    Love it

    • Written by from Nokesville

    When I first took it out of the box I thought it was going to be too small for my big paws. After hooking it up to my Mac Mini and actually using it I'm loving it. It fits nicely on my keyboard drawer. I love the "action" on the keys. Typing on it is easy.Two thumbs up!

    This is the best keyboard i've ever bought! Using it with my Macbook Pro for more than year and i still love the touch of pressed keys. When you type the text its pure pleasure...
    Only downside that USB cord is quite short... still 5 stars!

    A very nice Keyboard

    • Written by from Contoocook

    Ever since they came out with the flat design a couple years ago, I have been in love with it. When I got my MacBook Pro, then bought accessories for it so I could use it as a desktop computer, I was very excited to get this keyboard. I like that it has the extension cable, because I don't always need the longer cable, depending on how I'm set up, and it's nice to take it off. I don't seem to have the same issue as other people regarding the iPod connections. I plug my iPod Touch in through the keyboard's USB slots all the time because I don't have much room on my actual computer. The only thing that keeps this from being a full 5 stars is the fact that there is no wireless version. I really wanted a bluetooth keyboard, but I had to have the number pad also. So the bluetooth version lost out to this one for that reason. If they ever come out with a full size bluetooth keyboard, I will upgrade to that.

    Great keyboard, but WHAT THE!?

    • Written by from Jesmond

    This is a great keyboard. The key layout and spacing is fantastic and makes for very accurate typing. It's also nice and quiet to type with, which is important as I tend to press keys hard when I type, which can be very noisey on different keyboards.

    .......but when it comes to the USB ports all I can say is 'WHAT THE!!!!'.

    The two USB ports on either side of the keyboard are STILL lower power ports, and cannot even run a USB 2.0 memory stick!

    Seriously Apple, nobody uses USB 1 memory sticks anymore, and you cannot even buy a wired version of the Magic Mouse so why on Earth would you include LOW power USB ports!?

    If providing sufficient power to the USB ports is an issue, Apple should add support for an auxiliary USB cable from the Mac to the keyboard, or even add an AC power adapter, which would allow the ports to run at high power similar to USB ports that are now present on many monitors.

    So this keyboard is great, but could be better with high power USB ports.

    Is there a warrantee

    • Written by from New Haven

    I bought my keyboard less than a year ago along with one from MacAlley. The Apple keyboard already has a problem. The shift key doesn't work on the left side. The MacAlley keyboard is fine still. the Mac keyboard is a delight to use so concept is good. The actual is a piece of junk.
    I have an untold number of Mac keyboards around here that don't work from many generations of Mac. Why can't these guys make a keyboard as good as their computers?
    Same goes for the mouses made by Mac. I have a drawer full of them and many died after less than a couple of years of use. All have been replaced with off brands that last and work better.

    My keyboard with numeric keypad

    • Written by

    I have had this keyboard for almost 1 year and most of that time I have been very pleased with its performance. However, during the last 2 or 3 months a number of the keys have lost their smooth, quiet operation and are now what I call sticky. I have been trying to find an on-line fix for this condition with no success. It is difficult for me to get to the Apple Store near me because I am no longer driving. If there is an on-line fix I'd like to hear about it.

    technical difficulty

    • Written by from Mount Clemens

    I love this keyboard, easy to type and much less finger fatigue. Unfortunately when I turn on my printer,,,, It doesn't work. Then when I turn off my printer, I have to unplug it and plug it back in before it will work, very annoying, wish there was some fix, haven't found one yet.

    NO USB 2.0!!!

    • Written by from Muncie

    Ok, Here's the scoop.... I purchased this keyboard to go with my PowerMac G4. The keyboard would be fantastic with one exception. That being the fact that the website advertises the USB ports as 2.0. This is not the case! The only reason I switched to this keyboard from the old 2002 style keyboard was for the USB 2.0 ports! I'm kind of wanting my money back, Apple! If there's a simple solution to this, please fill me in, or update the dang hardware to match your advertisements! It won't charge any of my USB 2.0 devices, and those range from three iPod's:2nd gen iPod touch, 5th gen ipod classic, and a 5th gen iPod nano. It won't charge my iPhone4 either! I wouldn't have purchased this keyboard had the advertisement been accurate.

    Wish it were wireless

    • Written by from Celina

    I have had one of these since the day it came out and its still going strong. I work from home and am on the computer about 12 hours a day if not more. It almost looks brand new and the key action has only slightly stiffened up but that is actually not a bad thing.

    Either way, I just got a new Magic Trackpad to replace my MX1000 mouse that I have had for about 7 years now and I would really like a wireless version of this full keyboard. I have tried the Apple wireless one, but it doesn't have the number pad which I use daily. I don't need the USB ports on this and since they aren't powered, anything I plug into them seems to throw up an error about there not being enough voltage anyway. The only thing I could get it to successfully run was a dongle for a USB mouse.

    If Apple would make a bluetooth version of the full keyboard I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    I miss my old mac keyboard

    • Written by

    This keyboard is slim and elegant. I like the texture of the keys but not the tactile feel. After more than a year, i still have much more typos and have developed wrist pain. I wish my old trusty mac keyboard hadn't broken it was the most comfortable keyboard i've ever used.

    This rubbish isn't the slightest big ergonomic and a lot of people i know hate it. I wish apple would just swallow their pride and add one similar to the old one to the lineup. The Logitech Wave is better but not as good as my old white mac keyboard and i hear great things about the Matias Tactile Pro Keyboard 3.0. I do hear that it is not as good as the old mac with the clear sides that took two hours for people with mild ocd to clean. You know who you are.

    We switched to the IMac about a year ago from a Dell. Oh how I wish I would have tried to type on this thing before making this purchase!! I have come to the conclusion that it is simply IMPOSSIBLE for me to transition to this pathetic excuse of a writing instrument. It is my understanding that my Dell Keyboard won't work with the iMac, so I feel as though I am trapped in a marriage that is destined to fail.

    Great keyboard: best Apple has put out to date.

    • Written by from Weaverville

    This keyboard took some time to get use to especially with a protective cover on it. Nice to have the function keys at my finger tips so I can adjust sound, brightness, the dashboard right from my keyboard. Low profile makes it much easier to use than previous keyboards, but I do wish they make a full size wireless keyboard. I need the 10 key to do bookkeeping and for entering data into a spread sheet. Please Apple, bring back the full size wireless keyboard. I would buy it in a heart beat.

    Well, i was very excited to get this keyboard because i spilled water on my old one. The thing that i was most looking forward to was the "USB 2.0" ports...which i thought i could charge/sync my ipod touch with, but i get a low power notice. Its a great keyboard itself, but the false advertising dissapoints me.

    My family and I own three of these--one for each of our Macs. There was just one thing I was disappointed about--the function keys didn't really work with my (ancient) iMac G4, which has 10.2.8.

    But we never use that computer, so it's okay.

    Other than that one quibble, this keyboard is AMAZING. I'm not exaggerating. I tried to use the keyboards at my school, which are normal keyboards for PCs, and I realized I was uncomfortable typing, the keyboard at home was so great!

    I love this keyboard because it is sleek, attractive, and effortless to use. I prefer it to the wireless keyboard that now comes with the iMac because the other one is tiny and has no numeric keypad. Since some people like to type from their lap or other places, I see why they might prefer the wireless version, but since I like typing with my (long) forearms flat on the desk in front of me and the my hands stretched to the keyboard, I lose no convenience by not having the wireless keyboard.

    This keyboard, though expensive, will go perfectly with your Mac, be easy to type with, and look great on your desktop. If you don't mind the wire, I recommend this more than any other keyboard I've owned.

    Love this thing

    • Written by from Everett

    I really love this keyboard and as a recent convert to Mac computers I find the longer keystrokes on non-Apple keyboards very noticeable now when I'm out and about and have to use them (the fatigue happens quickly). My only suggestion is to make a wireless version of the full keyboard PLEASE!! Then it would get a 5-star rating from me.

    Fantastic Product, but why no Wireless Option?

    • Written by from Charlotte

    I love this keyboard, but why not provide this in a wireless option? You already make a beautiful wireless keyboard, but it doesn't have the full size arrow keys or numeric keypad - why not update this product to be wireless?

    Otherwise, this is the single greatest keyboard I've ever owned. I have two so far and am thinking of stockpiling several in case it's ever discontinued.

    Best keyboard ever

    • Written by from Somerville

    I love this keyboard. It's beautiful, minimalist, and functional. It's a dream to type on - the keys have reasonable travel distance; the keyboard itself sits low to your typing surface, reducing risk to repetitive stress injury; keys are spaced well (it uses the same key spacing as all keyboards since the original MacBook was introduced in 2006); and its full layout with numeric keypad lets me do rapid data input on the few occasions I need to (I'd rather not fiddle with pairing my iPhone just to get keypad functionality).

    As a PC user, I use the BootCamp drivers to get additional functionality out of the keyboard without having to add more of those unsightly media keys that began to invade our keyboards in the '90s. I've purchased three of these and use them on my various desktops. I can't ask much more from this keyboard...except for maybe a version with backlit keys like on the MacBook Pro...

    Good Honest Tough Keyboard

    • Written by from Southfield

    i bought 4 so far, i sell computers and the customer loves it so much they want it, so i sell it to them and just buy a new one.

    a mac is not a mac, with out this keyboard, it just not the same.

    if you type properly then you should have no issues with this.
    if you have really large hands ... or maybe really small hands you may have issues,

    i like it ... and enjoy typing on this bad boy.

    my wife always has a manicure, she loves it. no issues with nails and such.

    its worth the 50 bucks... you will go through 2 or 3 30 dollar keyboards before you will wear this one out... that means its acutely cheaper keyboard because of how long it lasts you...

    spill pop or coffee in your keyboard? no worries... just immerse it in warm water... run warm water over it for about 30 to 40 seconds... then get a towel and dry it the best you can.
    then set it upside down on a clean dry towel over night... by morning it will be good as new.

    This keyboard really is amazing. When you press on the keys, it just feels so good and the sound it makes enhances that feeling. And like all Apple products, it looks really nice.
