    I absolutely love it!!!!

    I picked this keyboard up at the apple store to go with my new mac mini. It has all the functions you could need on a keyboard plus it looks amazing with my mac. Everyone who has seen it has been amazed at how thin this keyboard is. Even though it is really thin, it is sturdy and strong because it is made out of aluminum. This is a great keyboard and I highly recommend it!

    Great Keyboard

    I love the small footprint. I love how everything fits perfectly in the small footprint without looking cluttered at all. The keyboard is setup very nicely with perfectly spaced keys and inconspicuous toggle buttons. Definitely an upgrade from the previous Apple Keyboard.

    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.

    Excellent accessory

    This is perhaps the nicest overhaul of any component or accessory I've seen in many a moon. I love the (almost) flat profile; the steadiness (no slipping and sliding); and the tactile feel of the keys (almost like typing on a flat desktop surface).

    In short, I'm sold. I'd like to see the wireless version when it's full-grown. For now, this is near-perfect.

    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

    one of the best keyboards

    This could be the best keyboard I've ever had the pleasure to type with.

    I've been a software engineer for the past 22 years and I must say I am very impressed with the feel of this keyboard.

    It feels solid, has just the right amount of keyboard clatter (subjective to preference) but most important feature is that it lies really flat on the desk and coupled with its solidness feel plus the texture of the keys provides for a very pleasing experience.

    You almost feel like you want to type more and more and faster and faster. I don't know what it is but just feel s right.

    Enjoy

    Definitely a fine upgrade

    I've been using their various keyboard since 2003. This by far is the best one they've designed to date. Over the years I've always compared various keyboards to the Thinkpad's I used before going over to Apple completely. I feel that Apple has finally beaten the Thinkpad keyboard with this offering. The keys move with just the right amount of feedback, while remaining almost silent. Much better than previous models that had the distinctive clicking sound to them. Makes the last model feel like a dinosaur. My question to Apple is 'How will you top this one?"

    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!

    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!

    The Best!!

    Hands down, by far, the best full size keyboard that I have ever used. USB ports work great with my external hard drive, mouse, etc. My only recommendation would be is to buy one as soon as possible and you will see.

    Is it art or is it just a keyboard?

    It's both. Truly a comfort to type on - the keyboard looks amazing atop the surface of my desk.... an inconsequential piece of technology taken to the next level. Bravo.

    deffinate A+

    This keyboard is great! it's a very natural keyboard packed into a compact and sleek design. it's doesn't take up much desk space and it's easy to get used to, which is rare for smaller keyboards. It has everything my first mac's keyboard had (volume buttons, 2 usb ports, ect.) but it's 10x more stylish- deffinate A+!
    If your looking for a replacement keyboard or just an upgrade for your mac desktop, this is the best keyboard for it!

    Amazing!

    This is a sleek and beautiful keyboard. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and I've found that I can type more quickly than on my old Apple keyboard (Bluetooth). I wish this keyboard was wireless, but not a big deal. Recommended...

    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.

    Awesome!!

    I just bought this when I upgraded to Leopard. The price is great for $49 and I love the additional usb ports on the side of the keyboard. My sister bought one last month and I loved the way the keys are spaced a little wider than the unit that came with my iMac. For someone with thick fingers this works great! It types very smooth and flows a lot better. I highly recommend it, especially if you own a Mac!

    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.
