    Great - but why don' they have a wireless with a number pad?

    • Written by from SURBITON

    Makes no sense at all if you ask me.

    5 stars for this product tho.

    I used to get bad RSI - but all gone now - short throw keyboards are the way forward.

    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.

    Sleek & beautiful - no numeric keypad version - watch out on PC (tip)

    • Written by from CHIPPENHAM

    I got the keyboard with the new iMac and it is a lovely bit of kit, quite quiet and sleek. Unfortunately due to my work I need the numeric keypad so had to plug in the wired version I had and went to attach the wireless to the PC. I had a nightmare, the drivers needed updating, removing and updating over and over again and it kept losing connection on restart, with the iMac taking control over it. All I needed to do was to remove the keyboard from the Bluetooth preferences on the Mac (disconnected is not enough) which stopped it from butting in and stealing the wireless keyboard even though it had a USB version.

    I am now completely happy with it.

    Brilliant keyboard!!

    • Written by from Winchester

    I received the new keyboard and magic mouse with my replacement iMac. I think the keyboard is 100% better than any previous Apple keyboard. Great feel to it, fairly quiet and a much better size. Well done Apple!!

    Great keyboard

    • Written by from London

    This keyboard is expensive, but it's bluetooth and as small as you can make a keyboard before it becomes uncomfortable. The batteries last for ages, I got one to compliment my MacBook Pro with the mStand and I have to say the combination of those along with a magic mouse is absolutely killer.

    You must understand that any piece of technology should be treated with respect, if you have children or pets then you should try and make sure they don't get near your hardware unless you want it to be broken a lot quicker than it should be.

    A keyboard is for typing on, that's it. Don't use it as a baseball bat because it will break.

    Back to the bomb-proof keyboard!

    • Written by from CALNE

    I have had this keyboard for a little over 6 months now and I am less than impressed to say the least.

    The caps button has broken and so the light shines even if I have caps turned off. This in turn drains the battery quick and I have had to resort to turning the keyboard off when I shut down.

    I am constantly loosing connection even with fresh Duracell batteries and my mac being less than 2 feet away. My 'm' and 'u' buttons have packed up so when I try to hold shift for a captial 'U' I get 'IORTUY' instead of the desired character. Frankly I'm appalled by the quality of this product and have had ro revert back to my solid old mac keyboard.

    I am not a heavy typist and have always taken very good care of my apple products due to how expensive they are, but they have taken the mickey a bit with this one! I shall not be buying another new gen apple keyboard in the near future.

    Lovely piece of kit

    • Written by from CARDIFF

    Superb keyboard, follows apple design and quality. To anyone complaining its too small, its the same size as all apple laptops, so when you switch from one to the other, your fingers always know where to go. How annoying would it be if every keyboard was spaced differently?
    Someone also mentioned no delete key!!? I type from left to right so theres nothing to ever need to delete on the right side of the cursor, simple but true.
    It sticks to my desk well, cleans easily and is everything i expect a mac keyboard to be.
    The photoshop keyboard shortcut covers also transfer from my macbook to this keyboard!

    Poor quality impossible to work on!

    • Written by from London

    I had this for about 18 months now and it's already almost unusable. It keeps losing the connection to my iMac every 20-30 seconds so I have to reset. I exchanged batteries and done everything. Very disappointed since I love Apple for making everything so easy to use and good quality. This fails both of those criteria.

    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.

    No delete key!

    • Written by from London

    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?

    Very good, but not perfect.

    • Written by from Oxford

    The reason I purchased this keyboard is that I use my MacBook Pro keyboard so often that I eventually became used to the layout and chiclet keyboard and had a difficult time adjusting whenever I sat down to use my stationary keyboard.

    The design is great and it is sturdy and compact and I love how it can be put away in a drawer with ease whenever I want to free up space on my desk for books or papers. I have to complaints in terms of the design: (1) white keys get dirty and uglier more easily than do black keys--the keyboard should be offered in both colors; and (2) while I knew that I was getting a laptop keyboard mounted in a desktop casing, I can't help but miss having dedicated home, end and delete buttons.

    Keep a USB keyboard handy

    • Written by from Dubin 14

    Great keyboard until you are reduced to sacrificing chickens to get it to pair with a Mac Pro. It's happened several times over the last year. Normally I can re-pair thru Bluetooth preferences but the last time around the keyboard refused to enter discovery mode. The only fix was to physically walk it away from the house until the led started to blink again then turn around and go back home! After that it paired successfully though that's not a word I'd bandy about for this product.

    Luckily I had an old USB keyboard lying around or there would have been no way to log in.

    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!

    Got delivery of the keyboard not half an hour ago and had it up an running in less than a minute. I am using it attached to my 65Gb iPod Touch running iOS4. Works like a dream. I know some people don't like the size of it but for me with my small hands it is perfect.
    Buy one now!

    apple wireless blutooth Keboard

    • Written by from Horsham

    The apple Keboard is good, but they could make the Keboard backlit lit, like the mac book pro, it feels really nice to use., it has good range, and can connect very quikly to your device.

    Perfect for my needs

    • Written by from LONDON

    Really perfect keyboard for my needs - the responsibility of the keys is the best I ever experienced, ideal for even longer writing;
    the execution of the materials is just superb.
    Flawless connection with my iMac and as it is wireless easily movable wherever you need it to have it.
    Love it!
