    A Pleasant and Very Thin Surprise

    I couldn't believe how thin this keyboard was! Works wonderfully-- allows my fingertips to just glide along with no problem.

    Switching from the classic keyboard to this has been interesting, since the keys are flat and softly textured. There are no grooves, so that takes about 30 seconds to get used to.

    The bottom and USB port housing is white plastic, and a USB extender is included! Remember to run Software Update after you plug it in!

    Coolest and easiest keyboard to date.

    Looks Great, just a few things to keep in mind, however

    The look is absolutely sexy, to say the least. I love it. The only problem I really have is that the USB ports on the sides of the keyboard are LOW-POWER USB ports, so don't try to connect your iPod or something that requires a lot of power (something that may charge through the USB in addition to connecting to the computer via USB, because it just won't work. You still need to use your external usb hub or usb port on your computer. Also, I am still trying to figure out how to use the buttons on the function keys to control, pause/play, play next track. I tried holding down the function key and pressing it, as well a bunch of other combinations, but I haven't figured it out. I'm sure it's not too complicated, but I thought it would have been easy enough not to do research before using those buttons. Overall, the keyboard is astonishing, and much better than the wireless, in my opinion, because of the # pad and arrow keys on the right which are missing from the wireless.
    Thanks Apple for another good job!

    I invested in this keyboard for my classic white iMAC. It looks nicer on the older ones than it does for the newer. Not to mention its easier to keep clean...the former keyboards got nasty quick. As far as funtionality goes... sadly i can't make a creditable comment. I must admit i bought for aesthetics...but it is ergonomically smoother.

    Like thinking instead of pounding.

    At last, actual touch typing instead of the mechanical, half-inch-stroke Whack-A-Key that has been such a burthen when away from our laptops.

    Great New Keyboard! Apple made a good one!

    I got this for my MacBook Pro. It works great. There is a software update which enables all the functions to work so you don't need to use the MBP's keyboard.

    All devices that I have tried via USB work with this item. Currently, I have a 1TB external connected through the USB in ther keyboard. Works great!

    J Key Quit Working

    I used this keyboard for about 3 weeks and then suddenly the J key quit working. Everything else worked fine.Took the key apart and found nothing. Broke the key putting it back together. Hate mailing low cost items back. So I will go to local store and buy another one. This keyboard is worth $100.00 and not $50.00 anyway as far as I'm concerned. Great job on this keyboard Apple. Except for J key, this board is awesome.

    Awesome Keyboard!!

    This keyboard feels great! I bought one of the "old Apple keyboards" because my poor MacBook Pro internal keyboard died (long story) which served it's purpose but never helped me reclaim the mobility I desire.

    Enter the new, sleek and sexy aluminum keyboard.
    It's really light, very portable, and the keys have a great tactile feedback, and boy is it quiet. Now I can roam about the house without the clunkiness of the old keyboard and have a clean workspace.

    It's pretty expensive currently (9/15/07) at $50.00, which may be a turnoff to some but I highly recommend it for it's great design, feel, and mobility.

    Sweet... works on my powerbook & old Dell w/win 2000!

    Amazing keyboard!

    Does have a learning curve, more like a large laptop type feel, but clean & good... and might be the new standard.

    About a 1/2 inch shorter than old Apple wireless/standard keyboard in size.

    But keys & spacing not mushed together. And I have large hands.

    I bought it... the wired version, because another reviewer said that it would work in windows. I have to keep a Dell 2000 & Toshiba XP going for some work... and this keyboard will be switched out when the wireless version with keypad comes out! It works no problem on Windows 2000 & XP.

    I was so sick & tired of cleaning my old open face apple keyboard! And felt guilty using canned air, too try to keep it clean.

    Totally worth it!

    Now if Apple will make the same thing wireless... with number-pad (some of us have to play with them daily) I'd buy another one in a second!!!

    Finally A Usable Keyboard!

    I had multiple strokes a couple of years back and it has been very difficult to type with a regular keyboard with raised keys. Apple's new slimline keyboard lets me type like I used to be able to. Thanks Apple!

    New Apple Keyboard

    Best computer keyboard I've ever used! Fast to type on, easy to clean, hefty and stays "put" and it's gorgeous.

    If only Apple's mice were this well designed.

    I gotta admit, I was a little skeptical to begin with, given the price tag for this jewel, but I'm seriously considering just buying one for my work Mac as well just so that I can have a great experience there too.

    Whoever said it in a review is right, you just touch these keys. No effort is needed to use this keyboard, just the lightest touch. It makes me want to write more, type more, keep using it. When has a keyboard ever given you that feeling?

    If only Apple would pay as much attention to their mice devices. The Mighty Mouse now looks so out of place next to this pristine wonder. Maybe they'll soon come out with a new wireless Mighty Mouse that matches and is as much of a breeze to use ... and that lets me right-click easily.

    Best keyboard

    I have used scores of keyboards over the past 25 years. The old plastic white Apple keyboards were the worst that I have ever used -- I hated them. This keyboard is the absolute best I have ever used! It's solid, tight, and enables very fast typing with little wasted motion.

    Great keyboard!

    Loved it from day one. It did take me a while to figure out that I had to download software to use it with my new Mac Mini. Once this was done, I love the feel of the keys and it's sleek design. Great product and worth it.

    One word - PERFECT!

    Finally a keyboard whose keys respond without a long distance stroke path - you touch the keys rather then having D E P R E S S them. Brings new meaning to "touch typing". I LOVE this keyboard!!

    And forget about gunk getting down into the keyboard and impairing your keyclicks - or like with that nasty see-through keyboard, seeing everything that and fallen inside and you couldn't get out!. The closed nature of the keyboard is wonderful.

    Don't the let thinness fool you. This is one heavy weight, sturdy, hardworking keyboard.

    Apple Keyboard

    Hands down the best keyboard I have ever used. My typing speed has improved dramatically. You can also eat your danish in the morning without worrying about the crumbs falling down between the keys.

    just bought the keyboard and was a little skepitcal when buying it, not sure if I would hate it. I love the macbook keyboard so I thought I would probably love it. Got home, unwrapped and I must say it is AWESOME! Even feels like I'm typing faster (and I type really really fast already). Good job apple, keep up the good work.

    LOVE this keyboard!!!

    Just received the new slim full length keyboard to replace my apple bluetooth one. I love the way the keys feel, the fact that there is no open voids for dirt, dust and food to fall in and that it has 2 USB ports where the BT one didn't have any.

    The new key placements for volume and eject etc take a few min to get used to but in the end, it all makes sense and is rather flawless!

    A++ so far!!!
