    Amazing Keyboard

    This is definitely my favorite keyboard of all time. I've purchased 3 or 4 over the years for my various computers, and it has never disappointed. The keys have the perfect amount of travel, and the widely spaced arrow keys are great for gaming. The USB ports on the side are excellent for a wireless mouse dongle or a speaker. It's also well-built, durable, and looks great. I can't recommend it enough!

    Great Keyboard

    This keyboard has good performance, and I have actually noticed that I type more accurately, and faster. For $49.00, this keyboard is a really good choice.

    Fantastic MacBookPro accessory.

    I've recently set up an office with my 15" MacBookPro as a desktop. This keyboard is an excellent addition, one that preserves all the functionality of the laptop and adds much-needed functionality in navigation and numbers. As a finance guy, the number pad is an absolute must. The "page up/down", "home/end" and "forward delete" keys are a really useful bonus.

    For a keyboard that sits in front of a notebook on a stand, the USB cable is certainly long enough. I suppose I'd like a wireless version like many other reviewers have noted, but the cord actually is long enough to reach me in a slightly reclined position in front of my desk. Actually, what I'd really like is an earphone jack since the cord on the keyboard is so much longer than the cord on my earbuds w/mic.

    The tactile sensation takes no adjustment if you've been typing on the MacBookPro (especially the 15"), and the (unadjustable) angle is quite comfortable after typing on a flat laptop keyboard. I have not had any long-term comfort issues.

    I recommend this keyboard without reservations to MacBookPro owners.

    At last the perfect keyboard.

    I got this keyboard about a week ago, and it is quite possibly the best keyboard ever made. Well, not everyone will agree with me I guess. But if, like me, you're tired of hearing noisy keys, and keys with too long a travel, keys that get stuck over time because of poor plastic components, and keyboards that take a lot of space on your work area, then this one's for you.

    This keyboard takes very little space, is virtually silent, keys feel great without too much travel, and it looks amazing too! The touch can be compared to a laptop computer.

    I am not a pro, nor do I possess a professional typist technique, so I guess people who are used to "full size, standard-typewriter-type" keyboards will have to adjust a little, as the spacing of the keys is somewhat closer.

    My only (small) complaints: the "return" or "enter" key is a little too small to my taste, and the two USB connectors provided are not powerful enough to use recharge my Ipad while I'm using it. They still can, however, recharge it very slowly if the Ipad is in sleep mode.

    Overall, for me it's the best $50 I've ever spent on a keyboard. But I understand people who might disagree with me. So my best advice to you is to go to a store which has one on display, and try it out for yourself before buying it.

    Brilliant keyboard!!!

    Apple raises the bar once again. This flat keyboard is another brilliant design from Apple! I purchased the iMac about a month ago as a companion for my MacBook and although, I loved the wireless keyboard that came with it; I needed the numeric keyboard to quickly pay bills and entering the daily spending into my monthly budget. It was easy to adjust to, from the bulky PC keyboards that I am accustom to using at the office. I suggest pairing it with the Magic Mouse.

    Apple Keyboard

    Great Keyboard!!! I love it!!!

    It indeed does have a natural feel. It's light and sleek like all Apple Products. I had a iMac but recently bought the new Mac Mini but kept my keyboard and mouse!!

    Don't Listen To The Naysayers!

    I use an Apple 15" MacBook Pro for one job and use a 17" MacBook Pro (both all aluminum series) for another job and let me tell you, typing, leaning over a desk, and hands resting on the laptop for 12 - 14 hours a day was starting to do a number on my elbows and wrists. I got this keyboard and now I can sit back in my office chair, rest my hands on the arm rests of my chair, and get a lot of work done!

    The keyboard feels natural. I don't find that the keys are awkward, depressed too much or hard to navigate. I think the style and design is perfect, key placement is perfect and the number pad is an added plus! The keys are very quite and the keyboard is solid. It's not made of plastic but made out of the same aluminum material used in all of Apple's high-quality products now-a-days....come to think about it, an aluminum ipod would be slammin!!!

    Even though it's not wireless, at least now I have an extra USB that I never had before.

    I would highly recommend buying this if you type for long periods of time throughout the day.

    Hope this helps anyone!

    Apple wired Keyboard

    Love, love, LOVE the new keyboard! I had a spill on my old one (first time for me) & I'm actually glad it happened - I didn't realize the new keyboard was so light and has almost silent key operation. I use the usb side ports for mice & cameras.

    Amazingly low profile and very smooth

    I love the 1/4 press keys and the ease of use, and I have had it for more than a year and still love it. I type at least 12 pages a day on this aluminum keyboard and i have never experienced any cramping and my tendinitis never flares up. I find myself wanting to take it to work because the win pc's that we have at work still use the full key bulky keyboards and I'm always getting cramps and my tendinitis is killing me.

    Until mac comes out with a keyboard that improves on this one i will never switch back.

    Totally cool!

    I love Apple so much! I like the wireless Apple Keyboard better but if you need the numeric key pad then this is a great keyboard! Buy it!!!

    Excellent keyboard

    I recently replaced the keyboard that came with my computer (it had a run-in with lasagna once) and am entirely impressed by this new thinner, easy-to-use design. I am extremely happy with the feel of the keyboard and it makes typing much easier as you don't have to keep your hands so high off the desk. Will definitely be keeping this keyboard for a long time to come.

    A SOLID KEYBOARD

    This Keyboard is smooth, and sleek. The keys are easy to push down with little travel. This increased my keyboarding speed. Not to mention; it's one of the best looking Keyboards with a Numeric Keypad. The USB inputs on each side of the Keyboard are tucked under nice and neat. Apple design and innovation is why this Keyboard is under my fingers right now.

    Couldn't be happier!

    To sum everything up; this keyboard is amazing. It has a great feel to it. It has made typing a pleasure again, if not a little fun. The keys are easy to depress, and since they are low profile I've actually added about 15-20 wpm to my typing speed. You kind of glide more than type with this thing. The only thing you might want to look out for, is the edges are a little "sharp", for lack of a better word.

    Would love to see this in an ergonomic version. But it's amazing! Buy it!

    The best keyboard I have ever used!

    I originally purchased this keyboard (over a year ago) to go with my MacBook as I prefer not to use the laptop keyboard. I have used it on windows xp and more recently windows 7 in addition to Leopard and Snow Leopard. No problems with it ever. It is super comfortable to type on and very easy to keep clean. I have used loads of different keyboards in nearly every price range and this one beats them all. (If they sold them at office max so I could get one to use at work, that would be great.)

    Excellent Keyboard!!! Highly Recommended!!!

    I purchased this keyboard when it was first released, I think about 2 years ago now. Not a single problem with it so far. I clean it periodically with iKlear and a microfiber towel. Some of the commonly used keys and the space bar have developed a bit of a shine from constant use. The keys "feel" great - very easy to use, the spring pressure feels very natural for me. The super thin design means less stress on your hands and wrists, and easier all day use. If you are looking for a really great replacement keyboard at a reasonable price, this is a solid choice.

    Two small requests...

    I think it would be great to have 2 USB ports on the front to each side of the cable, like the previous generation keyboard. Perhaps even a total of 4 USB ports. That being said, I rarely use the USB ports because they are a bit difficult to access on the side.

    I would really LOVE to have this keyboard in black and silver to match my iMac better, and to have the option for back lit keys like the Macbook Pro's have. Black and silver would be nice, with selectable back lighting would be super. On/off, adjustable brightness - maybe a few LED color choices like white, blue, red, green - depending on your conditions or mood. White for general purpose, red for stealthy operations, blue for that cool electric modern feel, green because geniuses pick green :-)

    Great

    Great keyboard and designed to the standard you would expect from Apple. Now thanks to the review column it also allows me the opportunity to laugh at all the no0bs who actually expected the usb ports to support high powered devices, do some research first.

    20 years of programming, my favorite so far

    I wouldn't mind a wireless version with the extended key set, but wired is fine for me. Also, some may prefer a keyboard that works a little better with wrist supports. For me, however, this is the finest keyboard I've used so far. The keys feel solid and respond excellently, it's quiet, and minimally designed. No extra junk keys plastered about, no bright LEDs, no software drivers or configuration, just a great feeling keyboard!
