    It takes some time getting used to it

    • Written by from Arlington

    At first, I really liked this keyboard. It worked well with my iMAC. That is, until I tried speed typing on it. Talk about a disaster! I thought about things to include the "old" keyboard I'd learned on (the one with all the wire coming out of it), and I realized the problem: This keyboard takes some getting used to. In just 2-months, I was speed typing again and much faster than I did on the old keyboard.

    However, I have to be brutal here this is not a keyboard for someone who needs a 10-character numeric keypad (unless you're really gifted and can use the numeric row of this keyboard effectively). So, instead of berating this keyboard, I suggest to all the numeric keypad users, put this aside (you can use it with your iPAD) and purchase an Apple wired keyboard, as it a numeric keypad. And, if you still don't want the keyboard, contact me...I can use a spare!

    Awesome for MacBook(Pro) users

    • Written by from San Ramon

    Echoing previous reviews of 95% the same layout and feel and my MBP.

    The only minus is the white keys with gray letters sometimes have glare from the lights. I know... I could learn to touch type :-)

    I really miss the black keys with white letters and backlighting of the MBP... that would make it *perfect* for me - bar none!

    Perfect

    • Written by from Godfrey

    The keys provide a crisp, responsive typing experience. The form factor is extremely thin and lightweight - perfect for one wanting an external keyboard with limited desk space (my situation). I use mine primarily on a Windows 7-based laptop and love it. I also play PC games using it and have had zero problems.

    To be honest, I'm not sure why this keyboard isn't rated higher than it is - I think it's perfect for someone who enjoys a very streamlined, no-frills keyboard that looks great.

    Great design

    • Written by from Flagstaff

    When I first opened the box I was mystified. How do you turn it on? Where do the batteries go? 8-) (I'm not a great one for reading documentation before I start using something.) As I discovered the 'on' button at one end, and then the battery compartment at the other, I laughed with delight at the cleverness of this design. Ingenious and effective design is why we are willing to pay more for our Mac stuff, of course

    Some have criticized the keyboard for being too small but I got used to it quickly and find it quite comfortable. Guys with big hands might not be as comfortable. I have large hands for a woman and it is fine for me. The small size and bluetooth connection allow me much freedom for placement. I like the touch and the silence. So for me, it's five-star, and I don't give those lightly.

    Now that I have one myself, some of the critical reviews seem nitpicky.

    Awesome for on the go

    • Written by from Summerville

    This is probably your best option for typing on your iPhone/iPod touch or iPad on the go. I use this keyboard every day along with my iPhone (using Evernote) to take notes in class. If you're looking for a desktop replacement however, I would look elsewhere. The function keys are great but it's a bit cramped for my liking. Still, this thing works perfectly and I highly recommend it for every iOS road warrior.

    Apple keyboard and iPhone

    • Written by from Jeffersonville

    Works great and was easy to pair with the iPhone. It comes with batteries installed and ready to go. Took only about five minutes to go through the manual. Now, looking for a carrying case!

    Great on the road and with iPad

    • Written by from Macomb

    Purchased in 2010 to accompany my magic mouse, this has been put through its paces for ver twenty months. Has worked great with both my iPad and 2009 MacBook aluminum model, and has made getting work done while traveling much easier. It's been pretty durable and survived a couple of spills in its time. Only issue is that after loosing the end cap accidentally once, it was hard to find a replacement anywhere other than online auction sites which took over a month.

    Best keyboard ever for iPad 2

    • Written by from Porter

    This keyboard has been great for my iPad 2. I bought the joule iPad stand to go along with it and I must say I use this on a daily basis. Don't waste your time on them other built in keyboards that are attached to the case because they are hard to type on. Not comfortable at all. Those looking for a great keyboard the apple Bluetooth is the way to go.

    I wish I had bought this earlier...

    • Written by from Nepean

    I've been using my new wireless keyboard and I just love it. Now my computer set up is more ergonomic and much more comfortable when I use my MBP. [The desk where I usually work is a a bit too high to use laptop comfortably for extended hours, but now I can use the slide-out keyboard tray.]

    Since the keyboard is the same configuration as the laptop [keys just a different colour], I can type at the same speed.

    The only thing I miss about it is that the keys aren't back-lit like on the laptop,thus it's not as convenient when using in low-light, but, aside from that, I'm extremely satisfied with it.

    Great keyboard!

    Wonderful keyboard! Easily accessible, small, yet easy to use! This is without a doubt the best keyboard you'll ever use. Even though it is a little pricey, as with all Apple products, the price is well worth it.

    This keyboard can handle abuse!

    • Written by from Toronto

    If you do not have experience with this keyboard, as soon as you start typing on it you notice the difference. The keys are soft and easy to push, which makes it very easy to type. The keys are also very quiet, which is a nice plus for those of us that are quick at typing.
    The wireless range is amazing. When I am watching a marathon of shows, I bring my keyboard with me to curl up on the couch. I never had a problem with this keyboard in the 2-3 years I've had it.
    I am pretty clumsy.. I've dropped this keyboard many times and it is tough enough to handle me... even when I dropped drink after drink after drink on it.. Eventually (and many drinks later) when I spilt my last drink on it, even though the whole keyboard was completely covered, the only keys effected were two keys (the question and colon key)... which is absolutely amazing.. since I went threw a few keyboards (other brands, not this one).
    I sincerely recommend this keyboard. My last incident was about a week ago, and although it is unfortunate I am unable to use my question mark and colon (which you can just click in character viewer) that is obviously my well deserved fault. I will be buying this keyboard again as soon as the iPhone 4S hype dies down!!

    The fastest keyboard I've ever typed on, a pleasure to use. I use it almost every day, and it's so sturdy I know it'll last me for years. Hard to believe it's only $69.

    Great Keyboard.

    • Written by from Honeoye Falls

    I got this for my new desk for my birthday. Plugged my MacBook Pro into a 40" 1080p TV, paired this and an Apple Wireless Trackpad, and I love it. The keyboard is great. I was somewhat skeptical if I'd want the wireless keyboard and trackpad since I already have them built-in to my MacBook Pro, but it just lends a whole different experience to using the external monitor. Having the Trackpad off to the side of the keyboard is great because you don't have to avoid the trackpad with your palms. The Wireless Keyboard is theoretically identical to the one built-in to my 15" MacBook Pro. However—I don't know if it's a deeper action of the keys, being able to put it anywhere I want it without affecting the position of the screen, or the pleasant angle that it sits at, but—something just feels good about it. The angle, size, and mobility of it make it a breeze and a blast to use. It just feels incredible to type on it—I actually want to write my next essay, just to type on it.

    WELL-worth the pricey price-tag.

    As far as setup, it just works. One intuitive trip through System Pref. to pair it and you're good-to-go.

    Also has EXCELLENT battery life. I've been using it for a few days and it still reads "Battery Level: 100%".

    I highly recommend this (especially in conjunction with the corresponding trackpad) to anyone who uses any kind of Mac at a workstation—Laptop or not.

    By FAR, the very BEST keyboard I've used in 22 years!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    When I joined the Mac family of products 15 months ago, I thought I had already found the best keyboard that I would ever have the privilege of typing on. These were the soft-touch keyboards on the several higher end ThinkPad's, which I had been using for 11 years before switching to my first iMac. Not so, as I turned out, as this wireless keyboard from Apple is not only fantastic and super comfortable to type on, but, as is the case with most Apple products, it is also gorgeous!

    I suppose that this is where PC users would start calling me an Apple fanboy, but I have come to appreciate that my aluminum keyboard matches the Magic Trackpad perfectly in color, style, dimensions, and ergonomics. I am also blown away by the fact that this keyboard is usable even when I interrupt my Mac from booting when I, for example, am fiddling with my latest dual or triple boot setups well before OS X even has a chance to boot! This is a big deal because this keyboard cannot be plugged in, so it's all wireless all the time, which adds to the aesthetics even more.

    Battery life is top notch. I last replaced my re-chargeable batteries several days ago and I just now checked how much juice is left: 99%. And mind you that I actively use it on a daily basis, 7 days a week, for approximately 5 hours each day.

    There is no better (or better looking) keyboard and I have 22 years worth of experience in typing. The price is more than justified and it'll match the furniture.
