    Good Piece of Kit

    • Written by from BRIDLINGTON

    Excellent.
    It can even be used with your iPhone 4 to type texts/emails etc. I tend to use it more with my iPhone than the iPad.

    It stands the iPad / iPhone in a perfect position for you to use; defeats the object in having a netbook or (day I say it) a laptop to some extents.

    Only downside (hence 4* instead of 5*) is that the connector feels somewhat 'flimsy' I bet after several months of regular use it will get damaged. The dock could do with a little more support.

    Shame the official iPad case does not work with this dock. I have a zagg skin cover on my iPad so it makes the removal of the iPad from the case even more difficult.

    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.

    complainers are fools

    • Written by from Stamford

    everyone please be advised that so many of the complaints below are invalid. these people do not know how to use mac products and therefore assume the keyboard is incapable of certain features.

    scrolling, pg up/down, delete fwd/back, blah blah blah - learn how to use command/function/control/option keys. all your worries are solved. my macbook pro doesn't have pg up/down, but its still the best laptop on the market

    to the complaints about numeric keyboard - anyone can see from the pictures that it is absent. don't buy the product if it doesn't have the specs you desire. if you do purchase, you can't give poor grade based on features you knew were absent prior to purchase

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Kaysville

    I recently purchased this keyboard as an acccessory for my iPad, and have so far found it to be a very good buy. The keyboard gives me control over my screen brightness, volume, iPod (play, pause, skip, etc.), as well as unlocking the iPad. When pressed, each key has a crisp, precise feeling to it. So far the keyboard angle has proved to be perfect for my wrists while typing long pages of text. My only complaint is that though I can unlock my iPad using the escape key, I cannot lock it, at least as far as I am aware. I also would like to bea ble to access my home screen using the keyboard instead of having to press the home button on my iPad. I know many other reviewers have complained about the lack of a numeric keypad, but I haven't found it to be a huge nusence, nor the fact that the keyboard is slightly narrower than a traditional keyboard that would come with the average pc. I recommend this keyboard to any iPad, Mac, or other compatible device owner in need of a keyboard. It is a great keyboard.

    Good, but expensive

    • Written by from Mequon

    Very good keyboard, the keys are responsive, the bluetooth can reach very far... farther than i expected.... but it is a little on the pricy side. I think a reasonable price for this keyboard should be around $50- $60... 70 is just too much.... it would be nice for the next wireless keyboard to have illuminated keys.... different colored backlit keys would be nice too! over all, good product.

    Great device but needs wireless numeric keypad companion

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I love this device. I have one for my MacBook Air and another one for my iPad and iPhone. Apple needs to develop a companion wireless numeric keypad or another wireless keyboard with numeric keypad. I would definitely buy one. I tried a couple of others and all they did was annoy me to death and I threw them out. Other point: could we have a ergo-dynamic version as well. Great job Apple.

    Good response but just too small

    • Written by from Austin

    I got a wired and wireless keyboard when I got my 27" iMac last December and if this keyboard had a separate 10 key like the wired I'd be using it. However it sits in a drawer waiting for me to infrequently use it with my Playstation. For which it works great. Get Sanyo Eneloop batteries if you get one.

    WHERE IS THE NUMERIC KEYPAD??????

    • Written by from South Bend

    I love that its so small and portable, but it gains nothing by not having a num pad and separate function and system keys. There needs to be a full-sized wireless version 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.

    The Wireless Keyboard is great but . . .

    • Written by

    The wireless keyboard is great. I like its slim design, I like the responsiveness of the keys and I especially like that it's wireless. The only thing I wish it has was a numeric keypad, not having it slows me down. I won't go back to the wired keyboard but I will keep looking for apple to make a wireless keyboard with a numeric keypad.

    Love the Wireless, But I Want It Full Size

    • Written by from Catonsville

    I definitely love how wires are no longer a problem on my desk with the new iMac. The wireless keyboard, trackpad and magic mouse have made this possible and I am enjoying the clean wireless appearance. Sitting in front of the 27 iMac the smaller wireless keyboard does appear a bit out of place.

    As a programmer I find I still prefer a full size keyboard. I love the larger arrow keys, dedicated Home and End keys, numeric keypad and separate backspace and delete keys without having to combine it with a FN key press. Plus my hands are a little on the larger size so I like the wider keyboard.

    I would happily pay for a new version of the wireless keyboard that comes in a full size version. I wouldn't care if it came with USB ports or not. My priorities in this case being wireless and full size.

    So what do you say about making a full size version Steve? I would even give you a few extra dollars to have it engraved like my iPods. I got my credit card ready, so get Jony Ive on it.

    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.

    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.

    Awesome

    • Written by from San Ramon

    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.

    Could have been MUCH useful...

    • Written by from Fontana

    Got this last week, replaces ugly factory wired Apple Keyboard (because of that full-size keyboard) it's making it a little hard to adopt this new almost half-size :) BUT still it isn't bad!

    I wish Apple can come-up with a slightly bigger size wireless keyboard WITH magic trackpad combine. I bet that's lined-up in production as I write this review since trackpad was introduced recently ;)

    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.
