Okay, I got this Apple Keyboard matching my iMac when I got my iMac. I used it for a week, I got tired of it. I smashed it, anyone feel that Apple needs to make better keyboards?

I've never had any issues with Apple keyboards. I have always found them responsive, comfortable, and stylish.
If you or anyone doesn't like it, then nothing to worry about. You can use any USB keyboard with your Mac and put the Apple one aside (smashing it was a bit silly and over the top, IMO :black.

I LOVE the apple keyboards. I think they feel great, have great response and look great. What more could someone ask for?

I absolutely loved the keyboard on my powerbook as well. I am not loving the macbook keyboard as much.

i love the set up of the keys and i type extra fast on this keyboard- but I've found when playing WoW where a single missed keystroke could cost you your life (hahaha) it, sucks, for lack of a better word. But im not realy playing anymore so im not worried about it. plus, it matches tooo good.

The M7803 apple keyboard was the best apple keyboard ever made.

The thing is, I like keyboards that wear down and get softer to the touch the more you use them. For instance, if you never really use the num-pad, then it will be the same as when you first got it, but the home keys would be broken in and really easy to depress. The M7803 and most microsoft keyboards are great for this.

With that said I would like to say that I do NOT like the new generation of apple keyboard. They just won't break in. High five to the designers who made a keyboard that will last forever and will never lose its toughness, but I just don't enjoy the trouble I have with pressing the keys down. Call me a wimp, but I think using a keyboard should not require effort. That's why I love my powerbook's keyboard. It takes no effort what so ever to use.

On that note, I hadn't used a one of the new generation apple laptop's for any sort of coding or word processing until yesterday. I used a macbook for about 4 hours last night, and I was really disappointed with the new "spaced out effect" of the keys. Does anyone else feel this way?

Is anyone else looking forward to that new keyboard apple insider predicts will come with new iMacs?
