      I've wanted a bluetooth Mac keyboard for years, but couldn't let go of the numeric keypad on my standard USB keyboard, so I was thrilled when this was released. I've wanted a bluetooth Mac keyboard for years, but couldn't let go of the numeric keypad on my standard USB keyboard, so I was thrilled when this was released. Just one day in and a few thoughts. The keys function well, but there are issues. The first is that the angle at which it sits on a desk is not ergonomically appropriate. The standard keyboard has a separate "bar" at the back that raises it up and allows it to sit on the desk at an angle; the Magic Keyboard sits almost flat, and I can almost feel the carpal tunnel forming in my wrists as I type this review. The second issue is minor, but significant. If you're like me, you slide the keyboard around to slightly different positions during the day — to take a call, swivel in your seat, etc. The base of this keyboard is very "sticky", and really doesn't slide. Obviously making it not sticky enough would be a problem while typing, but the old keyboard struck a good balance that this one lacks. Will I keep my new Magic Keyboard? Not sure yet.

      Better Than Nothing

      I always felt the tiny keyboard that came with the iMac was next to useless and would have replaced it with a Surface Keyboard, but it didn't play well with the I always felt the tiny keyboard that came with the iMac was next to useless and would have replaced it with a Surface Keyboard, but it didn't play well with the iMac. I also was not about to purchase a USB full sized keyboard from Apple when Bluetooth was available from every other manufacturer. So when Apple FINALLY came out with a full sized BT keyboard, albeit about 7 years late, I thought I would take the plunge. The overall character of the keyboard is excellent and quite superior to the original toy keyboard. The keys have enhanced soft 'click' to them that the original did not. I would describe it as more crisp than the original. I am finding I am already typing faster and with more accuracy. Now for the bad. Apple, in their continued obsolescence strategy has made the keyboard smaller than the original trackpad and mouse. So you have the option of buying new peripherals or living with it. I have no intention on using a mouse that: 1-has no right click key and 2-has the charging port on the bottom. I already replaced that with a white MX Master. The new trackpad may be worth getting when I have some money to waste. The biggest con for this keyboard is that there is no way to angle it up, so you are typing on essentially a flat surface. Thanks a lot, Tim! Ever hear of ergonomics? In summary, it is better than the original by quite a bit, but falls short on knocking it out of the park.

      Waaaaay better

Not only does it have the number pad but also lots of F keys for use with keyboard shortcuts. This is absolutely essential to me. The large arrow keys are much better. The charging via Lightning is much better then having to rely on double A batteries. Providing this option allowed them to do away with the old wired option that should have long since died. But no touch ID or touch bar options? That lowers the rating by about a star or two. This is still much better then the options provided by third party manufacturers who often had poor build quality. With the third party I had a button that would break off from even the slightest drop. Solar powered would often be a problem if I forgot to turn the keyboard off at night and the power ran down. This keyboard doesn't have that problem.

      It's okay but I returned it

      Key travel is needlessly shallow. Keys seems a little too close together. Plusses: Full size arrow keys. A proper delete key is on the keyboard. Easy to pair Key travel is needlessly shallow. Keys seems a little too close together. Plusses: Full size arrow keys. A proper delete key is on the keyboard. Easy to pair. Minus: Does not feel as good as the now disconunied wired keyboard that came with my Mac. And does not feel "worth" $129.00 + tax.

    • How does it connect? Wirelessly? Why the Thunderbolt to USB cable then?

      Answer

      Per the manual, you connect the keyboard to the mac using the included USB A to lightning cable, tur Per the manual, you connect the keyboard to the mac using the included USB A to lightning cable, turn on the keyboard. the mac will setup the Bluetooth pairing automatically, then you can unplug the cable and use it over Bluetooth. The USB to lightning cable is used for charging after that point (and I suspect, when pairing to a new computer/device).

    • How is this different than the old Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad?
      • Asked by Christopher C from Havertown

      Answer

      1. It's Bluetooth. The included USB/Lightning cable is used for initial pairing and charging only ( 1. It's Bluetooth. The included USB/Lightning cable is used for initial pairing and charging only (no removable/replaceable batteries!) 2. The new keyboard is slightly smaller than the old, wired Keyboard + NumPad. This is only a slight difference though and didn't take me long to get used to (I had to compare it with my old keyboard to even be sure that it actually was smaller - I had noticed it but didn't really feel it). 3. I think the new keyboard lies slightly flatter than the old, but I haven't actually compared this directly. Again, I have noticed it but not really felt it. Neither are adjustable in this respect of course. 4. The keys are "flatter". That is, each key is not as "tall" as the keys on the old keyboard and I think (though cannot be sure) that the travel is also reduced. This is the same/similar change as was made on the evolution of the keyboards on the MacBook/Pro. This was the most noticeable difference to me at first, and initially I was dismayed as I loved the travel and feel of the old keyboard. But again, I very quickly adjusted and actually now I'd say I prefer the new one. 5. It has an on/off switch on the rear edge at the right hand side. It's a very, very small switch and although I haven't read it anywhere, I suspect it is intended for when you transport the keyboard or anticipate not using it for an extended period as otherwise I would expect the keyboard to manage it's battery intelligently (e.g. turn off the BT radio if not used for a while). 6. It looks nicer. :) It is a solid, single "wedge" that really looks the business, especially when paired with a Magic Trackpad 2 which when placed directly alongside the keyboard - on either side - seamlessly extends it, as if it were all part of a whole. Very nice.
