    Best Wired Keyboard Ever

    I've used lots of keyboards with a variety of computers. This is the easiest to use and most aesthetic keyboard I've had my hands on, except maybe it's wireless cousin. I bought both and have no regrets. In fact they are both extremely pleasing and worth the money.

    Form and function -- AN AMAZING KEYBOARD!

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD! It's design is, well... Apple... genius of the refined aesthetic. It is the embodiment of the whole notion that less is more.... like a Danish Modern piece of furniture. It's really so nice to look at. From a functional perspective, it's pretty darn perfect as well. For me, anyway. Why didn't anyone think thin like this before? It's ergonimally so much better suited to work with human hands... no need for any additional props to lift your wrist up to achieve a comfortable position.. You just lay your hands on the desk where they naturally fall, and and this keyboard gently supports them... simply amazing...... simply, perfect.

    I Can't Complain

    I LOVE this keyboard, even though I have Windows Vista. I go through keyboards fairly quickly, so the price is a DEFINITE plus! This is not by any means an advanced keyboard, but everything seems to work wonderfully!
    A+

    **The following cannot be used against this keyboard, considering the fact that I'm on Vista.**

    On Vista, the action keys (play, pause, etc) do not work.

    Great Keyboard

    Bought this for work because I hate the IBM keyboards we get here, and I love it. This is only my 3rd Apple prodcut and I have to say that they've really made a good impression on me with this.

    BEST APPLE KEYBOARD EVER!

    this is the most comfortable keyboard i have ever used not to mention the most beautiful and sleek. the keys don't travel far which makes for quick typing. the keys are also nicely spaced apart; minimizes wrong key strokes. the keyboard also feels very solid due to the aluminum. all in all this is an excellent keyboard if you are looking to replace your older apple keyboard!

    Come a long way

    we've come a long way from the old typewriter keys. This thing is sweet. I wonder how many of us will have used our iphone rebates to get this thing. Already seen other posts to that effect. Anyway it's really a lovely and feels wonderful to type with. this review would've been a lot shorter but it's so nice to type on. Still working out how to map the F keys the way i like, but luckily they have lot of options. Took me a sec to find the fn key which is in the home end page up page down cluster.

    people like to thank steve but i say thanks to the apple engineers
    now that you've finished this keyboard you can go home and make love to your husbands and wives - ha - iphone 2.0 is more like it.

    Fantastic!

    I just picked up the new Apple keyboard from the Apple Store and it really is fantastic. It has a small footprint on my desk and feels very solid! One of the nicest keyboards I've ever used...

    Love, Love, Love It!

    I ordered this keyboard as a replacement for the one that came with my iMac (that keyboard significantly slowed down my typing speed and accuracy) and I absolutely love it, after having used it for a mere 10 minutes. My typing is faster and more accurate with this new keyboard.

    All of the special keys worked perfectly as soon as I finished downloading and installing the keyboard software update.

    The only thing I do not like is that I cannot plug a USB drive into the keyboard. When I do, I get a message saying there isn't enough power for the device. Other than that one minor difficulty, it's an excellent keyboard, which I would recommend to anyone.

    APPLE DNA provides yet again

    At first glance at the new Versatility sculpted in Aluminum Keyboard I fell in love. The absolutely simplicity of this new input device capture not only my imagination of the barely there, it sparked that old love I have with space saving devices, and now that I think about it those two emotional reactions are probably one. See I ramble because this keyboard is the EFFIN BOMB to be quite honest.

    Great keyboard!

    I've had this keyboard awhile now, but I've only recently started using it full time on my desktop.. but, I LOVE it. I've gone through many mac keyboards in the last few years, but this one is perfect so far! It is a lot like the macbook pro keyboard - low profile, quiet keys.. and small form factor overall.. but its a million times better than cheaper competitors keyboards (eg: the kensington) Amazingly I find myself having less typos than I did with my old keyboard and the "getting used to it" stage took far less time than I anticipated.

    I totally recommend this keyboard! Even for a wired keyboard, it gets the job done. Wireless wasn't a big option for me, since it is hooked up to a desktop.. and my toddler likes to try and steal the keyboard and mouse and run away.. at least this way he can't get off with it.

    Best. Keyboard. Ever.

    The review title says it all. I have been using Apple keyboards for well over ten years & this is the first one I like more than my beloved ADB Extended II Keyboard, with its high quality, individual key-switches.

    It has taken less than a day to get used to the feel of the new one, the hardest part being its extremely low profile means I don't have to arch my wrists or use a wrist rest to type on it.

    Buy one, relax, & enjoy!

    Excellent Keyboard - I highly recommend it.

    I've been surprised to see a number of 1 star reviews for this product. Personally, I love this keyboard. It looks good, but much more than this I've found it to be the most comfortable keyboard I've ever used, due to it's low profile causing less wrist strain. There is less travel on the keys than on other desktop keyboards, but you quickly adapt to this. I have not had any issues with missing keystrokes, as some others have mentioned.

    great keyboard

    I was skeptical after reading all the complaints and considering that I have big hands, wide shoulders and have difficulty getting ergonomically situated. I went to the store and wasn't impressed, though it wasn't at a desk angle. I took the leap anyway and after a very brief period of adjustment, couldn't be happier. The keys are low and easier to use, with much less strain on my hands. It looks great and seems well made. Beats the old dirt collecting tray model by miles. Go ahead, take the leap. You're only regret will be depression when you have to use a "regular' keyboard at work. Form and function come together here, big time.

    Perfect

    This keyboard is just what i needed for my desk. My desk has a lot of junk on it and this keyboard fits perfectly. The keys are very easy to press yet they maintain feedback. Though the keyboard is smaller the keys are a little larger than on a normal keyboard. I think the USB ports are fine, though it would be nice to be able to charge my iPod touch with them. The most annoying thing is that when i hit a key my mouse vibrates due to the keyboard being so solid.

    Another home run, Apple!

    After many years of faithful use, some of the keys on the keyboard on my iMac began to stick, thus seriously slowing down my work, which is paid by the word and because of which I've learned to type very quickly.

    I was facing a deadline for delivering text when this occured, and being in France (where the keyboard is different) I couldn´t go out and buy one at the local Apple retailers, who only offer French keyboards. So, a friend who was arriving the next day from abroad agreed to buy and bring me an English keyboard (not Apple because her town doesn't have an Apple store). It turned out to be one of those PC types, ugly and garishly full of bells and whistles. Furthermore, the touch was clanky. Bad enough, but very soon it began to jump up a line every time I hit the space key. And then, thankfully, I discovered that I could buy a new Apple Keyboard with the English configuration on-line from the Apple Store here. It arrived today, and I am absolutely delighted. The touch is sensitive, silent, and perfect, and it has no problem keeping up with my frantic typing. The design is minimalist and elegant, but it can be set up to satisfy
    even the most demanding variety of commands. What a life-saver!
