    I bought this for and addition with the new MacBook Pro 13 inch and it turns out great! Working effectively with my professional mighty mouse. It's really something different than using your iPhone as a keyboard. A must for people that likes to connect their Macs to TV's or projectors or Cinema Displays!

    Love the keyboard, but tired of being ripped off by Apple upgrades...

    • Written by from Toronto

    Bought the original (3 battery) version of this in April this year; very annoyed to find it's now $20 cheaper and uses one less battery - my version is now more expensive (lithium batteries aren't cheap) and more wasteful to run. It's great that Apple keeps improving its products, but frustrating for customers who invest in (overspend on?) peripherals that outdate so quickly. (Apple's "Mighty" Mouse is another example - can't even buy the wireless version anymore.)

    That said, I don't regret the purchase - it's made my work this year a lot more pleasant. Love the size and shape, the tiny footprint, the look, the quietness of the keys. Adjusted to the flat keys easily, my hands are relatively large for a woman and I don't feel the keyboard is too cramped (though am very used to, and comfortable with, typing on a laptop). Lack of numeric keypad is actually a bonus for me as it frees up desk space and makes mousing more comfortable. I agree with other people's complaints about having to use multi-key combos for various functions - this can be a pain (remembering them, if nothing else), but not insurmountable. I do miss having instant page up, page down keys, etc. It would be handy if Apple provided a quick shortcuts guide along with their keyboards...

    Portability is fantastic. I work as an editor so need my desk space uncluttered and easily clearable to fit large pages on - lack of wires is essential, and the ability to just stick this keyboard anywhere - shelf, windowsill, stack of books, lap (though it's a little small for this to be ideal)- and still type is terrific. Or I can pop it in a drawer if I don't need it. Battery life so far has been great, though I'm careful to manually switch it off if I leave the desk for more than a few mins - allegedly it powers down by itself but there's no way to check this for sure, as it instantly "powers on" the second you type (how do you know it hasn't been running the whole time?). I'm still using the three lithium batteries it came with, and they're low but still working almost 7 months later.

    - did initially have some Bluetooth connectivity issues where the keyboard would drop out, or certain keys (but not others) would randomly stop working, but I suspect this was software related. I've downloaded all updates as they've come along and things seem to have been running smoothly the last couple of months.
    - the white keys do get dirty, unless you're totally pristine in your computer habits and wash your hands before using it every time! But they can also be cleaned up fairly easily.
    - this tends to be a problem with most keyboards, but long fingernails are definitely a hindrance with this one (keep 'em short or go elsewhere!).

    Overall, a great decision for me. It loses a star due to the minor glitches I've had with it but mostly to me feeling somewhat ripped off by the Apple machine. Mac users like to believe the hype, on the whole, and good faith has to go both ways...

    I cannot do power typing on this keyboard AT ALL--I make numerous typos. So...I slide out my keyboard drawer, put a plug in keyboard that I had in the garage, and keep the wireless one in back of the keyboard. I love the look of the wireless keyboard, and what it's about, but can't use it!! I am very disappointed. Does anyone have an idea how to have a 'plug-in keyboard' that is totally compatible with Mac, and you can actually power type on it???

    No delete key

    • Written by from Shickshinny

    I recently bought at the Apple Store in NY the new iPad and Apple Wireless Keyboard in Spanish to use with my Apple computers and the iPad. The iPad, great! but was disappointed by the keyboard because it does not have a delete key: you can delete letters, etc. backwards, but no letters or anything else to your right, something people who write do constantly. Can someone offer a solution? Thanks.

    bad space key

    • Written by from Garden City

    I have not use the keyboard hardly and now am starting EMR using my iPad- but the keyboard space key sticks down - still functions but during typing it is hard to know if it is working or not because it stays flat. I suspect that after typing for a few weeks or less this will not work at all. I can pull it up and it stays for a few letters but then sticks down again - a LEMON? Stored in original box until 2 days ago.

    Great Keyboard!

    I love this keyboard

    • Written by from Winston-salem

    I do lots of typing, and I've found this keyboard to be very easy on my hands. I like the touch of the keys and it's great not having a keyboard take up a lot of space. As a left-hander, having the numbers on the right hand side was something I never used, so I don't miss it.

    Looks Ten, Types 3

    • Written by from Bloomington

    So this keyboard has a great look and feels like a laptop. This is not a good choice for doing a lot of typing as the keys are too close together and don't give enough feedback - either tactile or auditory - when you type. Useless for data entry. I thought Apple wanted to appeal to the business and scientific community. The separate aftermarket calculator has gotten only two stars.
    I made my own keyboard stand to put this keyboard in the proper angle and position to type with a wrist rest. Still not as good as some of the after market keyboards. Bluetooth can be buggy at times and depend on battery charge, USB less of a problem. If it came with an iMac, save it to use with your iPad, and buy an aftermarket wired keyboard if you do a lot of typing. I wouldn't buy it as a replacement keyboard.
    This is a case of form being subservient to function.

    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.

    Excellent keyboard, but I wish it were full-sized. It types well especially if you are used to apple laptop keyboard and with the magic track-pad, it's a great match-up.

    The design is great and the feel of the buttons is different than previous models, but you get used to it rather quickly. No problem there. My problem is that it does not have a numerical keypad. I did not know that when I optioned out of the wired keyboard and chose the wireless one during my MacPro purchase. After the computer arrived and I realized there was no numerical keypad, I was disappointed but hoped I wouldn't miss the keypad that much. I found that if you used it in the past for passwords or any other numerical type of entry, you will miss it every time with this model. I have no idea why Apple doesn't offer two wireless models. One without a numerical keypad and one with. I am selling my wireless keyboard and purchasing one with a keypad. I lasted 5 months.

    I purchased this keyboard for my ipad and I love it. I use it for all my school assignments on my pages app and they are both excellent together I would recommend buying this product for this reason, its making my Ipad more and more like a laptop and I love it its just what I wanted and the keyboard is not a bad price either. Now if a wireless mouse would work with my ipad it would be awesome. thank you apple!

    Works really well

    • Written by

    Was looking around for a bluetooth keyboard for my Vaio. The only product that I found being small, light, ergonomic and strong was the Apple Wireless Keyboard.

    After using the product I love it. Its very well engineered, strong, lightweight and looks really good. On top of that the keys are really the best I tried to type with. Short keystroke and distinct.

    The keyboard is missing some keys for Windows. However, that is not a problem. I downloaded a small free program that remaps the keys (like the Win key that I never use) to another key. Its all done by adding registry entries, so no resident program. Got all the functionality that I need and I am very happy with the product.

    complainers are fools

    • Written by from Stamford

    everyone please be advised that so many of the complaints below are invalid. these people do not know how to use mac products and therefore assume the keyboard is incapable of certain features.

    scrolling, pg up/down, delete fwd/back, blah blah blah - learn how to use command/function/control/option keys. all your worries are solved. my macbook pro doesn't have pg up/down, but its still the best laptop on the market

    to the complaints about numeric keyboard - anyone can see from the pictures that it is absent. don't buy the product if it doesn't have the specs you desire. if you do purchase, you can't give poor grade based on features you knew were absent prior to purchase

    great accessory for the iPad

    • Written by from Austin

    I purchased this device to use with my iPad. Pretty much the only initial annoyance with the iPad was typing. You have this large virtual keyboard, but I find that I can't type on it much faster than the one on my phone. So I picked up this guy and so far so good. fast sync with the iPad, small size, easy to throw in your laptop bag. Still on the first set of batteries after 1 month of use. Hardly travel with my macbook pro now.
