Apple New Wired Keyboard
Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great fee Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great feel and very large keys so you don't make many mistakes.
THE ONE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH IT IS the two usb ports will not support an ipod. I have the video Ipod and I get a warning that the USB power is too low to power the attached device. I bought this key board to clear away clutter on my desk and hopefully eliminate a few cords. Unfortunately its not true and I was disappointed. I am very much an apple fan but the low USB ports were a not as advertised on the website. …

Took a little while to get the feel of it, but now it's second-nature. Once problem...Boot Camp. This little baby uses Function keys for audio up and down and brightness, and Vista really didn't like it. Sadly, I'm going to have to keep using my old keyboard until they update BootCamp to work with this new keyboard. That's why I'm only giving three stars. Otherwise, it'd be a full FIVE, baby!

I use this keyboard every day at work and I beat the heck out of it, banging the keys as I type. It really does hold up well and i I use this keyboard every day at work and I beat the heck out of it, banging the keys as I type. It really does hold up well and it types very smoothly. I've used the Apple wireless keyboard and I actually prefer this one. It just feels more sturdy to me. And, it has 2 USB ports. I strongly recommend this keyboard! …

A nice overpriced keyboard
The keyboard is nice, but comparing to my mechanical keyboard around the same price point there's a number of things I just don't The keyboard is nice, but comparing to my mechanical keyboard around the same price point there's a number of things I just don't get, especially considering it's Apple who pride themselves on smart design and ease of use.
#1: No cable management option, the power cable just sticks out of the middle at the top with no where to direct it or tuck it for a cleaner look
#2: USB 2.0. They include two USB ports seemingly for convenience of file transfers and charging, but can't even make them usb 3.0? They're also hidden under the lip of the keyboard so you have to lift it up to use them.
#3: Lack of adjustability- The keyboard cannot be raised or lowered to a desired angle, and it tends to slide around on my desk quite a bit.
#4: Cleaning. The white keys are nice but attract dirt and grime easily, there seems to be no easy method of cleaning it as I've had one fail due to simply wiping it gently with a damp cloth. With my mechanical keyboard I could remove the keys and put them in the dishwasher if I wanted to.
It's a good basic keyboard but if it was made by any other company would probably sell for $20. …

Great keyboard but should be wireless
This is a great keyboard and I'm looking to get a new mac. However, I would have thought by now that this keyboard would be wirele This is a great keyboard and I'm looking to get a new mac. However, I would have thought by now that this keyboard would be wireless. I'm the type of person who uses that number keypad all the time instead of the top one above the letter keys. Especially since I'm an accountant, I use it even more than most. I wish they would finally make this as a wireless one. …
