    MacBook Tiger User

    I am a student who has a White Macbook with the 2.16 Intel, and the 120 GB HDD. I am running 10.4.11, and was worried about the function keys. I bought the keyboard, and was thrilled to find out that the sync was seamless. I am a fairly heavy typer, and I tend to slam the speacebar. Even with the thin profile, this keyboard will take every punch of the key. I have never been so comfortable typing on any keyboard. The Keys move flawlessly, the layout is ideal, and the dual USB Ports allow for a mouse on either side, when my left handed brother needs to use it. I am amazed at how little it costs, and I HIGHLY recommend it for ANY Mac user, who types a fair amount.

    Match made in heaven

    I have this keyboard at work. I was skeptical at first, but the multi-media (Function) keys rock. I can start and pause songs in iTunes even when it's not the active window. The only bad thing is now I want to replace my PC style keyboard on my Mac at home. Santa, please...

    Fabulous Keyboard Much Better Than My Apple Wired One

    I ordered this keyboard and got it in five days, and I'm in Canada and it is only 4 weeks to Christmas, so thought that was pretty darn good. Keyboard itself is lovely - attractive matte aluminum on the top with two USB ports. It was very easy to hook up to my laptop external display screen and the mouse plugs into the right side of the keyboard - since I'm right-handed this is perfect. The keys are flat and I love the touch - they have the same high tech feel as the keys on my laptop but much easier to use. The angle of this keyboard is almost flat on the desk and my wired Apple keyboard had the back of it almost two inches off the desk, so it had more of an angle than my new aluminum one, but I had no problem getting used to it.

    What I really love is that the keys cover the holes and there is not much room around them. Even though I was compulsive about keeping stuff away from my other keyboard, and I almost never ate while at the computer, after a while my wired keyboard somehow got a surprising amount of small stuff (crumbs, cat hair, dust bits, etc.) underneath the keys and I couldn't get it out. I also really like that this is a full size keyboard with the number palette on the right, because I use my keyboard across the corner of my desk and it needs to be long in order to sit diagonally across the 90 degree corner. I also feel that the price is very reasonable for such a nice accessory. The set-up was really easy, follow instructions and the download was quick and easy. Often I take my exterior keyboard with me if I take my computer somewhere, and this one is thin and light, and a joy to put in my computer case.

    I'm a very fast typist, with all ten fingers the old fashioned way, and this keyboard keeps up with me no problem.

    Great - Prefer to the wireless version.

    I tried the wireless version and could not get used to the thing. Kept putting fingers in wrong locations and it felt cramped. Some keys moved around as well, had to keep stopping to think about how to adapt to the thing.

    I took it back and got the wired keyboard for my Mac Pro and everything is in it's place, the keyboard absolutely flies, and the flatness is great, just love it. Best keyboard I've ever used, no question.

    BEST! KEYBOARD! EVER!

    Seriously, I love the keys on my MacBook, and when I found out I could have them on my Mac Pro I just had to have it. Excellent in all aspects!

    I just can't stop typing ...

    okay, i hate typing. I can't stand it. I just can't believe how much I like this keyboard. It is very satisfying. It is just perfect. You really feel like you are accomplishing something when you press the keys. They new function keys are great too -- dashboard, etc. I love this keyboard.

    Wonderful Surprise!

    My nearest Apple Store is, unfortunately, a couple of hours away. When they released this keyboard, I had no way of going on a road trip to try it out. I purchased a MacBook Pro when they were updated in June, and I've longed for an external keyboard ever since. The MBP Keyboard is fine, but I wanted a full number pad along with the home, end, delete, and page up/down buttons. I thought about purchasing the older Apple Keyboard but decided to hold off for a bit. I sure am happy I did! The Apple Keyboard was certainly something a bit new when I first laid eyes on it. I was also most certainly a skeptic; I did not think that it would be that great of a keyboard. However, I purchased it online anyway. I am VERY pleased with my purchasing decision. The Keyboard is very sturdy, and quite a bit heavier than I had imagined. It's a true wonder to type on. With the shorter distance the keys must travel, it seems like my typing speed has vastly improved.

    All in all, this keyboard is a great buy. The sheer fact that it matched my MBP isn't even a factor, this keyboard could be black and gold for all I care; it is simply the best keyboard I have ever used.

    If you have an Apple Store nearby, go check this thing out. If you don't, buy it online anyway. You will not regret it!

    Good Keyboard Until It Stops Working

    I've had my Apple USB Keyboard with Numeric Keypad for 17 months. It worked great until yesterday when, inexplicably, the 'esc, tilde, tab, and caps lock' keys simultaneously stopped working. My wife has the same keyboard, which I plugged into my MacBook Pro to confirm that my computer was not the source of the problem . . . it wasn't. I tried all of the other tests suggested by online techies to no avail. So, now it appears that I have to go out and buy a new keyboard. I thought Apple products were engineered to last more than 17 months . . . not so, I guess.

    Amazing Keyboard

    This is definitely my favorite keyboard of all time. I've purchased 3 or 4 over the years for my various computers, and it has never disappointed. The keys have the perfect amount of travel, and the widely spaced arrow keys are great for gaming. The USB ports on the side are excellent for a wireless mouse dongle or a speaker. It's also well-built, durable, and looks great. I can't recommend it enough!

    Dysfunctional Space Key

    I have found the space key on my brand new keyboard to be dysfunctional. It does not recognize my right thumb when it hits the key. The stroke is recognized only when my thumb is perfectly centered on the keyboard or a I use my left thumb, thus I say this is not a writers keyboard. Ernest Hemingway would have used this thing for target practice and I'm considering switching to a typewriter too.

    Doesn't Always Work

    This would be an amazing keyboard if when you connected it it worked. I use this keyboard in a docking station type set-up with my laptop. As Apple doesn't actually offer a docking station, I had to create my own. I use a macbook pro 13 inch retina. I plug this keyboard in and out depending on where I am working, at my desk or on the move. However, the keyboard (or my mac) fairly regularly fails to recognize the fact that the keyboard is plugged in. Restarts don't work. Plugging and unplugging doesn't work. The extension cable that people suggest worked for a bit then stopped. Above all Apple tech support couldn't help. I highly recommend staying away from this keyboard if you plan on using it with a laptop. It could be great, but isn't. :/

    AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE

    USB keyboard is not Apple's finest product, it does NOT just work!!!
    It regularly stops working requiring all sorts of workarounds.
    Just google it and observe the extreme frustration observed by many users.
    An unreliable product that should be avoided at all cost to avoid raising your blood pressure.
    Substandard quality not up to what we expect of Apple.
    AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE

    Works well...

    Is the same technology used in the MacBooks laptops and works well. The Keyboard that came with my iMac 17in worked fine, but the keys began to stick and I found no solution to that; cleaning etc didn't help. This is the first time I've replaced a keyboard because I wore one out... and I'm pleased with this one. I would buy it again.

    Awesome Keyboard!

    After seeing this keyboard in the store and how thin it actually was, I knew that it was time to upgrade to this one. The keyboard is much more comfortable to type on and it is very quiet, much quieter than the previous version. The various functions are in different places , but it can be changed to behave like the previous version . Great job Apple!

    Great Working Product!!!

    I bought this product a couple days ago because I am using my macbook for a desktop. (My macbook screen is broken). I hooked it up to my computer and it worked great! I see all of these reviews about people who do not like the seperated keys because they are not use to them. I will tell you right now, if you have a Macbook these are the same keys and it will work great. I love the 2 USB ports on the side so I can hook my other electronics up to it!

    All and all this is a great product!
