Apple Wireless Keyboard review

£56 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Apple

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

The Apple Wireless Keyboard is slim, sleek and very light, but it won't be to everyone's taste.

The Apple Wireless Keyboard is slim, sleek and very light, but it won't be to everyone's taste.

The Apple Wireless Keyboard's slim, compact design is good for use at home – for example, we use ours with a Apple Mac mini that's plugged into a flat-screen TV and used as a media centre in the living room.

The Apple Wireless Keyboard also has a set of function keys that enable you to control Apple iTunes and other features such as Dashboard and Exposé on your Mac. Its Bluetooth wireless technology enables you to use it with other devices that have Bluetooth – such as the Apple iPad – so it'll be handy for quickly tapping out quick notes and emails on an iPad at home.

  • Overall: We give this item 6 of 10 overall

The Apple Wireless Keyboard is less suited for use in an office environment – many people simply find it too compact to type on rapidly. It doesn't have a proper numeric keypad either, so it's not much use if your work involves a lot of number crunching. But as an adjunct to your living room media centre Mac, it's a stylish winner.
