    Bluetooth Keyboard

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    When I first got this keyboard, I had a hard time without the numbers on the side as well as the top.

    I got past that and learned to love it.

    Now it has dies.

    I would not recommend.

    wireless keyboard, great if you want carpal tunnel syndrome....

    • Written by from Marietta

    I can't believe the reviews for this keyboard have been overwhelming positive -- this keyboard is a joke. For $2000, I would think Apple could include a keyboard that doesn't cause carpal tunnel syndrome. After using this thing for a few hours, my neck, wrists and elbow were hurting. Yes it's sleek and minimal and pretty to look at, but give me a break -- did they test this out? Did they use it for an extended period of time? It's a horrible design... absolutely nothing ergonomically correct about this keyboard. I will be ordering a different keyboard as soon as possible and throwing this one in the trash where it belongs.

    A step down from the wired keyboard.

    • Written by from Wichita

    The wireless keyboard does not have a number pad or a USB. So now when I need to attach my camera, I have to fish around behind the screen to use a USB. The keypad is an important part of the keyboard for me and without it I'm greatly hindered. Not a wise purchase for me. I sure was looking forward to going completely wireless. Guess not.

    Batteries die fast

    • Written by from Marietta

    Since I bought the key board it stops working after a few days because it says the batteries are dead. Thinking about changing it to a wired keyboard.

    IF YOU ARE DESIGNER STAY AWAY FROM IT!!!

    • Written by

    This keyboard is softer and lighter from previous Apple keyboards but this one that came with my new iMac 27" is a piece of junk, specially if you use Photoshop, QuarkXPress etc etc etc. I´ve lost lot of shortcuts, designing using this keyboard makes you really nervous. APPLE YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE OF DESIGNERS, AFTER ALL THANKS US YOU SURVIVED, are you too busy looking for PC users that you forgot the main customers and the ones that really defeated you?

    not recommended for professional artist

    • Written by from corona

    dear apple,

    by now you should already know, that a majority of your customers are professional artists. people who spend countless hours in photoshop, after effect, and illustrator. minimalists may be, but the numeric keys, home, end, pageup, pagedn...etc. are very important to us designers and animators. this keyboard is literally useless especially in after effect. i'm not sure what your limitations are for making a sleek wireless keyboard that not only looks good on our desks but also does not involve us changing all the default hotkeys. but please figure it out sooner rather than later.

    for now, we shall be the group of unimportant customers of yours who has to be limited to buying your standard wired keyboard with a numeric keypad.

    thank you for letting us know that steve job's legacy has came to an end for rolling out this useless product.

    Don't purchase this one

    • Written by from Lake Oswego

    I've had this Keyboard for maybe 6 months, and 4 of the keys have fallen off. I transport the keyboard from work to my office and back, but I feel like it should stand up to that. Once they fall off, there is no easy way to pop them back on, so the keyboard is basically useless, and I ordered a replacement today from a different company. Also, this keyboard would often repeat keys when waking up, even though the key was only pressed once. Disappointed.

    Good Product. But at this price we expect great Product. Looks great though

    • Written by from Pune

    Good keyboard. Not bad at all. But at a price of 69$, we expect a great product. E.g. it is not backlit, No numeric keypad. Moreover at the time of reboot, if you hold Option key, it does not give options of startup disk. If you blame bluetooth for this, who stopped Apple from using wifi? A $10 logitech wifi keyboard does that. At this price we can't have such a loosely functional keyboard. Looks great though.

    Too small and different size than my MacBook Air keyboard

    • Written by from PASADENA

    This wireless keyboard came with a new iMac 27" that I purchased recently. While I love the large screen for the iMac I am frustrated by the keyboard.

    I toggle between my MacBook Air when I am out of the office and my iMac when in the office. The keyboard causes me all sorts of problems.

    1) It is too small

    2) The keys feel like they are closer together on the wireless keyboard vs. the laptop, causing all sorts of problems

    3) The ergonomics required to use the keyboard are bad -- there is no place rest ones wrists as is the case with a laptop

    It seems that Apple does not make a wireless FULL SIZE keyboard so I may need to switch to a wired one.

    No number keypad and eats batteries

    • Written by from Prairie Village

    Functionally, the Apple Wireless Keyboard does what it's supposed to do... until you try to type in a phone number on your address book... or open the Calculator application when you are paying bills... or add number cells on your Excel spreadsheet.

    Apple made the keyboard "cute" but removed the important keypad on the right side. Don't think you'll miss it? I did.

    Otherwise, the keyboard works great until your batteries go dead.

    Defective x2

    • Written by from Claremont

    My wife bought this to run with her Powerbook. She wasn't able to link up with the computer and so did more hunting and found many people with the same complaint. Very frustrating. So I tried it with my iMac. It linked up fine and I actually love the feel of it. However, several letters in the upper right, like "P" and the dash, didn't work. Disappointing an an Apple product to find not one but two major problems. I think we'll be reluctant to risk trying another one since we found all the other negative reviews of the thing. Too bad as I liked the feel of it and the look of it.

    Battery compartment design is based on fantasy, not reality

    • Written by from San Carlos

    The design of the battery compartment of this device is a piece of wishful thinking. The space between the batteries and the compartment wall is so narrow that the tiniest bit of swelling or corrosion will cause the inner battery to become permanently stuck. Worse: accessing the compartment from the other side requires removing a phillips fastener made of inferior metal which strips instantly. So I am now the owner of an expensive lump of useless metal. (I should point out, too, that these were name-brand Energizer batteries, not cheap knock-offs.)

    Earth to Apple: Real batteries can swell up slightly and/or leak if they get too hot. Next time, please design your products with that fact in mind.

    P.S. I think it's quite funny that you can't use the five-letter word for a helical phillips-head fastener in this forum. Fastener you, Apple! ;-)

    Function Keys Dont Work!!!

    • Written by from Miller Place

    I had to reset all my key functions when I installed this keyboard. The Dashboard Button (F4) was not opening the dashboard feature. and I can't get my Sound Function keys ( Pause, play, forward, reverse ) to work either. This keyboard would be a hundred times better if it had numeric keypad and also "backspace + delete" Keys. Not just one. I wish I had not spent my money on this keyboard. A lot of money for so little in return.

    wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Miami Lakes

    I bought it about a year ago and it stopped working about three months ago.
    I changed the batteries and checked the wireless connection; and it still isn't working.
    Currently, it's setting on my desk right now and I plan to take it back to the Mac store where I bought as soon as I get a moment to do so. What a bummer.

    Soft aluminum

    • Written by from Miami

    Very soft aluminum magnesium alloy material that is used for the keyboard frame makes it very susceptible to damage if dropped and rendering it useless especially in the area of the power button. Cool and sleek design at the cost of durability and reliability. I owned my keyboard for less than 24 hours before I found out how quickly I can waste $70
