    Stylish and very functional.

    • Written by from Helensburgh

    Excellent little keyboard. Been looking for a nice, compact sized keyboard to use with my Macbook for a long time, as I also use my Macbook through a secondary screen, 32" tv, and needed something that would sit nicely on my lap, without being too over sized, and this does the job perfectly. I have no idea what a previous reviewer has against this product. I think it's great. And to say there is no delete button! Er, what is the button in the top right corner, below the eject button? Oh! It's the delete button!

    Ok, Apple I do have to admit, you have to reduce the cost, as £56 is a bit steep for a keyboard, and for that you lose a star! I was in two minds to buy it because of that.

    Wireless keyboard not good for Pro Applications

    • Written by from Brackley

    If Apple could make a wireless keyboard with the number keypad, then this would be perfect. Until that time, using software such as Logic Studio or Final Cut, you are hampered by the lack of extra keys if you wish to use Screen sets and pressing play/record etc.
    I have to use a wired keyboard consequently, so the advantages of wireless, such as being able to control Logic from across a studio room are lost. Shame because it is such a lovely design.

    Lovely but be warned

    • Written by from Wallasey

    Lovely keyboard, but be warned... if you leave it turned off for too long (like about 6 months) and the batteries go bad you can not remove the bad batteries. Due to its compact design and solid aluminium case, if the batteries do go off and expand the keyboard is useless. Just had to throw mine away due to bad batteries. Not happy.

    Like I say though, gorgeous keyboard.. if you can swallow the exorbitant asking price.

    excellent keyboard. best value for money available!

    • Written by from worcester

    As i said in the title, this keyboard is excellent value for money - it's bluetooth, it's got island/chiclet style keys, very small footprint (Good riddance Num-Pad!!), battery lasts around 4 months from my use.. and it even works flawlessly with my iPhone 3GS with shortcuts like Cmd+C/V working as Copy and Paste! All for only £51.70!! I would recommend this keyboard to literally anyone! :)

    An expensive toy - no good for typists.

    • Written by from Bourne

    Zero stars for this keyboard. It's fun as a toy – 'look, no wires Oooh! - but does not stay connected, even when used within 30cms of the computer, and when all likely causes of interference are removed. And when it re-connects, the gadget runs amok and will often write a string of repeated letters, or worse, run backwards and delete chunks of text.

    For professional users and for rapid touch typists, it's hopelessly slow and frustrating to use. I would not recommend it to anyone and particularly not to anyone who uses a keyboard for more than a couple of minutes at a time.

    Apple should produce a wireless keyboard which is full sized, ergonomically comfortable and which works reliably. This current product is not one I'd recommend to anyone.

    The wireless mouse, though slow, is a little better.

    Good & Bad

    • Written by from earlsheaton

    great for typing on, cant fault it at all, its comfortable generally responsive and is excellent for typing essays with, only problems I've had is the upper case kay seems to lag behind from the rest, wether this is just my keyboard i don't know but it can be very annoying when writing for long periods of time, second problem, on/off button, not a fan, i know its supposed to be flush and look great. and to be fair it does, but i don't want to spend five minutes making sure my keyboard is off, a simple slider switch like is on the mouse would have done the job just fine.

    Fabulous!

    • Written by from BRISTOL

    The Apple Wireless Keyboard paired seamlessly to my iPad and iMac. As a touch-typist with quite large hands, I was concerned regarding some other reviews. But my fingers absolutely fly across the Apple Wireless Keyboard with the minimum of wrong-keys hit/typos etc. It's definitely the best keyboard I've used and, no, I do not work for Apple. In fact, I'm a very recent PC to Apple convert. Okay, it's pricey but worth it. And there's no denying how fantastic it looks on your desk, or if you decide to do a little writing when out and about - it's great for posing! Love it, love it, love it.

    • 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.

    Great keyboard with a few things missing

    • Written by from Ormskirk

    This keyboard arrived with my iMac. It's compact size allows it to be used all over my room with no problems about space. The smaller size takes some getting used to but once you do its a brilliant factor in it's design. The aluminium unibody is impressive as you would expect from apple. The reason I rated it down is my caps lock key doesn't always work properly (probably just an individual fault) and the lack of keys like home, page up, end etc. The lack of a num pad doesn't bother me although for some people, that may be an important factor. Overall I love this keyboard and find it incredibly convenient.

    Great product, as usual

    • Written by from Chester le Street

    Just bought this today and must say I'm very impressed. Although the keys are pretty much in the same place as the earlier wired keyboard, it seems it may take a few days to get used to how much less there is to the whole thing.

    Don't let other reviews put you off, people complaining about there not being a delete key. To delete something (not backspace), simply press the 'fn' key along with the 'backspace' key and voila, delete! It seems to me that unless everything is written out for some people, they just don't get it (hands up if you've complained there isn't a # key on Apple keyboards?? (Opt+3)).

    As expected, this keyboard has both form and function, and the fact I can stick it away in a drawer, or on the stand under my iMac, should I ever need immediate desk space, adds kudos in my opinion.

    Awesome

    • Written by from Rochester

    So many people are moaning about it not having a number pad? Ok, it doesnt but it has numbers as does a standard keyboard, a competent typist wont use a number pad. Surely you looked before you bought? Der!!! It doesnt have a delete button? er it does.... Second button down, top right!!! a competent typist will correct as they go along Der!!!!! If you want to delete a large block or picture/ page etc highlight and delete..Der!!! with the Ipad 2 there are only two keys that wont work, the rest do exactly as they are meant to. I work for the Emergency Services and use my iPad 2 constantly. Now I have this keyboard I use it even more. IT IS THE DOGS DO DO's. It's meant for a specific job, which is to be a lightwieght portable keyboard. It's not to replace a pc keyboard it is a fantastic bit of kit all round. My only complaint? they dont do a carry case for it.

    a beautiful keyboard

    • Written by from STRATFORD-UPON-AVON

    This keyboard is not just wonderful to use but beautiful and aesthetically pleasing too. To sit with it on my knee, when needed, is a boon and a facility much enjoyed. With the companion mouse my desk is clean and minimalist. They are a combination I have long waited for, and which has now been fulfilled. Strongly recommended.

    To be honest its good being able to move and have it in your lap but it runs out of battery way too quickly and i would rather have the old keyboard. I put batteries in the key pad and mouse about once a month.

    Compact, clutter-free but handicapped during wireless back-ups

    • Written by from Brighton

    A great keyboard - especially if you are already used to a MacBook, and of course it makes it very easy to switch between a Macbook and Pro or iMac, since the key layouts are identical.

    In addition, it's compact size frees up space on your desk, has no wire clutter (obviously) and can be used away from the screen, making it nice and flexible. Battery life is excellent, too.

    BUT there is one big flaw. Like all the current crop of Apple Bluetooth devices (Magic Mouse and Magic TrackPad) it goes slightly mad during wireless backups to a Time Capsule, occasionally repeating keystrokes in particular (as if a key had got stuck).

    Otherwise, I'd have rated this 10/10.

    Come on Apple, sort this silly interference issue out! Please!
