    Gorgeous Keyboard

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I use one of these with my Apple Mac Mini and another one with my iPad 2.

    It is just sleek, cool, a beautiful design and works well.

    No trouble pairing and holds the connection. The batteries last a long time too.

    Highly recommended............

    Has its place

    • Written by from Memphis

    This is a good little keyboard, but I am not sure it belongs on the mac. I have to say I was less then excited about this item mainly because of the lack of 10 key on it. I hated having to replace the batteries all the time since our computer receives heavy use. But I do love to use it when I am typing on my iPad 2 or my iPad mini. All in all its a good little keyboard but when I order my next Mac, I will opt for a wired version of both the mouse and the keyboard.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from Woodland Hills

    Apple has a real problem with their product quality. This is the second keyboard I've bought in the past two years. In fairness the first lasted for almost a year. The second didn't make three months before it would not connect. I'll have to try a third party one.

    very good, same as macbook 13" keyboard

    • Written by from Thunder Bay

    Great keyboard. Performs just like my macbook 13" keyboard from four years ago. I was mostly interested in the compatibility with my macbook and iPhone. Very good with the mac, and a few surprises with the iPhone. Typing works, volume, pause/play, brighteness up/down, command a, command c and command v all work as you would expect, eject brings up the soft keyboard in an app with text, caps lock. Certainly way more functions than I expected to work, but alas no app switching shortcut or anything like the home button mapped to a key or anything. I am super pleased. The idea of using it with the iphone is that i can now take minutes in a meeting without hiding behind a laptop. Also, its much lighter and easier to have a phone and keyboard than a whole computer, that said the phone is not as capable, but it'll do text just fine. thanks for the great product.

    This keyboard can handle abuse!

    • Written by from Toronto

    If you do not have experience with this keyboard, as soon as you start typing on it you notice the difference. The keys are soft and easy to push, which makes it very easy to type. The keys are also very quiet, which is a nice plus for those of us that are quick at typing.
    The wireless range is amazing. When I am watching a marathon of shows, I bring my keyboard with me to curl up on the couch. I never had a problem with this keyboard in the 2-3 years I've had it.
    I am pretty clumsy.. I've dropped this keyboard many times and it is tough enough to handle me... even when I dropped drink after drink after drink on it.. Eventually (and many drinks later) when I spilt my last drink on it, even though the whole keyboard was completely covered, the only keys effected were two keys (the question and colon key)... which is absolutely amazing.. since I went threw a few keyboards (other brands, not this one).
    I sincerely recommend this keyboard. My last incident was about a week ago, and although it is unfortunate I am unable to use my question mark and colon (which you can just click in character viewer) that is obviously my well deserved fault. I will be buying this keyboard again as soon as the iPhone 4S hype dies down!!

    Great keyboard

    • Written by from havertown

    This keyboard is a great choice for a wireless work environment. It lasts about 2 months on a charge and I never turn it off. It also works great with my iPhone and iPad. You can do command + x/c/v to cut copy and paste on the iPad. You can also change the brightness and volume using it. This keyboard is great for those who want to stay mobile. I have had it for 6 months without a single problem. The aluminum also gives it a sturdy feel.

    Suggest picking up a skin for protection.

    Buying a new one since the last one was done in by a simple non-sticky spill. Strongly suggest investing in an inexpensive cover to prolong it's life.

    Great Keybord, Needs Numbers

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    I got this for my macbook pro and it works beautifully. It has the exact same dimensions as EVERY apple keyboard from the last few years, so as a touch typer it is easy to switch back and forth. It is super durable and super light. my only complaint is that it doesn't have a keypad. This is inconvenient not only because of the functionality of the keypad, but because it is narrower and that makes it harder to type with it on your lap. over all I am extremely satisfied with this product.

    Very nice keyboard!

    • Written by from Houston

    I'm new to Mac, so with my purchase of a Mac Mini and a MacBook Air, I decided to complete my collection and spring for the Magic Mouse and the Wireless Keyboard.

    First off, out of the box, it's ready to go, batteries and all. It's extremely simple to connect to your computer, and you don't have to worry about turning it on and off all the time to save the battery (there's a built-in 'sleep' mode).

    The only downside is that Apple doesn't offer a wireless keyboard with a numeric pad ... something that some people like, but others need. While my wife won't be doing her college math homework on one, I love everything else about this keyboard.

    Recommendation: Unless you absolutely have to have a numeric pad, this is the keyboard that goes perfectly with your Mac!

    A must have!

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    The wireless keyboard is a must have! I purchased the docking station keyboard initially. I didn't like it and never used it. I exchanged that keyboard for the wireless keyboard. It is awesome. It is very easy to set up. It's so easy to use I find myself using it even when I don't really need to. Do yourself a favor and get one.

    I am currently using the keyboard with my iPad. I haven't used it with my Macbook yet but I can.

    not the best Apple keyboard: steep and flimsy keys, short battery life

    • Written by from Northfield

    took 3 stars off for 3 cons, gave 2 stars for 2 pros

    Cons:

    1. Taller than the Macbook keyboard (flat) and the Apple wired keyboard (slightly tilted). Noticeably harder to type and easier to develop sore wrists after minutes of use (compared to Apple's other keyboards).

    2. Battery died after 6 weeks of use (average 4 hours per day of typing). Previous logitech K250 lasted 3 months.

    3. Flimsy keys compared to Apple's wired keyboard. When I put my finger on the a key and move it sideways, the keys could hit the aluminum frame on all four sides. This did not happen on my unibody macbook's keyboard or Apple's 2010 wired keyboard.

    Pros:
    1. Updated key texture compared to Apple's 2008 keyboards. Now there's more friction on the keys!

    2. Easy connectivity on Mac and Ubuntu! Automatic and fast connection after each restart.


    Other Thoughts:

    I bought this keyboard for the iPad. As a computer science student, I have to constantly switch between Apple's wired, wireless, Macbook and dell's desktop keyboards.
    The other three keyboards all work perfectly for me, but the angles of the keys are just too steep on the wireless keyboard that my wrists starts hurting after a short time of use. This is even more bothersome than the many typos I make because my fingers keep hitting the aluminum frame in between the keys. Now I use it with a magazine tucked beneath to keep the keys flat.
    Also the keys give a high click instead of the usual firm click like Apple's other products. Overall, this is the first Apple product I bought that I felt was too much style over too little substance.

    Get the wired keyboard instead, for the right feel.

    WHERE IS THE NUMERIC KEYPAD??????

    • Written by from South Bend

    I love that its so small and portable, but it gains nothing by not having a num pad and separate function and system keys. There needs to be a full-sized wireless version too!

    Good, but I really want full-size

    • Written by from Reston

    The keyboard feel is great. I used to get cramps in my fingers / hand at work, but no longer since I bought this for use in the office.
    HOWEVER, I'd really like a full-size, just like the wired version, but wireless.
    Come on, Apple, it can't be that hard. Sometimes I get the impression you torture your customers just for the fun of it!

    On/off flawed...drains my iPad

    • Written by from Rochester

    When actually using it is works really well. It's light and responsive. It's clear why they didn't include the number pad,so that doesn't really bother me at all. The big beef I have with it is that you cannot tell by looking at it that it is on or off and it is easy to accidental turn on if it's in your backpack. This then turns on the iPad and doesn't allow it to sleep- effectively draining the iPad as collateral damage. A simple moving switch (eg, iPod) would fix this.

    Nice keyboard but limited

    • Written by from Redmond

    I like the tactile response from the keys. Areas to improve:

    * numeric keypad
    * home/end/page up/page down keys
    * backlit
    * a wrist pad for better ergonomics

    I'm not planning to use this for all-day use so I'll manage without these things, but Apple should consider!

    Wonderful iPad Addition

    • Written by from Burbank

    Just wanted to take a moment to say how pleased I am with the way the keyboard works with my iPad. I'm using it right now with the iPad lying in front of it on the table (I have a Griffin easel on order) and it is a pleasure.

    First, it was easy to set up under the Bluetooth settings. Just turn it on, the iPad recognizes it, click to connect, and voilà. Second, when the keyboard is connected the virtual keyboards don't pop up, giving more room on the screen. Third, when you want to use the virtual keyboard (maybe to input in a different language) all you need to do is hold down the keyboard's on/off switch for 5 seconds and it appears.

    Not all the function keys work, but those that do are very helpful: screen brightness, iPod controls, volume. And the esc key is even handy when the iPad spell check incorrectly wants to change a word. Here, the esc key acts the same as touching the x on the pop-up spelling box. The arrow keys make navigating around a document easy.

    Lastly, I think the integrated keypad and iPad dock is too limited. You can only use the vertical orientation and it won't fit as neatly in a computer bag. The Apple Wireless Keyboard gives the most flexibility. I've even used it on my lap while sitting up with the iPad lying on the bed next to me. The iPad screen is so easy to see from any angle, that it doesn't need to be precisely oriented like a typical laptop lid.

    Wireless Keyboard

    I love this keyboard. I use it with both my Mac and IPad with retina display. With its built-in bluetooth technology, this keyboard is easy to pair with both of my Apple devices.
