    Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Maple Ridge

    Love this keyboard. I think the only thing that would make it better would be to have the numeric keypad added...

    Oh, how there's a balance…

    • Written by from Kayenta

    The balance of the brand, design and just how awesome this keyboard is keeps me from chucking it out the window. It's great, it's low profile, and it's made by Apple; what more could I want? Backlighting and a wireless version of the keyboard with numerical keypad, in one. That's why I gave it a rating of four stars, it's great, but it could be better.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Maryville

    I recently bought The Swedish version of Apple's wireless keyboard to use as a tool in learning to read, write, and speak the language. The keyboard was simple to setup with my MacBook Pro, and works very well. It's lightweight, small, and the battery life is quite satisfactory. I love its compact size as it easy to travel with, and I'll confess I like the Swedish keyboard layout--I guess it works well my eccentric self.

    I only wish that Apple offered a wired variant for my desktop.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Desert Hot Springs

    I love this keyboard. I don't really like "traditional" keyboards. I don't like a lot of wires all over the desk. I use it along with the Magic Mouse mainly because I use an external monitor with my MacBook Pro. All in all it is a great keyboard. It's not for everyone, but It works for me.

    Pros: Sleek, Sexy, Aluminum, Bluetooth, Easy to pair, It Just Works.

    Cons: No 10 Key (The reason the fifth star is not selected.)

    I would suggest you try it out first at a local Authorized Apple Retailer or Apple Store.

    no numeric keypad

    • Written by from Menomonee Falls

    this keyboard works great except for one thing: it has no keypad. i have a macbook pro that doesn't have a keypad, so when looking for a keyboard to hook up to i want something that has it. why do i have to get the wired keyboard to get the pad? it just doesn't make sense.

    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, but I need the Page Up and Page Down / Numeric Keys

    • Written by from Pottstown

    would give this 5 stars if it had the additional keys with it. Why cut the right side off? I don't understand what they were thinking. Please give me back my numbers, Home, End, and most importantly, my Pg Up and Pg Down keys!!

    Love the footprint

    • Written by from SEMINOLE

    Yes, it's sleek and smooth. The compact design pairs well with my Mini. Not only does it look good but it has a nice feel to the keys. I use a new iMac at work and have become accustomed to the numeric keypad, so I would like to see the next generation of wireless have it.

    Wireless Keyboard battery life and keyboard length are issues to consider

    • Written by from Corral de Tierra

    I've owned my wireless keyboard about two years, changed batteries about 10 times, and never had an issue with pairing. It is always immediate. I like the low profle and tactile response. There are two flaws that for me are a problem. First, there is no numeric keypad. Second, the keyboard is too short. I like a longer keyboard because it has more mass and is more stable, and I can use it on my lap or an uneven surface. I also think the keyboard consumes too much power - batteries don't last nearly as long as I think they should.

    Sore-neck no more!!

    • Written by from Lake bluff

    All in all a very solid product ~ my only reason for not giving a full 5 star rating is because of the slight feeling i get from time to time that it is on the smaller side even though it is distinctly the same full size chicklet keyboard from my MBPro.

    I combined this with the wireless Trackpad so my MBPro could sit up on a stand on my desk for times when i'm stationary and don't want to be hunched over the laptop for hours on end. The two of these products make it so much more comfortable to work at my desk.

    A great addition to any busted keyboards or simply to stop reinacting The Hunchback of Notre Dame every time you write for more than 45 mins.


    Cheers

    Not quite perfect.

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    Nice battery life, nice size, nice to type on. I use one at my office to do most of my keyboarding on.

    Easy to pair up with macs and the ipad.

    But you can't modify Apple's own keyboard to give it more iOS functionality, like remapping buttons to serve as a home button, etc., when third party cases can? Really?

    If the zagg keyboard was a little bit bigger (and not quite so netbook-ey) I'd almost prefer that.

    Brilliant.

    • Written by from Dewsbury

    Okay, I'll keep this short and simple.

    Beautifully packaged, easy to set up. Very responsive and fast, battery life is amazing, feels good to type on. Best keyboard I've ever had!

    Only one thing... it needs a back light like the MacBook Pro keyboards!

    Other than that, perfect.

    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.

    Great Keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Mount Wolf

    This is a must have, it you are planning on using your iPad for a true document editor. Its is crazy responsive and truly expands the i pad's capabilities closer towards being a very good net book. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and the battery lasts a very long time.

    My only beef is that, when you turn this thing off, it still wakes itself up and reconnects to your iPad at the most inconvenient times! I wish that there was a hard On/Off switch instead of the button one. I guess I could take out the battery, but thats a hassle!

    Just got this keyboard and so far

    I am very much missing the number pad that is usual on the right side of keyboards and the "caps lock" button works but often does not illuminate. Mac quickly sent me a replacement and the replacement has the same problem.

    The board/buttons are easy to use and I am enjoying the wireless feature. It's great for putting it out of reach of my one year old.

    Awesome keyboard. Looks great and the wireless works without flaw so far. I just wish it came in the full size with the numeric keypad. Then it would be perfect!

    Great feel & key response but its too limited without the extended keyboard

    • Written by from Cleveland

    As usual, this is a quality made product from Apple and if this wireless keyboard was an extended keyboard I'd have given it 5 stars. If this was the size & layout of the USB extended keyboard that came with my iMac, I would love it. Bluetooth works great & no wires is a major plus. The feel and response of the keys is great too.

    Not having the extended keyboard, and the modification of the actions of the remaining keys isn't as efficient for me. I also have the wireless mouse but its the large wireless trackpad that I use the most along with a lot of key controls. I look for the fastest way to navigate through my computer, screens, apps & I use many keyboard actions in place of a mouse or trackpad control.

    Another major concern for me is that I also have an iPhone & iPad, along with other iMacs. This has me bouncing around between many keyboards. BTW, I LOVE my iPad & find myself using it far more often, and my iMac far less. I'll be installing Yosemite soon & suspect that the synchronization of my iMac, with my already synchronized iPhone & iPad will bring me back to my iMac more often.

    Nice Product BUT...

    • Written by from Whittier

    it's just a tad to small for big hands, and if your use to the "old" white mac keyboard then it will take getting use to because of the space difference, but after a while you get use to it, the numerical keypad isn't missed that much, but I love that since it is wireless, the cord isn't missed at all! THIS IS PRETTY COOL KEYBOARD!
