    Anyone else noticed this?

    I have an Apple wireless keyboard, bought for my 2006 iMac. It's great.

    The wireless keyboard that comes with the iMac looks identical, but the keys don't feel as good. They are slightly more 'spongy' and don't 'click' as confidently.

    Checking the back, I see the following:

    NEW A1314 3V DC
    OLD A1255 4.5V DC

    Anyone else noticed this, or did you all know this already! :D

    (just noticed the F3 and F4 keys are labelled differently)

    It's been quite a time they moved from 3 AA cells (A1255 - one cell got 1.5V time 3 = 4.5V) to 2 AA cells:

    I don't think they changed anything substantial afterwards.

    I have a mid-2011 iMac and the wireless keyboard is A1314, so they've been using this for awhile.
