    I LOVE it!

    It is so much better than the MBP keyboard!

    I was playing around with one at the Apple Store yesterday. The spacing of the keys is a REAL problem for me. Typing on it feels very awkward.

    My MBPs' layout is much better IMO, but THAT keyboard has other problems. In particular it just feels very flimsy. And it just seems like if I use it an awful lot, the paint's gonna wear off the keys.

    I've since gotten an iSkin, which I guess helps the feel of the keys somehwat. Even so, I plug in a USB keybaord and mouse when I'm at home or work. The Apple USB keyboard is AWESOME, in my opinion. As is the Mighty Mouse.

    :eek: Me, too.

    After owning three Apple portables, my most to least preferred keyboards: MacBook, PowerBook G4 (12"), iBook G4 (12").

    I like it, though I wish the keys were slightly indented like the TiPB keyboard (the TiPB keyboard is my fav. keyboard design). My fingers tend to "slide" on the keys (no, they are not oily or sweaty, just a little callused).

    I think the keyboard has perfect spacing. Key travel is perfect too.

    It may only be me, but i LOVE the way laptop keys are. I dont type any faster, maybe even slower, but they feel so nice. I am weird like that. I like the feeling of the keys. I have 2 usb apple keyboards and for some reason I like one over the other, because it feels more soft to push down.:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    It would be perfect if it had a few buttons i'm still sorely missing for my windows days, namely print screen (I know you can do it in other ways, but I always preferred just hitting a button) and a Delete key. But the spacing is wonderful, it takes a little getting used to but once you do, brilliant for typing.

    i've grown fond of the spacing between the keys, and i actually like the look now. i've always liked the feel of the keyboard, solid keystrokes.
