Much like the Magic Mouse which I reviewed previously, the Apple wireless keyboard fashions a simple yet tasteful design with white plastic keys and an aluminium finish. The aluminium gives the keyboard sufficient and strong support for something so slimline, which also compliments the overall appearance of the keyboard and adds to it's lightweight feel.
The keyboard is a more compact size in comparison to standard keyboards which is ideal for free movement and flexibility when it comes to positioning. Again much like the Magic Mouse, it runs on two AA batteries, which ideally should be rechargeable ones as they are more beneficial in the long run and won't cause an inconvenience to you if they happen to run out. The batteries slot down the side of the keyboard which blends in with the back riser area of the keyboard featuring a power button - adding to the simplicity of it's design.
Signal hasn't been an issue for me, however I haven't distanced myself a great deal from my mac as you expect to be somewhat close to the screen, there have been no connectivity problems and no interruptions with the keyboard during use. The batteries generally last about 2-3 weeks with regular use so there isn't any need for excessive charging.
The keyboard admittedly costs a fair amount and there are always cheaper alternatives available. But if money is not an issue, then again I highly recommend this as it does the job and looks really stylish, especially along with the magic mouse.
Summary: a compact keyboard with reliability and style
