Quick and quiet
I am qwerty typist over the past 35 years I've found keyboards clunky, noisy and slow. This is quick, slim, quiet and fits very well into a busy work space. Plus I have arthritis in both hands so a flat keyboard is ideal physiotherapy. Finally a typist ideal keyboard...

A joy to type on
I received this keyboard with my late 2012 iMac. I went for this version over the wireless version as I like to have a numeric keypad.
Everything about this keyboard is just perfect. The keys are a good size and its a really quiet keyboard to type on. The keyboard is really well made out of aluminium (which is a nice change from the usual plastic). The angle of the keyboard I find perfect and I can type for a long time without getting any wrist pain at all.
A nice touch as well is the two USB 2 ports on each end of the keyboard. These are ideal for connecting a USB thumb drive or for connecting your iPhone or iPad. It is possible to charge the iPhone too.
I am totally satisfied with this keyboard and cannot fault it at all.

Fantastic Apple Keyboard
A great keyboard and value for money. Very much a softer touch, laptop style action. It goes without saying that the keyboard is sleek and stylish. We prefer this keyboard to the wireless version the iMac came with as it has the additional numeric pad to the right. We had grown fed up with replacing the batteries in the wireless keyboard!

Not such a useful product
I purchased this keyboard in addition to the smaller Apple Mac one already purchased with the computer. However, the diagram on the website of the size of the left hand shift key is not how it actually is on the keyboard, ie it is a small key rather than a long key and if you are a touch typist, as I am, your left hand little finger automatically goes to the key below the A for the shift key and doesn't find it as this key is two wavy lines as the shift key is a half size, not as illustrated. This product had, therefore, to be returned as it was exactly the same layout as the smaller keyboard, which is no good to me.

Its Like Tickling For Typing As Opposed To Banging Hard!
Absolutely brilliantly designed keyboard. I bought one for my Mac Mini last year and loved this keyboard so much I decided to buy one for my Macbook as well, so that I can use it as an additional. However a few things need to be said here with regards to this keyboard. Firstly it has the same layout as my 2008 UK model Macbook which gives me total access to everything I need with only one downside - the eject button doesn't appear to work with anything other than a CD or DVD inserted in the Macbook or Mac Mini if your model has a superdrive fitted.
Compared to the cheap PC keyboard I was using with my Mac Mini, the Apple wired keyboard is simply amazing, very well made and very well thought out - I only have to tickle the keys to get the words on the screen; no more punching hard and no more rattling sounds from poorly cushioned deep set keys. I believe my touch typing speed has also increased whilst hand fatigue is kept at a minimum too.
Another aspect I love is that all the keys are low profile and have a slight grainy texture to them making them super easy for your fingers to grip onto rather than slide off.
For once however an Apple product that is so easy to use, good on the eye and reasonably priced, especially when I was shocked to discover that there are two built in 2.0 USB slots on the underside of the glossy product. I can connect my camera and printer very easily from either side, but the slots will not power up an external memory hard drive - more's the pity.
If Apple bring out a new wired keyboard with lit keys as they have done with their Macbook Pro, I'll be first in line to buy. This keyboard is a must if you need quick word processing done without drama - the one-touch function keys are bonuses though if you own a Mac computer.
One aspect that seems to be missing from most of these product reviews is the fact that you'll also receive an extension USB slot cable to give you extra stretch from the keyboard to the computer.

Smooth, sexy and super!
If any of you are apple fans or have apple products from now or in the past you will of come to understand their product quality, reliability and credibility. This keyboard is no exception with its keys that allow you to glide to one to the next with each stroke or impression.
Now "I've never used or had an apple product before" you say? Or "sorry I use windows". Well those are no excuses here on why you shouldn't buy one of these seen as it is in the same price bracket as any other reasonable keyboard and it is fully compatible with any windows PC.
So made up your mind yet? No? Bite the bullet and get one!

Does what it say'z on the box....
ordered the keyboard from John Lewis late Friday evening...email notification shortly afterwards to say that the item would be ready for Store collection after 2pm Sunday....same price as Apple store, however you cant beat that for delivery service, and cost me no extra as we were in the area to collect....only briefly used the Keyboard, but seems to function as well as my wireless one....wanted this one for ease of use having the side Number Pad...wouldn't say the product was particularly cheap, however it is a Apple product at the end of the day...
