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!

Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
I bought this keyboard in early january of this year along with a monitor and mouse for my macbook pro. I opted into the wired mod I bought this keyboard in early january of this year along with a monitor and mouse for my macbook pro. I opted into the wired model because I didn't need the range of the wireless one, and the number pad at the side is a nice addition for a student. I was skeptical as to weather or not I was going to like the keyboard, and it turned out to be an incredible investment. In my experience, the keys have just enough resistance to give a solid, undeniable "click" when pressed, but not so much as to make typing a chore. The inclusion of the OSX keys nested along with the function keys along the top is an invaluable feature in my opinion. I do have a few complaints however; first off, the key board is not backlit, which while it would be a nice feature, can be compensated for by turning a light on. Second, the builtin USB ports haven't had enough juice to operate anything I own, besides my iPod shuffle. Finally, the keys (being the white matte plastic) get dirty, I have never eaten at the keyboard, and all the keys are getting to the point where they wont come completely clean anymore. All in all, however, it is a nice keyboard …

What a miserable piece!
On my former PC, I had a Logitech keyboard that outlasted 2 computers -- six years! this miserable keyboard died after 9 months. On my former PC, I had a Logitech keyboard that outlasted 2 computers -- six years! this miserable keyboard died after 9 months. NEVER wet or abused.
I could not get into my iMac after restarting! Why? regardless of the state of the caps lock key, it was feeding ALL CAPS -- all the time. Whichg does NOT work with my all lower case master password.
So I was DOWN!
get something -- anything else!! …
