    Good keyboard for a "normal" person, but not good for all day use

    • Written by from Redditch

    This keyboard looks fantastic, uses very little battery and utilises bluetooth technology so can be used at large distances which makes it's use with iMacs or cinema displays perfect when watching movies etc.

    It was also perfect when doing basic tasks like browsing the web, social media etc.

    However, when I'm doing front-end development and other similar tasks, the lack of num-pad, delete etc it makes life more difficult than using a standard keyboard.

    In a nut-shell, I'd recommend this keyboard to someone who uses their computer for basic browsing.

    Lovely but be warned

    • Written by from Wallasey

    Lovely keyboard, but be warned... if you leave it turned off for too long (like about 6 months) and the batteries go bad you can not remove the bad batteries. Due to its compact design and solid aluminium case, if the batteries do go off and expand the keyboard is useless. Just had to throw mine away due to bad batteries. Not happy.

    Like I say though, gorgeous keyboard.. if you can swallow the exorbitant asking price.

    I have used this Keyboard for just over 7 months never really took to it Far to compact ones limited to the key function available just cant do all the application as you can with a USB wired keypad with extended key function, should you be more of a advance user you will want to throw it, such a shame Apple definitely missed out on this product.
    Functions sacrificed for styling 'Thats Apple'
    I have reverted back to a USB wired keyboard, loving it with all It's extended functions.

    Well . .

    To be honest its good being able to move and have it in your lap but it runs out of battery way too quickly and i would rather have the old keyboard. I put batteries in the key pad and mouse about once a month.

    • Written by from Folkestone

    OK for home use, but take the batteries out when not in use it seems to drain batteries even when the Mac is off

    Light and compact, but lacking in functionality.

    • Written by from London

    Beyond the obvious benefits of wireless technology, this keyboard unfortunately sacrifices too much functionality to achieve its slight, compact form.

    Fine for casual use, although anyone with average to large hands may find even this to be a struggle.

    It excludes a number of keys, which in my case is a deal-breaker.

    Lacking are: home/end, page up/down, delete and F13 keys, as well as numeric keyboard (with associated keys and layout)

    It also has a single ctrl key (on the left) instead of the usual two.

    Inadequate for workflows associated with a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and not great for number crunchers either.

    Good bit of kit except the 9 key

    • Written by from Seaton

    Great bit of kit but the keys do get grubby quickly. Using a pencil eraser seems to do the trick but this takes time.
    We have been using our keyboard daily for a about two years now and the only things that are really annoying are not having a delete forward button and the number 9 button seems to catch on something now which makes a click every time we use it.
    Otherwise It is well made, compact, nice to use and so long as you power down when you leave it for a few days, the batteries last for months.

    @ button in the wrong place

    • Written by from Chelmsford

    its all very well having this nice design and finish, but @ is in the wrong place and there is no delete button, which grinds my gears. After a few months of having it, I just want the extended version but its too long (and I havent looked into where @ is). Cant they just condense this one down so it includes all the extra buttons and fits in my clique dock. Having they keys half the size wouldn't bother me int the slightest.

    Wireless Keyboard design flaw

    • Written by from SURBITON

    I've had my wireless keyboard now for about 2 years. In essence it is fine but a design fault appears to be if and when the AA batteries inside corrode - they get stuck and seems impossible to them get out. It's a shame to have to keep replacing peripherals because of design flaws. I shall go back to an Apple wired keyboard when I visit the store tomorrow to replace it.

    No delete key

    • Written by from Coatbridge

    The delete key is probably one of the most used keys on any keyboard but it is not on this one. I am puzzled by Apple's leaving it out. Instead you have to use the mouse and backspace key.
