Not a standard keyboard

mjbates, CNET
14 November 2012
  • Summary: It's a typical Apple product, nice build quality, but none standard for no good reason. I should not have to relearn how to touch type on a basic qwerty.
  • Pros: Good build quality
  • Cons: Basic keyboard is not the standard layout, if I have to look at a keyboard to find a key it is automatically a failure., No extra keys, which are so common on other keyboards that they are almost standard., Not ergonomic.

Meant for market niche; not for productivity.

Ricardo M, Apple Store
30 October 2012
  • Summary: It's certainly sleek, durable, and minimalistic but none of these help if you use your iMac for productivity/office intentions. As a senior in college, I use my iMac every day. Word docs, Excel reports, etc. - Unless you turn off your keyboard (and Magic Mouse) every time you're away, you'll go through 4 AA batteries every month. - That saying "You don't realize what you had until it's gone" certainly applies to the home, directional and numeric key pad.

fair keyboard when you can get it to sync

bepilot, CNET
19 January 2012
  • Summary: There are much better keyboards out there for the money that are non Apple brand.
  • Pros: small foot print -seems well made mechanically
  • Cons: Very difficult to sync occasionally. It loses its sync at various times after the computer is in Sleep mode and then you have difficulty getting it to sync again. Hard to get the keyboard into discover mode.

One Problem

Robert Duke, MacMall
28 December 2010
  • Conclusion: This keyboard is excellent within the parameters MAC usage, however, if you are using "bootcamp" to run Windows on your MAC, forget it! "Option" key will not allow you to bring up Windows or work within the Windows partition on your MAC.

it's cute but i don't get it...

Charles A M, Apple Store
8 November 2009
  • Summary: i buy the 27" iMac and get this cheeseball keyboard that comes with it. don't get me wrong, i'm sure it would be great if you were looking to take it with you on a plane or maybe if you don't have a desk. it's just too small. no number pad, page up, page down....you can't even use it as a weapon if needed. just my thoughts. i would take a corded full length keyboard over this any day.

Flawed Design

Gregory M, Apple Store
27 October 2009
  • Summary: Looks great, works great, but if you get a battery stuck in the very narrow compartment, it can't be opened to remove. I brought it into the store and they said that the battery expanded and could not be removed. They recommend changing the batteries WEEKLY. That's crazy.

Replacement for badly designed previous model

Graeme R, Apple
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: If anyone's looking at getting this keyboard because they're previous (3 battery) one has died - try inserting a little roll of tinfoil in before the batteries. This is a common fix for supposedly 'dead' bluetooth keyboards (badly designed by Apple). Unfortunately mine has complete died while changing the batteries, which isn't great. £60 down the toilet, for something I looked after well. How can changing a set of batteries kill a piece of 'high-end' electronics?
