    Better Than I Thought

    • Written by from Port Isabel

    I've used the wired keyboard with the keypad for a few years already, and thought I would miss the number keys. Recently, I put together my new home office and wanted to eliminate wires and clutter. This seemed good enough, but I bought it somewhat reluctantly.

    It took a few hours of typing to get used to it, but that's probably because I kept telling myself that the keyboard should be bigger (it's the exact same size as the built-in keyboards in Apple's laptops, in case you are wondering). Once I grew accustomed to the feel of it, I was typing away with no problems.

    The only barrier is the price, which definitely isn't targeted at the budget consumer.

    Those who request USB ports should know that it would only draw more power, decreasing battery life. Aside from that, how would data from a USB stick be transferred? Also, keep in mind that by using this device, you are freeing up a USB port on your computer. In the end, you are only missing out on one, low-powered port anyway.

    Nice!!

    • Written by from Uberlandia

    So I just bought the BookArc to put my MacBook Pro 13" on it. Now I can work with my notebook closed and I got a lot more space on my table. The wireless keyboard comes very handy for that, 'cus solved my space problem too and saved my an USB port. :)

    Good fit.

    • Written by from Palatine

    It looks small and dainty because it is. But it still feels comfortable to me to type on. Although when I move it around, I feel like I am going to break it. I received it in Oct and I have not had to change the batteries yet.

    Very nice upgrade to the old Mac BlueTooth I had been usingh.

    • Written by from Puyallup

    It's very pleasant with nice key response. Very compact and the price was good for a wireless blue-tooth device. I thought about the Logitech but it's very expensive and I've heard their support is not very good.

    Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from MCKINNEY

    I was given the wireless keyboard as a gift. I LOVE IT! We have always been a PC family having family working for a PC company, but I ventured off to the Mac world. I will never return to the PC world! I am loving every Apple Product I have ever purchased or received.

    The keyboard is very smooth and easy to type on. It makes me want to type just to type. The thing I wish Apple should have added is the back light. It would have been very convenient to use.

    Adivce: Get the wireless keyboard.

    Numeric keypad please!

    • Written by from Dundrum

    I agree with DB from Atlanta. This keyboard needs a numeric keypad like the wired version! I have both, but I use the wired version just for the numeric keypad.

    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.

    Jamming caps lock

    • Written by from Ambleside

    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

    • Written by from Lahaina

    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, but could be better

    • Written by from POWELL

    It looks beautiful, and is easy to type on, but it NEEDS the option of a numeric keypad and a USB port. I have a Mac Mini hooked up to my home theater system, and I don't want to have to get down on my hands and knees every time I want to use the USB, and I'd like to be able to type numbers at a more reasonable speed. Other than that, it's great.

    I love this Keyboard

    • Written by from Parker

    Well, the title of the review says it all! This is a good keyboard.
    The only complaint i have is the battery life....hence only 4 stars.
    Also, the lack of a dedicated keypad could be an issue, however I would say for most users its not a deal breaker.

    Great but tiny annoyance.

    • Written by from new hamburg

    This keyboard is great and feels good to type on. There is a tiny flaw, the bottom right corner is lifted of the desk about a quarter mm, and when I hit keys near there it hits the desk, and it can get annoying.

    great unit if you don't need extra function keys.

    • Written by from Lynbrook

    I recently updated to an iMac and have had no issues to date. The bluetooth keyboard and mouse that come as standard work very well and have had no drop out issues. The only problem is that I miss the full keyboard functions that I use with certain programs. If you just need a compact keyboard without all the numeric pad and arrow keys, etc it is definitely for you.

    It's the MacBook keyboard. Learn your shortcuts.

    • Written by from Toronto

    I find that most reviews on this product are incorrect; based on the customer's lack of knowledge when it comes to Apple shortcuts. One thing I learned switching to Mac is that everything is at my fingertips if I just learn the tricks and make them a habit. Although I DO wish there was a wireless version with numeric pad (like my old iMac wireless keyboard from 2 years ago which has one), I've learned that most of my iMac keys are unnecessary because I've found ways around them on my MacBook - ways around which don't take up more time or effort - and now I don't even use the full keyboard (except for the numeric pad). Apple shortcuts should become second nature, like activating signals in a car -- and what Apple has done is streamlined their keyboards so that they're all the same, instead of desktops having a completely different setup than laptops. Basically, everyone who complained about a lack of page up/page down keys or 'delete forward', etc, didn't think to try the FN key; and complaining about wanting more buttons to increase productivity is hypocritical if you haven't figured out the shortcuts by now. THAT is what will make your productivity fast as lightning. The tinier keyboard taught me how to work faster.

    Small & Magical

    • Written by from Broomfield

    The Bluetooth connection is smooth, no problems.
    The Keyboard takes up a tiny foot print, no delete key.
    The only problem I have is the ergonomics of it can be a little bit of a pain and no numbers pad. I would buy this if just doing normal computer stuff for work or play, but I wouldn't buy it if I had to do some serious work with any design program, etc.

    Don't know how, but it's the best

    • Written by from Rockville

    Apple has done it again. This keyboard (although on the expensive side) has exceeded my expectations for an easy to use and set up keyboard. The keys are awesome and beat the keys on my PC (yes I said PC, this keyboard paired flawlessly with the bluetooth on my computer). I can type so much faster on this than on my PC keyboard and I have no idea why. I'm glad I bought it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was due to the steep price tag.

    pretty good

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    First off... I'm totally new to Mac, just bought a mini on 6-14-13. used Windows since 3.1, so theres not gonna be any puffery or bias here. I bought this KB because I needed summin to handle the functions etc. for mac. Despite some of the reviews,I bought this and its been great. I use my mac for games, (WoW, Diablo 3), graphic development, and design,... all done with my feet up on the desk, the KB on my lap and plenty of obstacles in the way. It hasn't let me down yet.

    Nice add-on for my Macbook Pro.

    • 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.
