    Not as good as the Wired Keyboard

    • Written by from Winkler

    Apple's keyboards (both desktop and notebook) are the best keyboards in the world. But I believe the Wireless Keyboard is the worst of the bunch. Although great portability for an iPad and super light, the keyboard feels cheap, doesn't offer the numeric keypad and the keys are almost TOO bouncy. Oh, and its quite expensive.

    My preference still is the Apple Wired Keyboard, regardless of its lack of portability. It feels sturdy, the keys are perfect and the angle of typing is much easier on my wrists.

    Otherwise, the Wireless keyboard is super stylish, small, light and looks impeccable on a desktop.

    no warning when batteries die

    • Written by from irvine

    the best looking keyboard on the market. but, time and time again - i get a "battery low" warning about 1 minute or less before the thing decides to shut down. useless! no time to charge up another set before it dies. that in itself is horrible usability. it's been out for awhile, and still no improvements in the software that manages it.

    Don't like the smushed keys and the lack of the delete key

    • Written by from Cardiff by the Sea

    I am a writer and use my Mac 8-10 hours a day. While I love the WiFi aspect of the new keyboard, I don't like the missing delete key (the delete key is now a backspace key and you have to hold down the function key to get it to delete from the right). Nor do I like the lack of space between the letter keys and the caps lock and shift keys on the left. I hit the caps lock key all the time not meaning to. All that is really annoying and I do hope they rectify this in the next iteration.

    Needs backlit keys like the Mac laptops

    • Written by from Grande Prairie

    It's okay. No complaints from me about battery life or reliability. Nice weight and balance to it. The keys do seem to attract grime and dirt easily.
    Biggest problem is that it needs the awesome backlighting that most of the Mac laptops have. (I would happily sacrifice tons of battery life if that's what it takes.) The backlit keys of my MacBook Air are so awesome, yet when I hook it up to the TV and take this wireless keyboard to the couch I lose that great feature.

    Why didn't Apple?

    • Written by from Port Charlotte

    Why didn't Apple make this a rechargeable keyboard? They are touting their battery technology and clearly they could have added it to the keyboard with little effort and I know MAC fanatics would pay extra for that. I would

    Why didn't Apple make a version with a numeric keypad? The old Apple Wireless Pro Keyboard was great with the exception of the closely spaced keys and the poor battery performance, both of which could easily have been resolved.

    Why doesn't Apple offer this in black? Some people don't like white you know.

    Other than that it is a great keyboard. If they added the numeric keypad I would give it a 10 instead of a 3.

    Needs numeric keypad

    Great keypad but needs to be full size like the tethered Numeric Keypad.

    not enough features

    • Written by

    it is a cool keyboard but there is nothing astounding other than it is small. i have a razer black widow (if you mac lovers even know what that is) which is WAY better with awesome dedicated macro key than this, but is 4 times the size and 10 times the weight

    Wittle Apple KeyBode.....

    • Written by from Meriden

    Aww.... such a kewt keybode..... goochy goochy goo.....

    Basically, they took the keyboard from a laptop, and made it a wireless keyboard for a desktop. The only reason being so that you could keep one of your USB slots available. I've read a couple of reviews stating that it goes through batteries like water - which means you have to turn it OFF when you're done ("Sorry honey, I was turning off the computer, and the keyboard, and the mouse").

    Be aware this keyboard comes with no HOME or END or forward DELETE button, and that the number keys are gone. Very annoying if you're used to those features.

    The wireless mouse is nice - although, mine has lost connection a few times and is disconcerting when it happens ("Honey? The computer's frozen!")

    I got these when I purchased the iMac, but you have to remember the iMac was designed for "small footprint" and "portability". SO if you plan on being portable with your computer, then these are great (just remember to turn them off). If your computer is going to sit on a desk, and not use many USB ports (and you don't want to be bothered changing batteries every couple of months) stick with what makes you comfy.

    Good Idea, Ridiculous Scale

    • Written by from WYNNEWOOD

    This keyboard is fabulous: the keys are firm but responsive, and it looks great. However, there's one BIG problem: It's ridiculously small. I don't know how people use this thing, and I'm accustomed to my laptop's keyboard!

    Decent Keyboard. Lacking the Num Pad

    • Written by from Northridge

    It's a nice small keyboard. Pretty simple and not too many buttons. Just wish it had a Num Pad and it would make inputing numbers in charts and word processor a whole lot easy.

    Really cool design, but there is no clear indication if it is on or off and if it is connected or not.

    Pros and Cons

    • Written by from la crosse

    Pros- it is very protable and light.
    Cons- it doesnt have a number pad so i dont really like that, it takes some getting used to, and it does have display settings on it wich is great.
    It doesnt have the number panel, my mom doesnt like that and complains everytime she uses it and that gets really annoying so im thinking about buying a wired keyboard.
    The battery life is very good i bought it about 2 weeks ago and it came with batteries and its about 50% gone and hasnt used much.

    I was really looking forward to the wireless keyboard and mouse. I love the look and the feel of both, but I am very disappointed with the lack of the numeric pad and delete forward key.

    I can type fast on this keyboard, and I do love the wireless capability.....BUT....I think Apple really needs to rethink the missing numeric pad!

    doesn't work with my iPad

    • Written by from Sharon

    I love this keyboard and it works great with my iMac. It doesn't work with my iPad. The iPad sees it but does not pair with it. I don't see other commenting but I can't be the only person with this issue...

    Easy to use, but......

    • Written by from Richmond

    Sorry, it is second times I can not log in my new I Mac, because of the wireless keyboard. It was not working, I have no clues why. I did change battery but still not work. I have to go to Apple Store ask for help. Maybe wire keyboard is better.

    Great--but BATTERY HUNGRY!!!($)

    • Written by from St. Catharines

    This is a beautiful mouse--sleek, responsive...and wireless. Problem: It goes through batteries every couple of weeks. I am now trying to find something as comfortable, but unfortunately, w/ a wire. Even buying in bulk, I'll pay for a new mouse in no time w/ the money I save in not buying batteries. An environmental disaster...expensive...and frustrating when working on an important project. Never thought I'd give an Apple product a bad review. I hope I never have to again.

    Love this keyboard...when it works!

    • Written by from MCKINNEY

    I truly love this keyboard, when it works! I frequently have to re-pair and tonight, it pairs partially, meaning, it sees it, but then cannot connect. Painful! The caps light has always worked haphazardly. I have had this system for about a year now. Looks like I will be at Apple, yet again, getting another keyboard... :(

    like everything but the inconvenience

    • Written by from Orange

    Wireless is convenient and has worked flawlessly with my new iMac for about 3 months. Keys feel good now that I'm used to them. The only drawback for me is the absence of a right-delete key. The delete key performs backspace delete. To delete to the right, the fn must be depressed at the same time as delete. Since the keys are about 11 inches apart it requires left hand to depress fn and right hand to depress delete. Quite inconvenient! Before purchasing, the salesman told me I could create a shortcut to avoid having to use both hands. I have found no one at Apple who knows how to create a shortcut to enable one to use only the right hand to right-delete. Shame on Apple!

    It's okay. I REALLY want the numbers on the side back like a REGULAR keyboard. Like what they used to have! They should give us consumers a choice between the two. I use the numbers on the side a lot since I'm a math geek. :/
