Apple Wireless Keyboard

The very first Apple Wireless Keyboard was released in 2003 but the redesigned model was introduced in 2007. It is a white compact QWERTY keyboard with an anodized aluminum enclosure. It measures 7.3 x 12.8 x 1.4 inches and weighs approximately 2 pounds. The Apple Wireless Keyboard is powered by 4 AA batteries and features an on/off switch at the right side.

Features

The Apple Wireless Keyboard features low-profile keys for shorter travel and lower response time. It does away with the standard numeric keypad but still features one-touch controls for common shortcuts such as Exposé and Dashboard. It also has multimedia function keys for volume and brightness control as well as playback controls that include play/pause, rewind, forward, and eject. The keyboard has a low power feature that allows it to automatically lower its power consumption when the keyboard is not being used. It automatically turns on as soon as its user starts typing. It also features an on/off switch to conserve power when its users will be away from the keyboard for long periods. This power management feature allows its batteries to last up to 9 months. The Apple Wireless Keyboard also has an accidental press prevention for its Caps Lock key which only activates when the key is pressed down for a moment longer than all the other keys.

Connectivity

The Apple Wireless Keyboard features no USB ports or USB connectors but it allows connectivity through Bluetooth wireless technology. It has a maximum operating distance of 33 feet.

Compatibility

The Apple Wireless Keyboard was specifically designed for use with Macs that are equipped with Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later. However, is can also be used with Windows PCs equipped with a Bluetooth receiver and a compatible Bluetooth stack. Some of the Mac-specific keys can be enabled through a generic HID driver and other keys can be remapped.
