Summary: The poor design of this keyboard does not allow you to remove the batteries. If you don't change your batteries frequently and they get swollen your keyboard will be useless and you will not be able to remove the batteries. I have been through a few of these keyboards and while it may look pretty do yourself a keyboard and the the full wired keyboard for $25 less and a numeric keypad! PS no batteries to change or get stuck either!
Summary: This is a well built keyboard. Probably the most beautiful around, keys are easy to type and the integration with OSX is great with the special function buttons. Unfortunately, they stop working after 2 years. I am on my second wireless keyboard from Apple, and they both simply stopped pairing with the computer. Tried everything I could find in the internet to no avail. Of course, Apple has no real customer service, so to the garbage they went.
Summary: I've been working with Mac's for many years and it is very common for us to replace the peripherals, particularly the mouse and keyboard with another product, usually Microsoft. They are relatively inexpensive, well made and ugly. Oh well, two out of three aint bad.
Summary: It worked for about 1 year. Now half of the keys don't work. No other choice though, I have to buy this same keyboard as a replacement. In my opinion, they should cost about $25-$35. Not worth $70.
Summary: This keyboard costs about $70.00 and my experience has been that it's built poorly and not to last. The first apple keyboard I bought lasted about 3 months before the first key popped off and I had to take it into apple for a return. The second one I haven't taken in yet--though I intend too, because the power button has gotten stuck permanently in an 'ON' position and the 'O' key is barely holding on to the keyboard.
Summary: Three months after purchase one button just popped off, no reason at all. And I couldn't pop it back in. Batteries don't last as long as I would like. I would like to see a micro USB connector on it and a USB to Micro USB cord shipped with it. Keyboard is a little too condensed, I find myself hitting wrongs keys all the time on this Keyboard. Kind of wishing I went for the extended one, fit my hands better.
No extended version - productivity killer for pros

Summary: If you never use the extended keys for serious work, this keyboard is light, convenient and well constructed. But, for pros who need the extended key set, the lack of an extended version of the wireless keyboard is a serious gap and a productivity killer. I find myself sighing and going back to my wired extended keyboard because the missing keys on the wireless version make it sloooow for work.
Used to like like the keyboard until... The batteries leaked!

Summary: I enjoyed the keyboard until it stopped working. I figured it was time to change the batteries: and it was! Except that the batteries leaked and one is stuck at the bottom. It seems to have corroded the aluminum case and I cannot get it out. I went to the Apple store hoping to get advice or help but to no avail: this is covered. I understand the limitations ofmthe product but I am upset nonetheless.
