    Extremely disappointed.

    It should at least be said in the product description that this remote will only work with old generation iMac or Macbook that have IR integrated!
    The new generation Apple computers do not include IR, so that makes this remote a useless piece of junk.
    I love Apple and their products, but this is really disappointing.
    Nor is it a good way to make people buy an Apple TV to watch their medias comfortably.

    I'm very disappointed that this product doesn't work on the MacBook Pro with Retina display. The fact that it is hardly even mentioned anywhere on this website led me to purchase it, and while having good expectations about it, it turned out to be a useless piece of junk!

    I wish there was a zero star option!

    This is simply the worst apple device I have ever purchased. Nearly all of the positive reviews come from when Front Row was included. I've never seen or used front frontrow, but from the reviews, without front row (is not included, and there doesn't appear to be a way of purchasing it) the remote is irritating and extremely limited; that is assuming you can get anything other than play and skip to work. I really dislike it and wish I could get my money back.

    For a modern MACBook owner this remote is 'poo' don't waste your time or money.

    Do not buy.

    Useless without frontrow. Product description does not say anywhere that frontrow is no longer on the Lion operating system.

    Utterly Useless

    Since the removal of front row this remote has little use for me. It was great being able to control my music with big font from my bed!

    So since lion, my recommendation is don't bother buying it! And apple; please fix this??

    Good but...

    Whilst it may work with Front Row, Apple has chosen to axe Front Row from OS Lion!

    Too thin and too small

    I use this remote with my Apple TV and it is by far the worse remote I have ever owned. It is beautifully engineered but is far, far too thin and far too small. I spend at least 20 minutes looking for it every night. Tonight I have failed completely after searching for several hours. When I order a new one I will be taping it to something much larger.

    Even when it is in my possession, it will still magically disappear. In an instant it can slip between the cushions of the chair, under my leg or even under another sensibly sized remote.

    Absolutely hate it.
