Apple Wireless Keyboard - Dutch
Use the Apple Wireless Keyboard on your desk, on your lap, or anywhere within 30 feet of your Mac or iPad — all because of its built-in Bluetooth technology. Its compact design takes up 24 percent less space on your desktop than full-size keyboards, so you have extra room to move the keyboard around and mouse comfortably alongside of it. You’ll also feel a difference when you type on its low-profile anodized aluminum enclosure with crisp, responsive keys. Use the function keys for one-touch access to a variety of Mac features such as screen brightness, volume, eject, play/pause, Mission Control, and Launchpad.
The Apple Wireless Keyboard requires just two AA batteries — one less than the previous model. And its intelligent power management system conserves battery life. So when you’re not using the keyboard, it automatically powers down. The instant you start typing, it turns back on. Use the on/off switch when you're away from your computer for a long time.

Best keyboard I have used.
I can type on this keyboard faster and with fewer mistakes than any other I have used. I used to think the keyboard in my old Pow I can type on this keyboard faster and with fewer mistakes than any other I have used. I used to think the keyboard in my old Powerbook G4 was the best I had used, until this was released. The response is great and keys are springy and always register a click. I like this keyboard so much that I bought one for work, with my own money, rather than use the cheap office one.
The battery life is great and a huge improvement over the first wireless keyboard. I think I change the batteries after four months and that is will daily use and I use it a lot, but can't remember it's so infrequent.
It's great at a desk and now I use it on the couch on my lap, with the Mac Mini connected to my TV. Same size keys as a regular keyboard, but small enough to tuck into the end of the coffee-table when not in use. Love that it goes into a stand-by/sleep mode and I never need to turn it off. Just stop using it and then tuck it away. No delay or waiting for it to re-connect when I come back to use it hours or a day later. If only there was a model with a touchpad (hint, hint). …

Heavy user. Sysadmin. High praise.
Having both a Macbook air and this wireless keyboard is a treat. The wireless keyboard (as well as the wired keyboard) have virtua Having both a Macbook air and this wireless keyboard is a treat. The wireless keyboard (as well as the wired keyboard) have virtually the same layout, save the function button, smaller control and alt keys, and small arrow-pad. This means that as I move from laptop-keyboard to wireless-keyboard, I do not have to adjust my typing habits to compensate for altered ergonomics.
The tactile response of the keys is noticeable yet not wearisome.
Bluetooth distance has never been a problem for me even paired with an tower outfitted with an external USB bluetooth dongle.
I am a daily user and have replaced the batteries in my laptop twice in about 7 months.
No gripes here. …

Me Too - Best Keyboard I've Used
As an electrical engineer for 32 years now and having experienced the evolution of keyboards as it occurred, I can honestly say th As an electrical engineer for 32 years now and having experienced the evolution of keyboards as it occurred, I can honestly say that this little guy is now the best I've used. I've owned an MBP 15" Retina for a year now (as my sole computing device) and have also recently purchased the Matias Mini Tactile Pro with the mechanical switches used in the old Apple extended keyboard, what many say was the best keyboard Apple ever made.
These are all great keyboards and, ultimately, this is a very subjective issue. But, for me, the new Apple Wireless takes the cake. The touch response has a little more throw, "kickback" and springiness than the MBP but nowhere near the travel and "clickiness" (or the sheer volume) of the Tactile Pro. IMO, the Apple Wireless perfectly nails the balance between these opposite ends of the spectrum.
For the life of me, I don't understand the lower-rated reviews, including those complaining about the lack of numeric keypad. How many people actually even use one anymore (accountants, etc, aside) and does it even begin to make up for the fact that your mouse (or trackpad) cannot be located in a more ergonomic position, closer to your body and keyboard? If you really need one, Apple makes one, albeit wired. But, isn't it most likely the case that if you need an extended board, it's going to be sitting in one place most of the time anyways?
Regarding battery life, I haven't owned mine long enough yet to tell, so I'm hoping I get the same results as those reporting great results in that category too. Apparently this newer model automaticaly powers down when not in use and then back up when tapped into use again, so the complaint about not knowing when it's turned off have been addressed in the newer models. …

Batteries Get Stuck
