Product Information

  • 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.

    Got this about 2 months ago and am very pleased with it. Its small sleek design is very nice to look at and typing on the keyboard Got this about 2 months ago and am very pleased with it. Its small sleek design is very nice to look at and typing on the keyboard is a pleasure requiring the lease amount of effort when compared to other bog standard keyboards you get with some PC Keyboards.

    I have the Wired keyboard and the Wireless keyboard (one for office and one for home). When compared against one another the keys on the Wireless are a little more stiff but not to the point that it is annoying. The Wireless does not come with a USB hub like the Wired but to be honest I never really use it so I don't really miss it. It doesn't come with a Num pad either but again I never really use it when I have it.

    Since I have had it I have not needed to change the batteries, this is probable due to the power down feature on the keyboard when your not using it, but it only takes a second to wake up when you press a key. I would consider myself a "Power User" and use my computer all day every day and was quite surprised I didn't have to change the batteries yet.

    If you need an Apple keyboard get this one, you won't miss the USB Hub, the batteries in it last for ages. It's quite neat and tidy so if you stuck for space on your desk this is the best option.

    I'm very disappointed with this device. I got this along with a brand new iMac and it really lets the side down. Basically Apple h I'm very disappointed with this device. I got this along with a brand new iMac and it really lets the side down. Basically Apple have put design above functionality and for daily users this is a real bind. I waited over a month after getting this to see if I'd get used to it, but sadly no, its PANTS. I'm sad to say there are better keyboards than this.

    Negatives :

    Way too small. I find I make loads of typos using the small keys and find I have to go back and re type. Its knocked my productivity on the head and I've now replaced with a third party keyboard.

    No delete key !! Come on Apple 'What on Earth are you doing here ? '. This is unacceptable to expect users to press two keys to do the same as we did before with one key. I hope you listen to this for the next keyboard.

    Not up to the same standard as the rest of my Apple products.

    Positives :

    Its wireless and the wireless works well.

    Nice design.

  • Making a move to OSX keyboarding

    Making the move from Windows to OSX was something i never expected to be completely painless. However since the advent of windows Making the move from Windows to OSX was something i never expected to be completely painless. However since the advent of windows 8 the choice was made for me, and so came the need to relearn how to use a Mac Keyboard. FACT like keys do different things. However after a short while of re-teaching yourself all becomes second nature. This was all made easier with the help of this apple cut down keyboard. none of the pesky shortcut keys windows forces you to use. so to the device, firstly it looks great, the same high equality finish so many try to emulate. The battery life is great and setup could not be more simple. the keys are response and well spaced.

    One word of warning this is a reduced key set keyboard like a macbook. If like a number of those giving this peripheral a low score you are to complain about the lack of page up/down keys or the delete key. Get the full size apple keyboard with numeric pad.

    This is what it advertises to be nothing more. it is however very good at doing this.

    Bought one for use with my Mac Mini after I spilled tea over my cheaper genreric bluetooth keyboard. Unlike that one the apple key Bought one for use with my Mac Mini after I spilled tea over my cheaper genreric bluetooth keyboard. Unlike that one the apple keyboard doesn't disconnect after being idle for 5 minutes. The sleek design looks good and the keys are good to the touch. Being a touch typist, my one gripe is the in the layout of the @ and " keys which are the "wrong" way around. Although this can be corrected by selecting Brtish PC as the input source, I am trying to see if I can get on with the layout as is. Another gripe, which applies to all UK keyboards, do we really need the $ key? This should be replaced, IMO, by the € key. A suggestion that Apple might consider on future keyboards.

    That said, it was still a good purchase.
