    Almost Love the Design

    I almost will give this a 5. However, WHY did you take off the Apple on the Command Key? That is a staple. Can we get an Apple icon sticker to put on it? That would give it a 5 in my book.

    Ergonomic?

    I like my new keyboard, but I'm wondering what effect this has on ergonomics and the future health of my wrists - anyone else have any worries?

    Solid product, minor faults

    Excellent keyboard, almost identical in keyboard response as the keyboard on the Macbook. This keyboard is excellent for those that prefer a scissor-type response (laptop equivalent keyboard mechanism). The two problems of this keyboard: deep USB ports, hard to access unless you lift the keyboard up; keyboard rubber padding is not enough to prevent the keyboard from sliding around but does not happen if used properly. This keyboard would be perfectly priced at 10$ less.

    Ergonomics

    I liked the keyboard fine, but after a few weeks began having trouble with my right shoulder. I think the reason is that this keyboard is longer than my old one and I have to stretch my arm out to the side to move the mouse. If you are concerned about ergonomics, this is something to take into consideration.

    Great feel... but gets dirty!

    I love the feel of this new keyboard! I am a total gamer and i would recommend this to anyone looking for a great feel while gaming. BUT I think that the white keys get dirty too fast. I have had mine for about 2 months now and i have to clean it at least once a week so I don't look homeless... but other than that i love it!

    question re: speaker buttons on keyboard

    when I try to adjust the speaker buttons. the mute one brings up display of weather. The volume button to increase sound brings eliminates the page.. the volume to reduce the sound gives me split screen. Has anyone had this problem? I just got the keyboard yesterday.

    Apple Keyboard

    Aesthetically exceptional! Finished in high quality, handsome materials incorporating smooth rounded corners. Feel good, responsive keys.Operational quietness pleasing-space bar the only 'key' emitting any sound. Special function keys are helpful as Apple has chosen appropriate items to highlight. I would have accorded 5 stars, however, as reported in another post, the 'caps lock' key is a wee bit dysfunctional.....yes, I know, aren't we all!!!

    This kb, simply put, is just another thing that makes me remember why I fell in luvvv with APPLE in the first place!!! APPLE ROCKS-yes, indeed-ROCK ON!!

    Nice Keyboard

    I just got this new keyboard to work with my MacBook and monitor. When I got the box and it said "made in China", I was a bit worried. I kinda vowed not to buy stuff made in China since I have not been impressed. However, this keyboard has been great. It feels well built, looks nice and if you can type.. you can fly on this keyboard.

    USB2 port no good for memory stick

    Beautifully designed keyboard and a delight to use but... I bought it expecting that because it was USB2 (my old Apple keyboard was USB1) I could plug my memory stick into it. No such luck - I received a low poor warning.

    Volume keys not working. Here's why

    This KeyBoard is very sleek and thought out well. Incase anybody has ready four or 5 reviews down someone is complaining that their volume keys do not work. It is because your mac comes set up with shorts already set on the F12 and F11 key..i think they are show desk top and show dashboard. but all you have to is unset the shortcut keys, and your all set.

    I love this keyboard!!!

    This keyboard is awesome and quiet too, it even works on my vista. I wasn't sure if I should buy it at first because I was going to use it on a PC but it works just fine. Since it's a Mac keyboard some keys won't work on a PC but as long as the letters and numbers work there's nothing to be afraid of. For those that like a laptop type keyboard I recommend this for either a Mac or PC.

    Very Thin, Love it!

    The new Apple Keyboard is by far the best keyboard I have EVER used!! It make typing easier, and more fun. The only complaint I have with this keyboard is for some reason I can't get the OPTION key to work when rebooting my mac so I could pick to boot into Windows. As for the no OPTION problem, well just use System Preferences to boot into selected OS or CD/DVD.

    However maybe with Leopard it will be perfected. Other than that though this is the BEST keyboard I have seen.

    Keyboard is addicting

    The keys are addicting. At first, I thought it was a good keyboard. But you don't want to go back to another keyboard.

    Function keys are a bit too small. That's a quibble.

    The markers on the F and J don't do it for me.

    On the whole, the new iTunes function keys are not for me.

    No ergonomic curving. A slight curve is achievable.

    If you can afford it, this keyboard is good.

    Nice keyboard, sexy looks

    Like most people before me, I really like the feel of this keyboard. As a longtime user of the old Mac keyboards and a professional designer, though, I feel like they kind of blew the function key design. By doubling up the function of the F7 to F12 keys, they made for a frustrating experience for folks who use keyboard shortcuts and modifier sets in professional applications. I would love to have the preferences for the keyboard be non - global - meaning that when I'm in an application like Photoshop or Flash, the keyboard reverts to software functionality, but when in the finder or other Apple apps, it goes to hardware.

    A great keyboard

    If you find yourself liking typing on a laptop, you will love this keyboard. Fast response. Light touch. You might feel weird for a while but I believe this is a nicely designed keyboard. I gave 4 starts because I can see some people who don't like a laptop keyboard not liking this one.

    Class all by itself

    First of all, nothing deserves 5 stars because there is no such thing as ultimate perfection, but this darn thing is close. The main complaint you'll read about this keyboard is the difficulty with typing. I really think those reviews were probably written prematurely. I waited a while and now that my wife and I have gotten used to the soft touch and ease with which the keys depress, we're typing like lightening. Before writing a review, give yourself the opportunity to catch up to this keyboard's capabilities. I'm sure you'll agree that this is an amazing keyboard.

    Just as in design, where form should always follow function, this review was constructed in a similar way. This keyboard is a beautiful piece of art. I'm concerned for Apple, however, in that they'll probably be stuck with this design until clear touch pad keyboards hit the market. This design can't get much better until the next evolution in functionality.

    Works with PC

    This keyboard works with PC. It is a little different than the typical windows keyboard. The atl and windows keys are switched. The numlock key is a little different but it works fine. There are also seven more function keys. All of these differences don't even matter, because the keyboard so so sweet ans thin. I was able to use my wireless mouse receiver in the usb ports on board, but not other things like a webcam. I love the way this keyboard types, and looks. It is also selling at a competitive price to other keyboards like it. The number pad is a must have.

    Slim and Trim

    I love the new keyboard! Great design and wonderful touch for us none typists. Only wish it could have been angled a bit more...or had an option to adjust for personal preference. I also wish the wireless keyboard would have been available in the longer format. I never really liked MAC's compressed options of the shorter keyboard and swore I'd never go back after their last attempt at its design. If you are not typing from across the room and don't mind a cable attached to your monitor...get hooked up to the longer version of the keyboard again! I love it! I'd give it a five if they had made it wireless AND long!
