    No 10-key numeric on the keypad?

    • Written by from Mendota Heights

    I am very disappointed that Apple would cut corners by eliminating the 10-key numeric feature on the keypad (or at least the option to have one). The last time I recall this was on the 512k Fat Mac I bought in about 1985. I wonder how many other 20th Century features have been resurrected.

    Hating the new keyboard!

    • Written by from New Hope

    It's pretty & cute, but not very functional. I can't believe they dropped the 10-key numbers off to the right side of the keyboard. It makes it very difficult to use.

    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.

    Fragile Keyboard

    • Written by from Alto

    Now on our third keyboard in less than 2 years with the iMac. Built to last just beyond the warranty. Bought a competitor keyboard and it works fine. Would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Keyboard is too small

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The keyboard would be fine if it was larger. It is too small for most adult male hands. Not only is it prone to typing errors, for me it is an ergonomic disaster due to the cramped position of the hands.

    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.

    Absolute waste of money!!!

    • Written by from New Orleans

    Do not buy this if you live in a place where the temperature gets above 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The battery compartment is too narrow, and batteries tend to swell and/or leak when exposed to heat. This leads to corrosion, and when this happens, you will be unable to open your keyboard... thus rendering it useless!

    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.

    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.

    Exceptionally Impractical

    • Written by

    I recently started a job for a company that uses imac's with these included keyboards. I'm learning quickly that this keyboard, which is the same size and form factor to that of a built in keyboard on a laptop, is extremely impractical for full time use as a dedicated desktop keyboard. Along with the added bulk of the battery compartment, this keyboard doesn't even seem to be fit for portable use - so rule that out as well.

    There's really no substitute for a real desktop keyboard for dedicated desktop use; with full size responsive keys (not chiclets), numeric keypad, and usb connection (granted thats not what this keyboard is, it's still a poor substitute since that is its intended use).

    The one star I did give it is because this still serves as a "decorative" piece when not in use :-P

    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.
