Newest style Apple keyboard emulates aluminum unibody laptops while providing a fully featured set of 19 function keys, media control keys, numeric keypad and forward delete key.
Some computer users do NOT want to go wireless (feeding batteries, lost connections, start-up troubleshooting) and want short, crisp, light keystrokes. Attached wire is about 30" long, plenty for most desktop situations and Apple includes an additional 36" USB plugged white wire extension.
With two side USB ports, this keyboard is a "must try out" item, especially for later model Apple computer owners.
The keyboard is much more enjoyable to use than my previous Apple Pro Keyboard. I chose this keyboard because I need the numeric keypad in my daily work and the wireless model simply doesn't have that option.
There are, however, a couple gotchas for people who are used to the older keyboards. There is now an fn key, but not where it is on the wireless or laptop keyboards. Instead it takes the place of the (rarely if ever used) help key. This is important because, like a laptop keyboard, this keyboard hijacks your function keys by default, requiring you to press fn-function to get your old functions or to get the labelled functions if you have fixed it in the Keyboard Preferences pane. Volume control used to be above the 10-key pad, now those functions are on f10-f12, brightness used to be f14 and f15, now f1 and f2. These wired changes are also different than the default preferences for expose and dashboard, placing them at f3 and f4 respectively.
Once you reconfigure the keyboard to require fn for the labelled functions, it functions mostly like the older model with a more pleasant keying experience.
The Apple extended keyboard is a much better choice than the smaller bluetooth keyboard, despite the wired connection. If you're a Mac user, you owe it to yourself to at least give this one a try.
Pros: Full sized, numeric keypad, two USB ports
Cons: No backlighting, no angle adjustments.
If this keyboard were backlit like my Macbook Pro, it'd be dang near perfect.
I absolutely adore this product, I use it every single day. As a matter of fact, I'm using it right now! (11:09:39, 6 June 2010)
It's sleek design and beautiful craftsmanship give the Apple Wired Aluminum Keyboard a look rivaled by none. I can only pray that this item might have some irreparable problem so that I might experience the joy buying a new one! With nineteen glorious function keys and two USB ports to boot, this Keyboard can perform every task short of cooking your breakfast!
Nice keyboard for the mac, it is missing the keyboard backlight keys like on the laptop keyboard and the usb extension cable is a little week it only works with the keyboard and you can use it with anything else it has a special grove in it. Other then that its a normal keyboard has all the mac keys that you use its very thin and has two extra usb ports on it. The place they are located might make problems for some USB devices like usb keys or some fat usb plugs.
