    Sweet

    At first I wasn't sure about the new keyboard because it felt entirely different than my old one.
    After a month of using it I can hardly type on my old one! This new keyboard has a super feel and the keys have wonderful sensitivity. My old keyboard required about 1/4 inch of travel to enter data. The new one has far less travel but is not too "touchy".

    I like the following-
    1- low profile
    2- key travel
    3- USB port locations are superior to the old ones being on the rear.
    4- ease of cleaning.

    You'll love it. Really, a big leap in keyboard technology IMHO.

    MacBook for your desktop

    I fell in love with this keyboard on my MacBook, and finally bought the wired desktop version for my G4 to replace an aging Apple Pro Keyboard. In short, I love it. Amazingly crisp keystrokes, the short travel (either you love it or your hate it), and the lack of practically ANY chin make this keyboard a true winner. And, you can have all your function keys work just the way you're used to having them work with a click of the mouse in System Preferences, and the more useful controls are just a Fn keystroke away. A real winner.

    Also, works great with my Belkin Flip KVM.

    NOT FOR A TOUCH TYPIST

    This is the worst keyboard i have ever used in my profession. I find some keys do not work properly which means it now takes me twice as long to type something up - i have to go back because i cannot trust that the keyboard has actually written the keys i have pushed. If i tap on a certain key a few times in a row, it is bound to miss out one keystroke. I tested it.
    It is not ergonomic - being a touch typist i can type 100 wpm... it does hurt my wrist after i just typed this amount of text.
    Yes it is aesthetically gorgeous but i wish it would perform better as well as being ergonomically friendly :(
    I have gone from 100wpm to 20wpm! and i will be finding a new keyboard and tossing this one out.

    Great keyboard

    Because of the design and touch of this new keyboard , I more like using my new Mac mini which is a great product too that enable me to have 2 computers (OS & win) with so little space.

    Excellent

    This keyboard just arrived in the mail and I love the super feel to it. I was previously working on a G4 keyboard but the short depth to each key is exactly like working on a laptop key and so little effort is needed to type. The keys snap quickly back into place for a super quick type.
    And it looks great too.

    Love it!

    I love this Keyboard! Not only does it look wonderful - It's easy to type on too. I do think you'll either LOVE this keyboard or hate it.. But I LOVE it and i can't stand typing on those huge cluncky keyboards anymore.

    quiet, comfortable

    This keyboard is a big improvement over the older style apple keyboard. I'd say is the best keyboard I've ever used. It is very quiet and very comfortable to use. The action on the keys is very nice. Plus, it looks great!

    Best keyboard I've ever owned!

    Got this keyboard recently to use when I have my macbook pro plugged into my 23" display. It is by far the best keyboard ive ever owned or typed upon. They keys are very crisp, and super light which means you hardly need to press at all when you type making it extra fast. The built in two port usb hub is very handy, especially with a laptop that only has 2 usb ports. Great for plugging in a mouse, usb drives, cameras, etc.

    Excellently designed product (it really is beautiful), and a pleasure to type on.

    Not just a pretty face

    When I first saw this keyboard, I thought "Wow! Looks cool - I wonder if you can actually type on it?". Well... I've had it for just under 3 weeks now, and I can honestly say that it's the best keyboard I've ever used.

    So, if you're a bit nervous about the radically different design of this keyboard, don't be. You'll be up to speed in next to no time, and you'll never look back.

    Congratulations, Apple, on (yet again) designing something that looks amazing AND performs amazingly.

    Works with Vista fine

    Got the keyboard today to replace my old apple KB - I dont have a mac but love the keyboards - and it works fine on my PC running Vista32 bit and yes even the apple keys - all you need is the boot camp msi and a reboot and it all works fine, if you get something like sharp keys you can even remap most keys. Superb KB to use and worth it even for us PC users.

    2 Thumbs Up

    Without a doubt, this is the best keyboard I've ever used. It's comfortable, spacious, responsive and feels solid. I've had no problem syncing my iPod Nano through it. The function keys are good.

    Low Power Warning - USB 2.0 ports a con!

    Great keyboard, however the reason I bought it was for the convenience of the USB 2.0 port for connecting my iPod, camera etc. When I plug these in I get a "Low Power Warning", and they don't work. Customer support now tells me that you actually need a Mac built in 2007 or later (?) to be able to run the keyboard ports as "2.0 high powered ports" and that my May 2006 computer will not be able to do so. Apparently the published minimum requirements:
    • Mac computer with available USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 port
    • Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later
    • Keyboard software update
    are required for the keyboard to work - not the USB ports. This is a joke! There are no publicly available articles that state this apparently, so not sure how the paying public are meant to make an appropriately informed decision before purchasing the advertised product. Anyway be warned.

    Not happy.

    CAPS Lock

    Re comment about space bar i have the same problem with caps lock. Apart from that its works fine. Note USB does not have enough power to run a memory drive.

    sweetness

    Sleek sexy, and compact. Some of all of apple's features, simply put into one keyboard. Anyway, I am a user of apple's bootcamp, and i am very dissapointed that there are not drivers out yet for the ability to use the keyboard's volume controls on the keyboard. But aside from that i like the way that apple switched the help key with fn. so, yea. highly recommend, and instead of a push, just.. tap

    Electric shocks

    I love my new keyboard, it's beautiful, slim (but the buttons haven't been sacrificed in size).

    My only problem is that I'm getting electric shocks from it. I'm getting shocked on average 10 times a day. It's when I leave and then come back to my keyboard. Is my keyboard telling me that I shouldn't ever leave it? Please, someone tell me if this is normal or if I should send my keyboard back? I've had it about 1 week now.

    I give it a 5 out of 5 but if it didn't give me shocks maybe it'd give it a 6.

    keyboard ok lar

    The keyboard is nice to type on and typing speed would surely increase. One issue with it is that I am using this with my mbp and some how or rather like it's being grounded properly. I get static almost every sentence I type. End up I have to get a silicon cover for it.

    One thing is for sure typing without the cover is much nicer.

    Hope I am the only with this issue.

    FANTASTIC!!!

    This is the best keyboard that I've ever owned! So thin, yet solid. Very comfortable to use. I swear I can type faster! And silent. Everyone who sees it wants to touch it and then want one too! Another great one Apple!

    Briliant.

    This keyboard knocks spots off the normal white keyboard - or any other keyboard out there for that matter. The key touch is soft and precise and feels similar to the Macbook. The stainless steel and white design compliments the white iMac nicely. The keyboard itself is reasonably heavy incase you're wondering if it's going to be too flimsy given its small size. Feels like quality - which it is.

    FASTER TYPING

    BEFORE I GOT THE KEYBOARD, MY TYPING WAS FAIRLY SLOW, BUT AFTER A WEEK OR TWO OF USING IT, MY TYPING HAS IMPROVED A LOT!!!! THIS WOULD BE A GREAT KEYBOARD FOR A KID TO LEARN TYPING ON!!! IT WAS A LITTLE ANNOYING HAVING TO INSTALL A KEYBOARD UPDATE FOR THE TOP BUTTONS, BUT I REALLY LIKE HAVING PLAY/PAUSE KEYS FOR MY MUSIC SO I DONT HAVE TO GO INTO ITUNES TO SWITCH A SONG.
