    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. :/

    Kinda like it kinda don't

    • Written by from Fort Collins

    This is the first wireless keyboard I've used and sure like the lack of wires. Also, after 2 days, I like the touch better than I thought I would; however, the keys seem a little cramped compared to my old Apple Pro Keyboard even though the size looks about the same. Also, I know I'm going to miss the keypad. So, I'm not sure if I'll keep using it or not. I'll give it a little more time.

    Great space saver but miss the right control key

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    I love this new keyboard for its smooth click sound, good response and excellent space saving size. Never had a mac laptop so the function key takes some time getting use to but as a heavy linux shell and emacs user I would gladly trade that function key to have the right control key back.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Montreal

    First of all the design is great, and the low-profile keys are fantastic.
    Once you get used to these low-depth keys, you'll never want to return to the older high keys.

    Having said that, there are several issues to think about:

    1. Overpriced
    2. Keys wear out fast, so you'll need to replace then. 10 of mine have totally lost their letters ands characters
    3. I gave my friend my old keyboard and he didn't want to use it. He had trouble seeing the keys and would have wanted more
    contrast of the letters on the white base or even white letters on black bases.
    4. Check the serial numbers carefully. I purchased what I thought was an English keyboard, but waited too long to use it. When I
    connected it to my computer, it was French!!!!
    I couldn't return it to where I purchased it because 3 months was too long. The serial number for French and all writing on the box
    would have one think that one purchased an Englih one. Only one other sub serial number informs you on the box that this was

    Stopped working after a couple years

    • Written by from Austin

    This keyboard worked well for a couple of years and then inexplicably stopped working. I bought a less expensive off-brand version of the same type of keyboard for $30 and so far it has lasted almost as long as the $70 apple wireless keyboard.

    Drops characters if you type fast

    • Written by from Sausalito

    I like this keyboard, except for the fact that it drops characters, or mis-reads characters when I type the "delete" key quickly. In mid-delete the cursor will jump to a new location, then continue deleting. This is kind of maddening and requires correcting the unintended deletes.

    So if you plan to use this keyboard, don't type quickly!

    good addition for an ipad business oriented

    • Written by from Charlotte

    this tools is a plus if you are using the ipad as a substitute for your pc or mac during your travels..
    there are few things that is lacking though..
    1) numeric pad
    2) regular function like page up-down and ctrl+c / crtl+v .
    other than that is great. you can type quickly and precisely.

    Too compact

    • Written by from Calgary

    The keys are snappy and I find typing to be a pleasurable and efficient experience. Not unlike typing on the MacBook Pro keyboard. However, it's just too compact for a desktop keyboard. Why not bring out an extended wireless keyboard.. it would be EASIER-TO-USE when doing finance, math and accounting functions. (Yes creatives need to do their invoices too.) and still look great on the desktop without the ugly wire.

    bad build - WOBBLY

    • Written by from houston

    types nice, looks nice, well-designed, poorly built - wobbly. when typing the thing would rattle and rattle against the tabletop.

    here's a kicker - i bought the keyboard in the US, and took it to UK. went into apple store in UK to get a swap -- they refused to, citing trade agreements and throwing out words like "laundering" and "extortion".

    okay, regardless of whether Apple US or Apple UK are separate business entities, this is simple matter of warranty of the same product. i wasnt returning the product - asking to exchange a defective apple product for a working apple product.

    Numeric Keypad...

    • Written by from Tampa

    I like the wireless keyboard, but have found myself using using my old USB model because it has the numeric keypad section. This is just plain bad design. Leaving an extremely useful and core element of a keyboard out. Fix it. Other than that, it works just like the old one...

    50/50 shot

    • Written by from WEST TERRE HAUTE

    i bought my first one at the apple store with a mac mini and trackpad. it worked brilliantly for almost a year until my kid spilled my beer on it. now its in his misc. junk play drawer. so i bought a new one from best buy, being the closest apple store is an hour away. this one was complete junk. after two weeks it started losing connection every 15 seconds, and in mid type it will just repeat the same letter over and overrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and say that the batteries are dead when they're 2 days old. its on my coffee table and my mini is hooked up to my tv so i cant have an unsightly cord halfway across the room to trip over so i guess its time to go to the apple store or order one and cross my fingers. since i cant rate both individual keyboards i have to give it a 3. 5 for the first one and 1 for the second. wish me luck with the 3rd.

    The good and the bad

    • Written by from Walton

    This keyboard is a beautiful keyboard by all means, but how is it in use? Now if you have long finger nails, this is not an ideal keyboard for you. I find it hard to type on sometimes. The connection unfortunately is lost or gets disconnected every now and then. I wish it had the number pad on the right side. Typing long papers is alright, the keyboard has good feedback despite being so flat. the bottom arrows are rather small, so gamers probably should buy this, it's ease to hit another key. As for battery life, I didn't use it over one weekend and it died; rechargeable batteries are the way to go with this. All in all, it is ok, it has both goodies and downsides.

    Great, when it works....

    • Written by

    I've had this about 8 months, and the batteries die every 2 or 3. Occasionally, it will say "23%" or something similar, but they it still won't work. Caps lock key sometimes doesn't light up.

    Not worth the price

    • Written by from Newark

    It is a nice keyboard. The style is great. However, I just don't feel that it is worth $69.99. At least give me a full sized keyboard at that price. Kinda' feel ripped off.

    Great Keyboard, but not for Power Users

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    This is one of the best keyboards I've ever used. The sturdy aluminum allows unheard-of thinness while at the same time not feeling cheap. The keys are responsive and give excellent feedback. Bluetooth integration is superb, it works just like a USB keyboard would, and those critical seconds where a user would have to hold down a key in order to perform a certain function when the Mac is first booting up works flawlessly.

    The only downside is the lack of a wireless option with a 10-key numeric keypad. It's really a shame Apple got rid of this on their wireless keyboards. I think they got rid of it because the folks at Apple thought the 10-key was too "PC-like" and was only used for "number crunching," but I use it every day, especially when typing passwords. Just because I run a Mac doesn't mean I still don't type numbers. Please, Apple, please bring back the 10-key wireless keyboard!

    Good enough.

    • Written by from Villanova

    I've had this keyboard for a good 2 years, but this year, the lower row (zxcvbnm) just stopped working. I don't know what happened, but it was something with the cables inside. I didn't want to take it to the Apple Store to get it fixed cause that would just be more money. Instead, I got another wireless Mac keyboard, but it was a full-size (with the num. pad) solar powered Logitech one for $10 less than the smaller Apple one which works like a charm.
    SO yeah, I would only get this keyboard if you bought an Apple computer that came with it like my iMac, otherwise you can get a better less expensive one. It's still not bad.

    too short

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    Love that the keyboard is wireless, but don't like the dimensions. It's too short and is uncomfortable typing for a long time.
