Apple Wireless Keyboard
Advantages: Good looking,compact, long lasting, power saving, smooth,wireless,bluetooth
Disadvantages: Can't think of any
This is everything i've come to expect from Apple and more, lovely aluminium face with very quiet keys, is lightweight compact and intelligent.
--> Intelligent lol does it make tea or coffee? <--
Sadly no but as i've always been hesitant about wireless consumables due to the amount of time i spend using a computer in an average week the battery's never seem to last that long.
But this keyboard is great and lasts a very long time on just 2 AA batteries thanks to it's "power management system" After x amount of time idle it powers down and then very quickly wakes up with the press of a key!
It did take a bit of time to get used to as i'm used to a full sized keyboard but once you get used to it i think your see no reason to switch back unless you have a need for a full sized keyboard.
--> Quick keys <--
All F (function) keys have functions built in except the F5 and F6 keys, which can be easily assigned to an application of your choice by going to keyboard in system preferences. There is also the option to disable the quick keys and use the F (function) keys as standard if that's easier for you (Then you need to press the fn key and appropriate function key to use the features assigned to the f (function) keys.
--> Battery indicator <--
With a couple of clicks from the menu bar you can easily see your battery level in percentage terms.
--> Changing batteries <--
Just use a coin to open the slot on the left hand side (Near the escape key) replace batteries and cover, then press the button on opposite side (by eject button) to green light comes on to re-pair with the computer or other device
--> On/Off <--
On the right side by the eject button there is a switch you press once to turn on or press and hold to turn off and whilst doing this your see a little green led above the eject key as well as image and text on screen of what your doing.
--> Recommendation <--
I keep a makeup brush near the keyboard to dust it and keep it clean and pass the hoover over it from time to time as this is an investment which should last a very long time if looked after.
