Apple New Wired Keyboard
Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great fee Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great feel and very large keys so you don't make many mistakes.
THE ONE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH IT IS the two usb ports will not support an ipod. I have the video Ipod and I get a warning that the USB power is too low to power the attached device. I bought this key board to clear away clutter on my desk and hopefully eliminate a few cords. Unfortunately its not true and I was disappointed. I am very much an apple fan but the low USB ports were a not as advertised on the website. …

Took a little while to get the feel of it, but now it's second-nature. Once problem...Boot Camp. This little baby uses Function keys for audio up and down and brightness, and Vista really didn't like it. Sadly, I'm going to have to keep using my old keyboard until they update BootCamp to work with this new keyboard. That's why I'm only giving three stars. Otherwise, it'd be a full FIVE, baby!

This keyboard is problematic
One of these keyboards came with my iMac. I really liked it. However, one of the keys became dysfunctional. So, the keyboard wa One of these keyboards came with my iMac. I really liked it. However, one of the keys became dysfunctional. So, the keyboard was replaced under warranty. After using the replacement keyboard for a while; one of it's keys stopped working. So, I pulled out the old keyboard that came with my G3 and used it. Until today when some liquid got spilled on it. All of the bottom row of keys quit working from z-m. If I could get a replacement to the old G3 extended keyboard, I would do it.
I am giving the keyboard 3 stars because I like the keyboard, it was fast and easy to use. However, I need a keyboard with built in USB ports and most of the Mac keyboards I've looked at do not have those ports on the newer keyboards and I really do not want to spend the money to get a keyboard identical to the ones that I had problems with. …
