    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.

    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.

    Good but needs num keypad

    • Written by from Pentool

    It's a good keyboard. The problem is that it doesn't have a numeric keypad. Apple clearly designed this keyboard for those who only surf the net, write emails, and looking at photos. End of story.

    They didn't seem to take into consideration that there are many design and 3D programs that take effective use of the num keypad for either navigation and/or extra functionality of such programs. Sure ok, you can get the wired version, but would be nice to offer a wireless version of the keyboard with the numeric keypad as well.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
