    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Love the keyboard, but wish it had the extended numeric keypad included like the corded keyboard. What gives? Let's do it!

    Bluetooth keyboard

    • Written by from Horsham

    Well made product for the 'average' user although I have had no problems yet I am sure that with heavy use it will be more likely to fail in certain crutial ways.
    Otherwise its a great product.

    Cons: I wish it would turn on and off quicker because like most people, I dont like to wait.

    Good keyboard, One flaw

    • Written by from San antonio

    I bought this keyboard and have had it for about a week or so, and really fell in love with it. One major flaw, and I understand its not with all of them, but the keyboard is not centered right. When I hit the left "shift" key, the keyboard seems to bounce on the left side. The rubbers of the keyboard dont seem to be aligned correctly. In other words the keyboard rocks side to side when typing. Very annoying. Because i have lost the receipt to this keyboard I have put scotch tape under one of the rubbers to even it out.

    Decent Keyboard but pricey for what you get

    • Written by from Livermore

    Overall this is an excellent keyboard. Small enough for easy transport and what not but large enough to use comfortably. My biggest qualm is the lack of a number pad. I am very used to having a number pad and the lack of it drives me crazy sometimes.

    Very good, a little small but works flawlessly

    • Written by from Red Rock

    Picked up this keyboard along with the Magic Mouse. I find the keyboard a little small with the absence of the number pad but the keyboard works well. I still have the wired keyboard under the desk. If I want to switch back but so far I haven't. The keyboard feels the same and types the same as the orginal wired version. I do like the fat that the desk top if free of the wires.

    good keyboard, bad build

    • Written by from Prospect

    i recently got a 27 inch iMac with the keyboard and trackpad, i thought they were both really great, i moved them a lot, because i was in the process of getting a new desk, i had it set up on a table in front of my bed, and when i moved the keyboard and pad from the table sometimes, i noticed chips in the aluminum body, in both the keyboard and the track pad. other than that, i thought they were pretty good.

    Serious Travel

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    I have had this keyboard since June 2011 and travel extensively. The keyboard is very functional and I like typing on it very much. Feels pretty much like the keyboard on my MacBook Pro 17". The keyboard is not collapsible, which makes it a little difficult to travel with, because I pack my computer case with a lot of other things, including my laptop and iPad. I throw the keyboard in my large check-in suitcase between the clothes. I have been doing this for months and traveled all over the world and the keyboard always works great when I pull it out of the suitcase. I worry that it will get bent in the suitcase, but so far the aluminum construction has held up.

    For meetings I do not take the keyboard, but just type notes on the iPad keypad. I don't like to, but this keyboard, though, portable, is just a little too big for taking to meetings, in my opinion. A have taken it, so it is more or less a matter of preference.

    I have not used any other portable keyboards, so can't compare it to others. Four stars because of the portability issue.

    Good keyboard, missing some key buttons

    • Written by from Toledo

    Love the look of this keyboard, however there are a few buttons that are missing from it that, coming from a PC, I miss horribly.

    These buttons include: Home, End, Delete, (and less frequently) Page Up/Down

    Coming from a person that is used to PC's, these are hugely missed. It's much more convenient to be able to delete text backward AND forward, but unless you want to use a combination of keys, you can't do that (which decreases any ergonomics for the keyboard itself)

    It's exceptionally compact, which I do like quite a bit. They did scrimp and save a bit on the paint job, though, as it took a tumble off my couch and hit the trim on my wall and scraped the cheap silver paint clean off. It's an esthetic issue, honestly, but still an issue none-the-less.

    The battery on this thing is amazing. I've had it since September and use it nearly on a daily basis (though, admittedly, this Mac is connected to the TV, so it's not used AS much as the mouse). This being said the battery is at 75% and I've never had to change batteries yet. It's just nice not having to have a keyboard that needs charging every month.

    Back to a bit of bad - the ergonomics are just not there. There's only one position that the keyboard can be placed as there is not levers or height increase flaps. It's not a huge thing as I type on my lap, but if I were doing things professionally, this could be of concern to me.

    Like I said before this is connected to a TV, and so I don't do a bunch of this anyways, however you should be aware that they decided to get rid of the number pad to save space / make more compact. I don't miss it, but if you wanted this option then this would not be the keyboard for you. IIRC you *can* buy a num pad by itself, but that would need different batteries, and unless you're doing accounting, you're not going to need it.

    This keyboard is of great quality, i've never used a wireless keyboard before and this keyboard is very exceptional. It works great when i play online games (like SCII: which require lots of quick key combinations) i never feel any lag between what i press and what happens.
    Any other wireless keyboard i use is going to have a lot to match up to.

    Lastly, i was having an issue when i pressed the space bar and when i let go the space kept going. As i panicked, the keyboard "lost connection" and then "connected" again. I was so surprised it had its own failsafe that i stopped what i was doing to write this review and share how awesome the keyboard is.

    Although this tiny model is a very nice keyboard, I REALLY miss the full size version with the numeric keypad. Please offer a full size wireless keyboard. I am tied to a corded model as I use my numeric keypad often. Also, please consider repositioning the up/down, left/right arrow keys. Have the up and down together, then the left/right together. The way they are spaced now with the down key located in the middle of the left/right is very annoying. You have to skip over the down key when you are using only your left & right. Looking forward to seeing a full size wireless keyboard. Thanks in advance.

    With the numeric keypad back, I would give it 5 stars.

    This is the only kind of keyboard that actually increased my typing speed instead of decreasing it. There's no need to adjust or make any modifications. The battery life is great and I am getting spoiled by this! Using it on my iPad 2 is awesome and I no longer have to get used to typing on the touch screen or having the on-screen keyboard blocking my view! The only reason I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5 is because that I actually have to use batteries. It doesn't come with a recharger and I hope that in the future, apple will make a rechargeable one that easily recharges from a wall outlet or by usb.

    I do like the keyboard. The main reason I got it is for school and to use it on my iPad, but I never really use it. I never bought any word or pages for my iPad, I do all of my reports on my computer, so it is useless almost to me. But I believe that it is a great keyboard.

    Great accessorry for an iPad

    • Written by from Manhasset

    I just purchased this in order to use it with my iPad, rather than having to clunk around on the ipad keyboard. So far, I really love this product. It's lightweight and the keystrokes respond nicely to my typing, infinitely better than having to email using the iPad keyboard. I bought the incase origami stand to go with it and the two work really well together. Now I can leave my laptop at home when I don't need to use excel, word or flash, which I'm verry happy about.

    It works, but not as comfortable as full size

    • Written by from new rochelle

    I got this wireless keyboard with my Imac. A friend bought an Imac a year earlier, and that one came with the extended (cabled) keyboard. The extended keyboard has dedicated numeric pad and seems somewhat wider and easier to type on. I've gotten used to the wireless version, but it doesn't seem as comfortable as a full keyboard. Also, the key 'throw' is short like all apple keyboards and that takes some getting used to. Overall it's ok. Battery life is very good. Perhaps six months or so. As for set-up, synching, etc., no worries there, either.

    Like it! Love it! Gotta have it!

    • Written by from surprise

    I loved my Apple Aluminum Wired Keyboard w/ Numeric Pad and I wasn't using the num pad much and I have small desk so I decided to get this. I love it as much as my wired, don't miss the num pad. It is perfect with my Magic Mouse. The only thing is it takes time to get used to the slightly altered spacing between a compact one like this and the one with the num pad. FIY this will work with Leopard, Apple just says it only works with SL and up cause they want you to shell out another $29 for the OS upgrade.
    Also Apple should make a wireless keyboard with the num pad like Pro one a few years back. Better yet, make the next iteration of keyboard with backlit keys!

    while the functionality of the keyboard is awesome, it's just a bit small. I'm probably going to buy the keyboard with the numeric keypad anyway.
