    Simple, Thin, well-built

    • Written by from Rochester

    I recently purchased one of these for desktop-like uses for my Macbook. It functions very well. I can be 7 feet away from my charging macbook and still get good performance out of this keyboard. I have nothing to complain about. Battery consumption is relatively low based on how long I've had it. It was easy to adapt to since the only difference is that it isn't on my mac. One final thing is that it fits excellently on my keyboard tray allowing me to also put my magic mouse on the tray. Overall, its a very nice keyboard. I highly recommend it.

    Best Keyboard I Have EVER Used!!

    • Written by from Tompkinsville

    I bought this keyboard to use with my iPad and it works fantastic.It is also very light and sleek. I use it every day to type up my notes for class. I don't know how the batteries are because I have only had it about a week but I already love it.

    Poor layout, some keys gone missing

    • Written by from pasadena

    This keyboard has only one Control key and that key is narrow and not in the lower-left corner. This makes editing in Emacs cumbersome.

    There are no page up/down keys. To scroll a text window by one page, one must hold the "fn" key and tap the up or down arrow key. This cannot be done with one hand, which makes it an accessibility issue.

    Two issues

    • Written by from San Jose

    Apple Wireless Keyboard has a very nice, refined, minimalistic design. It looks great in front of your Mac. It's also practical and easy to type.

    But there are two problems.

    Problem 1: It runs out of batteries quickly. I use this keyboard everyday at work. Before I leave, I turn it off to save batteries. But two AA batteries only last 1-2 months.

    Problem 2: It sometimes doesn't find the connection to my computer. When that happens, I turn it off and back on and move it around on my desk but I never know what I'm doing that makes or doesn't make it work.

    One of the most swish keyboards I have ever used. Works very well with the MacBook, and it even worked on my iPod Touch (which came as a nice surprise!) - one keyboard, a truckload of devices. Someone I know has an iPad 2 and has been recommended to buy one of these.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from St. Catharines

    I just recieved my Keyboard in the mail today and I LOVE it! It's so helpful on the iPad because the iPad touch screen keyboard gets very annoying after using it a lot. I'm actually typing this review with the keyboard itself. Let's just say this is my favourite keyboard I have ever used and I highly recommend it!

    Takes a pounding

    • Written by from Tucson

    I type upwards of 100wpm, and I type a lot, every day. I've never babied this keyboard, and it still responds as though it's new. There's no other keyboard that responds the way this one does.

    Keyboard always disconnects

    • Written by from Durham

    This keyboard for use with an iPad 2 is TERRIBLE! It will allow me to type in one note and then it it will not type anymore. I really hope I received a defective model because this is ridiculous. If I want to use the keyboard, I have to go through and "re-pair" the keyboard all ovr, for maybe one note/message again before it peters out. Awful job Apple, AWFUL! I wish I could give it no stars.

    Bluetooth keyboard

    • Written by from Horsham

    Well made product for the 'average' user although I have had no problems yet I am sure that with heavy use it will be more likely to fail in certain crutial ways.
    Otherwise its a great product.

    Cons: I wish it would turn on and off quicker because like most people, I dont like to wait.

    keyboard

    • Written by from Oakland

    The button that holds the batteries for the keyboard in place easily works it's way loose and there does not seem to be a replacement part, instead it looks as if I have to buy an entirely new keyboard.

    Plus, does not come with a travel case for protection

    Good keyboard, One flaw

    • Written by from San antonio

    I bought this keyboard and have had it for about a week or so, and really fell in love with it. One major flaw, and I understand its not with all of them, but the keyboard is not centered right. When I hit the left "shift" key, the keyboard seems to bounce on the left side. The rubbers of the keyboard dont seem to be aligned correctly. In other words the keyboard rocks side to side when typing. Very annoying. Because i have lost the receipt to this keyboard I have put scotch tape under one of the rubbers to even it out.

    Decent Keyboard but pricey for what you get

    • Written by from Livermore

    Overall this is an excellent keyboard. Small enough for easy transport and what not but large enough to use comfortably. My biggest qualm is the lack of a number pad. I am very used to having a number pad and the lack of it drives me crazy sometimes.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Kirkland

    Got the actual thing after replacing a knock off that kept dropping the signal. I can tell you this keyboard is perfectly spaced, the keys feel very nice and smooth, and it's some of the easiest typing I've ever done. Within the first hour of using it, it has become my favorite keyboard.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    On start up, my iMAC frequently can not find the apple wireless keyboard that is turned on and has been paired with this computer. After a couple of minutes, the iMAC recognizes the keyboard but cannot pair with it. This can go on for 15 minutes or more. When your computer is password protected, this is a major problem. Changing the batteries in the keyboard doesn't help. Turning the keyboard off and on again doesn't help. Restarting the computer doesn't help. I bought the computer in October and this has been a continuing problem. I hate the wireless keyboard!

    Undersized, unreliable

    • Written by from Berkeley

    The key spacing is about 90% of a standard keyboard --- it makes my hands hurt to use it all day. (I'm a programmer, so I spend a lot of the day typing.) I've also had two of them fail within a year (in both cases, an entire row of keys stopped working). They can't take heavy use.

    Very good, a little small but works flawlessly

    • Written by from Red Rock

    Picked up this keyboard along with the Magic Mouse. I find the keyboard a little small with the absence of the number pad but the keyboard works well. I still have the wired keyboard under the desk. If I want to switch back but so far I haven't. The keyboard feels the same and types the same as the orginal wired version. I do like the fat that the desk top if free of the wires.

    very good

    • Written by from Burlington

    i love this keyboard.. i totally understand why people wouldnt want this for their mac because of the compact size and the absence of a number pad but i use it for my iPad for typing papers and things. i didnt like typing on the ipad becasue i always made errors but this makes things much easier. if you use your ipad for more than just apps, i totally reccomend it it makes life so much easier.

    good keyboard, bad build

    • Written by from Prospect

    i recently got a 27 inch iMac with the keyboard and trackpad, i thought they were both really great, i moved them a lot, because i was in the process of getting a new desk, i had it set up on a table in front of my bed, and when i moved the keyboard and pad from the table sometimes, i noticed chips in the aluminum body, in both the keyboard and the track pad. other than that, i thought they were pretty good.
