Apple Wireless Keyboard - French
Apple Wireless Keyboard - French
Use the Apple Wireless Keyboard on your desk, on your lap, or anywhere within 30 feet of your Mac or iPad — all because of its built-in Bluetooth technology. Its compact design takes up 24 per cent less space on your desktop than full-sized keyboards, so you have extra room to move the keyboard around and mouse comfortably beside it. You’ll also feel a difference when you type on its low-profile, anodised, aluminium enclosure with crisp, responsive keys. Use the function keys for one-touch access to a variety of Mac features such as screen brightness, volume, eject, play/pause, Mission Control, and Launchpad.
The Apple Wireless Keyboard requires just two AA batteries - one less than the previous model. And its intelligent power-management system conserves battery life. So when you’re not using the keyboard, it powers down automatically. The instant you start typing, it turns on again. Use the on/off switch when you're away from your computer for a long time.
What's in the Box?
- Apple Wireless Keyboard
- Two AA batteries
- Printed documentation
- Mac OS X v.10.6.8 or later

Best keyboard I have used.
I can type on this keyboard faster and with fewer mistakes than any other I have used. I used to think the keyboard in my old Pow I can type on this keyboard faster and with fewer mistakes than any other I have used. I used to think the keyboard in my old Powerbook G4 was the best I had used, until this was released. The response is great and keys are springy and always register a click. I like this keyboard so much that I bought one for work, with my own money, rather than use the cheap office one.
The battery life is great and a huge improvement over the first wireless keyboard. I think I change the batteries after four months and that is will daily use and I use it a lot, but can't remember it's so infrequent.
It's great at a desk and now I use it on the couch on my lap, with the Mac Mini connected to my TV. Same size keys as a regular keyboard, but small enough to tuck into the end of the coffee-table when not in use. Love that it goes into a stand-by/sleep mode and I never need to turn it off. Just stop using it and then tuck it away. No delay or waiting for it to re-connect when I come back to use it hours or a day later. If only there was a model with a touchpad (hint, hint). …

Heavy user. Sysadmin. High praise.
Having both a Macbook air and this wireless keyboard is a treat. The wireless keyboard (as well as the wired keyboard) have virtua Having both a Macbook air and this wireless keyboard is a treat. The wireless keyboard (as well as the wired keyboard) have virtually the same layout, save the function button, smaller control and alt keys, and small arrow-pad. This means that as I move from laptop-keyboard to wireless-keyboard, I do not have to adjust my typing habits to compensate for altered ergonomics.
The tactile response of the keys is noticeable yet not wearisome.
Bluetooth distance has never been a problem for me even paired with an tower outfitted with an external USB bluetooth dongle.
I am a daily user and have replaced the batteries in my laptop twice in about 7 months.
No gripes here. …

To anyone complaining its too small, its the same size as all apple laptops, so when you switch from one to the other, your fingers always know where to go. How annoying would it be if every keyboard was spaced differently?

Firstly I have large hands and this keyboard is very easy to type on, those saying its too small simply need to learn how to type Firstly I have large hands and this keyboard is very easy to type on, those saying its too small simply need to learn how to type correctly.
