Amazing keyboard, but a few learning curves, definitely not for everybody!
Engineered perfectly. This keyboard looks amazing, feels amazing, but as to any item, it will not be for everyone.
Looks very professional and very minimal, good for looking like your job is professional if this is being used in the workplace.
Small form factor, does not leave much of any footprint on the desk, lightweight and thin, so it can fit under something if you need to make more space on the desk.
The Bluetooth connectivity makes it very versatile, using it from any position in the room, and has a strong connection with no visible delay.
The layout is great, besides the directional arrows being a bit squeezed to compensate for size, the layout feels very standard and your fingers will feel like they are in the right spots.
If you are planning to use this with a windows computer, be aware that if it does not have bluetooth, then you will only be able to use it by plugging it in via lightning cable.
On the topic of Windows, some of the shortcuts that the keyboard uses are a little misplaced due to the main Operating System the keyboard is supposed to be ran on is MacOS
If you are conditioned with standard membrane or even a standard mechanical keyboard, it will be a weird transition into the shorter travel distance offered by the keyboard, but in my opinion, it isn't a bad transition and it isn't too long before you are back to your comfortable stage.
Price is a little weird with this keyboard, it isn't a bad value, but you can find other keyboards with a similar feel for cheaper, but not necessarily the engineering and the sheer quality of the keyboard. In my opinion, the retail price should be brought down to either $89.99
or even $79.99 to create the perfect value.
The short travel distance isn't for everyone, and for keyboards, the typing experience really makes or breaks the customers mind. If you are used to full travel distance keyboards, which are typically anywhere from 2.5 mm - 3.0 mm to bottom out, and want to stay at that travel distance, this keyboard will not feel good at all. I use both a mechanical keyboard and this keyboard for my at home and at work stations, and it's a weird change, but I like both and don't have a preference as to what I need to have.
There isn't an LED or way to tell how charged up the keyboard is, only an on/off switch, and the lightning port. Through MacOS, it's as easy as checking in your bluetooth settings how much battery you have left, but it is just a disclaimer.
I also don't know why Apple chose to make the "power button" with an eject symbol on it, with the lack of CD drives in MacBooks and now the new iMacs, it doesn't make sense as to why they wouldn't just put a power symbol on it, so just a little bit of confusion there.
