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!

I'm happily buying a new one.
I bought this in 2008. I prefer the cable, because I find batteries disagreeable, and Apple stopped selling a wireless keyboard wi I bought this in 2008. I prefer the cable, because I find batteries disagreeable, and Apple stopped selling a wireless keyboard with the keys that are on this one (full size arrow keys, numeric keypad, &c.). After 7 years of brutal use, the plastic sleeve of the cable just as it exits the keyboard failed and at least one conductor inside it failed, so it no longer connects. It has been dropped more times than I could count, has dents, and still lasted for 7 years.
I always used mine with a keyboard protector cover, so no fluids, whether from beverages or cleaning products ever entered it. I like this keyboard better than any other one I have ever used, and I first used a keyboard when it was on a typewriter, in 1965. …
