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!

However, I would have thought by now that this keyboard would be wireless. I'm the type of person who uses that number keypad all the time instead of the top one above the letter keys. Especially since I'm an accountant, I use it even more than most. I wish they would finally make this as a wireless one. …

Quality has gone
We got one of these keyboards with our iMac in 2010 and it lasted and worked perfectly, including using the USB ports to charge an We got one of these keyboards with our iMac in 2010 and it lasted and worked perfectly, including using the USB ports to charge and download from iPods and iPhones (don't know if that is really what the USB ports were for). Sadly I dropped a wee dram on the keyboard and letter E failed. So bought a replacement and had trouble ever since, we are now onto our third keyboard in a year. I also upgraded the iMac to Yosemite and that seems to have made things worse. The USB ports don't seem to work at all, or if they are used they cause the whole keyboard to fail. Pretty shambolic really. I will be looking for a non-mac next time. …
