Pros:
-Aesthetically pleasing
-Integrated USB cable
-Two additional USB ports
-Driverless (at least under 10.2.8, which is what I'm using), hot swappable
-Adjustable foot for increased or reduced angling
Cons:
-Minor discrepancies that notebook users may find initially annoying
-Tactile response, while good, is not the best
-Cord is too short
-No power key
I use this keyboard with my OS X 10.2.8 based PowerBook, and overall, I'm very pleased. There are some odd glitches, such as the fact that the key repeat rate is slower on this keyboard than on the PowerBook's integrated keyboard, and the tactile response isn't ideal for high-speed touch-typists like myself. On a good keyboard, I can reach about 130 words per minute, but this keyboard doesn't give me the right "feel" for me to hit speeds like that.
If you're used to using your notebook's integrated keys for controlling your notebook's sound or display, you may be initially disoriented by the arrangement of the keys. Turning your notebook display's brightness up or down is possible with this keyboard, for example, but the keys that do it aren't labeled -- I discovered it purely by accident thru experimentation. And where's the function key? Granted, it's not critical -- perhaps not even needed at all -- but I'd still like to have it available to me. The keyboard doesn't have a power key, either, meaning you'll have to use the Mac's power key.
The cord, at only thirty-two inches, is *much* too short. Be aware of this limitation, especially if (for example) you're thinking of plugging this keyboard into the back of a tower that's sitting on the floor behind your desk.
On the upside, the keyboard is very handsome and comfortable to use.

I am using this keyboard with my Win XP PC and it works perfectly. It fortunately came with a USB extension cord. It is quite stylish but this inadvertently makes my Logitech mouse and Viewsonic monitor look sadly ancient. My only real complaint would be that it isn't equipped with a pair of feet to increase the keyboard angle.

Compared with a decent Microsoft PC keyboard, I noticed that on the Apple keyboard (1) the distance between the surfaces of two adjacent keys is shorter, (2) the surface of each key is flatter, and (3) the height difference between an unpressed and pressed key seems smaller. This gives the keyboard a softer/fuzzier feel that some people might not like or might need a little time to adjust to.

As a former Windows wonk, I was firmly committed to the classic clicker keyboard. That didn't make me very popular with other people in the room. The alternative, the quiet soft-touch keyboard made typing about as enjoyable as plunging one's fingers into a pile of cold raw liver.

When I bought a Mac mini, I decided I'd fully trick it out with a new keyboard. My first few keystrokes on this keyboard at The Apple Store made me wary. "It's too quiet, " I thought, but then I noticed the touch is a lot like the keyboard on an IBM Selectric typewriter. Each key has that moment of resistance before bottoming out, essential for speedy touch-typing.

The built-in USB hub is a nice feature but is the only real drawback. The Mac mini has two USB 2.0 ports but when you plug this keyboard in and plug a mouse (ugh) or trackball (yeah!) into the keyboard, you end up with one USB 2.0 port and one USB 1.1 port. So much for getting your money's worth from any USB 2.0 device you plug into the keyboard's free port.

Aside from that, the keyboard is the perfect match for a Mac mini. The multimedia keys (volume up, volume down, mute, eject) are icing on the cake, especially if your iTunes collection has a wide dynamic range.

The water damage remark is spot on, these recent Apple keyboards are really hard to salvage if they get wet. They're also hard to clean, a problem that is exacerbated by the pure white on clear materials. There are covers like iSkin that should rectify that, but the material feels weird.

A pretty decent second choice for a basic compact Mac keyboard is the Kensington Keyboard in a Box. It lacks the dedicated volume and eject keys found on the Apple units, and it has a slightly mushier feel. The enclosure is somewhat larger front to back (it's about the same width as the Apple board), but it comes in a more dust tolerant gray/black color scheme and takes spills a little more gracefully.

Despite the flaws, I'm buying yet another Apple keyboard because the size and port placement are just right for my needs, and I am spoiled by those volume and eject keys.

Verified Purchase
My keyboard that originally came with my emac died recently. I was all set for buying another Apple keyboard, but something not made by Apple, unfortunately. Well, none of them had the things I needed (eject button, 2 usb ports) so I was stuck with buying the standard Apple keyboard again.

As much as I love my Apple computer, my apple mouse, my apple ipod shuffle, this is not my favorite Apple proudct. Heck, I preferred using the PC keyboard I had to use in the days I was waiting for my keyboard to come in the mail!
