    Why is the 10 key pad not on every keyboard

    • Written by from Redmond

    I originally got the wireless Bluetooth keyboard for the iMac when I purchased it. Its a good keyboard, but the wired 10 key with USB ports has made work more efficient. I no longer have to go to the back of the iMac to plug in a thumb drive, I don't have batteries to worry about or connectivity. Also adding the few other buttons like home, page up, page down etc just makes life easier. The Keys are spread out just enough to make typing easy. It looks great and the function is 100x better then the smaller wireless. This keyboard should be standard on the iMacs.

    Just short of Excellent...

    • Written by from Kelowna

    I cannot understand for the life of me why Apple did not produce a full size keyboard in wireless. I would gladly sacrifice the two USB ports for wireless! Other than that (thanks for the vent) it is an excellent keyboard. Stylish, functional, and easy to keep clean! Excellent value, and compliments my iMac beautifully.

    Best keyboard I've ever owned

    • Written by from Turku

    I've tried Microsoft's Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, which, in addition to having a ridiculously long and pointless technically numeristic name, also broke very easily; I tend to spill coffee on my keyboards quite often, and they tend to break. But this keyboard didn't, it functioned perfecly after a small spill, and it's also beautifully ergonomic to use, even if it's not a split keyboard. I believe this is the fastest typing and best feeling keyboard I've ever used. And resilient as well!

    Best. Keyboard. Ever.

    • Written by from Belleview

    I have been using this keyboard since 2007. I love it. Nothing else even comes close. I type faster and with no struggling at all. It is hard for me to find a keyboard that I don't have to fight with... I have very, very large hands, and this particular keyboard allows me to just focus on creating the content that I want, not on how/where I place my hands. If something happens to this keyboard, I'll go buy another one just like it.

    Slim is in

    • Written by from Winkler

    Been on an Apple shopping spree lately.. and this thing just fits right in to the rest of the stuff I've bought. Slim, aluminum, the keys are perfect and I am so glad to have a numeric keypad back. looks great beside magic mouse and apple display.. a definite must for people who are in front of a desktop computer for many hours in a day!

    First step into quality...

    • Written by from Wroclaw

    I just ordered my first MacBook Pro and bought this keyboard, Magic Mouse and HDMI connector to organize my office desk.
    I need to wait for Mac so I connected the keyboard to my present ThinkPad and... I am totally amazed!
    ThinkPads are known for their brilliant keyboard for high amount fo typing, but this is phenomenal.

    It's so easy to press the button, yet the action-point of it is so well rcognizable that I can't imagine any other keyborad for the future.

    The only downsides -
    1. I need to get used to switched "ctrl" "alt" keys
    2. Lack of insert key.
    3. it's not wireless.

    It's brilliant - buy this and keep that smile on your face.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Sherwood

    I love this keyboard! I have been using it since it first came out (three years ago in 2007!). It takes a little while to get used to it because it is so thin, but afterwards, you can't go back to a regular keyboard.

    I prefer the numeric keyboard to the newest one without the arrows and number pad because I use those keys a lot.

    I also love the USB ports. I use one side for my mighty mouse (when the battery to my wireless mouse dies) and the other, I use for small USB drives or to sync my iPhone.

    I use the F3 keyboard shortcut quite frequently to go back and forth between windows and also the controls on the F7-F12 keys for my iTunes.

    This is really a great product and I have never had any issues with it.

    Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad - brilliant

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    This is the best keyboard I've ever typed on, and I've been typing on Mac keyboards all day long for the past 25 years - literally. It's even better than the previous model, the "pro" keyboard was bad; that thing was absolutely unusable (so I used a MacAlly iKey).

    This keyboard has the side effect of making the transition to typing on a MacBook Pro keyboard seamless; it used to be hard not to make mistakes all the time after typing on a keyboard with the normal amount of travel.

    I wish they made a wireless version with a 10-key pad.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Addictive

    • Written by from Skokie

    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.

    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.
