable during long sessions. This keyboard might still not be a replacement for everyone though: the additional shortkeys at the top may be great for the casual user, but if like me you're a pro apps user, beware that such keys as the volume controls have been stuck onto the F keys. F keys that you may use constantly in Final Cut Pro. You can turn the volume controls off when you use such apps, but personally I find it a little tricky to juggle between the two. Just a word of warning if you are a heavy apps user, otherwise a very solid product that combines great looks with impressive functionality. AB

The keys are bouncy and the travel low so this makes a great kb for those like me that have arthritis which makes depressing keys a pain in the long run. The greater distance between the keys also help as the risk of clicking 2 keys at once is greatly reduced. Now, the powered USB ports: this has to be clarified: if you plug the keyboard directly into your Mac's USB port you'll get powered kb ports. If. like I, plug it at the back of your Apple display, the ports will not have enough power for items such as your iPod, flash drive, printer etc. This aside am still glad I got this kb.

      USB ports really aren't full function

      "And two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity for your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other USB-based electronic devices." The above senten "And two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity for your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other USB-based electronic devices." The above sentence is directly from Apple's advertising material for the new keyboard. Oh, how I wish it were true. I was facing the purchase of a USB hub because I was tired of turning my iMac, unplugging one item, plugging in another. I thought this keyboard would be a great solution. But even my Nano iPod kicks up a low power warning. The keyboard is great aside from the USB function. Great feel, easy access function keys, etc.

      Good Keyboard Until It Stops Working

      I've had my Apple USB Keyboard with Numeric Keypad for 17 months. It worked great until yesterday when, inexplicably, the 'esc, tilde, tab, and caps lock' keys I've had my Apple USB Keyboard with Numeric Keypad for 17 months. It worked great until yesterday when, inexplicably, the 'esc, tilde, tab, and caps lock' keys simultaneously stopped working. My wife has the same keyboard, which I plugged into my MacBook Pro to confirm that my computer was not the source of the problem . . . it wasn't. I tried all of the other tests suggested by online techies to no avail. So, now it appears that I have to go out and buy a new keyboard. I thought Apple products were engineered to last more than 17 months . . . not so, I guess.

      Excellent Keyboard

      Super keyboard, responsive and a pleasure to use. I use it with a MacBook PRO and I can't fault it.
