    Highly recommended

    • Written by from St Albans

    Just taken delivery of the wireless keyboard and using it for iPad 2 - so impressed, looks gorgeous and was using it in less than 20 seconds after taking it out of the packaging. I normally use my iPad for apps and surfing the internet but the keyboard is going to add another dimension to it - using the on-screen keyboard can be uncomfortable for more than a few sentences and awkward if tilted up on a stand. Now I can sit at my desk and use it as I would a laptop. Expensive but worth it.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Colchester

    In a whole, this is another quality product from Apple. Like all Apple products, the keyboard is very easy to set up and comfortable to use.

    However, the only bad thing I have to say about the keyboard is that the quality of the plastic for the keys aren't as good as the keys on the MacBooks so it would have been nice for them to use the same sort of plastic but, they are still good quality none the less.

    This is a fantastic product and well worth getting if, like me, you use your ipad to write documents and send emails. I highly reccomend it. It completely transformed the what I can do with my ipad.

    wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Huntingdon

    I purchased this keyboard in the last year - then purchased the trackpad this year - the cursor flies all over the place and despite taking it into Genius bar they couldn't see what was wrong. I now have to purchase another keyboard - hopefully it won't happen again!

    Caps lock broken..

    • Written by from London

    Caps lock - fairly random as to whether it would work (found only using the far right of the button had a better success rate). Now the light is just showing as on - irrespective of whether it is. Seems this is a common fault on both the wired and wireless keyboards form reading the reviews.

    The lack of basic buttons (Delete, page up/down, home, end) is very frustrating and now i am trying to use my Mac more for word processing etc makes this product pretty awful.

    Connectivity also seems to be an issue; as it regular becomes unconnected for 20 / 30 seconds.

    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.

    Well...

    • Written by from Boston

    Although the keyboard itself is absolutely beautiful there are some drawbacks. I have had mine for a little while now and I must say I barely used it. Why is that you might ask? Well for one I wanted the keyboard not only to use on my mac but also on my PS3. Having looked at other keyboards this one just generally looks nicer and I would usually go for Apple products because they do tend to work fine. The one I got had issue with both connecting to my mac and to my PS3. It would drop it connection a lot on both platforms and quite often I would have to re-pair the devices. Not only this but having left mine on the shelf, for not a considerable amount of time, the batteries corroded inside. I have never had this problem with anything else that takes a battery and I am led to believe that there is no way to repair or fix the problem without damaging and ruining the keyboard. My suggestion to you would be to be wary and make sure that if you are not entirely happy with it to take it back. My suggestion to Apple would be to make a wireless keyboard that we can all plug in and save any issues with batteries at all.

    No delete key

    • Written by from Coatbridge

    The delete key is probably one of the most used keys on any keyboard but it is not on this one. I am puzzled by Apple's leaving it out. Instead you have to use the mouse and backspace key.

    • Written by from Macclesfield

    Although I think this is a really good product, why oh why do Apple not do an Extended Wireless Keyboard, the numeric pad and arrow keys are greatly missed. Come on Apple, bring one out ....... please.

    • Written by from West ewell

    I have been trying to turn my ipad into a mini desktop replacement. An airprint printer and this keyboard have done very well. it is so much better than my old plastic form keyboard. I can type in comfort with great speed and hit the keys as hard as i want (normally very hard when im typing fast), and it doesnt hurt at all, unlike my old one. nice unobtrusive sleek design. havent had it long enough to say about the battery life but it is a lot more comfortable than my old one and i make almost no mistakes when typing at speed. extremely good quality. ine of the most amazing parts gas nothing to do with typing. the indicator light looks like its made out of solid aluminium. its only when i look very hard that i can see a series of marks for the light. best keyboard i have ever used!

    Another overpriced shiny pretty thing that's awful to actually use

    • Written by from Teddington

    A keyboard that:
    1) for no good reason has special characters in different places from any standard UK keyboard you're likely to use;
    2) doesn't have a dedicated key for #;
    3) doesn't have a delete button - only a backspace/delete
    These are not quirky, amusing little Apple idiosyncrasies but just plain old poor design
    Oh and I've yet to find an application where the volume controls on the keyboard actually alter the sound level

    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.

    Great Keyboard a bit power hungry

    • Written by from ouston

    Lets do the bad bits
    Against
    Battery life is very short compared to others
    No delete Key
    @ Key not in Uk position But this is standard for apple keyboard on every product

    Now the good bits
    For
    Design
    Construction
    Connection
    Ease of use
    Does what it says on the tin

    Cant really say the faults are that bad you get used to the @ and delete issues very quickly (if you have another Mac it should be second nature and the battery life can be solved by the use of a third pary charger available from apple.

    So easy to use

    • Written by from Worcester Park

    This is my first mac and I thought the keyboard an unneccessary luxury. I had my old third party wireless pc keyboard mouse combo. which was allegedly mac compatible. This took me about half a hour to get working. Apart from the keys being in the "wrong place" it worked ok. I have received both the mac own wireless keyboard and mouse today. It took seconds to set up! My only gripe is that the @ key is still in U.S. format. I will have to get to used it. I wish I bought this with the mac it is ergonomically better, takes up less space and is totally compatible.

    No delete key!

    Great keyboard, would use it all the time except it has no forward delete key. Makes it pretty much useless if you do a lot of text editing. Come on Apple - how basic is this?

    Small... but imperfectly formed

    • Written by from Aldridge

    I so wanted to love everything about my new iMac. But I'm resigned to barely tolerating this little keyboard.

    For looks, 10. It's as cute and shiny as a supermodel.

    For functionality, 4. It's not great at all. I'm a writer and touch typer and it's just not up to the job.

    Maddening to us, the spacebar doesn't work unless you hit it right in the centre which means I'm stopping every few seconds to backspace and make corrections; the @ symbol isn't in the standard UK place and there is no way (without downloading a non-Apple programme) to change it; to delete anything you need two hands and the lack of a numeric keypad is a seriously unhelpful omission.

    There is actually no need for the keyboard to be this small. Laptop size is fine for a laptop, for a static model of this expense I fully expected a less crowded keyboard with the basic functions all covered. Is that really too much to ask?

    I would snap Apple's hand off to swap this with something less elegant and wired that actually helps, rather than hinders, my ability to use this computer.

    Such a frustration. Pretty but dumb.

    Pretty to look at but key features are missing

    • Written by from Watford

    While the keyboard might be more compact there are serious deficits.

    The keyboard is good to look at, light and very nice to type on but this does not make up for the fact that keys are missing that are required for those of us that actually need to do work on their iMac.

    I do a lot of Word Processing and Spreadsheet work so the loss of page up, page down, end, home, the numeric keypad and delete (seriously who looks at a keyboard and think that not putting that key on a keyboard is a good idea) is too much.

    The poor functional design of the keyboard outweighs, for me at least, the atheistic design.

    I am now in the market for a new keyboard. I would prefer one with a numeric keypad, certainly has to have delete, this is pushing me either toward the Logitech K750 (for Mac) or the Apple wired keyboard.

    I know which one is currently winning and it isn't the one with the wire.
