Apple New Wired Keyboard
Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great fee Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great feel and very large keys so you don't make many mistakes.
THE ONE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH IT IS the two usb ports will not support an ipod. I have the video Ipod and I get a warning that the USB power is too low to power the attached device. I bought this key board to clear away clutter on my desk and hopefully eliminate a few cords. Unfortunately its not true and I was disappointed. I am very much an apple fan but the low USB ports were a not as advertised on the website. …

Took a little while to get the feel of it, but now it's second-nature. Once problem...Boot Camp. This little baby uses Function keys for audio up and down and brightness, and Vista really didn't like it. Sadly, I'm going to have to keep using my old keyboard until they update BootCamp to work with this new keyboard. That's why I'm only giving three stars. Otherwise, it'd be a full FIVE, baby!

Pourous Material attracts dirt...
I recently had to replace my apple numeric wired keyboard due to my space bar being bad. It's OK though...it lasted a good long ti I recently had to replace my apple numeric wired keyboard due to my space bar being bad. It's OK though...it lasted a good long time. My new keyboard has a different material that the keys are made out of. It's kind of gritty or porous and it gets dirty really fast. I have to clean it every couple days. The good news is I read somewhere the best way to clean a keyboard was with a "magic eraser" and it's true...it works great. But the keyboard still gets really dirty way too fast. I hope Apple will consider going back to the glossy material they used to use. …

I cannot believe that this Apple keyboard gets a five-star rating. I have to order my THIRD keyboard today because they keep crap I cannot believe that this Apple keyboard gets a five-star rating. I have to order my THIRD keyboard today because they keep crapping out on me. One key goes out and I'm told, "Nope, can't fix it." Wow. They seem to be very cheaply built so it's no wonder they don't last. I think this last one may have lasted 2 years, maybe a little more. Yuk. …
