    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.

    Compact Key Board

    Great key board, it would be perfect if the next block of keys were included ie End, Home, Page up, Page down, etc

    Very good, but lacking one thing

    • Written by from Largo

    I love my wireless keyboard. It is both visually and functionally appealing. I wouldn't give it up. But please, Mr. Jobs, add a numeric keypad for those of us who type lots of numbers!

    Love keyboard but not the recent update!

    • Written by from Nevada City

    I have this keyboard as well as the magic mouse. I got them both so that I can hook up my macbook pro to another monitor and save the laptops LCD... It was working fine to awake my laptop when the monitor was shut but now since the recent keyboard update - it won't wake up the computer! WHY APPLE? I loved my little setup and paid a pretty penny for it. WIth the bigger monitor I used to watch movies from far away and just used the keyboard like a remote control.

    Only missing a number pad

    • Written by from Rio Rancho

    This is a great keyboard that is very reliable, small, and sturdy. As a manager of a medium sized network (125 staff) I am constantly having requests to replace these wireless keyboards with the wired keyboard containing the number pad.

    Just about every professional industry standard graphics/audio/video editing system takes advantage of the number pad, so this is really a keyboard for people who only use their computer for typing and browsing the web.

    For what it does, it works great! I just wish there was a different version with a number pad.

    elegant and pleasant to use

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    This is really a very nice piece of equipment, easy on the eyes with pleasing tactile feedback. Took a little while to get used to, it seems to have a little less travel from key to key than a standard key board so there were a lot of typos for the first few days but i adjusted to it. The only potential downfall is the angle. Normally I use a gel wrist support to avoid fatigue and repetitive motion injury. The low profile of this keyboard makes that virtually impossible so with heavy use i find there is a little hand stress. Its just a little bit harder to stay in the proper ergonomic position. For slamming out emails and regular keyboard use its perfect. I don't know if i would use it to write novel.

    Excellent design

    • Written by from Rehoboth

    Keyboard is nice and slim and has a great feel when typing. The only problem is the lack of a numerical pad such as on the wired keyboard. This is only a small drawback, but I would not recommend this keyboard for anyone that relies heavily on the numpad. Otherwise a great keyboard!

    Very Nice But Just A Little More Refinement

    • Written by from Dallas

    This keyboard is nice to use all around including writing papers, coding, and doing creative media. I really like the small footprint of the keyboard since I can have my mouse to the keyboard.

    I feel Apple can improving one thing on their next iteration of the keyboard:
    Just a little better keystroke feedback. I still find myself having more typos using this keyboard compared to my mechanical keyboard. If this could be properly addressed, I wouldn't take any other keyboard in the world.

    I would like to give 4.5 stars if possible.

    So far only very minor problems.

    • Written by from DeKalb

    1) Mine came with a tiny, forgivable bump in the brushed aluminum on the left hand side.
    2) More importantly, the keyboard does occasionally double type characters as others have complained about. However, every time it has done this is when my iPad was transitioning screens or just woke via keyboard keys being pressed (i.e. when the processor was clearly in use and obviously not idle).
    3) Since using it, sometimes my ipad will not allow me to input text via either on screen keyboard or bluetooth keyboard. When this has occurred, simply shutting off the keyboard for 15 seconds before turning it back on has usually fixed the problem.

    I have not used it with my MBP yet, but it seems silly to do as such since it is a portable device with an attached keyboard. Therefore, I can only tell potential snags for iPad users. I can say that I did successfully and easily also use it with my iPhone 4S for a few minutes just to make sure I could.

    Overall, I do not regret the purchase. I've only had it for a week, but I've gotten a lot of use out of it.

    Though certainly not a desktop keyboard substitute, it's as goo as any laptop keyboard around. Great touch too!

    Great keyboard with awesome feeling buttons

    • Written by from Fresno

    I use this keyboard along with my 15 MacBook Pro and I love this keyboard. It is really light and this and it feels great to type with. If I had one complaint, it would be that I would really like to have a 10 key numeric keypad. Overall great product.

    Number Pad & USB Ports

    • Written by from Perrysville

    I love not having to worry about how far away my keyboard is from my iMac, but I really hate not having the number pad and the USB ports. It'd be really awesome if you were able to connect a Flash Drive to the wireless keyboard and somehow it communicated through bluetooth technology. Maybe someday. For now, I miss some things and like others.

    Picked up this keyboard half off at bestbuy open box. So happy. This thing works great! Use it with my iPhone 4 and it works perfectly. Use it when I hook up my macbook pro to my TV. Best keyboard ever. Its light and compact. I bring it with me every where. I love this thing. Good looking too. I hate that it uses up batteries though.

    Excellent Keyboard

    • Written by from Austin

    One star short as there is no 10-key pad. My MacBook has a 10-key pad enabled by the [function] key, however, this is not the case with the wireless keyboard. Nevertheless, a great keyboard.

    Great keyboard!

    • Written by from Trooper

    QUALITY- I'm genuinely shocked at the number of bad reviews for this. I'm on my second one now after wearing the first one out and when this one wears out, I'll probably get another one to replace. I'm at my computer 8-12 hours a day and can't even begin to guess at how many keystrokes per day go through this thing.

    DESIGN- The design is pure Apple and it's great. Minimalist and blends perfectly with the Macbook, trackpad, and display. Solid feel and the tactile response from the keys is nearly perfect for a chiclet keyboard. My only gripe is that the white keys are dirt magnets! If you are going back and forth between typing and working on things (electronics usually in my case) be prepared to clean the keys often! I use screen wipes and do it when I'm changing the batteries.

    BATTERY- Where I replace the trackpad batteries every couple of weeks, I can go 3-4 months with this keyboard before swapping out for a fresh pair. I don't travel with it and don't turn it off, just let it go to sleep on its own. I'm using Duracell rechargeable batteries (if it makes a difference). Can't say what others are using, but after reading so many battery corrosion issues, I had to do some Internet research. It's amazing that someone would drop $70 on a keyboard and then put cheap batteries in it!

    SETUP- Drop. Dead. Simple. Seriously, if you can't follow the 3 steps in the quick start guide and get this thing working then stop what you're doing and return any technology you have.

    Great Keyboard!

    • Written by from Forest Hills

    Really like this keyboard. Looks great with my MacBook and iPad. I like the chicklet design and key travel. The only thing I wish it had was backlighting for use in a dark room (but I understand that this would be a big battery drain). Lack of backlighting is why I gave it four stars, otherwise it would have been a five star review.

    Nice keyboard all in all. Only thought that the keyboard was lighted like the MacBook keyboard. I suppose it being a battery operated preclude the ability to have it light as well.
