    If You Complain You Are Crazy

    I have been using a Mac in the Ad Agency business since the very early 90's. This is the best keyboard ever imagined. If you complain about this keyboard then you must be a previous PC user and only need a computer to do spread sheets. I hooked this up to my G5 and the feel of it is unreal. No more pushing a key down about a 1/4 of an inch and sometimes having a sticky feeling to them. I can't say enough about this keyboard and I have only had it hooked up for 5 minutes

    GREAT

    I love this thing I don't have a mac but wish I did but I got it for my PC anyway. Only the eject and volume controls don't work but oh well, oh and the USB ports won't power a flash drive either.

    Come a long way

    we've come a long way from the old typewriter keys. This thing is sweet. I wonder how many of us will have used our iphone rebates to get this thing. Already seen other posts to that effect. Anyway it's really a lovely and feels wonderful to type with. this review would've been a lot shorter but it's so nice to type on. Still working out how to map the F keys the way i like, but luckily they have lot of options. Took me a sec to find the fn key which is in the home end page up page down cluster.

    people like to thank steve but i say thanks to the apple engineers
    now that you've finished this keyboard you can go home and make love to your husbands and wives - ha - iphone 2.0 is more like it.

    Awesome keyboard!

    Sometimes Apple tries to reinvent things and just mucks them up (ahem, Mighty Mouse). This new keyboard is so slick, so futuristic - I can't say enough good things about it. It makes typing so much faster and there is hardly any noise associated with it. I also like the recessed USB ports. It has a nice solid feel and is heavy enough to sit on the desk and not slide around. There are also little rubber (or silicon) feet that help in this regard as well. Again, kudos for Apple for adding their design prowess to something as mundane as the keyboard.

    Amazing improvement!!

    Love the keyboard. Got it with my iPhone rebate and haven't had a better keyboard in my life. It is effortless to type anything from a quick message to a longer passage. Plus, the old keyboards did get a bit more dirty, and were trickier to clean. And much more of a hassle. Now, I don't know how I lived with that thing when I have the new one now!

    Bought it... Love it!

    I bought this keyboard to replace the one that came on my iMac. This is the best keyboard I've ever used and I have used many. I would love to purchase one to put on my computer at work!

    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!

    EaSy tO KeEp cLeAn

    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.

    Absolutely Beautiful

    As a graphic artist I need to type alot and use key commmands endlessly. This is the fastest and cleanest keyboard to work with. Apple I only have one word for you, Brilliant!

    Great improvement!

    This keyboard has a faster, lighter touch, especially when compared to the original plastic version, which always seemed to jam laterally. It's similar feeling to my PowerBook keyboard, which I really like. The one "missing" feature: Apple should have sculpted the keys a bit more. These are flat feeling and my finger tips would like a bit more landing zone. Otherwise, we're very pleased!

    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.
