    BEST Keyboard Out There!

    • Written by from Binbrook

    When this keyboard was released I thought it looked a little funny. I tried it out and instantly loved it. I do not use any other keyboard. This has the best chiclet keys out there. The wired version is a must for music/video production, as the keypad is crucial for key commands. I routinely take this on the go - It's lightweight and durable. Great job Apple!

    Ive tried everything... Im using this for programing in Xcode and data entry. Apple makes the best / fastest keyboard. Even the old style was ahead of the game.

    Perfect for Mini owners

    • Written by from Titusville

    I LOVE this keyboard. I work at a desk, so wireless keyboards are useless for me. After working on a PC for many years, I really missed the numeric keypad. I am a happy man! But wait! There's more! 2 USB ports... so I don't have to reach around the back of the box to find a port... AND... they are carefully hidden! Great purchase!

    My new favorite keyboard

    • Written by from Houston

    I'm a new convert to Mac from the PC world, and I use a Macbook Air at home (unfortunately, I still have to use PCs at work). I picked up this keyboard at a local Apple store a few days ago, and I like it better than any keyboard I've ever used - which is significant, because I've been working with computers of various types since the 1970s and I've probably used just about every keyboard invented at one time or another.

    For typing, a keyboard is all about the feel. Some people like an audible click, others prefer quiet keys, some are ok with soft, no-feedback keys, while others need to feel a click, and so on. Because keyboards are such personal things reviews may be of limited value, but I'll do my best.

    I like this keyboard's metal construction, mainly because it gives it weight. It stays put, which is a problem for me with lighter keyboards. It's compact, in spite of the complete key complement. I like the flat keys, although other reviewers disagree with me. Someone said that it's impossible to be sure that your fingers are centered on the keys because everyone knows keys should have concave surfaces. Maybe it's just because I've been typing so long, but that's a complete non-issue for me. I like the slight key travel, and I appreciate that in spite of it, the tactile click from these keys is perfect, in my opinion.

    Several reviewers have commented that these keyboards fail quickly, and obviously I don't have enough time with this one to comment on that - but if it fails in the near future I'll revise this review.

    A beautiful piece of kit SOMETHING ONE CAN ADMIRE when not in use

    • Written by from llandudno

    We all know Apple design products that are user friendly and a thing of beauty, but their Numeric Keyboard can be placed on anyones desk and simply admired for its aesthetic charms and over all design.

    I ordred mine when initially configuring my iMac online so that i could have the computer just the way i wanted it.
    I had the choice of either the standard wireless Bluetooth keyboard or the Numeric keyboard, i am very pleased i went with the larger Numeric version..

    I now own both and for some reason the keys on the Numeric version feel softer to the touch and more responsive, there's not much in it but the extra facilities on the Numeric version as well as its extra width on my desk make it more visually appealing.

    Place it on the desk of someone who is unused to an over engineered computer work tool and they will simply admire it.

    Those who have never seen a Apple product in the flesh so to speak will pick it up and admire it's construction, beautifully turned aluminium alloy and ever so lite keys that never punish the fingers over extended use.

    For me having a wired keyboard gives me the added security that i will not loose the signal like the Bluetooth alternative, but its only when you place both keyboards side by side, the Numeric pad looks more attractive but how does one separate an Apple product by looks alone.

    The length, extra keys and more gorgeous aluminium alloy for your money makes it my firm favourite.

    What other computer keyboard is as aesthetically pleasing to the eye than one designed by Apple.

    Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad 2.0

    • Written by from BARRIGADA

    Very comfortable keyboard. And this - the only option for people who work with numbers. For example, in accounting or communications. What I expect from Apple?
    First, the new interface USB 3.0.
    Second, backlit (!) keyboard with numeric keypad like Macbook keyboard.

    My Most Favorite Keyboard--EVER!!

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I loved this keyboard from the first touch. I have typed professionally doing medical transcription since 1975. I love the touch. It is extremely quiet. I have long gel fingernails and I have not scratched or dented these keys. I have literally worn off the letters on many other keyboards. I will never use anything but this one! It is clean and sleek, and hands down the best I have ever used.

    Make a backlit iMac keyboard please!!!

    • Written by from Rockledge

    I have both the new iMac keyboard and the wireless keyboard. Both are superb quality, but I have to wish that Apple had made the wired version backlit like the Mac laptops. My wife's new Mac Pro Air is terrific, and the keyboard is so much nicer to use in dimmed lighting (such as you might use when gaming on your iMac.) Please take this as a suggestion, and not as a complaint--this is the best keyboard I've had in thirty years.

    Fantastic Keyboard

    • Written by from Fort Erie

    I have used a lot of keyboards, and I have to say this is by far the best and most comfortable keyboard that I've ever used. the only way I could see Apple improve it is by making it backlit like their MacBook Keyboards. Great job Apple.

    Our 2nd Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

    • Written by from Toronto

    This is an excellent keyboard. Its designed really well, built to last. We have 2 of these keyboards, and use them with our Mac Mini's. The keyboard is compact, and has to USB ports at the bottom. They don't take up much space and the keys feel great.
    Love them!

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!

    • Written by from Denver

    People please, buy this frickin keyboard! It's the frickin best one I have ever used! I bought the wired keyboard over the Magic Keyboard for 3 reasons. 1: It's #20 cheaper than the Magic Keyboard. 2: It has that numeric pad. 3: It has a USB 2.0 port on each side. It also works with Windows, although some special Mac keys (such as brightness adjustment) might not work. To anyone with a Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook, or even a Windows desktop or laptop, I recommend this keyboard!!!!

    Great design and perfect layout

    • Written by from los angeles

    I've been working on my Mac Pro with a Windows keyboard, and finally switched over - what a nice change.
    Not only are my function keys matching my macbook keyboard now, but the usb ports on the keyboard is a handy feature too.
    Very happy with this purchase.

    The Best Keyboard

    • Written by from Wentzville

    The Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad is the best keyboard I have ever used. It is very comfortable to type on due to its slightly angled profile and separated keys. Additionally, this keyboard is one of the best looking keyboards on the market—almost unrealistically thin and light, and made from gorgeous bead-blasted aluminum.

    great design- sleek, w/2-USB ports, and comfortable

    • Written by from Tracy

    I am an auditor and business grad student; I work a lot with numbers. This is the best keyboard w/numeric keypad that I have ever purchased. I have been a long time PC/laptop user and when I switched to MacBook Pro the keyboard design drove me nuts. This keyboard made the transition so much easier. The keys are not as bunched together so that typing for long hours is not a problem; the added bonus is that it has the numeric keypad, which is very important to me. It is sleek, light, and comfortable on your fingers, and it has two USB ports. It is so light I and slim that I can even take it to class in my backpack. In addition, one of my biggest gripes about the MacBook Pro was that it did not have enough USB ports; this keyboard solved that problem. Now if only Mac would design a standalone numeric keypad (without the full keyboard alpha keys, etc.) with the same look, feel, and functionality, I would be even more ecstatic!

    Best keyboard

    • Written by from Tarzana

    Love the feel of it. Most comfortable keyboard I've ever used. After years of constant use works same as day I got it... Just don't spill coffee on it. It does not like liquids and will not recover after a spill.

    Love this keyboard!

    • Written by from Niagara on the Lake

    I bought this keyboard back in 2007 with my original MacBook.

    Still works like it did on day one. Easy to clean, looks great.

    FANTASTIC to type on. The keys are perfectly spaced out so there's less errors when typing.

    Also charges your iPhone / iPod, IF your Mac has high-powered USB ports.

    There is no better keyboard for your Mac.

    Not sure about the one-star reviews

    • Written by from Redmond

    I looked through the one-star reviews to see what the general consensus was and it was all about keys not working. I've had this keyboard that I'm typing on right now for over 2 years and it still works *perfectly*. I tend to think that the ones that don't work are the ones where food or drinks get spilled on them. I can't think of any other reason. I imagine that these are probably more sensitive than other keyboards just by the nature of how the switches work and the thinness of the overall profile. So, keep your work area clean and it should be just fine.

    As far as the quality of this keyboard: I love it. Easy to type on, quiet, and fast. The tactile feedback works, even with such a short and soft stroke. I rarely "miss" on this keyboard.
