Stylish and works with PCs (just about!)

Advantages: Looks great, solid design.
Disadvantages: Wired, USB HUB not fully powered on PC.
Please note that I am using this keyboard with a PC: I have owned this keyboard for about a year now, and it absolutely ticks all the boxes I wanted it to cover - it looks great on any surface, the keys give good traction, it has a very small footprint, and it acts as a USB HUB which is very useful. There are only two, relatively minor point, which detract from a perfect score. The first is that it is still wired - I'm pretty sure this is because it has a USB HUB, which although useful, I would've done without if they could have made the keyboard wireless (which I think would have fitted in much more nicely with its form factor). Then the second negative point is that the USB HUB is not fully powers - for instance it cannot charge an iPhone. Now - with a bit of tweaking in Windows you can force it to operate fully-powered, but it is very fiddly and took me a while to figure it out. Having said all of that, having the numeric keypad was a must for me and therefore it wins out over the similar wireless keyboard that Apple offers. Oh - and I should probably point out that some keys will need remapping when using this with a PC (but no keys that I use particularly, so personally this has not been a negative point for me).
Summary: Needs a bit of tweaking for PC use.
