Apple Aluminium Keyboard

Apple Aluminium Keyboard

With the release of the previous generation, aluminium iMacs, Apple released a new keyboard. Having just bought a keyboard before that, I was very hesitant to upgrade to this new slim model, with keys like in the Apple laptops. There is however, a time and place for everything and after just recently upgrading to a MacBook Pro, I thought the time couldn’t be better to get myself a matching aluminium keyboard, instead of the old white one.

What I must instantly credit to this keyboard is the slimness. It’s slim enough to fit inside of my laptop bag making is portable right away. I’ve always been a fan of the keyboards that Apple’s put into the laptops and always found them great to write on. This one is just the same. The speed of which I write has really improved as my fingers don’t need to travel as far for this as they would do on a keyboard with deeper keys.

I do have a complaint though and it is about the bluetooth version. I would really have liked to have a bluetooth keyboard, since I have a laptop computer and it would’ve been even easier to take along with me. What I can’t stand about it is Apple’s decision to remove the numpad on it to slim it down further. I do understand that it could potentially be good for some times, but it is something that I really don’t want to be without. It feels just wrong to purchase another laptop sized keyboard, without the numpad and full extension. No, Apple. Offer two bluetooth versions in that case. I want my numpad!

Otherwise, I’m really digging the keyboard and would overall recommend it to anyone looking for a simple, good-looking keyboard that is really good and fast to write on.

  1. Great review Erik. This is the reason why I bought the keyboard for myself. I wanted my number pad.

    To me I feel like I’m much more productive with a keyboard because I’m looking on the top row for a number because I already know where the numbers are on the keyboard. Just makes sense to me.

  2. Many people prefer to go to those brand name outlets to buy goods in good quality though they will cost much more money than that in stable stores and fakes. It is common that when a brand has become famous many fakes of it will exist in market quickly. As the most worldwide luxurious brand name, Louis Vuitton had and is meeting such a problem all over the world. Some manufacturers of luxurious brand name think that fakes of their brands show they are very popular in public but other brands do not think so. It is reasonable that Louis Mote Hennessy had ever prosecuted Google for it sold fake goods of Louis Vuitton for they thought the fakes would destroy the image of Louis Vuitton Brand. And their honest customers will never like Louis Vuitton Bags for they feel this brand has cheated them when they see a person wearing an ugly fake some day. We can say that the key to the success of commercial area is brand for it is the real thing that increase and create the valuation of those brand name goods. It is not the design and quality can cost so much money but the brand which they have set though more than one century’s efforts. It is true that the setting of brand bases on the good quality and design. For example, a Louis Vuitton wallet will be made in more than one hundred procedures before being displayed in market.
