    Best. Keyboard. Ever.

    • Written by from Belleview

    I have been using this keyboard since 2007. I love it. Nothing else even comes close. I type faster and with no struggling at all. It is hard for me to find a keyboard that I don't have to fight with... I have very, very large hands, and this particular keyboard allows me to just focus on creating the content that I want, not on how/where I place my hands. If something happens to this keyboard, I'll go buy another one just like it.

    Random Problems with Tunes and key combinations

    • Written by from Lanham

    Over the past six months I have purchased several of these keyboards for my office and personal use, I have a problem with one which turns on my iTunes on and starts playing when the keyboard is connected to my MacBook Pro. The key combination of shift and W doesn't work. I contacted Apple they had no answers, I questioned warranty and was told there is no warranty since it wasn't purchased with a computer, I questioned more and got several stories, know one at Apple could tell me what the warranty is.
    My company has been loyal Apple users since the first Mac and this is the most run around I have ever had. I do know that other keyboard manufacturers have clear warranty statements and don't require a computer purchase get get warranty.
    other than these problems the keyboard would be a solid five star rating.

    Shocking!

    • Written by from Denver

    I have no problem with the key feel or ergonomics of this keyboard. My problem is that everytime I use it I get a static discharge, and not a small one. I don't know if this caused any problems with my computer (hope not), but it got irritating enough that I had to stop using it and I got an old plastic apple keyboard. I would love to get a wireless keyboard, but I have to have the numeric keyboard on the right, and Apple does not make one like that.

    Slim is in

    • Written by from Winkler

    Been on an Apple shopping spree lately.. and this thing just fits right in to the rest of the stuff I've bought. Slim, aluminum, the keys are perfect and I am so glad to have a numeric keypad back. looks great beside magic mouse and apple display.. a definite must for people who are in front of a desktop computer for many hours in a day!

    Excellent Keyboard, but would like a wireless version!

    • Written by from Quesnel

    I love typing on this keyboard and everything about it is great except the cord! I know there is an Apple keyboard that is wireless but it would be nice to see this design in a wireless version.

    First step into quality...

    • Written by from Wroclaw

    I just ordered my first MacBook Pro and bought this keyboard, Magic Mouse and HDMI connector to organize my office desk.
    I need to wait for Mac so I connected the keyboard to my present ThinkPad and... I am totally amazed!
    ThinkPads are known for their brilliant keyboard for high amount fo typing, but this is phenomenal.

    It's so easy to press the button, yet the action-point of it is so well rcognizable that I can't imagine any other keyborad for the future.

    The only downsides -
    1. I need to get used to switched "ctrl" "alt" keys
    2. Lack of insert key.
    3. it's not wireless.

    It's brilliant - buy this and keep that smile on your face.

    Looks great

    • Written by from BESSEMER

    Like all mac products it looks great sitting on the desk. The keys work much better then they appear at first. Feels very heavy and worth all the cost. Single gripe I have with it is that the USB extension cable can only be used for this keyboard. There is a notch in the ends of the cable not allowing you to plug it into the keyboard side USB ports, then plug in a thumb drive, or other device. I'm not sure the reasoning behind the notching of the cable, so it gets a 4.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Sherwood

    I love this keyboard! I have been using it since it first came out (three years ago in 2007!). It takes a little while to get used to it because it is so thin, but afterwards, you can't go back to a regular keyboard.

    I prefer the numeric keyboard to the newest one without the arrows and number pad because I use those keys a lot.

    I also love the USB ports. I use one side for my mighty mouse (when the battery to my wireless mouse dies) and the other, I use for small USB drives or to sync my iPhone.

    I use the F3 keyboard shortcut quite frequently to go back and forth between windows and also the controls on the F7-F12 keys for my iTunes.

    This is really a great product and I have never had any issues with it.

    Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad - brilliant

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    This is the best keyboard I've ever typed on, and I've been typing on Mac keyboards all day long for the past 25 years - literally. It's even better than the previous model, the "pro" keyboard was bad; that thing was absolutely unusable (so I used a MacAlly iKey).

    This keyboard has the side effect of making the transition to typing on a MacBook Pro keyboard seamless; it used to be hard not to make mistakes all the time after typing on a keyboard with the normal amount of travel.

    I wish they made a wireless version with a 10-key pad.

    love this keyboard

    • Written by from Grass Valley

    it is just about perfect...the only thing I would change is the design, it would be more ergonimic if it were entirely flat on the desk vs. the slight incline (though this incline allows you to have 2 usb ports and that is very helpful).

    USB is High Power!

    • Written by from Troy

    I'm using this right now with a Macbook 13" (2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo) that I purchased in the summer of 08. For those worried about whether or not the USB can power anything, I am happy to report that I've thrown everything at it and they all work. I've used the USB ports to power and charge my ipod, run my external harddrive, flashdrive, wireless mouse, and SD card reader.

    The reason why I rate this 4 stars are for various reasons. The ergonomics of it aren't exactly the greatest with my palm having to rest on the table and not some external padding that I'm used to with Logitech keyboards. Also, $50 for a keyboard seems pricey but this is Apple and to have the Fn buttons just work without having to hack or modify a PC keyboard does make up for it.

    Love it

    • Written by from Nokesville

    When I first took it out of the box I thought it was going to be too small for my big paws. After hooking it up to my Mac Mini and actually using it I'm loving it. It fits nicely on my keyboard drawer. I love the "action" on the keys. Typing on it is easy.Two thumbs up!

    Nice!

    • Written by from GRADIGNAN

    This is the best keyboard i've ever bought! Using it with my Macbook Pro for more than year and i still love the touch of pressed keys. When you type the text its pure pleasure...
    Only downside that USB cord is quite short... still 5 stars!

    A very nice Keyboard

    • Written by from Contoocook

    Ever since they came out with the flat design a couple years ago, I have been in love with it. When I got my MacBook Pro, then bought accessories for it so I could use it as a desktop computer, I was very excited to get this keyboard. I like that it has the extension cable, because I don't always need the longer cable, depending on how I'm set up, and it's nice to take it off. I don't seem to have the same issue as other people regarding the iPod connections. I plug my iPod Touch in through the keyboard's USB slots all the time because I don't have much room on my actual computer. The only thing that keeps this from being a full 5 stars is the fact that there is no wireless version. I really wanted a bluetooth keyboard, but I had to have the number pad also. So the bluetooth version lost out to this one for that reason. If they ever come out with a full size bluetooth keyboard, I will upgrade to that.

    Great keyboard, but WHAT THE!?

    • Written by from Jesmond

    This is a great keyboard. The key layout and spacing is fantastic and makes for very accurate typing. It's also nice and quiet to type with, which is important as I tend to press keys hard when I type, which can be very noisey on different keyboards.

    .......but when it comes to the USB ports all I can say is 'WHAT THE!!!!'.

    The two USB ports on either side of the keyboard are STILL lower power ports, and cannot even run a USB 2.0 memory stick!

    Seriously Apple, nobody uses USB 1 memory sticks anymore, and you cannot even buy a wired version of the Magic Mouse so why on Earth would you include LOW power USB ports!?

    If providing sufficient power to the USB ports is an issue, Apple should add support for an auxiliary USB cable from the Mac to the keyboard, or even add an AC power adapter, which would allow the ports to run at high power similar to USB ports that are now present on many monitors.

    So this keyboard is great, but could be better with high power USB ports.

    Is there a warrantee

    • Written by from New Haven

    I bought my keyboard less than a year ago along with one from MacAlley. The Apple keyboard already has a problem. The shift key doesn't work on the left side. The MacAlley keyboard is fine still. the Mac keyboard is a delight to use so concept is good. The actual is a piece of junk.
    I have an untold number of Mac keyboards around here that don't work from many generations of Mac. Why can't these guys make a keyboard as good as their computers?
    Same goes for the mouses made by Mac. I have a drawer full of them and many died after less than a couple of years of use. All have been replaced with off brands that last and work better.

    My keyboard with numeric keypad

    • Written by

    I have had this keyboard for almost 1 year and most of that time I have been very pleased with its performance. However, during the last 2 or 3 months a number of the keys have lost their smooth, quiet operation and are now what I call sticky. I have been trying to find an on-line fix for this condition with no success. It is difficult for me to get to the Apple Store near me because I am no longer driving. If there is an on-line fix I'd like to hear about it.

    technical difficulty

    • Written by from Mount Clemens

    I love this keyboard, easy to type and much less finger fatigue. Unfortunately when I turn on my printer,,,, It doesn't work. Then when I turn off my printer, I have to unplug it and plug it back in before it will work, very annoying, wish there was some fix, haven't found one yet.
