    love it!

    • Written by from brooklyn

    I got this remote as a hanukkah gift, and after about 3 weeks of owning it I can say that I love it. It goes perfect with my 13" MacBook Pro, and it sits right beside me on my desk. A really useful app is 'Remote Buddy' which lets you use your remote to control every application you've got. I strongly recommend this remote to your if youre thinking of purchasing it.

    New Remote is alright, just like the old one

    • Written by from Bozeman

    I don't think that the metal version of this mouse is all that different from the older white one. If I hadn't lost my white one I wouldn't have purchased a new metal one. I do like how you can use it to control a presentation and frontrow is always nice.

    i like it a lot but one thing i would like it to do is scroll when you move your finger around the wheel, like on the ipod because i find it easier to look through music and find the right song. i think that apple has made another great product! fits nice in your hand and i like the quick access to front row when you press menu!

    Does not work with iPhone alone.

    • Written by from Oxnard

    I wanted the remote to be able to control the iPhone when docked on a stereo base. Unfortunately in order to control the iPhone via this remote you need the iPhone docking base. I wish the guy at the apple store would have told me that when i asked him. All in all, remote looks and works great but just not with the iPhone. "If only the iPhone had an IR reciever".....

    Works Great

    • Written by from Mount Solon

    My Apple Remote works very well. I can now sit in bed and list to some music on iTunes without even getting up. The Apple Remote has a wonderfully slim design and I'd recommend it to anyone buying a new Mac. I love how it matches my new 15-inch MacBook Pro! :)

    It's okay....

    • Written by from Kennett Square

    I was really excited to get the new version because i had the previous one. When i got it, it seemed so cool, but it was weirder to use than the old one. I find myself pressing the menu button instead of the center button often, and it is heard to find buttons in general. The old one was much easier to use, but not as attractive. Now that i lost the old one, i guess i will have to deal with the new one.

    It should have volume control. Otherwise, it's very good.

    things always get too small

    • Written by from Krombeke

    I liked the old one far more than the new one.
    the new one is even smaller, and i lose it all the time, i switched back to the old one!
    its far more beautiful and ergonomic

    Great addition for any user

    • Written by from Chester

    I received the Apple Remote as a gift. It is a lot easier to use from the previous version. It's durable with a sleek design. It has allowed me to use Front Row with ease along with controlling the volume from a distance. I would recommend this product to an Apple user. For the price you can beat it.

    I bought this remote today and I absolutely love it! the plastic case it was in was slim, but once out of the packaging this thing feels just awesome in your hand. function may take some getting used to, I find myself accidentally pushing the center button while using the arrow wheel, it seems rather unnecessary since there's now a button with the same function to the right of the menu. even with that I would absolutely recommend this remote over the ugly white plastic remote that came with the apple tv or your mac.

    Great product

    • Written by from Saint Paul

    Remote works great as advertised. A MAJOR suggestion for improvement would be to add an integrated laser pointer. That is all this product is missing.

    Hard to press buttons.

    • Written by from Miami

    The remote is beautiful in every respect except usage. Pressing buttons is hard because of the lack of tactile differentiation. The main issue is with the directional buttons vs the center button. If one is not looking it's easy to confuse them and press the wrong button. So you might find yourself having to look at the remote to see where you are pressing.

    That's unacceptable. There is no reason Apple can't make a remote that's tactile enough to easily differentiate among keys and easily press without looking. Actually they did, the old Apple remote works perfectly in this regard.

    Minimalism at it's purist

    • Written by from Milford

    Once again Apple has managed to take the simple and keep it there. A simple remote control milled from a single piece of aluminum - it really feels good in your hands - brilliant.

    Great product!! Fits nicely in your hand. It has a quality feel to it. Worked with my MacBook and Apple TV without a problem. Jonathan did another great job designing this masterpiece. Can't wait to get my iMac! Keep up the great work!

    form over function?

    • Written by

    Everyone knows that Apple make great products. This remote control looks like it should be another one. It feels great in your hand, has a nice weight and matches the new macbook perfectly, which is nice. I ordered my one from this website and when it arrived (the first working day after purchase) it worked perfectly. It was really easy to link up to my laptop and it started working straight away! The only problem is that it stopped working again almost as fast. I've had it for about 10 hours now and it barely works... It feels like it might be out of battery. You only get anything at all from it if you hold it 6 inches from the computer and even then, you get a response from every 12th jam on the button or so. The only thing that stopped me from smashing it was the thought that if it should then somehow miraculously start working again it would be damaged and the fact that ending with the words, "... then I smashed it." might hurt my story when it comes to getting a free shiny new one. I'm really just venting frustration here and i'm sure this is a one off (otherwise this page would be full of angry reviews) so I wouldn't go on this when deciding whether to buy or not. In the short time it was functioning properly, it was good! It works with iTunes and "Front Row" as well as "Keynote" presentations so its perfect. The buttons are a little on the small side. I don't have ridiculous hands and I feel like i'm pressing two buttons at once sometimes but its a good product and i'm sure it's handy when it works.

    Out of this world

    • Written by from PLEASANTON

    It has an incredibly pleasing feel to it. It is a same functioning design as the cheap plastic one, usually included with purchase of the Apple TV or Mac Book Pro, but the beauty of this Remote is hard to describe. You will love it.
