    Nice feel, but too many missing keys

    • Written by from Spicewood

    The touch of the keys is really nice. Battery life is great. Only complaint is too many missing keys. I really want a wireless keyboard that has the number pad as well as insert, home, end, pgup, pgdown. Those keys are really missed when I remotely connect to a windows box.

    Where's the !@$@#%#$^&!! number pad????

    • Written by

    I really can't use this at work, since it has no number pad like the old keyboard. Also feels a bit cramped, and I keep hitting the caps lock button. Other than that, I guess it is a pretty darn good bit o keyboard.

    Nice keyboard, no backlit keys

    • Written by from Monroe

    Positives
    - Sleek, slim, elegant design
    - Small desk footprint
    - Wireless
    - Great to type on
    - Weighty feel, not too light
    - High quality parts and construction
    - Alt function = media buttons, eject button
    Negatives
    - NO BACKLIT (Cant see when using for movie/music playback with little to no light situations)
    - No USB inputs
    - No ability to use keyboard during BIOS/Boot screen, mostly contribution to limitation of bluetooth and overall nature of boot sequence.
    - NO PC drivers or support
    Main gripes: Not backlit, no PC driver support, lack of functioning until OS boots.

    Could be better

    • Written by from Cayce

    I was dissapointed with the keboard for not having the extra numbers on the key pad which is great for entering in numbered information. I love it with my iPad for typing but went back to the extended keyboard for my Mac Pro

    Stuck Batteries

    • Written by from Owensboro

    After 2 years, the keyboard has failed me. The batteries are stuck in there and now it is beginning to lose its connection to my mac randomly every time I use it. Up until now, it has been great.

    Good, But could do better

    • Written by from Rotorua

    The wireless is the best I've used, however, it's limited in it's function because it's without the numeric keypad. Most users will find that it's a little frustrating when you can type reasonably quickly and then slow down when ever you have to enter a telephone number or customer number etc.
    We are in the 21st century and it's not unreasonable to ask expect the obvious. At the moment you have a desk top computer with a laptop keyboard. It's about time Apple spent more time thinking about how versatile the keyboard could be. Not only could it control your computer but with a little imagination it could do so much more ie, as a remote for your apple TV or regular TV. In fact any remotely operated device in the house.
    There has been one minor issue in that the caps lock light failed and I had to switch off the keyboard and start it again to fix the problem. It has a good feel and a good look. Please Apple - update this product!

    Short lived

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I have had my wireless keyboard for 2 years. Throughout this time it would mysteriously cut out, act weird. I would change batteries quite often and the power/light button failed so I never knew if I was wasting batteries or not. I liked the slim design and the angle, but, I expected it to last longer than it did. I did spill something on it and took it into the Apple Store. The guy popped off the space bar, which was stuck and told me to clean it out. Well, guess what!? It could not be put back together again and was totally broken after that. I was careful, but, I guess not clever enough. I have a terrible time typing on the MacBookPro keypad. I even have a wireless mouse, I do not like the pad. I bought a large monitor because I cannot see well with the existing screen. I love my MacBookPro, I love mac products, but, I do not like having to spend extra money to make my computer operate in the style to my liking. It is like spending $500 for a new set of pots and pans and needing heat proof handles for each pan at another $100 so you don’t burn yourself. It’s so expensive already, why not just make the unit livable from the start. So after two years: 2 mice; 2 keyboards wow

    iPad Synching Issue

    • Written by from Des Peres

    I love the keyboard and it synch's up very easily with the iPad but beware! The instructions accompanying the keyboard explain the synching process with an iMac but no mention of the iPad.

    *You must turn - on the iPad's blue tooth feature in order to synch the two. It took me an hour to figure out this little isse. Apple should include a "quick start" set of instructions.

    too short

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    Love that the keyboard is wireless, but don't like the dimensions. It's too short and is uncomfortable typing for a long time.

    OK for home use, but take the batteries out when not in use it seems to drain batteries even when the Mac is off

    You'll need AA batteries!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This is a pretty cool device. I quickly made the purchase, totally overlooking the fact that it doesn't have a charger. It works with AA batteries:(. So, stock up on them batteries! Another drawback for me was that it doesn't have the numeric section like the USB keyboard. I do a lot of financing thingies, and while this shorter keyboard version is cute, it's no bueno for me!

    The keyboard itself is fine, however

    • Written by from Monroe

    I find the battery compartment lacking. In the case of corroded batteries, which I have experienced due to only mild use of the keyboard, they are impossible to remove, as the keyboard only has a small circular opening, and a one-entrance chute in which to deposit the batteries. It would be nice if the battery cover was more helpful in situations like this.

    Great but why no numbers pad

    • Written by from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu

    It's a great keyboard to type on and the wireless part of it is amazing, but I am baffled by the fact that there is no numeric keypad and no page up/down section.. My bad I guess because I never checked upon purchase of the iMac, but it wasn't unreasonable to just assume it would be a normal keyboard with an awesome computer like that.. Now I'm thinking of just buying the wired version and selling this one because I really got used to the numbers at the right.. By reflex I still try to use it and I end up tapping my desk.. Kinda disappointed overall personally, but good device nonetheless.

    The good and the bad

    • Written by from Walton

    This keyboard is a beautiful keyboard by all means, but how is it in use? Now if you have long finger nails, this is not an ideal keyboard for you. I find it hard to type on sometimes. The connection unfortunately is lost or gets disconnected every now and then. I wish it had the number pad on the right side. Typing long papers is alright, the keyboard has good feedback despite being so flat. the bottom arrows are rather small, so gamers probably should buy this, it's ease to hit another key. As for battery life, I didn't use it over one weekend and it died; rechargeable batteries are the way to go with this. All in all, it is ok, it has both goodies and downsides.

    Good keyboard for a "normal" person, but not good for all day use

    • Written by from Redditch

    This keyboard looks fantastic, uses very little battery and utilises bluetooth technology so can be used at large distances which makes it's use with iMacs or cinema displays perfect when watching movies etc.

    It was also perfect when doing basic tasks like browsing the web, social media etc.

    However, when I'm doing front-end development and other similar tasks, the lack of num-pad, delete etc it makes life more difficult than using a standard keyboard.

    In a nut-shell, I'd recommend this keyboard to someone who uses their computer for basic browsing.

    Limited functionality on iPad

    • Written by

    I was planning to use the keyboard with some terminal apps in order to access my mac remotely from my iPad. The keyboard is great when entering text. However, many keyboard shortcuts do not work. From the web pages of some app developers, the reason seems to be that the iOS API does not support all the keyboard shortcuts. If this issue were addressed, the ipad would be the ultimate remote access solution.

    Caps Lock...

    • Written by from Mukilteo

    Overall the key board is pretty good. The only problem I have noticed is that the Caps Lock Key is a little harder to push than all the other keys. It's kind of annoying. Also the light that indicates if the caps lock is on or not sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I've had my keyboard replaced and got a new one and it still does the same thing. Nothing too big. Just minor. Doesn't affect the performance of the keyboard.

    I love the keyboard, but, I really miss the 10 key adding machine part. I use that a lot. Would love to see you make a wireless keyboard with the 10 key.
