    I love this keyboard!!!!

    5 stars all the way!!! I love this thing. Looks great, I can type just as fast on it as other keyboards as I do look at the keyboard fairly often. It's easy to clean, quiet, thin, works perfectly...what else do you need?? I like how quiet it is, no more CLAKKITY CLAKKITY, it's just a simple click now. The one real thing I dont like is that they took the apple sign off of the "command" key and replaced it with the "command" word. Best keybaord I have ever used. Great job APPLE!!!!

    Awesome

    This is the best keyboard in the world. The nice responsive feel, the crisp clean look, and the thin style of the apple keyboard make any mac person without one, jelous.

    Aluminum + Apple = Yummy

    I bought the keyboard, admittedly, because it matches my Apple Cinema Display and PowerMac really well (in other words, its sexy). But it feels sexy too. Trust me, if you can type, you will love this even more! I can type 75 to 100WPM and this keyboard keeps up no problem.

    I also have no problem syncing my iPod shuffle on it. Haven't tried my full size iPod yet - I've read that it doesn't work. I have a feeling it will. :)

    amazing

    This is by far the easiest and most well designed keyboards I have ever worked on. I love the design, having a nerve disorder in my right arm and hand, and designing 14 hours a day. It has made an immense difference in the short time that I have been using it. A MUST HAVE for anyone that spends s ton of time on the mac, which is probably 90% of designers.

    Another Great Product - A+

    Apple again has come up with a great product. This keyboard works great. The USB hub works with all of my devices ( No idea why people say it doesnt?) I cant wait till the wireless version comes out.. I liked this keyboard so much I purchased 3 of them to replace my regular keyboard for my Windows Desktops..

    2015 MacBook Pro 13 Retina does recognize this keyboard

    Not even the latest 2015 MacBook Pro 13 Retina with El Capitan does recognize this keyboard in System Preferences - Keyboard - Change Keyboard Type and returns "Your keyboard cannot be identified.".

    Great Key Action

    We have had one of these for quite a while on our home computer, and it works fine except for one thing: the "r" key occasionally pops off the base and you have to snap it back on. (There have been some complaints here about quality control.) Unfortunately, I never bothered to take it back, even though it happened within the first week or two we owned the thing.

    I just bought another for my work machine, and the quality control issues seem to have been solved. It's a handsome piece of equipment. I love the key action. And everything stays where it's supposed to. So much better than the old Apple white extended keyboard, which was stiffening up beyond my ability to clean it. I can fly on this baby!

    I only wish it came wireless with Bluetooth.

    Almost perfect

    I've had my wired Apple keyboard with number pad for a few days now and I have to say I think it's a marked improvement on the wireless variety which it replaced.

    The thing I don't really understand is why haven't Apple produced this keyboard in a wireless version for users that would prefer it.

    For my part the cable doesn't trouble me in anyway whatsoever with the exception that it takes up a USB port on my iMac but as pretty much everything else I use is wireless it's not an issue for me and considering I no longer have to be concerned with battery power/replacement and the occasional bluetooth disconnect this just isn't an issue, at least not for me. I suppose it would be more aesthetically pleasing without the cable but hey ho I think the advantages that this keyboard offers over the wireless version far outweigh any disadvantages.

    My only gripe is that although it's very pleasing to the eye as it is it would be better if it had the same profile as the wireless keyboard but only because it would then be a better match for the trackpad, perhaps an option for Apple to consider would be to produce a trackpad that matches this keyboard ... merely a suggestion ... I'm very happy with it the way it is.

    Amazing...

    This keyboard is really good. It works like a charm. I use it with my MacBook, and the sleek design almost makes me forget I'm using anything. My only comment is that this keyboard does not work with PC's, at least the number pad. It deserves 5 stars... Yea for Apple!

    "I command things to be awesome... awesome keyboard!"

    I fell in love with this keyboard the minute at first sight. It's got all I had been looking for... small, simple, soft keys... The option to plug in other USB devices is great. I use it to charge my mobile headset via USB.

    If you're using windows XP as I am, you can install SharpKeys (RandyRants.com) to assign windows specific keys to the keyboard. For example, you can use it to bind NumLock to the Clear key on the keyboard. Not sure if there's a version for Vista, yet.

    Unexpectedly Great

    I write a ton on my Mac and because of this, no doubt, I have regular pain in my back and my wrist. When I first saw this keyboard, I thought it was a mistake; I saw another move whereby Apple makes things tiny and thin, and thought it was perhaps a liability on a keyboard.

    My girlfriend bought it, and I used it for a day. The light touch, quiet sound, and even the improvement in speed I feel in my typing meant that the next day I was visiting the Apple Store. I love this keyboard!

    Who knew a keyboard could be so lovely?

    MMM..love this new keyboard. I only bought it b/c the original keyboard got ruined. I was not expecting something so pleasing. Typing on it is extremely smooth, especially compared to the old keyboard. The special keys for iTunes/iMovie, dashboard, etc. are very handy. The USB ports are also a very useful considering my Mac only has 3 ports. My hands will not be cramping as much when writing lengthy papers. Apple did a super job!

    Slick And Functional!

    as a programmer i spend a lot of time jamming on my board - i'm thrilled by the softer keys, the built in expose and iTunes function keys (although i do need my F12 regularly ;)).
    I've got the new keyboard paired with the last generation imac - still looks good altogether, ha.
    Love the slim profile, makes my desk feel less cluttered, which in turns frees my mind a bit more to focus on the work at hand.
    excellent product!

    Ultimate keybaord for hunt and peck typists

    If you're a two finger typist this is the best keyboard you've ever used, period. No long travel keys and exactly the right amount of tactile response. You can seriously fly typing on this thing - way way way faster than the previous white gen of the Apple keyboard. This keyboard rocks!

    Stunning

    After a bad experience with Apple's new wireless keyboard (which Apple have since modified through an update), I'm pleased to be using it's wired cousin. The keyboard has minimal footprint, but is very easy to type on as it's extremely heavy. It also sports two USB connectors which are ideal for a wired mouse and USB memory card and/or digital camera.

    I only have two quibbles with this keyboard. Firstly it's angled at about 10 degrees towards the user. There is no option to flatten this or angle it away from the user (which I'm told is better).

    The second point might seem irrelevant. However this keyboard is as much about aesthetics, as it is about practicality. The belly of the keyboard and the connecting wire are both white. Apple have not followed their black and aluminum style completely, and the keyboard looks slightly like an odd match. Almost like a 3rd party product that's designed to look like the Mac range. I'm surprised that Apple didn't go for a chrome braid wire or use black for the plastic belly of the keyboard.

    There's also no backlit keyboard option although I would not expect this at the price of this keyboard. Overall, a beautiful piece of industrial design that makes everyone feel good.

    Surprisingly great ergonomics and response

    This keyboard is great for my MBP.
    While I love being able to travel around with my laptop, at work it's nice to have a "real" keyboard, complete with a numbers pad (I do a lot of data entry). I was skeptical that a keyboard so thin would have good responsiveness in the keys, but this works great. Even better, it fits nicely into my large computer bag. It's hard to realize just how thin it is from the online photos, but in person it is remarkable.

    wonderful!

    If you're looking to get a different feel to your typing experience - try this. I went to an Apple store to try it out and thought, yeah, this is good. Now at home I think it's much better than good; it's excellent. Seems to me the engineers behind this did their research: what is needed in a keyboard? What might a different typing experience be like? It's smooth, fast, springy, tight, elegant, slim, and feels surprisingly strong for such a thin tool. Leaves my old G4 keyboard with the large keys and deep touch in the dust. Just enough give in the keys to make it a hit, and nothing more. Less fatigue and fewer mistakes. Well done, Apple.

    Like it

    I have a MacBook and the keyboard is very similar to thekeybpard on it. The keys are very easy to type on. The accidental caps lock guard is a nice touch as well. I have the wired one and the usb ports on the side are awesome. Simple. I love it.
