    2 issues

    The keyboard is decent, but I have 2 issues with it. First, why is there no black option? My chrome with white keys keyboard looks years old now, and I've only had it about 6 months. Second, there needs to be an ergonomic version. The MS keyboard I used with my PC was much more comfortable and never looked dirty.

    On the plus side, the keyboard works perfectly and I like having the USB ports built in to it.

    Excellent for Macbooks

    It has a "Delete" key for when backspace just isn't "right" enough :)

    Nifty Keyboard

    Got this with my new 2.0MHz/500Gig/4Gig Mac Mini and I'm loving it! Might pick up another one for my PC, yes I said PC :)

    Handsome but USB connection/detection problems

    This handsome keyboard has two usb ports. Sounds convenient, but if you keep a wired mouse plugged into the keyboard's usb port-- which is the device you are most likely to leave connected-- neither the keyboard nor mouse are detected when you plug in the keyboard. Therefore every time I re-attach the keyboard, I must first detach the mouse, attach the keyboard, and reattach the mouse. Perhaps this is the fault of my PowerBook G4, and its ports, but this now seems an unanticipated flaw with the keyboard.

    Happy with it

    I've been using the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad for nearly a year.

    I don't have any complaints. The 'feel' of it is different from other keyboards I've used. This is something with which I've grown quite comfortable. I actually much prefer it to others now.

    Would recommend this product to any interested party.

    Best keyboard ever!

    I just received this in the mail today for my windows pc. It is the best keyboard ever! It's small, comfortable, and it works great. This is by far the best keyboard anyone could ever buy!

    My only complaint though is that the bottom of the keyboard get full of dust and dirt very easily because of the material it's made out of.

    The best keyboard you'll EVER use!

    When i purchased this keyboard, i thought I'd like it because i have a older macbook Pro. (purchased just before the current ones came out...man, was i annoyed) To me, it seemed the feel would be similar, and it is. I'd say the new keyboard has a little more spring to the keys though, they feel a little more firm, and i think that's a benefit. It took me a little while to get used to the key placements, since there are small spaces between the keys. I've only had it for a day or so, and its already made me regret not buying it sooner. Also note, if you plan to use a wrist pad or anything which will elevate your hands off the surface the keyboard rests on, be careful, i learned the hard way. This is designed to be comfortable on a desk, thus the thin shape, so if you're using it in a keyboard tray with a wrist rest, be prepared to either modify the tray, or use a book. My one complaint is the space bar. to me it feels a little soft. It doesn't have quite the spring and resistance the other keys do. It doesn't really change anything for ME, but if you let your thumbs rest on the space bar, you're going to overwork office's auto correct to no end. :)
    I would also like to mention the the weight of the keyboard. In every other review its labeled as "sturdy". I would most defiantly agree. The bottom of the keyboard IS plastic, but it feels like its 1/8 of an inch think, it feels solid, rather than a piece of plastic with a thin piece of aluminum over it should. Its a beautiful design.
    You know, if i was using a PC for some ungodly reason, i'd still buy this keyboard. That's how good it is.
    Just remember, don't get discouraged jsut because it feels funny for day or two, you'll get used to it.

    Better than keyboards costing twice as much

    No keyboard can totally meet the needs of every user, but this one comes close. We have keyboards in our office that cost over $200 that are inferior. The only complaint I have is that moving from my Macbook Pro (silver Keyboard) to this one takes a period of adjustment with a lot of errors. The difference in key shape and spacing is very noticeable.

    I notice some complaints here about this keyboard failing to provide sufficient power for some USB devices. I would like to point out that no keyboard will produce more power than the source to which it is connected. If you connect this keyboard to a low power source, you can not expect it to power a high power device.

    BOO

    this is a nice keyboard, lovely ... doesnt ever get that 'you need a hazmat suit to sit there' look to it ..

We had to schlep our iMac into the Apple Store after a very competent phone tech walked us thru several ejection processes none of which worked ... the genuis at the Apple Store on 5th Ave in NYC said 'you have the wrong keyboard, this one wont eject stuck DVD/CDs' ...HELLO .. Apple doesnt sell the 'old' ones anymore ... so Apple .. why doesnt this keyboard eject stuck DVDs??????????

    well worth it

    Bought this about 3 weeks ago. I'm a PhD student so I type a LOT. Had a hard time deciding if I could compromise on the wireless and keep the num pad. In the end since the keyboard never leaves the desk I don't miss it. Turns out a wireless mouse to me is key, but a wired keyboard is fine. Using the laptop style keys has been fantastic. My typing is now faster and much quieter. The full size keyboard is a must for me...page up, page down, fwd & back delete, and nbr entry is necessary for me. Great keyboard, great quality, and USB ports to boot. Work the $. Giving it 4 stars only because I think Apple could have a wireless version of this but for some reason chooses not to. That would be a 5-star keyboard, to me.

    you may have problems with the usb because...

    It clearly states on the mac website, when looking at a new mac keyboard, that the usb ports will not support iPods or other attachments that require more power than a flash drive unless hooked up to an aluminum iMac

    So before writing a review, do your research.

    Great Keyboard

    This is a keyboard that I would recommend to any Apple user. It's light, stylish, and is comfortable. I bought my keyboard yesterday and it works well especially when I'm gaming.

    Apple gets two thumbs up for this product!!!

    Great Invention

    Thought I was buying this keyboard because I needed a numeric keypad for my new 17" MacBook Pro. The price was less than $20 more than a plain numeric keypad that didn't even do the job correctly. Took it back and bought this keyboard. I love it! I had no idea how convenient it would be for not just typing numerics, but sitting with my feet propped up, this keyboard on my lap typing away . It is incredibly light and easy to use. The touch is light and easy. It is worth every penny. I give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

    Great keyboard with great design features

    I find this a wonderful upgrade from the older style keyboards (clear body w/white keys). The other was find as well, but I always hated the fact, with any keyboard, that dirt, dust, crumbs, etc would always find their way down under the keys and the hassle of tearing the keyboard apart to clean it, etc. was a real pain and it left the keyboard unsightly, in general.

    This keyboard does away with that issue. It is thin and the clearance between body and keys is very small, so it definitely minimizes small particles from falling into the body. Easy to clean with just a few wipes of a damp cleaning cloth, too.

    Typing on the new design for some reason, rather it be the height change, etc. took a few days to stop making typing errors, but once I got used to it, it's fine and types very smoothly. I like the numeric keypad on the right side, but have noticed that they have removed that on the new keyboards. I hope they continue to offer the extended version for those that want/need that numeric ability.

    Overall, I love the design and overall user-friendliness of this keyboard and will be using it for a long time coming.

    Good keyboard, takes some time getting use to

    This is a great keyboard. I spend at least 10 -12 hours a day typing on this keyboard and I don't have many problems with it. The only problems that I have with the keyboard is that the number pad is slightly different that the keypad on the standard PC keyboard, but I know that I will get use to that and it is WELL worth the slightest bit of "trouble" (if I would even go that far to call it that) that it has caused.
    As to the issues with the height of the keyboard-i haven't had any trouble with that as I simply use a Keyboard drawer that allows me to adjust the height of my keyboard. I have been using this for years (even before this keyboard) so it was never an issue.

    Superb!

    There aren't many products that earn a five star rating from me. But this keyboard is the exception. For me it has excellent feel which has improved my typing. Its low profile prevents my wrists from getting sore. And it's super easy to keep clean. I can understand how people with long finger nails may have difficulty with it, but my nails are trimmed short, so that's not an issue.

    Back to my old keyboard

    I find it extremely uncomfortable to use. It is 1 inch lower at the top than my old one. In less than 24 hours I've gone back.

    I wanted to give it no stars, but the system won't let me.
