    Cool looking, but uncomfortable

    • Written by from Cambridge

    It's nice that the design and top-row function buttons mimic my macbook, and I like the wireless feature. But I don't recommend this for an everyday keyboard. It's totally the opposite of ergonomically friendly, as is the magic trackpad. I have both at my office and both are causing use-related stiffness and pain (9-5, M-F use, with macbook usage outside of those hours/days). I would prefer that my desktop keyboard be more comfortable than my laptop keyboard, but that is not the case. I wish Apple would offer more ergonomically friendly products.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    On start up, my iMAC frequently can not find the apple wireless keyboard that is turned on and has been paired with this computer. After a couple of minutes, the iMAC recognizes the keyboard but cannot pair with it. This can go on for 15 minutes or more. When your computer is password protected, this is a major problem. Changing the batteries in the keyboard doesn't help. Turning the keyboard off and on again doesn't help. Restarting the computer doesn't help. I bought the computer in October and this has been a continuing problem. I hate the wireless keyboard!

    Undersized, unreliable

    • Written by from Berkeley

    The key spacing is about 90% of a standard keyboard --- it makes my hands hurt to use it all day. (I'm a programmer, so I spend a lot of the day typing.) I've also had two of them fail within a year (in both cases, an entire row of keys stopped working). They can't take heavy use.

    standard wireless keyboard

    • Written by from El Cajon

    This small keyboard is HORRIBLE. If you pay over $2200 for a computer you should get an adult sized keyboard! The keys stick and apple sells NO replacements! They missed the boat on this one totally!

    Wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Round Rock

    For the love of Pete, will you give us a wireless keyboard with a numeric keypad? This product is for a desktop and I do not want or need a lap keyboard for my desktop. I need a fully functional wireless keyboard, not a toy.

    This keyboard out of the box was so uneven. Typing long papers is a nightmare. It would rock back and forth with every key typed. I tried bending it to stay even but no luck. Thinking about buying a Logitech its so bad.

    Doesn't work!

    • Written by from Palo Alto

    I just bought this wireless keyboard and it literally does't work. I've tried connecting it with 3 apple computers already and none of them could even detect the keyboard. I have also tried changing the batteries multiple times! I was looking forward to using this nice 70 dollar keyboard but too bad I doesn't work.

    If You Love Headaches, You'll Love This Product!

    • Written by from Seattle

    What The Pho is going on over at Apple?

    How did this silly thing get a green flag for mainstream? I absolutely HATE it! But its nice to look at.

    If you use your computer for anything important, the wireless keyboard and mouse is going to drive you nuts.

    This is how it goes:
    Your working on big project, your on a roll, being productive and BLAM! all of a sudden you can't type any more words! You realize the keyboard just went dead. Now what? You probably don't keep a fresh supply of batteries around the house so you go scrimmaging for batteries and pull em out of whatever you can find them in - the tv remote, your little brothers toys, your aunties dresser drawer. If all those are a no-go, then its off to the store.

    When i'm motivated and on a roll the last thing i want is an interruption, especially by something like this.

    I'm dumbfounded that they didn't include rechargeable something in these things and provide a usb cable, so when the battery goes dead, you simply plug the usb cable in the computer and continue to work while it charges.

    C'mon now Apple, i thought you guys were smarter than this. I even kinda thought you guys were "Green".

    Oh and pairing these over bluetooth and getting the machine to find and "recognize" it is another headache in itself.

    My advice: If you love headaches, you'll love this product, otherwise don't buy it.

    Batteries stuck. Wrists dead

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I wish this product was as good as I expect of Apple. The angle is a huge pain (literally) because my wrists are flexing just to type.
    And the batteries got stuck! I had to try to pry it out, but the final battery was impossible. I put some new batteries in as I could and the top row of keys stopped responding completely. When I lose connection I have to restart my Mac.

    I seriously can't believe this is an Apple product, and that I paid so much for this.

    Bluetooth Keyboard

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    When I first got this keyboard, I had a hard time without the numbers on the side as well as the top.

    I got past that and learned to love it.

    Now it has dies.

    I would not recommend.

    It looks good but...

    • Written by from Birmingham

    It has a fantastic presence on the desktop. Very minimal and sleek.

    However, it lacks the basics like a number pad. And the Home/End/Insert/etc keys. It's terrible for functionality in daily use. I actually spent the money to buy this keyboard because I thought it looked good. I have since switched back the keyboard that came with my computer. It's far better and actually fulfills my daily computer use needs.

    Look great though.

    Mac Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Goodyear

    I hate this keyboard! The keys are too close together. Can you recommend an ergonomic keyboard that I can use with my Mac. Can I use any wireless keyboard? I would like to throw this one in the trash.

    It's cute but annoying

    • Written by from Oakland

    This keyboard disconnects every few minutes despite being inches from my MacBook.
    It's so small that I can't balance it on my lap unless I lock my knees together.

    If this keyboard were full-sized and had a palm rest and could stay connected, it would be great.

    I'm giving it to a friend who just bought an iPad -- hopefully she'll have better luck than I did.

    I'll just go back to my microsoft wireless keyboard. It's a properly sized keyboard and the Mac drivers work just fine for making it emulate Mac special keys.

    Toy keyboard.

    • Written by from sebastian

    I just purchased my new IMAC, and it came with a toy keyboard, um where is the number pad, You know the one you need for use in business, for excel , numbers, daily use, I called apple service on another LION issue, and just asked about the keyboard, and was told, NO this is it for wireless. and He the tech wished they had a real one as well, as he has to type in serial numbers and phone numbers all day, sad when an apple tech thinks its a joke as well. This was built for looks not function, and it is not a real size keyboard , this is a toy.
    gonna have to yaw my HP wireless keyboard so I can use my $1,800 iMac for business, And I see if you google pathetic apple keyboard , everyone has been complaining about this since 2009 so I won't hold my breath on a fix.

    Too small...

    • Written by from FAYETTEVILLE

    It's compact alright, but way too small for normal size hands. No backspace button is really annoying. The volume controls don't work at all. I've tried everything and no luck with that. Would be good for children.

    I though this was an iPad accessory? Barely any support!

    • Written by from Ventura

    I purchased this keyboard based on the assumption it would perform multiple functions. Some fuctions touted by Apple include being able to control brightness, volume and to change tracks in iTunes. None of these features work with the original iPad. Apple generally has very good support and products, however this one comes up short. It has about three out of five stars on the Apple website. Currently the keyboard is only good for using the letter keys and typing only - no other fuctions work. I know that's the main reason you want one, but as you're working and you suddenly decide your music is a little loud, or you want to skip a track, having the ADVERTISED FEATURES work would be nice. Also, so many fuctions are overlooked, its really almost shoddy of Apple. There is no way to scoll on a webpage (despite having arrow keys) or now way to go back or forward through web pages (despite a multitude of buttons available for such functions). This keyboard may work fine with a full-fledged mac, but because it TOUTED AS AN IPAD ACCESSORY by Apple, you would think they would make it actually perform with an iPad, instead of it being useless for anything but typing. Think hard before your purchase this. It FEELS like you suddenly has a full-fledged laptop in front of you with a dedicated keyboard -- unfortunately the Apple Wireless Keyboard does next to nothing to control the ipad. Major disappointment Apple.
