    Pretty Good! Needs a Numeric Keypad.

    • Written by from Weidman

    As the title states, I like this keyboard. It's very comfortable, light, thin, and elegant. I do wish there was a Numeric Keypad although. Great design! I think that it is a little too expensive, but I wouldn't mind paying $50. I did purchase it though and I am glad I did. I no longer need to plug a receiver into my PowerBook G4. Great Product Apple!

    Works fine

    • Written by from Kaysville

    I've been using this keyboard for about a week, with absolutely no problems. It wakes my sleeping laptop (no exceptions to that yet), the response rate of keystroke to screen display is the same as my laptop's keyboard, and I love its look and feel, and the lack of a cable. I'm only using my laptop as a CPU now, except, of course, when I travel. It connects easily, and does not lose the connection, until I turn it off. Working is a lot more comfortable, with this new configuration.

    I can't speak to battery life at this point. After about a week of consistent (though not continuous) use, the batter still show a 100% charge. So far, I really like it, and can strongly recommend it to others.

    Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from MCKINNEY

    I was given the wireless keyboard as a gift. I LOVE IT! We have always been a PC family having family working for a PC company, but I ventured off to the Mac world. I will never return to the PC world! I am loving every Apple Product I have ever purchased or received.

    The keyboard is very smooth and easy to type on. It makes me want to type just to type. The thing I wish Apple should have added is the back light. It would have been very convenient to use.

    Adivce: Get the wireless keyboard.

    Works great on PC. Slim,Sleek,and Stylish

    • Written by from Glen Oaks

    Been using this keyboard for about 3 days already and its working great. PC recognized the keyboard right away (using a usb bluetooth adapter). Only downside is that there is no Num pad. Overall its really small and I was so suprised at how slim and small it actually is. Command key works the same was as the windows key does also. Overall i gave it a 4 star for being style, wireless bluetooth, Easy typing. minus 1 star for no num pad.

    Numeric keypad please!

    • Written by from Dundrum

    I agree with DB from Atlanta. This keyboard needs a numeric keypad like the wired version! I have both, but I use the wired version just for the numeric keypad.

    Excellent Keyboard- expensive batteries

    • Written by from East Bethany

    I absolutely love the design. The keys are responsive enough that it doesn't aggravate my tendonitis like old clunkers do.
    I switched to the wireless because of the mobility around my room- because of the accessibility features on the iMac, I can zoom in on my screen, which means I can sit on my bed ten feet from my computer and still stay on the internet.
    As far as the lack of keypad, I am a fast typer who has always use the keypad- it slowed me down a little. I just invested an hour of my time practicing using the normal number keys and my typing is unaffected. There are also shortcuts for the opposite of backspace (function + delete), page up/down (function up/down arrow) and more, so the keys that are missing are still usable.
    My only problem is the battery life. I get about a week out of it, and I'm not a heavy user on the keyboard. I'm a moderate user, and in talking to other moderate users, I should get at least a month if not more. My mouse gets several months but my new keyboard has already gone through 4 batteries in less than three weeks.

    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.

    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!

    sleek

    • Written by from Torrance

    the keyboard is a great accessory to go with the MBP. i'm very happy that i purchased this with the magic mouse and the 24" monitor. Apple knows it's products, accessories, and its owners. good job, Apple.

    Works well but eats batteries

    • Written by from Purcellville

    I've had the keyboard for ~3 weeks. Had to swap batteries already, and I'm at 67% on the replacements. I'm not sure if I have some sort of BT conflict, but I'll have to look into that possibility. Meanwhile- consider rechargeable batteries if you pick up this keyboard..

    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.

    A wow experience (except for the 3 batteries) !!

    • Written by from Bloomington

    This keyboard is a master piece. A truly engineering marvel. I love using this. I use this at home while working on my macbook pro. The keys are very responsive and it basically allows me to do everything i could do with my macbook keyboard.

    I do not like the fact that it needs 3 batteries....which i think will be a long term drain on my pocket . I know apple is very passionate about going green and stuff and with 3 batteries to maintain this key board, it will be going against that philosophy. I hope apple innovates in this space and comes out with a better rechargeable battery for this keyboard in future.

    Love the keyboard, but tired of being ripped off by Apple upgrades...

    • Written by from Toronto

    Bought the original (3 battery) version of this in April this year; very annoyed to find it's now $20 cheaper and uses one less battery - my version is now more expensive (lithium batteries aren't cheap) and more wasteful to run. It's great that Apple keeps improving its products, but frustrating for customers who invest in (overspend on?) peripherals that outdate so quickly. (Apple's "Mighty" Mouse is another example - can't even buy the wireless version anymore.)

    That said, I don't regret the purchase - it's made my work this year a lot more pleasant. Love the size and shape, the tiny footprint, the look, the quietness of the keys. Adjusted to the flat keys easily, my hands are relatively large for a woman and I don't feel the keyboard is too cramped (though am very used to, and comfortable with, typing on a laptop). Lack of numeric keypad is actually a bonus for me as it frees up desk space and makes mousing more comfortable. I agree with other people's complaints about having to use multi-key combos for various functions - this can be a pain (remembering them, if nothing else), but not insurmountable. I do miss having instant page up, page down keys, etc. It would be handy if Apple provided a quick shortcuts guide along with their keyboards...

    Portability is fantastic. I work as an editor so need my desk space uncluttered and easily clearable to fit large pages on - lack of wires is essential, and the ability to just stick this keyboard anywhere - shelf, windowsill, stack of books, lap (though it's a little small for this to be ideal)- and still type is terrific. Or I can pop it in a drawer if I don't need it. Battery life so far has been great, though I'm careful to manually switch it off if I leave the desk for more than a few mins - allegedly it powers down by itself but there's no way to check this for sure, as it instantly "powers on" the second you type (how do you know it hasn't been running the whole time?). I'm still using the three lithium batteries it came with, and they're low but still working almost 7 months later.

    Cons
    - did initially have some Bluetooth connectivity issues where the keyboard would drop out, or certain keys (but not others) would randomly stop working, but I suspect this was software related. I've downloaded all updates as they've come along and things seem to have been running smoothly the last couple of months.
    - the white keys do get dirty, unless you're totally pristine in your computer habits and wash your hands before using it every time! But they can also be cleaned up fairly easily.
    - this tends to be a problem with most keyboards, but long fingernails are definitely a hindrance with this one (keep 'em short or go elsewhere!).

    Overall, a great decision for me. It loses a star due to the minor glitches I've had with it but mostly to me feeling somewhat ripped off by the Apple machine. Mac users like to believe the hype, on the whole, and good faith has to go both ways...

    Great keyboard

    • Written by from Aurora

    Great keyboard, but really needs to have a back-light feature like the notebook keyboards. Bluetooth occasionally gets confused and the keyboard locks out.
