This new Apple thin keyboard that came with my iMac is turning out to be crap to type on. I have never in my life made so many typing errors as with this keyboard. Missed-out lettrs, double CApslock, and there's something about the lack of long key action that my hands are just not adapting to. It still feels like typing on a really large calculator. Just because it looks pretty doesn't make it more usable, alas. Now that I'm back doing a loto writing, I may have to hunt down another decent 3rd party keyboard. I loved my Mcally iceKey but it died from overuse and old age.

I still use an old Apple Design Pro Keyboard via a ADB to USB adapter. It's the last good keyboard they made. At work I have several of the clear ones and the flat ones... can't stand them. Especially the clear ones.
Some people love them. I have seen two of my customers that have been typesetters for decades that love the thin keyboards. One in particular is memorable. She's 72, and when we unpacked the keyboard she gave the "oh no, what's this?" but when she sat down to type you could see the look on her face change in just a few seconds, and within a minute she said that she was wrong, she loved the keyboard.
