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.

  • 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).

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.

    1) it required three batteries which was a pain.
    2) it's so perfect that it spoils you and quickly makes you not like other keyboards including the full size keyboard with the function keys so far away from typing position.

It i This keyboard came with my iMac in a nice package and the design of the keyboard was great. It was sleek and very impressive. It is very comfortable to type with, but since I am used to Windows PC keyboards, it took a few days to master as the size was smaller and slightly more cramped, but this you can overcome quickly. I am fairly quick typer and I could type on here with no errors even though the size is smaller than other keyboards. Setup was easy with a new Mac because it was connected to the computer at startup, and it probably is as easy to pair if you bought a replacement. The shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard are fast and easy to adjust basic settings such as brightness and volume and access mission control, launchpad etc. In fact they are quicker and easier than access via the multi touch gestures of the mouse (not sure about trackpad though.)

    Overall, I would highly recommend this keyboard for any Mac desktop user as it gets the job done perfectly, as well as incorporating added functionality and a sleek and attractive design.

And a paper needs to be written. No such luck !! The batteries in the wireless keyboard have apparently corroded inside the keyboard so badly that I can not open the battery door !! Funny.... I used the keyboard all day without a problem and without the computer giving me any notices that the batteries were low. Tried and tried to get the battery door open ......IMPOSSIBLE! Even got metal shaving slivers in my hand because the metal is so soft where the battery door opens.
