    Excellent product, poor documentation

    • Written by from Sarasota

    No manual or other instructions received in the box. Downloaded manual from Apple for this product. Manual spoke of THREE batteries; keyboard only contained two. Thought perhaps one was stuck inside battery compartment. Finally checked on Apple store Web site where the specifications mentioned TWO batteries.

    Recommend that Apple include a single sheet that indicates number of batteries and their location, the location of the power switch, and explains the puzzling behavior of the power-on light.

    Apple wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I love my new Mac.(July 2011) That said, I am still learning how to do the things I used to do on my PC now on the MAC. One thing I would like to do is program the function keys. In some of the PREFERENCES you can customize the Fn keys; all of them to #19....the only problem I have now is that with the standard keyboard you only have 12 Fn keys so some of the standard ops in the PREFERENCES section are just not available to me. As with other reviewers i love the ability to type better on this keyboard than on my PC ones...if only the full size apple numeric keyboard came in a wireless version.......I'm thinking ahead now....

    Nice!

    • Written by from Saginaw

    It is very well rounded I like it just I wish I could use a mouse for my iPad to make it more of a desktop I know it takes away from the touch screen but it makes it more hands free and let the user have a greater experience I know the only way to get a mouse on your iPad is to jail brake but I'm not stupid

    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.

    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 ;)

    no number keyboard

    • Written by from Wentzville

    They sent this keyboard out with my 27" imac. It works great. But it has no number keypad. I use my computer at work, I have to have the numbers. They need to make this with a number keypad!!!!! Apple was great, I called and complained and they sent out a wired keyboard, it showed up two days later. Good job apple. I would send out a new keyboard too if someone bought a nearly $2000 computer too. I did use it for a few weeks and it used up the batteries.

    Best Typing Keyboard Out There

    • Written by from Hartford City

    I have loved this thing since day one. Very sleek yet big enough for even my sausage fingers. The only thing holding me back from giving it a full five starts is that it does not have a number pad. This is not a deal breaker for me, I obviously use one, but it might be for people who do number work all day long, but that aside, this is the best wireless keyboard money can but right now.

    Needs some software updates

    • Written by from Boise

    This keyboard works great with the IPad, however I can't wait until apple sends out an software update that allows the full functionality of a keyboard to be taken advantage of. For instance, the "find" (Command-f) function would be great for research, switching some of the "f" keys do be used with basic IPad functions such as Home Screen, Lock, Picture Frame, etc. would also be a nice touch. Regardless, if you plan on using the IPad for a lot of typing this is a must since it is a lot more convenient then the IPad keyboard stand (Which is not usable with an IPad case).

    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.

    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.

    Its okay.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    The keyboard is nice and most importanly is very compact. No questions - I love it. It has one downside: power switch. I mean you can turn it off and on, but the stupid keyboard turning on by itself while I am carrying it my backpack on the way to school, and the most terrible thing it turns Itunes on, so I walk like a boombox (tanks God Ipads are not that loud) till I notice.

    Great, but...

    • Written by from Carlisle

    I am one of those people who insists on having an external keyboard and mouse for my laptop and I have discovered that I prefer the Apple peripherals (Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard). The keys feel great under your fingers and have no flex, just like on the MacBooks. I do wish, though, that Apple would make a wireless keyboard with a numerical pad. Just a small complaint but it is something you get used to over time. Other then that, no complaints.

    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.

    Nice!

    • Written by from Lynchburg

    Sturdy and portable. Weird punctuation problem when I use it with iPad though. Question marks come up as that silly French "C" with a goatee: ç and / or Ç.
    Still, I like it a lot; makes typing for protracted periods on the iPad much easier.

    Best keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Belleville

    I've had scores of other keyboards. But the fact that this one is a full sized keyboard (unlike Logitech, whose design I like for case and keyboard but the keyboard is not very functional for someone who types a great deal) is a plus. The only real down side is that there's no case for the iPad and keyboard. I ended up purchasing the origami case for the keyboard (after carrying it around with me in the original box for YEARS) and a case for my newly upgraded iPad Air (upgraded from an iPad 2).

    I wish Apple would get with the program and design something for both or come up with a new keyboard/case for it's product.
