Apple Magic Keyboard (Numeric Keypad): Review

Check out this article titled Apple Magic Keyboard (Numeric Keypad): Review. posted on by

Just looked at a few of your images (: i'm actually happy i reached task darkness you. You're excellent!

What's up guys Mike here the detorri bored with a brief look at the new magic keyboard with numeric key pen so this is being launched alongside the new 2017 IMAX as a custom ad now this is $30 more expensive than the standard keyboard so retails for 129 and this basically replaces a 10 year old wired USB keyboard so we finally get a successor to that I never thought we would see it but we finally have it so we have an internal rechargeable battery and it's works either via bluetooth or a USB connection so you have the best of both worlds just like the other magic accessories to pair this to your Mac all

You have to do is connect the USB cable to the Mac and it instantly pairs and you can disconnect it once that's done or you can just go to your Bluetooth settings and find it under devices and as I said if you want to use this as a wired keyboard all you have to do is turn off Bluetooth and because the cable is removable that means if the cable is damaged you don't have to replace the entire keyboard now this is basically the same design as a magic keyboard just extended to the right for all the additional buttons well find a power switch in the upper right corner along

With the Bluetooth radio in the left corner the keyboard does have a nice incline to it but it's definitely much more shell than the previous model but it does make it more compact for portability so it makes it a great option for your iPad now if you look at the old keyboard next to the new keyboard for the most part the buttons are in the same place there's some changes to the icons the top function row was thinner and the bottom row was taller I've actually been using the magic keyboard since it came out and for the most part I consider it to be a

Pretty big improvement over the previous generation the keys are wider and I think they're a little more accurate they're not as wobbly and mushy as before so to me they feel a lot quicker I really have no complaints about it the only thing I would like to see is a little firmer click sort of like the MacBook Pro but then it might get a bit noisier now the 10 year old wired keyboard did have one feature that I think a lot of people liked and that were 2 USB connectors one on either side this became less useful with USB 3 and the power demands with more modern

Equipment so a lot of things just didn't work with it but it was kind of nice to have this hub sort of right next to your keyboard in terms of area life I'm able to get at least a month on the single charge and that's the case with a full sized keyboard as well like most Apple products is also made out of aluminum so it is fairly rigid but it does flex but even if it flexes quite a bit it still snaps back to a stable form so it doesn't wobble on your desk now for me I don't think I really have a need for the numeric keypad but it is nice to have the

Directional keys for gaming but ultimately I think I prefer a more compact keyboard just because it keeps me closer to the mouse so that's going to do for me in this quick look again this is available with your iMac order or you can pick this up in the store separately if you guys enjoyed this video please give it a thumbs up to let me know and I'll see you again in my next video
