    Simple question. Do I get more shortcut assignability with the full sized apple keyboard or not? I figure I may not because the number's across the top and the numbers on the number pad probably just duplicate the same function. I'm going to buy an apple keyboard for use with ableton live and logic and may as well get the small one if the number pad doesn't give me more shortcut assignability.

    I'm not considering the bluetooth version as it's supposed to be a battery muncher - anyone disagree?

    It definitely is a battery muncher, it really amazes me because every other battery powered keyboard I have owned would last at a minimum two times longer, but all of them offer way more features.

    Its not a battery muncher for me, but then again I've always had rechargables and recently switched to an all Eneloop lineup

    Yah the BT keyboard does chug down the batteries pretty quick. I dont know if its because I don't turn mine off at all or what. It's suppose to go to sleep after inactivity so I dunno.

    I have the full size keyboard as well so it don't matter.
