    great keyboard. works with vista!

    this keyboard is great. quiet and crisp to type on. i use it with windows vista and it works perfectly except for the keys made for apple computers such as the brightness settings and the volume controls. at first i thought i might have gotten a broken keyboard because the caps lock button didn't 'work' but what it turns out to be is that apple implemented a mistake-proof concept into the keyboard. you have to press the caps lock key for slightly longer before it is activated. so, according to apple: "The Caps Lock function has been modified to reduce accidental activation. The key must now be held down slightly longer in order to activate the Caps Lock function." not a big problem though....actually quite nice so that yOU DONT END UP WITH A SENTENCE LIKE THIS. yOU KNOW HOW ANNOYING THAT CAN BE.

    Macbook + Numpad

    This keyboard is really fast especially if you're used to the macbooks. The addition of the keypad was what made me buy this one as opposed to the wireless but the two USB ports more than makes up for it.
    Don't let the price tag make you hesitate. You always get what you pay for which is one of the main reasons of getting a mac anyways. Great buy.

    Perfect, Compact, And Comfortable!

    I bought this keyboard from Best Buy and its great! I don't know what everyone else is complaining about when it shakes or whatever. The keys are very comfortable that I'm not used to my windows keyboard anymore, so I plug it in even to a windows laptop. I think it was worth it. Also what is great is, that there are no gaps so crumbs can't get in the keyboard. One small thing I don't like, its that since its white, they keys sometimes get dirty, but i clean them with some alcohol wipes. Lastly its good to carry around and it pretty light, so it is good for travel, even though I don't travel much anywhere besides around my apartment.

    Defiantly worth it, so go at and buy it! It also compatible with window, but not fully of course.

    I Love This Keyboard!

    This is perhaps the best keyboard I have used yet. It is smooth, quiet and easy to type on.

    I have not had a problem with the USB ports. It might say there is not enough power to link your iPod or other components, but I have been able to sync using the keyboard ports without a problem.

    What I like most about this keyboard is just how easy it is on the fingers as well as how simple and sleek it is. It makes typing just that much more enjoyable.

    So much improved!

    3 times faster than the previous transparent plastic keyboard, no more dust jamming. Also compare to my 12" Powerbook keyboard it is also improved by each individual key pad which, makes typing more accurate.

    Best keyboard I've ever owned

    I've used hundreds, maybe thousands of keyboards over the last 20 years. This one is by far the best I have ever encountered.

    It's reliable, attractive, sleek, low profile, and uses scissor-switch keys (like laptops).

    I have hundreds of customers that use them, and I've never seen one fail (yet!).

    5 stars.

    A Great Look

    This keyboard is quite solid and very stylish. I want to point out that it does work with a PC. I have not been able to use the music control buttons and some other mac functions but everything you need for the PC works fine. I'm not sure if it's the same on an apple but the 2 USB ports are not good for much. I get a "power exceeded" error if I try to sync my iphone using one. They may just be meant for a mouse though.

    Also, the Apple Store ships super fast! I was however, surprised they packed this little keyboard in a big 12" x 24" box, but at least it's not damaged.

    All and all, it saves space, looks fantastic, and does not feel cheap at all.

    Great keyboard!

    I love this new keyboard! I would have purchased a wireless one, but the new wireless keyboard has no 10-key.

    Great Keyboard!! Five Stars.

    This is by far the best keyboard i've ever owned. Between the affordability, the crisp, clean keystroke, the amazing look of it and the extra buttons, it makes for a fantastic experience. The real highlights of this keyboard (for me anyways,) are the comfort, it truly is extremely comfortable, and quite easy to use. As well as the extra keys, there's one for dashboard, there's one for exposé, and some for brightness and volume. And finally, there's the extra features. For instance, to make this character (é)all you ahve to do is press option + e. So simple. it's really quite intuitive, apple thinks ahead and makes the keyboard shortcuts ones that the users would think of automatically.

    All of this leads to a great user experience, and whether you're on a mac or pc, BUY ONE TODAY.

    great keyboard

    I was skeptical after reading all the complaints and considering that I have big hands, wide shoulders and have difficulty getting ergonomically situated. I went to the store and wasn't impressed, though it wasn't at a desk angle. I took the leap anyway and after a very brief period of adjustment, couldn't be happier. The keys are low and easier to use, with much less strain on my hands. It looks great and seems well made. Beats the old dirt collecting tray model by miles. Go ahead, take the leap. You're only regret will be depression when you have to use a "regular' keyboard at work. Form and function come together here, big time.

    Why did I look elsewhere?

    I was looking for a new keyboard for my old Mac. I went to a dozen stores and display-tested a hundred or more keyboards before finally sucking it up and getting the Apple Keyboard. Man, am I glad I did! The keys are the perfect distance from eachother with a good feel, it's easy to see in low-light conditions, and it's heavier than you'd expect from such a thin keyboard so it doesn't slide around when you use it.

    I'm miffed that the F-keys I've used for Exposé and Dashboard moved, but I'll live. Also, I got a KVM switch so I could use my PowerBook at my desk, and of course this is probably the only keyboard on Earth that won't work with it. I blame my discount KVM switch and retain my 5-star rating of this sweet keyboard. Mouse shopping was harder...

    Great keyboard

    I just got this keyboard and really like it a lot. Everybody has their own keyboard preferences, and I happen to like flatter keyboards better - I also tend to like my powerbook's keyboard better than my old Apple desktop keyboards (this should give you an idea of what this keyboard is like it you haven't had a chance to test it). So, while it might no be for everyone (see other comments), function and form really work for me on this one.

    I like this keyboard.

    Its works great and came with my imac when I bought it at the store although I replaced with a wireless one I still use it for when I need the extra keys but for people who aren't obsessed with only have a power cord coming out of the computer than this is a good buy.

    At first I wasn't sure about the new keyboard because it felt entirely different than my old one.
    After a month of using it I can hardly type on my old one! This new keyboard has a super feel and the keys have wonderful sensitivity. My old keyboard required about 1/4 inch of travel to enter data. The new one has far less travel but is not too "touchy".

    I like the following-
    1- low profile
    2- key travel
    3- USB port locations are superior to the old ones being on the rear.
    4- ease of cleaning.

    You'll love it. Really, a big leap in keyboard technology IMHO.
