    Buy the US version, Not UK or International!

    The shift button and enter button are TINY on the UK and International versions! I assumed the key layouts would be similar, but it's actually a different design to the US version.. I live in Aus but I'm returning my UK version for a US version so I can reach these critical keys.. WEIRD. Check the photos of the different versions carefully before buying!!

    Good, but could be better for the price.

    I love the look of my Space Grey Keyboard. It matches better with my desk setup then the original white/silver one. And I can type really fast with it.

    However, there's no reason why a $199 CAD keyboard should not have backlighting. At the very least, you should be able to use this keyboard in a dark office. But instead, you'll need a light. My second issue with this keyboard is the Lightning port. It's not good for those who own a MacBook Pro with a LG Ultra Fine Monitor (neither have USB A ports). You'll either have to get a "white" lightning to USB C cable to charge it (because there's no Black USB C to Lighting cables), or charge using one of those iPhone power adapters. It wouldn't be bad if the Keyboard came with a USB A to USB C adapter for those with a MacBook Pro setup (which is probably the market for those buying a stand alone keyboard). Sadly they don't. So if you're getting this for your MacBook Pro, hopefully you have a USB A power adapter.

    Another feature I wish this had was a device switch. I also use this keyboard with my iPad Pro, and it's annoying to have to make it forget one device, so I can use it with my MacBook Pro. A device switch would be great, so I can switch it between devices without any extra work.

    Last, I wish they offered the smaller one in Space Grey. This one is kinda bigger then I need it to be. And I wish you guys would make a Touch Bar version. I don't care if you gotta make it bigger with more batteries to power it. You need more ergonomic options anyways. Might as well make a big ergonomic one, with force touch and touch bar built in.

    Excellent keyboard

    Astonishingly beautiful and exceptionally convenient keyboard. Aluminum in space grey looks and feels amazing. I love its low profile, full-sized arrow and functional keys, and finally the keypad on the bluetooth model.

    The only letdown is the price difference with the white keyboard. The same models of MacBooks and iPhones in different colors have the same price. I suppose that there can be a difference in the manufacturing process, but I am sure that Apple already charges a good premium on all the products and could avoid passing it onto the customer. I do not mind the price itself, but the difference does not feel nice.

    Fantastic keyboard. Annoying that it's not USB-C.

    This review would be 5 stars is the keyboard came with USB-C charging. I have a new MacBook Pro that is USB-C powered and it would be nice if I didn't have to have another type of cable at my desk.

    Other than that, the keyboard is amazing. The keys are brilliant to type on. It looks spectacular next to my space grey MacBook.

    It's ok, but

    They keyboard needs more of an angle. It's too flat and there is no adjustment. For the price, it should be back-lit. There are cheaper alternatives (non Apple) that are back-lit.
