    The best small keyboard out there

    • Written by THOMAS D M from ASHEVILLE

    I am a liker of small, notebook-feel keyboards. I guess most people who have reviewed this keyboard are not. It takes a little getting used to, and I mean very little - like the first hour or two. I like it so much better than the Logitech I got to replace my first magic keyboard, which died on me. If you're a coder or somebody who's used to big keyboards, I wouldn't recommend. I love it.

    Upgraded my Apple Keyboard to New Magic Keyboard

    • Written by Marcella Z from Exmore

    The new Magic Keyboard is wonderful, no problems with my MacPro finding it. The flatter design has helped me type better and there is less stress on my wrists. My original Apple keyboard stuck it out with me for 4 years without a problem. This is a great keyboard and very easy to adapt to. Thank you Apple.

    I Approve!

    • Written by Joy E from Tuscaloosa

    I recently just bought one of these due to the fact my laptop was mishandled at the airport & now I have a messed up screen :/. I needed a keyboard that I could use w/ my iPad just in case I needed to use Microsoft Word since I can't bring my laptop anywhere anymore. By surprise, I found out that it was also compatible wi/ my laptop even though it's a Dell & runs Windows 10 (minus the use of f keys) so this is also a plus for me! I really appreciate how portable this keyboard is; it's very light, doesn't add too much weight & it's not bulky. I also like the fact that this things battery lass FOREVER!!!! I had this thing for almost 4 days & it's still on 100% since then; I'm thoroughly impressed! IThe only issue that I've encountered thus far is that I have to hit "forget device" then reconnect every time I try to use my computer that's now plugged in via HDMI or when I'm trying to connect to my iPad. It's a minor inconvenience, but I can deal w/ that; I'm glad I made the purchase.

    So sleek!

    • Written by Scott M from Lake Station

    I often wish I could climb into the computer and see who's writing bad reviews. My guess, Apple's competitors. I love reviews and I love writing reviews! This is a no brainer. I honestly don't see how you could give this less than 5 stars. Now the price is hefty, but you knew that going in. I got this in Thailand so that I could get the English and Thai letters, as I am learning Thai. I have to say...its stunning!!! I got the new trackpad to go with and while they set me back $280 over here they are worth it to me. So, so brilliant.
    I am the furthest thing from a homer and I have been the first to call out Apple on things I've disliked, folks, they got this one right!

    Best keyboard ever, it feels so relaxing to type compared to the last one

    • Written by Juan Sebastian C from Tuluá

    The keys are bigger but have a smaller travel, so it requires less effort, which is not obvious for one little press, but hours and thousands of words later, your fingers actually feel grateful (lol).

    Not having to change batteries is also a big benefit, because as an Apple user, I have lightning cables everywhere.

    Yep. Into it.

    • Written by daniel T from Fitzroy

    Entirely prefer of using this little fella in favour of the older model. Downside was a couple of hours mistyping here-and-there but after I got used to the slightly different key spacing it was all smooth sailing. Maybe not magic but definitely darn fine.

    The keys feel great!

    • Written by Donald S from Rio Rancho

    I always loved the keys on my Macbook Pro. I told people it was the greatest keyboard that I had ever used. I was disappointed when I bought the wireless keyboard as the keys just didn't have the same feel and they made a lot of noise when typing. While this one still makes a bit of noise, the keys feel much nicer and don't take as much force to use. I really like this keyboard. I haven't had it long enough to comment on battery life or anything, but I'm sure that will be fine too. I'll report back if I find something that I don't like, but for now, I love this keyboard.

    Great buy !

    • Written by Vincent E from Quebec

    I just bought the new Magic Keyboard 2 and it feels great ! I will be using it at school, home and anywhere on the go with my Macbook Pro Retina. The keys feel very nice and does not require a lot of force to be pushed. The keyboard is not too noisy. It is very easy to configure with the Mac and I think that using the lightning port for charging is a great compatibility advantage compared to batteries. Definitely worth it !

    A fantastic keyboard

    • Written by Maxime R from London

    Things I like:
    - The key-feel and overall typing experience is the best I've come across - and I've gone through a fair few chiclet / cherry mx / topre keyboards in my quest for typing perfection! This keyboard is quiet and free of annoying 'clacks' (which some keyboards are bad for; particularly with the space bar), however on firmer key presses there is a satisfying click as the key bottoms out. The key travel is (imo) excellent; not far enough to cause strain to the wrists as I have experienced after extended use of mechanical keyboards, however long enough to feel the key register properly (unlike perhaps the newer MacBook Pros' keyboards).
    - The key layout (on the British English variant in my case) is also great - particularly, I like how Apple places the backslash / vertical pipe key (\|) to the left of the enter key (which makes writing LaTeX and shell scripts much more ergonomic) as well as the position of the tilde / backtick key (~`) under the left pinky (rather than in the top left which is often a bit of a stretch). While the physical surfaces of the keys are flat (some folks prefer them slightly concave; I don't mind), the surface available to type on is very large (larger than most mechanical keys caps) which has increased my typing accuracy and speed somewhat. The glorious size of the escape key will also please vim users who haven't re-mapped it to something else already :)
    - Setup is a breeze, with no configuration to do for both MacOS and Linux when using the lightning to USB cable. Bluetooth setup on both operating systems is equally trivial and pain free.

    Things I don't like:
    Perhaps the construction could be slightly sturdier; there is a slight flex in the keyboard although that said, I appreciate the portability and lightness.

    A bit pricy but good all around keyboard

    • Written by Hayden K from Greensboro

    This keyboard had a great range and a good build quality. It is very easy to use and connect with your Mac or IOS device. It is very sleek and has a great minimalistic look, while still being comfortable to type on. Battery life is perfect, this will last weeks without charging. My only complaint is the price, $100 and $130 (space grey) is a bit steep for a keyboard especially one that's not backlit. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a minimalist look for their work environment and ease of connectivity and use with no extra cords or bluetooth receivers to plug in. Just be ready to pay a premium price or buy one used like I did!

    Best keyboard I've ever used

    • Written by Jules-Pierre M from Rigaud

    This is by far the best keyboard I've ever used on any platform. It's not painful on the wrists. Your hands don't have to be poised at an awkward angle to type, and it has much improved my word count per minute. I have 3 different PCs set up in my home office (2 Apple and 1 Windows-based), and I can simply float this keyboard between all of them. Nevertheless, I'm buying two more so I don't have to. Battery life is also very good.

    Surprised!

    • Written by Richard H from Thornhill

    Before upgrading my 8-year old iMac to a new one I read the reviews for the latest Magic Keyboard. (I had thought of buying it as a portable keyboard to take along with my iPad.) Many of the reviews were quite negative, plus I do not like working on laptops. So, it was with a certain amount of trepidation that I fired up my new iMac and prepared to use the keyboard.

    To my surprise, I really like this keyboard. It's easier to use than the old Magic Keyboard: I don't have to keep a supply of batteries on hand and I can type faster on it. Did it take a little time to adjust to the different feel? Yes, but that's not unusual. (And, when I play the odd game like pinball, the board doesn't move around. I assume that, in part, is due to the lower elevation angle.) In addition, it doesn't weigh much and is ideal for toting around to use with my iPad.

    Great product, easy to use and setup.

    • Written by Mathew S from Gold coast

    This KB is awesome. I am a programmer by trade with the new MacBook Pro. The keys on the MacBook Pro tend to get stuck at times. I switched to this keyboard and haven't regretted the change. The keyboard is lightweight and very easy to get used to. The keys have a good amount of spring before the physical push is made. You can hit the space bar at any point and it will still recognise the key strike. Great job Apple.

    Great with my iPad

    • Written by Roger H from PRETTY BEACH

    I purchased this keyboard to use on the go with my iPad when I have more to write than I can comfortably manage with the virtual keyboard. For the last 6 years I have been using the standard Apple Bluetooth keyboard with my iPads, but I decided I would like something more convenient to travel with. I have been able to try any number of keyboards that my friends and colleagues use with their iPads. After reading many keyboard reviews and trying the Magic Keyboard out at the Apple shop In Sydney, I decided it would meet my needs better than a smaller keyboard that closely matched the profile of the iPad. I purchased a keyboard cover (Canopy by Studio Neat). The whole set up is excellent. The keyboard is flatter than the old wireless keyboard and the keys have a slightly different feel. I like both the angle and the feel, and happily type with the set up on my lap or on a table/desk.
    I recently sold my MacBook Pro and this rig replaces it for all basic mobile computing needs simply and effectively.
    I does exactly what I need it to do, and exactly what it claims to do.

    Excellent

    • Written by Connor C from Dukinfield

    I have used this keyboard everyday for around six months and it feels great to type on. I have used it not only with my Mac but my iPad also whilst in college. I would definitely recommend to anyone who does a lot of writing. The only issue is that the Caps lock key isn't the best as you have to press slightly harder than the others.

    A Magic Experience.

    • Written by Neil S from Heanor

    I've had my eye on the new Magic Keyboard since they were announced and have finally gotten around to purchasing one.

    Granted the shallower keys take some time to adjust to but I have to say the wider buttons in a smaller body are very much welcome.

    Feels solidly made and like the fact I can charge my Keyboard whilst using it still-and that if I ever lose my original Lightning Cable I can use one of the spare ones from my iPhone/iPod/iPad.

    Would've been nice to have a backlit option (perhaps in Space Grey) but those are minor quibbles.

    Perfect Norwegian/Swedish developer keyboard

    • Written by Richard O from Lindås, Krossleitet 2d

    This keyboard has many "easy" shortcuts to developer characters such as "{", "}". I really often do programming with my MacBook Air wich is using this keyboard and it is awesome that it is so easy to get to the characters I want compared with other keyboard layouts.
