    Beware the critics

    • Written by from MORETON-IN-MARSH

    Clearly one or two people do not like this keyboard and that is their right and privilege. I have two of them and am about to buy a third. Why?

    I have been working with them for two years now and yes it took a bit of time to get used to the compact nature of the keyboard, and yes I therefore made lots of typos in the early days.

    What I appreciate is the speed of response, the very good tactile feel, the fact that it does not dominate my desk and even the fact that it is very easy to keep clean. Is it worth twice as much as the wired alternative (which is just as good to use)? Well that depends on how much you like wired over wireless and the need to buy batteries or not.

    In my humble opinion this is one of the most pleasant keyboards that I have used in a 30 year "keyboard career" and in the bad old "PC days" I used to spend small fortunes on keyboards.

    If you want lots of pretty function buttons that you will never use but like to think might be useful some day, this is NOT the keyboard for you.

    Perfect for iPad

    • Written by from Reading

    Just bought this to go with the iPad. Perfect for a lazy approach to typing (iPad in sleeve on coffee table, keyboard on lap on the sofa). Well made and stylish, I'd like to see a travel case for it.

    I love this keyboard

    • Written by from Milton Keynes

    It's just perfect for me - key size and spacing, length of travel, tactile feedback - it's all bang on. My only minor gripe is the lack of a keypad (thus 4* not 5), but I don't really miss it much.

    I'm not a touch typist, and it might be that someone who is would struggle, but I have nothing but praise for it.

    Great Little Keyboard, Perfect For Some But Not For Others.

    • Written by from Newport

    I see alot of people are saying some negative things about this keyboard. Personally I think it is amazing, the keys feel great to type using and are much quieter than the old clickety clack style plastic keyboards, solid build quality and the battery life is pretty good too. Your desk will never have looked as tidy as this!

    I will say, however, that it is unlikely to have been intended for serious office tasks and the likes, but then how many wireless keyboards could you say truly were?

    So as a warning to those who might be considering this keyboard for extended use for work/office tasks, maybe this keyboard isn't for you. That isn't to say that you can't get your work done with it, it's just that your workflow may differ to what you are accustomed to.

    And to those who are complaining about this keyboard as part of a bundle, may I say this: If you had taken the time to look with more depth into the equipment that you were buying you have clearly seen the obvious omission of the supplementary keys and could have assessed your needs at that point.

    Apple give you a choice to configure with a wired version with the more classic key arrangement at zero extra cost when buying the iMac.

    Very good, but not perfect.

    • Written by from Oxford

    The reason I purchased this keyboard is that I use my MacBook Pro keyboard so often that I eventually became used to the layout and chiclet keyboard and had a difficult time adjusting whenever I sat down to use my stationary keyboard.

    The design is great and it is sturdy and compact and I love how it can be put away in a drawer with ease whenever I want to free up space on my desk for books or papers. I have to complaints in terms of the design: (1) white keys get dirty and uglier more easily than do black keys--the keyboard should be offered in both colors; and (2) while I knew that I was getting a laptop keyboard mounted in a desktop casing, I can't help but miss having dedicated home, end and delete buttons.

    Superb for intended use

    • Written by from Douglas

    Contrary to the impression given by some reviews this keyboard has full-size keys with standard pitch. It is just that everything extraneous that could be left off, given current technology, has been. It is basically Apple's Macbook keyboard in a minimalist housing. If you cannot use this keyboard productively then you must have a very different typing style to me.

    The short-stroke keys did feel strange at first and need a light touch. For touch-typing I am now convinced this is the best solution and I find that the design imposes less strain than typical membrane keyboards and with no loss of typing speed. My previous favourite Microsoft ergonomic keyboard now feels spongy and hard work in comparison.

    Why use a wireless keyboard at all? To reduce desk clutter and for use away from the workstation for presentations or when driving something like Logic are the 2 reasons that appeal to me. This minimalist design meets this requirement perfectly as it is small and light enough to balance on my lap or my music stand far more easily than my older, full-size "plastic tray" wireless equivalent. It is also small enough to take on the road in a typical laptop rucksack which might make sense for use with an iPad.

    I have yet to get through my first set of batteries but I suspect power management is far better than on the previous model.

    For some applications and tasks a numeric keypad can be useful so I will not be throwing away my wired full-size model. For everyday tasks this is perfectly adequate as proven by Macbook users.

    I would rate it at 4 stars as a standard keyboard (a numeric keypad can be useful and I suppose the dedicated Delete key will appeal to hunt-and-peck typists) but definitely 5 for what I perceive to be its intended applications. The final deciding point for my purchase is that it can by used with the iPad and I don't think we will be able to resist buying one of those once they are available in the UK.

    Not just for Mac users!

    • Written by from Sheffield

    After being very happy with the keyboard on my MacBook Pro, I bought this keyboard for my WINDOWS 7 PC

    Firstly, this WILL work with a PC (as long as you have Bluetooth v2.0 or higher), simply add device, enter the code into the keyboard then press enter! Sadly, as Apple do not officially support windows installations you will have a couple of keys mis-matched and no use of the media keys... unless... you download boot camp (free from the Apple website) and this will match up all the keys, enable media keys and even the eject button works!

    Stop complaining about the loss of a handful of keys which are not needed...

    -the row you find above 'QWERTY' are numbers, you do not need to have another set of numbers on the right too

    -'fn' + backspace will do delete

    - and prt-srn is not needed, mac users press 'cmd' + 'shift' + '4' and select the part of the screen you actually want rather than the whole screen and windows users use the snipping tool which does the same thing.

    - Compact
    - Sturdy
    - Pleasure to type on
    - Compatible with PC and Mac

    - No extra keys or numeric pad
    - Not officially supported for Windows

    As regards the cons remember Apple offer a wired keyboard with the traditional layout which is cheaper, go and buy that if that is what you need. I prefer the extra space and freedom of a small wireless board. Finally, these keyboard come with iMacs, which are Windows compatible, so by extension they work on PCs also.

    Great product, as usual

    • Written by from Chester le Street

    Just bought this today and must say I'm very impressed. Although the keys are pretty much in the same place as the earlier wired keyboard, it seems it may take a few days to get used to how much less there is to the whole thing.

    Don't let other reviews put you off, people complaining about there not being a delete key. To delete something (not backspace), simply press the 'fn' key along with the 'backspace' key and voila, delete! It seems to me that unless everything is written out for some people, they just don't get it (hands up if you've complained there isn't a # key on Apple keyboards?? (Opt+3)).

    As expected, this keyboard has both form and function, and the fact I can stick it away in a drawer, or on the stand under my iMac, should I ever need immediate desk space, adds kudos in my opinion.

    I still like it!

    • Written by from DEAL

    I purchased my wireless keyboard when they first came out and found it to be just perfect until now ... the letters are wearing off the keyboard! The i has completely disappeared; the a,s,e,d and h are fading fast. I can cope with this as I am a touch typist who learned to type on a typewriter with the keys covered but it does rather spoil the look. Has anyone else had this problem?

    As for no delete key - just highlight whatever you need to delete and hit the back space key and voila it's deleted!

    Delete home end

    • Written by from brønshøj

    WHAT no delete key. Bravo probably the most used key on a normal keyboard
    No page up, page down, home, end keys.
    I just do not relax when using the keyboard, just to small.
    Design before functionality. Its a no go keyboard!

    Sleek & beautiful - no numeric keypad version - watch out on PC (tip)

    • Written by from CHIPPENHAM

    I got the keyboard with the new iMac and it is a lovely bit of kit, quite quiet and sleek. Unfortunately due to my work I need the numeric keypad so had to plug in the wired version I had and went to attach the wireless to the PC. I had a nightmare, the drivers needed updating, removing and updating over and over again and it kept losing connection on restart, with the iMac taking control over it. All I needed to do was to remove the keyboard from the Bluetooth preferences on the Mac (disconnected is not enough) which stopped it from butting in and stealing the wireless keyboard even though it had a USB version.

    I am now completely happy with it.

    Great keyboard (for windows too)

    • Written by from Romsey

    I use this computer for my new Windows 7 Home Theatre PC. Its absolutely great. It is small and sleek enough to be left out without being an eyesore and yet still usable without a desk. Looks brilliant and as with all my other mac stuff works without fault.
