Apple Wireless Keyboard review

 

Apple Wireless Keyboard

Easy setup and Bluetooth configuration; attractive design.

Slight lag in keystrokes; requires OS X version 10.2.6 or later; pricey.

Apple's Wireless Keyboard is the perfect choice for anyone with a Bluetooth-enabled Mac. Just make sure you have the right OS first.

Apple Wireless Keyboard

 

The keyboard's dimensions are a trim 5 1/8 by 11 by 1/8 inches (HWD). At the top of the keyboard is a 0.8-inch barrel that arches the keyboard up a tad, serving as a riser as well as housing the batteries. The Bluetooth version of the keyboard is...

Sleek design. Thin profile with a small footprint. Bluetooth connectivity. Keys are soft, fast, and responsive. Excellent software utilities support in OS X

No number pad on the wireless version. No recharging station. Cumbersome one-button mouse. Keyboard is not ergonomic. Will work with Windows, but specialized software is not available

The Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mighty Mouse deliver simplicity and elegance, but at some cost to wrist comfort.

Apple Wireless Keyboard Review

 

It's super thin, incredibly sleek but not suited for daily use.

Apple’s Wireless Keyboard isn’t really best suited for daily use particularly if you use your Mac for writing letters and sorting your accounting, but if you only use it to surf the web and watch videos, you might find the small form factor lucrative...

Review: Apple Aluminum Keyboard

 

A few months back, Apple introduced a new set of iMacs and with them, we got two new keyboards. A tiny, Bluetooth keyboard was available that looked like it was ripped off of a MacBook. Also available was a new wired keyboard, featuring the same flat...

Thin, lightweight, solid construction, special function keys, USB 2.0 capability

Typing takes some getting used to, no height adjustment

Apple's new keyboard is a radical departure from previous incarnations, but is priced reasonably and is a joy to use.

MIGHTY MOUSE

 

It's taken Apple a dog's age to come up with a multi-button mouse, and now that it's finally submitted their product, it's more than twice the price of the competition's roller-mouse. Initially, I didn't rush out to get one of these, but I finally...

Apple Wireless Keyboard - Wireless Input Devices

 

We liked the Microsoft mouse best, thanks to its software, ability to overcome interference, horizontal scrolling, and keyboard integration (applicable for the mouse-keyboard combos that sell together and work with the same base station). The Apple...

Review: Apple Wireless Keyboard (aluminum)

 

In addition to the ultra-thin aluminum keyboard Apple unveiled for the iMac last month, a similarly proportioned Bluetooth wireless version was also introduced. Here's a setup and unpacking tour, paired with a look at its features, an operational...

Had to self-search for applicable software update

With the green light flashing, the keyboard is paired the same as any other standard Bluetooth keyboard. Under Mac OS X, the keyboard shows up as a device under the "Setup Bluetooth Device" assistant (below top), and you are prompted to type in a...

Mighty Mouse

 

A new mouse from Apple?

On the positive side, the mouse performs as smooth as silk. It has the kind of precision that I’ve come to expect from an Apple-branded mouse. This is something that Apple gets better than any other manufacturer. I also absolutely love the scroll...

Expert Review

 

Apple's latest wired keyboard is practical, comfortable and stylish, and the USB ports are hugely convenient. It's only real downside is that its height isn't adjustable.

Design, anodised aluminium enclosure, flat and comfortable keys, two USB 2.0 ports, doesn't collect dust or crumbs

Height can't be adjusted, function keys require use of the fn key
