    Works well with iPad.

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    This is a typical keyboard that works well with the iPad as well as Windows PCs. Nothing too special, except the inclusion of a Caps Lock indicator (usually not available on wireless keyboards). The keyboard does use a lot of battery which needs to be replaced often. You can use it with AA rechargeable batteries but it does not come with charging capabilities.

    A small advice to apple, lower the power consumption and use a single AA battery and allow it to be charged over USB or with a small dock.

    You Get What You Paid For

    I got this wireless keyboard a Futureshop yesterday. The product is in stellar condition, the built quality is excellent and it is SO small compared to PC keyboards :).

    It takes a bit of time to get used to the keyboard. It has NO keyboard flex whatsoever and the keys seem to be very responsive.

    I'm using the keyboard with an Acer 3820tg laptop, and its integrated bluetooth module. It took less than five minutes to set up and works perfectly with the module (I my Logitech wireless keyboard and even my Microsoft mouse working).

    The keyboard is compact yet very sturdy and looks very resistant. The only downsides are that the functions keys do not work when used with a PC (even the play/pause/etc buttons) and that there is no delete key (when used with a pc). It instead is used as a backspace. In windows you can delete something with Ctrl+D, but in applications you often need the real delete key. I heard that the software "EventGhost" could adress the issue.

    It's the 2th apple product that I've bought in my life (1st one was an iPod Touch) and I am very satisfied with my products as they just work PERFECTLY. My next plan: Get a Apple laptop!

    Great Keybord, Needs Numbers

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    I got this for my macbook pro and it works beautifully. It has the exact same dimensions as EVERY apple keyboard from the last few years, so as a touch typer it is easy to switch back and forth. It is super durable and super light. my only complaint is that it doesn't have a keypad. This is inconvenient not only because of the functionality of the keypad, but because it is narrower and that makes it harder to type with it on your lap. over all I am extremely satisfied with this product.

    Very nice keyboard!

    • Written by from Houston

    I'm new to Mac, so with my purchase of a Mac Mini and a MacBook Air, I decided to complete my collection and spring for the Magic Mouse and the Wireless Keyboard.

    First off, out of the box, it's ready to go, batteries and all. It's extremely simple to connect to your computer, and you don't have to worry about turning it on and off all the time to save the battery (there's a built-in 'sleep' mode).

    The only downside is that Apple doesn't offer a wireless keyboard with a numeric pad ... something that some people like, but others need. While my wife won't be doing her college math homework on one, I love everything else about this keyboard.

    Recommendation: Unless you absolutely have to have a numeric pad, this is the keyboard that goes perfectly with your Mac!

    Does what I expected it to

    • Written by from Shoreline

    I have a 15" MBP which I move between my family room and my office. When in the office, the MBP sits on a notebook stand from another manufacturer. I previously used a PC-compatible USB keyboard in the office, but I was often frustrated by the different key layouts on the MBP and the PC keyboard.

    The Apple Wireless Keyboard is an ideal solution for me. It has exactly the same size and layout as the MBP's keyboard so I can seamlessly move between the two rooms without having to mentally translate my keystrokes.

    As some reviewers have noted, it has neither a numeric keypad nor a forward delete key; but neither does the MBP. And besides, even a quick glance at the graphics of the Apple Wireless Keyboard on the Apple Website makes it clear what keys the device does, and does not have.

    I use my keyboard with my iPad to type notes in class and it is great but it would be so much better if you had a case for it!

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I love how small this is and feels just like my macbook pro. Wish it was backlit, but can't get everything you want. No problems yet and it's a great way to keep the wear-and-tear down on my pc.

    No Numeric Keypad: Beauty over Utilitarianism

    • Written by from Batesville

    This kerfuffle about no numeric keypad on the mac wireless keyboard reminds me of falling in love with the "perfect" person...only to want them to change once you have your claws into him or her. The wireless keyboard doesn't have a numeric keypad...because it doesn't. Apple products are about aesthetics as much as design and features. Aesthetics are what true Apple Heads have always coveted. Apple does its best to meld the three. But in the end, it has to feel like art. And if utilitarian aspects, like a numeric keypad, detract from its beauty, lightness/contour, and tactile experience...it has to be jettisoned. This is what all the PC converts to Mac have to understand. Otherwise, break up with Apple and find something else. But don't compromise a beautifully designed Apple product. (Apple please don't start compromising your aesthetics to comply with the masses who are just discovering your products. True AppleHeads have always known who they are and don't want to be brought down several levels. Keep doing what you've always done: making art.)

    • Written by from Carlisle

    I am one of those people who insists on having an external keyboard and mouse for my laptop and I have discovered that I prefer the Apple peripherals (Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard). The keys feel great under your fingers and have no flex, just like on the MacBooks. I do wish, though, that Apple would make a wireless keyboard with a numerical pad. Just a small complaint but it is something you get used to over time. Other then that, no complaints.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Desert Hot Springs

    I love this keyboard. I don't really like "traditional" keyboards. I don't like a lot of wires all over the desk. I use it along with the Magic Mouse mainly because I use an external monitor with my MacBook Pro. All in all it is a great keyboard. It's not for everyone, but It works for me.

    Pros: Sleek, Sexy, Aluminum, Bluetooth, Easy to pair, It Just Works.

    Cons: No 10 Key (The reason the fifth star is not selected.)

    I would suggest you try it out first at a local Authorized Apple Retailer or Apple Store.

    Brilliant.

    • Written by from Dewsbury

    Okay, I'll keep this short and simple.

    Beautifully packaged, easy to set up. Very responsive and fast, battery life is amazing, feels good to type on. Best keyboard I've ever had!

    Only one thing... it needs a back light like the MacBook Pro keyboards!

    Other than that, perfect.

    It is very well rounded I like it just I wish I could use a mouse for my iPad to make it more of a desktop I know it takes away from the touch screen but it makes it more hands free and let the user have a greater experience I know the only way to get a mouse on your iPad is to jail brake but I'm not stupid

    Great keyboard but the caps lock button jams (both off and on) every so often. Probably should take it back to the shop but haven't had the time.

    iTouch and the wireless keyboard

    The wireless keyboard works great... with a Mac or an iPad.

    I hope Apple will make some changes to the iTouch so it will work with it to someday, but for now it does not.

    Good Piece of Kit

    • Written by from BRIDLINGTON

    Excellent.
    It can even be used with your iPhone 4 to type texts/emails etc. I tend to use it more with my iPhone than the iPad.

    It stands the iPad / iPhone in a perfect position for you to use; defeats the object in having a netbook or (day I say it) a laptop to some extents.

    Only downside (hence 4* instead of 5*) is that the connector feels somewhat 'flimsy' I bet after several months of regular use it will get damaged. The dock could do with a little more support.

    Shame the official iPad case does not work with this dock. I have a zagg skin cover on my iPad so it makes the removal of the iPad from the case even more difficult.

    4.5 stars actually

    • Written by from Tallmadge

    I love this keyboard too - light weight, good key feel, and wireless. Works with my iMac and iPad. It is the best Mac keyboard I've used so far.

    But. Like many here - really, really miss forward Delete key (among others). As a touch typist, there are just some things that make sense.

    Second. As to the nasty poster who called us complainers fools for wanting END, HOME, PG Dn/Up, and forward Delete, etc. I guess you just LOVE using two hands and more fingers to do EVERYTHING? Personally, I call it foolish to stick to less efficient methods out of pure stubbornness.

    I am of the less is more philosophy. Seems like a DUH issue to me.

    I want to use the fewest possible keys, clicks, and hand movements to get the job done. [Expecting the obvious salacious jokes from the weak-minded.]

    The shortcut issue is really my biggest complaint about Apple apps and keyboards.

    How long did it take before Apple caved on the two button mouse option? Well, they need to get a clue on the keyboard as well.

    And yes, I can just go buy a Microsoft ARC as one Mac admin advised me. I *might* do that IF even one stubborn Mac defender can offer a compelling reason why Apple refuses to have a true Delete key.

    complainers are fools

    • Written by from Stamford

    everyone please be advised that so many of the complaints below are invalid. these people do not know how to use mac products and therefore assume the keyboard is incapable of certain features.

    scrolling, pg up/down, delete fwd/back, blah blah blah - learn how to use command/function/control/option keys. all your worries are solved. my macbook pro doesn't have pg up/down, but its still the best laptop on the market

    to the complaints about numeric keyboard - anyone can see from the pictures that it is absent. don't buy the product if it doesn't have the specs you desire. if you do purchase, you can't give poor grade based on features you knew were absent prior to purchase
