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!

Best of the Apple keyboards.... Almost
the 27in iMac i purchased came with a wireless keyboard and wireless magic mouse. The wireless keyboard does not have a numeric k the 27in iMac i purchased came with a wireless keyboard and wireless magic mouse. The wireless keyboard does not have a numeric keypad. But, I'm from the financial and programming world, so using a numeric keypad is a must. So, my options were to buy a separate wireless numeric keypad (which i hear is junk) or buy this full sized wired keyboard. I chose this full sized keyboard and I am glad I did. This keyboard works like a charm. So much more responsive than ANY wireless keyboard and it is FULL sized, with a numeric keypad which is exactly what i need. The only (tiny) gripe I have is that it takes up a USB slot and they're aren't that many on the iMac. …
