    Great--but BATTERY HUNGRY!!!($)

    • Written by from St. Catharines

    This is a beautiful mouse--sleek, responsive...and wireless. Problem: It goes through batteries every couple of weeks. I am now trying to find something as comfortable, but unfortunately, w/ a wire. Even buying in bulk, I'll pay for a new mouse in no time w/ the money I save in not buying batteries. An environmental disaster...expensive...and frustrating when working on an important project. Never thought I'd give an Apple product a bad review. I hope I never have to again.

    Keyboard and mouse are horrible

    • Written by from Tempe

    The key board and mouse that came with my iMac are absolutely the worst keyboard and mouse I have ever used. They need to go back to the drawing board with these two items.

    Looks Ten, Types 3

    • Written by from Bloomington

    So this keyboard has a great look and feels like a laptop. This is not a good choice for doing a lot of typing as the keys are too close together and don't give enough feedback - either tactile or auditory - when you type. Useless for data entry. I thought Apple wanted to appeal to the business and scientific community. The separate aftermarket calculator has gotten only two stars.
    I made my own keyboard stand to put this keyboard in the proper angle and position to type with a wrist rest. Still not as good as some of the after market keyboards. Bluetooth can be buggy at times and depend on battery charge, USB less of a problem. If it came with an iMac, save it to use with your iPad, and buy an aftermarket wired keyboard if you do a lot of typing. I wouldn't buy it as a replacement keyboard.
    This is a case of form being subservient to function.

    Eats Batteries

    • Written by from Little Elm

    I love this keyboard, but I find that I am having to replace the batteries every 2 weeks. I'm looking for better alternatives (like rechargeable) but have not found it yet. Will keep using it, but not happy with the power drain.

    Perfect companion keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Along with Pages, this keyboard really expands the capabilities of the iPad. It saves you from having to find a computer when you want to type up a long e-mail or document. Keyboard is very light, comfortable, and it automatically powers down when not in use. Battery life has not been an issue. Note: I have not tried any of the third party keyboards that are integrated into the iPad case. Regardless, if I lost this keyboard tomorrow, I'd turn right around and buy a new one without a second thought.

    Battery Drainer

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Every 2 days I've gotta use new batteries cause this keyboard drains the life out of them. Got rechargeable ones that go in one day. It also has a hard time connecting to blue tooth. The trackpad works better than this. Apple products just don't like me.

    Simple, Thin, well-built

    • Written by from Rochester

    I recently purchased one of these for desktop-like uses for my Macbook. It functions very well. I can be 7 feet away from my charging macbook and still get good performance out of this keyboard. I have nothing to complain about. Battery consumption is relatively low based on how long I've had it. It was easy to adapt to since the only difference is that it isn't on my mac. One final thing is that it fits excellently on my keyboard tray allowing me to also put my magic mouse on the tray. Overall, its a very nice keyboard. I highly recommend it.

    Best Keyboard I Have EVER Used!!

    • Written by from Tompkinsville

    I bought this keyboard to use with my iPad and it works fantastic.It is also very light and sleek. I use it every day to type up my notes for class. I don't know how the batteries are because I have only had it about a week but I already love it.

    Poor layout, some keys gone missing

    • Written by from pasadena

    This keyboard has only one Control key and that key is narrow and not in the lower-left corner. This makes editing in Emacs cumbersome.

    There are no page up/down keys. To scroll a text window by one page, one must hold the "fn" key and tap the up or down arrow key. This cannot be done with one hand, which makes it an accessibility issue.

    Two issues

    • Written by from San Jose

    Apple Wireless Keyboard has a very nice, refined, minimalistic design. It looks great in front of your Mac. It's also practical and easy to type.

    But there are two problems.

    Problem 1: It runs out of batteries quickly. I use this keyboard everyday at work. Before I leave, I turn it off to save batteries. But two AA batteries only last 1-2 months.

    Problem 2: It sometimes doesn't find the connection to my computer. When that happens, I turn it off and back on and move it around on my desk but I never know what I'm doing that makes or doesn't make it work.

    iPower!

    • Written by from Leeds

    One of the most swish keyboards I have ever used. Works very well with the MacBook, and it even worked on my iPod Touch (which came as a nice surprise!) - one keyboard, a truckload of devices. Someone I know has an iPad 2 and has been recommended to buy one of these.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from St. Catharines

    I just recieved my Keyboard in the mail today and I LOVE it! It's so helpful on the iPad because the iPad touch screen keyboard gets very annoying after using it a lot. I'm actually typing this review with the keyboard itself. Let's just say this is my favourite keyboard I have ever used and I highly recommend it!

    Takes a pounding

    • Written by from Tucson

    I type upwards of 100wpm, and I type a lot, every day. I've never babied this keyboard, and it still responds as though it's new. There's no other keyboard that responds the way this one does.

    Keyboard always disconnects

    • Written by from Durham

    This keyboard for use with an iPad 2 is TERRIBLE! It will allow me to type in one note and then it it will not type anymore. I really hope I received a defective model because this is ridiculous. If I want to use the keyboard, I have to go through and "re-pair" the keyboard all ovr, for maybe one note/message again before it peters out. Awful job Apple, AWFUL! I wish I could give it no stars.

    Bluetooth keyboard

    • Written by from Horsham

    Well made product for the 'average' user although I have had no problems yet I am sure that with heavy use it will be more likely to fail in certain crutial ways.
    Otherwise its a great product.

    Cons: I wish it would turn on and off quicker because like most people, I dont like to wait.

    keyboard

    • Written by from Oakland

    The button that holds the batteries for the keyboard in place easily works it's way loose and there does not seem to be a replacement part, instead it looks as if I have to buy an entirely new keyboard.

    Plus, does not come with a travel case for protection

    Good keyboard, One flaw

    • Written by from San antonio

    I bought this keyboard and have had it for about a week or so, and really fell in love with it. One major flaw, and I understand its not with all of them, but the keyboard is not centered right. When I hit the left "shift" key, the keyboard seems to bounce on the left side. The rubbers of the keyboard dont seem to be aligned correctly. In other words the keyboard rocks side to side when typing. Very annoying. Because i have lost the receipt to this keyboard I have put scotch tape under one of the rubbers to even it out.
