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!

If you use a bleach wipe, it will break. Apparently, it you spray a small amount of cleaner on a paper towel and clean the white keys..... it will also break. The last method worked great for about a year. I love everything about this keyboard, the feel, the look, the size, everything. But, I do not work in a sterile environment and I cannot look at, or use, a keyboard with dirt on it. I would love to give this 5 stars, but I just cannot because it cannot be cleaned without breaking. …

Returned it to the store once and the second broke about a year later. Went back to the store after spending $1500+ on the computer and they said they would not replace it. Now I just use my old Dell keyboard and mouse. Maybe it's just my luck! …

Also, once you have any Apple Wireless Keyboard product page open, you optionally can select a different language from a drop-down menu under the shipping/availability section. …
