    The apple wireless keyboard (bluetooth) is amazing and works so well, I really love it. It's my second purchase of this same keyboard. My older one looks exactly the same (it's what I'm typing on right now) and is probably 8 years old, pretty much when they first came out. It still works flawlessly, despite the tweaks and model changes. As I said the older one and the new one look the same and both perform flawlessly.

    The review is for the new one and that keyboard I use with my iPad 3 (I think, it's got the retina display) for writing. It links up without any problems and I have also linked it with my iphone 4s in a pinch if I need to get some text down in a hurry.

    The keys on these keyboards are nearly divine - I have used them for years, and the response in composing (I am a writer), their size, the clicking is 'just right.' Never had any better keyboard. This apple wireless keyboard takes two AA batteries. (my older one takes 3 AA, lasts forever) Should prove to be an excellent input device for whatever your needs may be. For me, using it with the ipad for writing is a joy - I set the ipad up on my lap in the case I have for it so it stays, put the keyboard in front of it and away I go. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    I like very much that they didn't change the functioning of this keyboard over the years - why fix something if it isn't broken? - and they didn't. Hope this one will last me into the next decade - no reason to believe it won't as my old one is still going strong.

    EXCELLENT product.

    O, if I could have 'anything' I suppose Apple could make this exact one with a backlit keyboard - for all the late night writing I do in a nearly dark room. That would be it. But if I need that, I can get my laptop.

    First of all, let me say that this is a review of the keyboard, only. B&H was GREAT as always!This keyboard is being used with a 2012 Mac Mini, 27" Apple Thunderbolt display, and Apple Magic Mouse. The keyboard looks good and the Bluetooth implementation and operation has been flawless. So that's great. Now for the bad: the keyboard costs $[$] but feels like it should cost $20 (or even less). The typing feel is very cheap and 'plastic-y' and the sound when typing is also very cheap and annoying sounding. The keyboard is also light, which is great if you want to take this traveling but as a desktop keyboard its too light and moves easily around, even when you're typing. Compared to the Magic Mouse, which feels substantial and high quality, this just feels like a cheap knockoff. I mean, the look is right, from across the room, but it just doesn't have the quality that you would normally expect from Apple. Very disappointing.

              Comments about Apple Wireless Keyboard:

              Using with an older Macbook Pro attached to a (wired) monitor and Apple mouse. I agree with the other reviewer. It feels like a cheap knock off and sounds like tin. Much to light weight, batteries need much more frequent replacement that one would expect and now one of the keys broke for no apparent reason. This is a secondary computer that does not get a lot of use.

                The feel and look are great; the build and keys are premium. But if you're trying to use this with an ipad, you'll be somewhat disappointed by the lack of shortcuts and incomplete integration. Otherwise, typing feels great and it's obviously a quality product.

                  I love Apple products, they are built well, designed with ease of use in mind and they simply work. So if you are mauling over a half price keyboard just to save few bucks after shelling your hard earned money on an laptop- don't. This is an awesome purchase. It works well, saves a ton of space on your desk and is built like a brick outhouse.
                  Just buy one already.

                                Had it up and running with my Macbook Pro in seconds...that's exactly what I like about Apple!. The keyboard is well-made, has just the right tilt and the keys have a nice response to them. I don't mind using my Macbook's keyboard for brief stuff or while on the road...but for longer duration typing am really enjoying this keyboard. It's also quite compact...it literally matches the keyboard size of the Macbook...with no wasted space.
