    Keyboard Falls Short of the Mark

    • Written by from Chester

    This keyboard is great to the touch but falls way short for utility. Apple needs to design a wireless keyboard that incorporates a 10 key (calculator capability great addition) and a trackpad. With all of the gesture capabilities built in to Lion it's a waste not to have a trackpad. The keyboard can be deeper than the current providing room for wrist rest with trackpad in the middle probably.

    Not happy

    • Written by from Mona Vale

    Got this tiny keyboard with my new iMac 27" - so I have this huge screen and this tiny keyboard which is useless. Love the wireless connection and the ergonomics but that's about it. The size and shape and location of keys is almost identical to my old wired keyboard - except that the entire RHS of the keyboard is missing!! This gives lots of inefficiencies, not only the missing delete key (to delete forward), but also the numeric keypad, large functional arrow keys, and also the home, end, page up and page down keys. I really need these keys!!

    Added to that they have placed the fn key to the far left of the keyboard where the control key is normally positioned (which has been moved right one space to accommodate the moved fn key) so I am forever pressing the fn key and wondering why my commands aren't working.

    I for one am totally unimpressed with this keyboard. It's minimilistic gone mad and has created so many inefficiencies. So I now have the options of either just plugging in my old dirty keyboard, buying a new USB connected full keyboard or buying a trackpad plus 'magic' keypad....crazy.

    Rediculous

    • Written by from Tulsa

    Received one of these keyboards with my 47 inch iMac yesterday. Jonathan Ive needs to get serious about designing a keyboard for people who actually use keyboards.

    I'll be looking around the net for a substitute.

    Works Well

    • Written by from Mechanicsburg

    I have the very first iteration of this keyboard, if you don't spill on it or abuse it, it will last. Mine is several years old and works like new, the only complaint is the older ones don't have a Launchpad button, so since I upgraded my server to Lion I need to buy a new one.

    Excellent Keyboard

    • Written by from Lewisville

    I've had mine for a year now. Uses batteries very efficiently, and connects very easily. It can be used very easily with iPhone or iPad. It required some getting used to do to its slightly smaller size, but I now prefer this keyboard rather than other larger keyboards.

    The best keyboard in the world

    • Written by from Jimenez

    This keyboard is almost universal, it works with any mac, iphone, ipod touch and ipad. Maybe is expensive, but it's a very useful tool.

    Won't last long

    • Written by from Ventura

    This is a great keyboard... for awhile. I've heard countless stories of them failing. Mine was brand new a year ago and now it doesn't work. This is one of the products that Apple has simply not mastered yet. Very Disappointed.

    I love this keyboard

    • Written by from Winston-salem

    I do lots of typing, and I've found this keyboard to be very easy on my hands. I like the touch of the keys and it's great not having a keyboard take up a lot of space. As a left-hander, having the numbers on the right hand side was something I never used, so I don't miss it.

    Excellent Responsive Product

    • Written by from Catasauqua

    Many have complained about the bluetooth connectivity, but having used the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse for a little over three months, I can't be more happy. I was expecting the size and design of the keyboard to be uncomfortable, but I have no complaints. I can touch-type for hours without tiring and don't miss my large, clunky, and "ergonomic" PC keyboard. The responsiveness of the keys is excellent and there is no lag between keyboard and computer. The keys have a wonderful feel to them, soft with a slight grippiness, and the tactile clicking sensation feels more controlled than a typical keyboard. The whole experience of typing has certain je ne sais quoi. I have 70% battery life three months later (from the original packaged batteries) and that is with at least five hours of daily use.

    Great feel but lacking IPad integration

    • Written by from Andover

    I bought this for IPad. It's got a great feel and would work great for extended typing. But it's lacking in the ability to do simple keyboard navigation. For example, there's no way to tab to the next field on a web page or the next field in any app for that matter. There's no way to jump to a different app (like Alt-tab on windows) and no way to jump to a differ. You're forced to use a mix of screen gestures and typing - not ideal for an expert user!

    I'm not a Mac user (yet), so some of this may be "normal" for Mac - not sure.

    I'd buy the magic trackpad to help (easier than working on a vertical Ipad screen), but that isn't supported.

    Small size good, missing keys bad

    • Written by from Bend

    I like Apple’s Wireless keyboard. It’s very compact and easy to use. Never had problems with Bluetooth connectivity or battery life.

    So why did I replace it with a Logitech wireless keyboard? Because what made the keyboard so compact is also what made it very inconvenient for me; the lack of a numeric keypad and other important keys like “Home”, “End”, “Delete”, and page keys.

    If you work with numbers and financial documents like I do, I recommend not getting this keyboard. Go with a full-size keyboard with all the useful keys.

    On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I give the Apple Wireless keyboard only 2 stars. There are better keyboards out there for less money.

    The Space Saver

    • Written by from Anchorage

    Compared to my wired Razer Lycosa, the build quality, size, and overall aesthetics of the Apple Wireless Keyboard make it welcome on my desk any time! It paired with my custom built PC without a hitch and runs like a charm. It will take me awhile to get used to the slightly smaller key layout, though; It's approximately 3* smaller than the Lycosa.
    Overall, my desk looks cleaner and my fingers are happier! This is definitely a good buy!

    Wish it had an on/off switch

    • Written by from Morgan

    I love my Apple Keyboard, but there is a fatal mistake. I cannot put it in my bag, because the buttons get pushed which turns on the keyboard, which runs out the batteries, and sometimes turns iTunes which is really embarrassing in the middle of class, or a work meeting. I have a case, but it does not protect the keys from being pushed.

    Going back to wired

    • Written by from NEWPORT

    Very frustrated with the wireless keyboard and the separate numeric keyboard. Goes through batteries quickly, loses connection often and hard to get paired again. I also have the track pad and love it. For some reason, it has no problems, but constantly having problems with the keyboards. Also, it takes 10-15 seconds after striking the first key before the computer recognizes the keyboard. I like the feel and idea of bluetooth, but not worth the constant frustration.

    AWESOME!!!

    • Written by from bassett

    I got one of these with my iMac and I love it, I have never had a computer with wireless anything so the wireless was amazing to me, the keyboard looks really good as well and compared to most keyboards the sound of hitting keys is very low. The batteries last a long time as well, I got my iMac in June and just changed the batteries last month and i use the iMac every day for at least 2-3 hours.

    Cool looking, but uncomfortable

    • Written by from Cambridge

    It's nice that the design and top-row function buttons mimic my macbook, and I like the wireless feature. But I don't recommend this for an everyday keyboard. It's totally the opposite of ergonomically friendly, as is the magic trackpad. I have both at my office and both are causing use-related stiffness and pain (9-5, M-F use, with macbook usage outside of those hours/days). I would prefer that my desktop keyboard be more comfortable than my laptop keyboard, but that is not the case. I wish Apple would offer more ergonomically friendly products.

    Love it but wish...

    • Written by from Gloucester

    I love my keyboard and have had it for a year. One tip though...don't put non-rechargable batteries in there after you have accidentally charged them. The chemicals inside the battery will ooze inside it hold. Other than that it is a lot of fun. Overtime there are some connection problems but it always connects after a couple of off and ons, but remember I have had this for a while. ANother tip...don't use the keyboard where there is no light or (if with an iMac) you will have to turn up the brightness and point it at the keyboard. (If with a iPad 2) Then forget typing. Turn on the light or you will have a painful time trying to guess where the keys are (unless you know it by heart). Apple needs to come out with a backlit keyboard. Lol. BUY THIS PRODUCT....I LOVE IT AND YOU WILL. WORKS WITH ANYTHING. 4stars haha 7 if possible! :)
