Excerpt: This worked well until it started typing 50 or so of a character, and the iPad keyboard popped up for about 2 sec, and then it resumed working. Apple thought the iPad was at fault, but it was not. They said the only option was to buy another keyboard and throw out the old one, since it was over a year old and out of warranty. So I bought another. Let's hope it keeps working.
Excerpt: I can say a lot aout this keyboard. Apple has lived up to its expectations with this keyboard. So where to start? Price wise, it's pretty expensive for what you get. Seriously $69 just for a keyboard? Typically, I would expect something like this to be around $49-$59 at the max. But then again, it lives up to it's sexy, aluminum body that's pretty thin. Asthetics wise, it's like Apple. Minimalistic, slim, lightweight, and easy to use.
Excerpt: For the full story of what happened to my laptop display and why I chose to not fix it just yet and use it as a desktop computer, see <a href="http://www.viewpoints.com/Dell-IN1910N-Flat-Panel-Monitor-review-235b5">Dell IN1910N Flat Panel Monitor</a>. Yet, it goes to reason, that once I decided on that route and chose a monitor, I now needed some type of keyboard/mouse.
"Size & Wireless great - Missing Features very annoying."
3 February 2010
Pros: Keys are easy to use, wireless great for moving out of reach of my 1 year old when I need to get up from my workstation. Smaller size is nice.
Cons: Missing Number pad, REALLY missing the "home"&"end" keys. Painful to scroll thru a url link or word doc. "Caps lock" works but light does not always illuminate. Mac promptly replaced product but new one has same problem. Burns through batteries.
Summary: I have the full (wired) Extended Keyboard at home and am using the Wireless keyboard here at work. First of all, the keys on all of these new keyboards feel amazing. It's quite a jump from an older apple keyboard and particularly from a standard PC keyboard, but once you get used to it, older keyboards feel like those old manual typewriters, plus the design is just incredible.
Glad I kept my old full-sized Apple wireless keyboard

Summary: This keyboard is fine, but seems too-clever-by-half. Why no number pad? Or, back-delete key? Or, page up/page down, end, etc. keys? As someone else pointed out: it is great if you're sitting on a a plane or bus with a laptop; but for serious office work, it is inadequate. I bought a full-sized wireless Apple keyboard about 4 years ago and still use it (like, right now). Works fine, is not a battery-hog, and is full function.
