    Wireless Version necessary

    • Written by from Dover

    This is a great piece but would be even better if it were wireless. I would prefer having a full keyboard without the wires.

    Wonderful keyboard, but what's with the extension cable

    • Written by from DALLAS

    I love Apple keyboards. This is my third along counting my 2 wireless keyboards. I just don't understand why it's so difficult to insert and remove usb devices from the extension cable that connects to the side ports. I'm a big guy and it took me quite a bit of strength, some cloth to improve my grip, and about 10 - 15 minutes to get it loose.

    Wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Davis

    I love the design of the new apple wireless keyboard with 1 huge exception. No 10 built-in 10 key..

    I do a LOT of data entry and a 10-key is essential: trying to use the numerical entry is difficult and frustrating.

    The separate 10 key that is available is an extra piece of equipment to deal with

    I look forward to a wireless keyboard that has the built-in 10 key.

    Why Oh Why Oh Why....

    • Written by from FORT LAUDERDALE

    I love the design of these keyboards. Sleek, modern and keys that are a delight to press. I recently purchased a 27" iMac and it came with the small bluetooth keyboard without a number pad. Why Oh Why won't Apple make a bluetooth keyboard with a number pad?! Someone really dropped the ball not making this an option. Its the only thing I absolutely hate about my new iMac. I hate that I have to go wired to have a keyboard with a number pad. Hate it! Hate it! Hate it! Hate it so much so that I sometimes wonder why I got the iMac at all I hate it that much I do! And the worst part....no one at Apple who could do anything about it, will ever read this post.

    The best keyboard I've ever owned

    • Written by from Draper

    I have to admit, when Apple first introduced this keyboard I thought it would be terrible. However, after using it for about 30 minutes I didn't want to use a regular keyboard ever again. I'm a software engineer so I'm typing all day long and I love this keyboard. The keys are very responsive and require much less pressure than traditional keyboards. The low profile keys make it much easier to type really fast, nothing is getting in your way. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and now I need to replace the keyboard on all of my computers with one of these. One you use this you'll not want to use anything else.

    Great... BUT some keys just stopped working

    • Written by from Cape town

    This keyboard is almost perfect. I loved it. Nice and sturdy. No need for recharging batteries. Keys are nice and easy and doesn't make a noise when you type, like the previous white keyboard. So
    Had it for two years now and all of a sudden the "m" "j" "u" and "7" keys just stopped working. No damage or fault on my side caused it. Through a bit of online research, it became apparent, that I'm not the only one with this problem. All the keys are in a row, and the apple store said there's nothing they can do, I must just buy a new one. :( Now it doesn't matter that I love it. It's not possible to work on it.

    Works with Windows!

    • Written by from Longueuil

    Bought this keyboard the other day when I couldn't find any Logitech/other keyboards that met my fancy. I wasn't sure if it worked with windows but it certainly does! For you Closet Mac lovers who still need to use Windows OS, you can have can still have a little part of mac! Amazing keyboard. Feels like each of my fingers is sitting on little clouds.

    French Apple Keyboard

    • Written by from Montreal

    Great little keyboard. I use it to enter a lot of numerical data in Number spreadsheets; so the numeric keypad comes in very handy. I love the feel of the keys and the appearance of the keyboard. The convenience of the numeric keypad cannot be understated.

    Awesome & Dishwasher safe (seriously)

    • Written by from Belmont

    This keyboard has been great. It performs. What else can you say? It is a keyboard.

    Here is where it shines. We had a MAJOR wine spill on the keyboard. Tried to mop it up as quickly as possible while yelling profanities. Things weren't looking good when the keyboard dried and it started making the computer do funky things (presumably because the command or option key seemed to be stuck). So, we were out of luck and took a gamble with the good old dishwasher treatment. No soap. No heat dry. "Light" cycle. Wrapped plastic baggie around end of USB cable, although I am sure that was just to make us feel better about the whole endeavor. SO, keyboard survived the wash and after waiting 4-5 days for it to dry (since you can't open these keyboards us), the thing works like a champ. No problem keys whatsoever. WORD OF WARNING: Just give it enough time to dry!

    Why is the 10 key pad not on every keyboard

    • Written by from Redmond

    I originally got the wireless Bluetooth keyboard for the iMac when I purchased it. Its a good keyboard, but the wired 10 key with USB ports has made work more efficient. I no longer have to go to the back of the iMac to plug in a thumb drive, I don't have batteries to worry about or connectivity. Also adding the few other buttons like home, page up, page down etc just makes life easier. The Keys are spread out just enough to make typing easy. It looks great and the function is 100x better then the smaller wireless. This keyboard should be standard on the iMacs.

    Dead in 7 Months

    • Written by from New Hampton

    Worked great for 7 months of very light use - residential a couple days a week about an hour each time. Yesterday a warning window popped up saying "USB drawing too much power".
    The keyboard was the only thing I had plugged into the back of the IMac USB ports. At that point the keyboard died. Dead. As in not even the little caps locked light will not work. Checked the USB ports with other device and they work fine, so I have to assume that when the keyboard started to fry/die it started to pull too much power from the iMac. Love the bigger keyboard but wish they made it in a wireless version.

    Almost The Best

    • Written by from Homestead

    I have been using Apple keyboards for almost 20 years. This is the best, by far. Smooth, fluid and simple, effortless keystrokes at a twitch of the finger, BUT...the decision to make the "extended" keyboard, only in a wired option really stinks. I would really like to see a wireless extended keyboard.

    I can't believe I'm buying another keyboard!

    • Written by from Port Angeles

    After being disappointed by my wireless replacement, (it *ate* batteries like the Cookie Monster eats cookies -- even the rechargeable ones), I thought I'd just live with the old, dirty, wired keyboard with the sticking key. But then I began working with a company that had the new Apple keyboards and I can't go back. I'm having to buy one of these keyboards for home -- and possibly another to use when I travel!

    I'm a heavy typist, pounding my keys, especially the space bar, but this keyboard takes it. I also have smaller hands and hated those "ergonomic" ones that made me stretch to reach the sides. The low, light profile of the keys and more subtle click seem to make the typing easier and less of a strain for long shifts.

    I honestly can't think of how they can improve on this keyboard.

    Love it... but why not wireless?

    • Written by from Austin

    I use this keyboard with my Windows laptop at work. (I have the wireless version for my MBP.) With a key mapping utility, it works wonderfully and is one of the best keyboards I've ever used. My coworkers appreciate its quietness--I'm a keybanger, so I can also say that this keyboard is durable.

    My only complaint about the keyboard as designed is the weird delay needed to engage the Caps Lock.

    I would have paid $100 for a wireless one of these. Maybe more. Why, oh why, must I shackled with a wire just to get a numeric keypad?

    Don't Try This...

    • Written by from Tucson

    A week ago I moved from one house to another. After the move I could not find my keyboard, anywhere. I was about to buy another. Then, I had to move a bunch of stuff off the back patio to make room for a delivery and there she was, sitting bright and shiny as could be...except...it had rained, hard, for several hours, for several days. I had no hope. I shook off the drops of remaining water and figured I could do no wrong if I plugged it in. Or could I? It worked without flaws. I am typing on it now. Go figure. And I refuse to answer any questions about how I could possibly not see it out there on the patio getting wet.

    Great keyboard.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I upgraded from a little microsoft wireless comfort curve keyboard. I currently use the keyboard as my main keyboard on my Windows Vista Ultimate (64bit) machine and it works flawlessly. It was very easy to remap the F13-F19 keys to do whatever I wanted them to do. The only keys that do not work in windows are the eject key along with the FN toggle. To be honest I was expecting the transition to be ok with a minimal impact on my typing speed, however the transition was almost instant and I could swear that I type 10-20wpm faster. The CAPS LOCK key is fantastic no more accidental presses since I switched keyboards.
    My only issue with the keyboard was the absence of windows drivers and software to get the full potential of this keyboard. I fully understand that it is intended to be a Mac keyboard, but windows drivers and software should have been provided. They're missing out on a large chunk of customers who will not try the keyboard as it states that it only works in OSX.

    Made my PC more MAC :-)

    • Written by from Kelowna

    I had to switch to PC at work to "conform" to the norm. My keyboard felt like I was working on a 1960's typewriter. I had all the wrist comforts and still wrists sore. So I grabbed one of these and it was like magic! No soreness - faster typing. Just plain better. Like typing on the desk and not a keyboard. Company might be getting these for everyone in the office now.

    Using it with my PC

    • Written by from San Francisco

    It's plug and play. XP recognised as a generic USB HID keyboard and installed the necessary drivers. I then installed the Apple keyboard driver from Leopard's Boot Camp, now all the keys have the correct mapping for Windows.

    The notebook keys needs a little bit getting used to, but now I can type on it faster than my old MS keyboard. So it's well worth the learning curve.

    And there is no where for the dust to get into, and it's ultra easy to clean.
