    Great accessory to the MacBook

    • Written by from Toronto

    Smooth transition from using the MacBook keyboard to this external keyboard. I find it's much easier to type on with the angle. Takes a little adjustment to get used to the different function keys but it didn't take long to figure them out. The keyboard has a really low profile so it doesn't take up too much space and the price is reasonable for what you get.

    Slick keyboard

    • Written by

    Got a new iMac at work a couple of weeks ago (moving from a PC) & when I first saw this keyboard, I thought there was no way I'd be able to type on it. Took to it immediately! Now, when I have to use a PC, the old school keyboad feels really clunky. Have not had any problems with the Apple keyboard (as one use described in regards to delays when pressing keys, etc.--might be because he's using it on old Macs?). Anyway, I'll be replacing my PC keyboard at home with one of these. Good job, Apple!

    Great keyboard!

    • Written by from Brooklyn Center

    Keyboard is elegantly designed. Small and compact and totally cool! Response is amazing. It's paired with my G5 and it makes you feel like the El Capitan of the Mothership. 2 USB ports right on opposite ends. very responsive keys, plug n play set up, no fuss. Just a fabulous keyboard and it gave me a happy feeling for my $49 bucks.

    It works perfectly with my editing in Final Cut Pro. It would be great to also have the keyboard overlay, but most of the shortcuts are already built into the keyboard.

    If you spend a lot of time on your computer, the $49 will be an excellent investment.

    REALLY nice keyboard!

    • Written by from Lawrenceville

    This is one of the best keyboards I have ever had. It has a nice feel and a very positive response. The design is super and very easy to look at. Would have liked to get this keyboard with num keypad as a wireless kb but it is not to be. I wish the cord was longer but my board shipped with a short extension cable that worked for me.

    Apple sure has improved the keyboard. I love the low profile keys, and it actually feels great to type! One of the main reasons I love this keyboard is because on the older one it was a pain to clean, but with this one its extremely easy! All in all, I love this product!

    Excellent and Beautiful Keyboard

    • Written by from Cambridge

    At first, I had to get used to this keyboard because of its design (i.e. the calculator-type keys). After getting used to it (about a couple of minutes), I realized I could type faster on it.

    The keyboard is quiet and pleasant to the touch. It is easy to clean.

    It looks pretty good from a design point of view.

    I love Apple's New Slimline Keyboard

    • Written by from Ormond Beach

    This keyboard is awesome. I replaced it with the clear type that Apple used to have. I like the fact that it is silver--completed closed and is not even a 1/4 inch thick. Yes...just about a 1/4 inch!! It's so user friendly...the keyboard is quiet too. They moved the eject, volume up and down, brightness buttons all to the very top of the keyboard, along with it's own keys to access the widgets and another key to place all of your files that are open on screen for viewing at once. Being a graphic designer, I am lovin this. I highly recommend this new keyboard to everyone!!

    Amazing

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Before I owned any Apple product, I used to wonder why it was their products were slightly higher in price than other companies... I thought they wanted to rip you off. However, I now know that with a higher price comes much better quality.

    This is one of the most sleek and sexy keyboards I've ever seen. Apple puts so much time and effort into making something as boring as a keyboard into something that a person could truly be proud of. It may be a keyboard, but when the look of it has to be involved in a review, you know it's something special. Now, the performance of the keyboard is also very noteworthy, as it is one of the most responsive keyboards I've ever used in my life. It makes typing a breeze with its low pressure response. I used to have a problem where I would hit hard enough on the keys so the letter would not display, causing a lot of spelling mistakes and tedium... not anymore. Thanks to this keyboard, typing is much faster and tedium is a non issue.

    I also enjoy how there are two USB ports on the device, although they don't work with iPods, which is a real shame. Other than that, there really isn't any other bad things about this keyboard.

    Hey, when I take time out of my day to write a review about a keyboard, you know it's good.

    Amazing Keyboard.

    • Written by from Toms River

    I love this keyboard. It is very responsive, and very easy to type on. I enjoy writing on this keyboard. I think my typing speed has increase. It is beautifully designed. It doesn't take up a lot of space, either.

    Wonderful!

    • Written by from Kalamazoo

    This keyboard is amazing... typing feels so leisurely and relaxed after having used the fat keyboards we're all used to. Plus it just makes your desk look ten times cooler.

    I am apparently dirty because all of my keyboards start really showing the dirt after about 3 months of use, and this keyboard is by far the easiest to clean.

    I'm using this on a Windows computer and all I had to do was map the volume and playback control keys. The command key becomes the Windows key.

    Just want to clear up a few things

    • Written by from Carson City

    To people saying stuff about ipod etc not working, read this

    Devices that draw high power from the USB connection, such as iPods, hard drives and some flash drives, can only be used with the new keyboard when it is attached to the aluminum iMac.

    that is from the page in the mac section on the keyboard. At the bottom.

    So, it only works if you have an aluminum imac to run high power stuff.

    Easy to use

    • Written by from Gainesville

    Simply an excellent feel, nice ergometrics, doesn't get in your way. Key layout is intuitive as well. I use it when my MBP is in closed lid mode. Small quibble...I can never find the fn key, since I don't use it often. I'm used to it being by the control key.

    Best Keyboard EVAR

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    I'm a writer and I swear this keyboard ups my WPM's by 20%. Key travel is practically nonexistent. This was ripped right out of the bridge of the Enterprise. This is without a doubt the best keyboard I've ever used.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Dix Hills

    I liked the old keyboard, but my Tab key wasn't working well, so buying this new keyboard for $49 was cheaper than fixing the old one. I use it with OS 10.4.11, so some of the F Keys don't work as they would if I had the newer Operating System (10.5). My greatest disappointment was that the control-F2 key combination no longer worked as it had on the older keyboard (that F Key combination allows control of the menus from the keyboard). I discovered that if I press the "fn" key (next to the "Home" key), & then press "control-F2," the key combination works just as it used to. This might work for other F Keys as well, I haven't tried it. Other than that, I love the positive feel & short stroke of the new keys, & the extra 3 (19 instead of 16) F keys, & the small symbols on some of the keys (particularly on F3 & F4). Many of the F Keys are pre-programmed by Apple, but 9 of them are not, so you can program those keys yourself if you wish to. Overall, a great buy for a very well-made keyboard.

    Awesome

    • Written by from REDONDO BEACH

    This is a great keyboard in my humble opinion. I actually purchased it to use with my PS3. It paired with no problem and works flawlessly.

    The new style of the keys is intimidating at first but proves to be an easy adjustment once you begin to use it.

    I love that it's light weight and portable and believe that was the idea in the design. This, to me, explains the lack of a 10 key.

    Apple, once again, is setting the standard for style and functionality.

    I know this sounds kinda stupid. But I do not own a Mac. Just purchased the wired keyboard today and it works perfectly with PC as it should with a mac. Very impressed with the response time and hardware. easy to use and looks beautiful.
