    The KB itself, works great with a Mac.
    We use it, and the wireless mouse, on our Point-of-sale cash register.
    Works easy, and no wires is great.


    But I too, am hoping to hear from anyone using it on their IPad.
    I can't convince the office that I should be allowed to borrow that one to try yet.

    I use my Apple Wireless Keyboard with my iPad 64. It works great and is easy to set up.

    It does work great with the ipad. It takes a short time to link, but does so without any issues. But you need to remember to hit the eject key to disconnect or it will stay connected for a L O N G time. I guess that's great, but could eat batteries big time on the keyboard long term.

    In the marketing materials for the wireless keyboard and the KB dock, the Apple store said that the wireless had keys that may not work with IPad, and the KB Dock had keys that are specific to the IPad.

    I do not have a wireless keyboard, but love the keyboard dock. Anyone have both to compare? Can the keys be re-allocated/assigned on the wireless to functions on the IPad?

    I find myself using the keys quite a bit now, but would like to get a wireless keyboard simply for the landscape ability this would provide. The portrait view in the KB dock can cause a little eyestrain as the text in the forum always refreshes as quite small on each new topic.

    I just got the apple wireless keyboard & I really like it... though I am still waiting for my 3G, the keyboard is great with my mac pro & it takes up so much less desktop space & looks like it would travel well if need be... I got it because it is more versatile than the dock keyboard.

    I found this article which describes the difference in the keyboards... the keys are somewhat different between the two:

    Very good article/review on both devices. It gave me a good insite on which one I will buy.
    Kudos for the posting it here in the forum.

    Does anyone know if the keyboard lights up like the keypad on the Macbook Pro's?

    great post, thanks. I read the article and think I just might go ahead and get the wireless. I already have the KB dock, but it would be nice to have one for home and one for work.

    Can it easily be shared between the iPad and a mac pro?

    I would love to be able to have 1 keyboard that I can press a button or something and have it type on the iPad then switch it back to the mac.
