First Look: Apple Wireless Keyboard

1:13 /

Apple bundles its Wireless Keyboard with every new iMac because it matches the computer's strengths in terms of minimal design and simple functionality. While some may bemoan its lack of extra features, the Apple Wireless Keyboard does the job and looks good doing it.

-Hi! I'm Justin Yu, associate editor for cnet.com and today we're taking a first look at the Apple Wireless Keyboard. It ships today with every new iMac and matches its minimalist design and simple functionality, but with a few extra features that give it an edge over the competition. First of all, this keyboard uses Bluetooth technology to connect wirelessly to your computer. That means you cannot only use it with the iMac but also with the Apple iPad and the iPhone. You'll also notice that Apple got rid of the numerical keyboard usually on the right side in lieu of a much thinner overall profile. The new layout also matches that perfectly with Apple's latest Magic Trackpad. You might also be wondering about waning battery life, and well, Apple has a solution for that as well. This bar on the back of the keyboard doubles as both an angled stand as well as the compartment for the two AA batteries. You can use rechargeables, but it actually has a power management features that shuts down the keyboard if you don't use it for awhile and automatically turns back on when you're ready to type again. For all the innovative features, attractive design, and affordable price tag, it's easy to recommend the Apple Wireless Keyboard to anyone shopping for Mac friendly input device. You can read all the details on the full review at cnet.com. But that's my time, I'm Justin Yu and this is the Apple Wireless Keyboard.
