    GREAT...but...

    • Written by from Kissimmee

    Ok...Ok.. This is a truly beautiful thing, well done. I have used my MacBook Pro 17" as my main computer (95% of the time) for the past 3 years. Recently (last week) I updated my Pro to the new unibody 15" pro and added a 24" led screen (waw again)... So with the new 24" led well I needed a keyboard and hence this one. It works great with well placed keys and handy controls for a variety of functions. Full numeric keys and arrows. My only real surprise is that there is no backlight... hmmmm.... I just cannot understand why Apple did not put backlit keys... I use my system for a variety of things and often operate in a no light room.

    Oh Apple Keyboard, how I love thee! Let me count the ways!

    • Written by from Bremerton

    This is hands down the best keyboard I ever used! I love the keys on it and it looks great on my desk. I can type so much better and the key throws are perfect. The only thing that would make this better would be to make it backlit... Ahhh... I can dream.

    Apple hit a home run with this beauty! Now if only the Mighty Mouse was as good...

    AWESOME - will speed up your typing

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I can type about 30% faster with this keyboard since the keys have such good response. It sucked for about a day then was awesome ever since. Don't go by the very first time you use it.

    Slim, sleek, comfortable

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    I purchased the French keyboard and couldn't be happier with it. I had been accustomed to working directly on my laptop keyboard and was wondering if I'd handle the switch well... Have no fear, it rocks.

    Great keyboard

    • Written by from Mableton

    Great Keyboard.

    I would give it 5 stars if the USB ports on the side would actually be useful. A mouse is the only thing that can plug into them (so why have 2....)

    USB Sticks, iPods (HELLO!!??) or any powered device (camera) dont work there....

    Best...Keyboard...Ever!

    • Written by from Lake Elsinore

    The best part about this keyboard is that the keys are so crispy, and have such a shallow travel distance! It's so refreshing, after using one of those junker keyboards that come from a pc desktop. And I also like that there are two built in usb ports on each side. My MBPs two usb ports were in high demand, and I was going to have to buy one of those usb hubs, but then I got this keyboard which solved the problem.
    I would say something that I didn't like about the keyboard, but I honestly can't think of anything. It's just so incredible!

    I am a keyboard snob

    • Written by from San Francisco

    and this is a very nice keyboard. It feels very similar to the current laptop keyboards, with a very short-travel keypress. Anecdotally, I think that makes the keyboard faster than others I have used. The Keyboard also has several more F-Keys that previous apple keyboards, which gives real flexibility for applications. Oh, and of course, it also has a full 10-key and big arrows, unlike the wireless version.

    Its worth noting that the keys themselves are slightly rough, and since they are white, attract dirt like it is going out of style.

    Work well on Mac and PC

    • Written by from Zurich

    After years of really hating Apple's previous keyboards, the last all-white ones being truly terrible, the new feel came along to the Mac Book and now these keyboards. The spacing is fantastic and the feel is amazing to type with. I just wish Apple would be a little bit more expansive with their documentation. It took me a while to discover that I could turn off the pre-set function keys (Sound up/down/mute, brightness etc) in the bootcamp system panel in Windows, giving me the full range of 15 function keys to play with.

    New Keyboard

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I dislike the new keyboard. It is fine aesthetically, but not ergonomically. It is too low, it slides too easily. It hurts my wrists and my fingers to use it. It is not for someone who writes all day. I think it would be fine for a child's hands but not for a grown person's hands--at least not mine. The old keyboard was better. I am replacing this with an ergonomic model.

    IMac Keyboard

    • Written by from Beverly

    Fantastic looking keyboard .. slim, matches silver color, 2 USB ... all good, but lousy in typing. Space bar is hard to press ... must be press just the right angle. I make too many errors in general. Feels like typing notebook keyboard.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Canon City

    I just got this keyboard, this week. And love it. It is so nice. I don't want to stop using it. When I saw how thin it was I didn't think it would work, but the keys are so soft to the touch, that I have to watch myself at how I type. It has the features you want for you mac. I just can't say enough about this keyboard it is FANTASTIC!!!!! I wish they were made for my PC at work.

    All touch (I mean pound), no action

    • Written by from Dallas

    LOVE the look, but give me my old key board back..... This is a keyboard that wants to be all touch, but lacks the sensitivity - drops letters everywhere. I would stay with the old deep seated keyboard until they get the action right. We have an office with multiple keyboards that have been replaced with the old style or (worst yet) MS keyboards.

    European keyboard

    • Written by from Phoenix

    Since I communicate quite often in different European languages, I have always wanted a European keyboard but could never find one in the Apple Stores or at Apple. But, a friend in Spain sent me one for Christmas. I cheated and opened my gift early.

    Not only is it esthetically beautiful and comfortable but, now I can write using all those accent marks and letters that we do not have in English. There is both a $ and a € symbol. Finally!

    It has taken time to really use the keyboard. There are new keys and some keys perform 3 different functions depending upon whether the ctrl, alt or cmd key is depressed with the other key. It was easy programming the Function Keys and my e-Mac has never looked this good especially now that Leopard, i-Work 08 and i-Life 08 are installed.

    It was odd to see the USB port off to one side but I do like the extension USB provided. It is easier now to use my USB Flash Drive.

    It is so typically Apple! Well-designed, well-made, well-presented and so functional. I am one of those long-time Windows users who switched in 2005.

    This is a great keyboard. I have been using it for some time now and have no complaints. I am a very fast typer and I have no problems with this keyboard. The spacing is correct and it is ultra easy to use. Apple once again you have done a great job! Thank you.

    Pleasemakethespacebarwork!

    • Written by from Greenville

    It may be because of my typing style, but it seems I have to hit the space bar ridiculously hard to get it to register, and I often have to slow WAY down to ensure I don't get joined words. Other than that, I like it... but this one thing is pretty important when it comes to keyboard usage.

    Apple Keyboard

    Hands down the best keyboard I have ever used. My typing speed has improved dramatically. You can also eat your danish in the morning without worrying about the crumbs falling down between the keys.

    THE only keyboard I use

    • Written by from Oakdale

    These thin keyboards are comfortable, responsive, light, and easy to type on. I don't feel pain or discomfort in my wrists due to the thin design. I have two of these and use them instead of my laptop keyboard. Excellent in every way! THE BEST!!!
