It pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work straight away. And the battery is incredibly long-lasting — it will power your keyboard for about a month or more between charges.

      Noisy and cheap-feeling, terrible value for money

This new one is definitely a step backwards. The keys feel cheap and nasty and are very very noisy when you type. I record screencasts during which I'm often typing, and the noise is ruining my audio. Also the lower angle makes it more uncomfortable to type. Unfortunately this being apple you don't have much choice if you need a keyboard, but if you can find an alternative, buy it. There's no way this is worth the £79 I paid for it.

      Excellent, as usual

      I read a few reviews about this keyboard before I bought one and a lot of them said that the arrow keys were hard to use and in general wasn't easy to use, not I read a few reviews about this keyboard before I bought one and a lot of them said that the arrow keys were hard to use and in general wasn't easy to use, not sure what they are all talking about, it is a great product, yes the arrow keys are a little smaller than on the old keyboards but there is no difference in usability, my fingers found the right keys from the start!

      Another solid Apple product

      I have had this keyboard for a few days now, and I have found that I can type much faster on this keyboard because of the lower key travel. As most other review I have had this keyboard for a few days now, and I have found that I can type much faster on this keyboard because of the lower key travel. As most other reviews have said, this new version is louder to type. But I quite like the noise, each key makes a satisfying tap to compensate for the lower key travel. The lower key travel does make they keyboard much easier to use, and is defiantly an upgrade from my wired apple keyboard with the num pad. Although, the only thing I would want it to do is be able to act as a wired keyboard through the lightning cable, as at work we have really rubbish keyboards, but no bluetooth, therefore I'd love to be able to simply plug this keyboard into my work computer and continue to use it there. This is another great product from apple. Im not sure it's worth £79 however at least when you buy from apple you can rest assured that you are buying quality and that the product is designed by Jony Ive!

      Too small and keys cramped for average user

      Overall just way too small. If you are using a 27inch screen you surely have room for a normal sized keyboard, wireless or otherwise. I can live without the Overall just way too small. If you are using a 27inch screen you surely have room for a normal sized keyboard, wireless or otherwise. I can live without the number pad on the right but bunching the arrow keys together just to fit the size is lazy design and doesn't, to me, take the average user into account. I find it's not suited to longer writing sessions and as a creative who routinely nudges elements in my designs by small increments using those keys, the whole half sized up and down buttons are awful. I find typing with it a pain. I thought the wireless aspect would be good as it would be one less cable on the desk but it forces me into an uncomfortable chicken wing position. I'm assuming it's a straight lift from the laptop. I'd like to see a wireless version of the standard desktop keyboard especially given the price bump on the wireless option. I expected better from Apple.

      misleading reviews

      read the previous review about noisy keyboard and nearly didn't buy it, but went ahead anyway as can't use mac without it and I'm very pleased I did, it's reall read the previous review about noisy keyboard and nearly didn't buy it, but went ahead anyway as can't use mac without it and I'm very pleased I did, it's really quiet just the same as my old one,which I unfortunately spilt a drink on while trying to get to the phone. yes I would have like it to be cheaper obviously,but it's great, easy to set up quiet, easy to use and very sleek, only worry is the integral battery and how long before I have to replace the keyboard when it stops charging. apart from that, very happy

      I wish there was the full layout model

      I love the new keys feel: you don't need to press the key much and it has a firm response. The fact it has a built-in battery you can charge using a Lightening I love the new keys feel: you don't need to press the key much and it has a firm response. The fact it has a built-in battery you can charge using a Lightening cable is also great. However, being a software developer I move around the code quite a lot and I miss more accessible cursor keys, PgUp, PgDown - I know you can use Fn Up/Down but it's not the same. I also need to trim nails very short otherwise it is difficult for me to type. I wish there was the full layout model available with the new butterfly keys, but with num pad and normal cursor keys.
