    • Written by from Tarporley

    this is an amazing piece of tech, from how thin it is to it's bluetooth capability. It has everything that i want of it and more for example it has a panal of functions at the top (brightness, launchpad, mission control, play, forward, rewind and volume controls)
    Amazing and would highly recommend it to anyone

    Very Good, could be better for ipad

    • Written by from NEWTOWNABBEY

    Very good quality keyboard, loads of cheap alternatives but I think its worth paying the extra few quid for it because you know it will def work! It doesnt have a delete button or at least I can't find it but it does have a backspace button, not that big a deal tho. I bought the keyboard for the ipad, which works fine but theres not that many shortcut keys that work just a few basic ones like music and brightness. It would be handy if they could be remapped for home screen, search and lock keys etc... Some has already Shame or I would have given it 5 stars!

    A Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Milton Keynes

    I bought an iMac 6 months ago so therefore got this keyboard. It looks great and performs well. At first I wash unsure if such a small keyboard would be comfortable to type at but it is the most comfortable keyboard that I have ever used.

    Although I am not a heavy typer I am impressed that I have only had to change the batteries on this once in 6 months.

    The only drawback is that there is no delete key but the design and comfort of using it make up for this.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Dudley

    This keyboard worked really well with the iPad, believe it or not but I'm using it to type this. I recommend that you buy an Incase origami workstation with your keyboard and iPad. I find this keyboard very useful also because I always end up hitting the 'n' button instead of a space bar. The origami workstation hold your iPad and your keyboard, it also folds up when your not using it and folds into a case for your keyboard. It is portable and almost makes your iPad look like a laptop. I wouldnt of found out about that stand because it was on a really high shelf in the apple store and the apple employee pointed it out and it is WELL WORTH IT! THE KEYBOARD IS WICKED! BUY IT!

    Brilliant keyboard

    • Written by from Warrington

    I bought this keybord to use with my Ipad 2 as the on-screen keyboard gets a bit annoying when typing longer documents. The design is great and the size makes it easy to take anywhere, the only thing i would like to see is more functuality with the ipad such as page scroll, however this is a great product overall!

    • Written by from Orpington

    I have used this Keyboard for just over 7 months never really took to it Far to compact ones limited to the key function available just cant do all the application as you can with a USB wired keypad with extended key function, should you be more of a advance user you will want to throw it, such a shame Apple definitely missed out on this product.
    Functions sacrificed for styling 'Thats Apple'
    I have reverted back to a USB wired keyboard, loving it with all It's extended functions.

    iMac Wireless Keyboard - Key Size and Layout

    • Written by from Villaviciosa

    I bought an iMac a week ago from a local shop in Spain. Naturally I am not yet entirely familiar with the spanish keyboard. The lack of a delete key is a disappointment and even my spanish friends couldn't help. However on this site I found the fn + backspace solution. I am accustomed to shortcut keys on my british PC and I don't anticipate much difficulty in learning Spanish shortcuts.

    I was surprised that some commentators complained about difficulties in touch-typing due to the "small" size of the keys. I have been touch-typing for around 30 years and have no problems with this keyboard, except that the UK semi-colon key has moved and been replaced by the ñ - I assume that must be normal on a spanish keyboard. The keys are in fact very close to standard size. I measured with a ruler the distance from the left-hand edge of A to the right-hand edge of L; the result - 167 mm. I then measured the same span on my PC; result - 167 mm. Vertical measurements from upper edge of T to lower edge of V were 52 mm on both keyboards. Interestingly, the individual letter and number keys on the iMac are 15 mm square. On my PC these keys are 13 mm square. That suggests to me the the Apple keys are in fact larger than the PC keys!

    For those who think their "big" fingers won't fit on the iMac Wireless Keyboard I'd say - use a ruler and measure the key size and layout yourself.

    I do like the compact overall size, the appearance, and the feel of the keyboard. If you must have a numeric pad then this keyboard is not for you but for general use it's fine.

    Excellent purchase!

    • Written by from Eastleigh

    I am delighted with this little wireless keyboard. Simple set up of your Bluetooth on your iPad to connect the two together and off you go! The keyboard is extremely lightweight and easy to store for travelling. A perfect purchase for myself who does a lot of typing on my iPad and have found it a lot easier to erase spelling mistakes which I do a lot just typing on the touch screen keyboard.

    • Written by from Bury St Edmonds

    I love this keyboard, but be aware that if you intend to use it with an iPad the new model MC184B/B no longer works to control brightness, volume or playback, which is very sad, as the previous model MC184B/A did flawlessly

    Apple's Aluminum Wireless Keyboard 2009 Model Impressions Review

    • Written by from BOURNEMOUTH

    Its gorgeous design is perfect for my tastes and me think the keyboard's ergonomically satisfactory too. Me have smallish hands. Wireless and super fast means me can use it with my MacBook Pro or any iOS device at any distance which is truly awesome. It's feedback from the keys is probably just right.

    As far as improvements go, perhaps Apple could experiment with even quieter typing and softer keys? Of course everyone's tastes are different and we want a nice balance in features (or different versions of the keyboard). A backlit keyboard would be nice if possible. Also the price could be lower - somewhere in the range of £45 delivered would be good enough. Specials thanks for the Russian keyboard. Would ideally like that to be delivered quicker than "3-4 weeks"...

    As far as technicalities go, there is what appears to be a small fault (software?) that many people experience with their caps lock key that fails to light up at times. Switching your device off and on generally solves this. Also, both; trackpad and keyboard make noise as they vibrate from clicking / typing. The battery in the battery compartment moves and it's unpleasant. That is easily countered with a peace of paper inserted into the compartment along with the battery. Lastly, many people seem to experience the same issue when the keyboard suddenly stops working after a year or so of use. All seem to fix this easily with some foil inserted into the battery compartment which leads to a conclusion that after a while an issue with the connection develops. Of course, it being Apple, taking your keyboard to an Apple store would probably get you a new keyboard, no questions asked.

    Best ever keyboard but ...

    • Written by from CORSHAM

    ... I left batteries in it for a few weeks and they corroded. The aluminium body corroded with it and now I cannot remove the last battery. In my keyboard there are 4 (four) AA batteries (not the two stated in the current listing) and I can't get at the last one to remove it. It's corroded in.

    So buy one -- but remove the batteries when not in use.

    Beautiful and functional

    • Written by from Gravesend

    Having fallen in love with a very old Viglen PC keyboard years ago, I have been in constant search of the ultimate small footprint keyboard that does everything I need it to do and lets me work quickly and by touch since then. This is it, and it's wireless to boot. An awesome addition in my opinion to the Mac machine.

    Ok, it takes a while to get used to pressing fn+backspace for delete, but other than that, it's worth investing the time in getting used to it. At least there is a key combination for it and they didn't just strike it from the keyboard completely ! !

    Batteries last around a month, the machine warns me when the batteries are on the way out, so all good.

    I cannot recommend this enough! If you want a small keyboard that looks pretty, works well and can survive regular abuse, this is the kiddy for you.

    Really good piece of equipment

    • Written by from Cheadle

    This a really good piece of technology made by the reliable company: Apple. It is compatible with iPod's, iPhone's, iPad's and iMac's as far as I'm aware. I use it all the time when I'm writing big sentences on my iPod. It uses Bluetooth to connect to other Apple technology. It seems to be a similar keyboard to the MacBook keyboard. The only problem is that it can sometimes be really hard to tell if it's on or off. Otherwise, this is really worth buying.
