    Great product

    • Written by from APO

    The "other" computer makers can learn a thing or two for ease of set up and simplicity when it comes to adding/connecting devices. This keyboard along with the wireless mouse I bought with it installed on my iMac without a hitch. I was up and running within 2-3 minutes without the hassle of putting in a cd, downloading updates, etc like I did with my PC when I wanted to add peripherals to it. The only minor gripe about this keyboard is the lack of a numeric keypad, but to me I could live without it.

    Would Like Slant Control

    • Written by from Crockett

    This is a wonderful little keyboard. Very compact, very light, fits on my lap without hanging off. Easy to type on although I had to get used to the super flat low profile keys. Some reviewers have said there are no navigation keys, but if you hit Command plus Up Arrow, you get Home, and if you hit Command plus Down Arrow you get End. Hitting Control plus the up and down arrow gives you Page Up, Page Down. So if you use the Command, Control keys you have all the extra keys without the extra space. My only complaint is that the keyboard is permanently slanted down, so the back of the keyboard is higher than the front. Anyone who does a lot of typing knows it's more comfortable to type on a flat keyboard, or even one where the front by the space bar is higher than the back, because hands naturally slant downward away from the body. I fix this by putting a coaster under the front of the keyboard to raise it and make it flat.

    purchased for iPad

    • Written by from Columbus

    I purchased this for my iPad. The keyboard paired instantly and works beautifully. I had a bit of trouble pairing with my laptop but realized it was because it was still paired with my iPad which was close by. I turned off my iPad and, voila! Instant pairing with the laptop. My only problem with this awesome little keyboard is that I'm not sure how to turn it off/on. Otherwise, it is really a great, compact, little keyboard that is super easy to use.

    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 fast Key Board

    • Written by from Alameda

    I've had my keyboard for a few months. I was using a windows keyboard with my Macbook Pro. I bought it mainly to save space because my desk is very small. It took about a month to get used to the smaller keyboard. I had to get used to my fingers finger positioning closer together. I am now used to my keyboard and my typing speed has gotten much faster since the keys are flat and my fingers are closer together. I prefer my Apple Wireless keyboard to the external windows keyboard. The batter life is good and it's very easy to connect to my Mac. A good investment.

    Great Keyboard, but...

    • Written by from SAINT PAUL

    So this keyboard is great except for the one thing that I knew about when buying it but didn't think I would miss....the number pad.

    Pros: Great battery life (I've read other reviews on here that say their battery has only made it two weeks?? Mine's gone two months and I'm still at 84%. Just turn the keyboard off when you're not using it.) Lightweight & easy to move. Quick connection.

    Cons: I still haven't adjusted to the keyboards on the new Macs, I liked my 1st gen MacBook Pro. No number pad - again, which I knew when buying it.

    Overall: Great keyboard if you know that you will never miss the number pad.

    iPad Compatibility is Lame

    • Written by from Blackwood

    I'm typing this on an iPad right now. The keyboard itself and pairing process was seamless like with all Apple products. Having been said, there are, as previously stated, no shortcuts for really, anything useful, such as:

    --Activate Home Screen
    --Highlight URL bar in Safari
    --Navigation of Email Messages in Mail

    Some things that do work:
    --F1-2 Control Brightness
    --F7 Goes Back one Track in iPod
    --F8 Plays/Pauses Track in iPod
    --F9 Skips Ahead one Track in iPod
    --F10 Mutes Volume
    --F11-12 Adjusts Volume Level
    --Eject brings up the on screen keyboard (useless)

    Command X C and V still Cut, Copy and Paste.
    Command+[Left/Right] traverses to beginning/end of line.
    Option+[Left/Right] traverses by word.
    Holding Shift + Arrows allows for text selection.

    Great product. iPad software needs to better handle its actions

    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.

    Does the job

    • Written by from Waco

    Really, it is a wireless keyboard. I do not see it as "spectacular" or anything. Sure, it looks nice and goes great with a mac desk setup. It is a bit pricey but that is the price you pay for congruency.

    • 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.

    More versatile than it seems

    • Written by from Westfield

    It took me a while to warm up to this keyboard. Like many other reviewers, I at first missed the numeric keypad. Contrary to what many have said, there is a forward delete, but it's not obvious: you have to press the fn key with the delete key. Once I got used to it, I found it very natural. The keys are responsive. I also have the Magic Mouse and I turn both it and the keyboard off when I'm not using the computer. My battery life has been fine.

    As far as the numpad, I don't miss it at all. I have an iPhone, and there's a great wireless app for it called (appropriately) NumPad. It not only works flawlessly to replace the missing keypad, but it can also re-create the layout for Sibelius (the music notation program). The app would also work with an iPod Touch.

    I used to be skeptical of any wireless input device, but the keyboard works well. And setup was really easy.

    Great design, fantastic portability, not so durable

    • Written by from Murphy

    I give high regard to Apple's design team and love the design of this keyboard. I have very large hands but find it simple to use this keyboard on a daily basis. I use it in conjunction with my MacBook Pro... I find that when I get used to a particular desktop keyboard then go out on the road, I find I'm less efficient when I have to start typing on my laptop. The nice thing about this is the keyboard is nearly identical to the keyboard of the MBP so I'm golden.

    I originally bought my first ultra-light wireless keyboard a year ago and loved the way it was easy to pack up and take with me on business trips. I used this keyboard every day and have a fairly heavy hand but also get up to about 100wpm when I'm real busy and pound away at this thing. I have to give it credit for taking the punishment but after a year of every day use, it finally gave in. My wife doesn't care for the keyboard so when we got her new iMac 27", I took her keyboard and am on my second one. This seems a bit different besides being a 2-battery which the old one was a 3-battery, it seems a little heavier too. I hope I get more than a year out of this one but we'll see.

    Bottom line -
    5-stars for design and portability
    3-stars for durability (first batch)
    Net = 4 stars.

    happy user of this on PC

    • Written by

    It's annoying to read all over that this keyboard "misses numeric keypad". Guess what: that's the reason I bought it in the first place. Regular writing in an armchair is very uncomfortable if it has numeric keypad. Still, you can clearly see before buying that this keyboard doesn't have numeric keys so what's the point whining about it?
    I did have connectivity issues but, somehow surprisingly, I resolved them by removing the bluetooth driver that came with my usb dongle and replacing it with default Windows XP driver. It works like a charm now, despite the fact that at the same time I use another bluetooth dongle for the network.
    The obvious disadvantage is the price. In Poland, where I bought it, it costs significantly more than 69 bucks (US is so cheap and yet you still whine about the price)
    To sum up, I'm not an Apple fanboy, I bought this for PC and I spend on it 10 times the price of my previous keyboard, but I would do this again cause Apple's competition is to shy to dump the numeric keypad and adopt minimalistic design.
