Unlike many people (e.g. Don) upgrading, I am downgrading my keyboard. (Okay, this is not 'new', I am downgrade to a secondhand version, and it has been here for 3 months.)
I have an Apple Wireless Keyboard (Bluetooth) from the iMac I bought in late 2006, which is still my main computer BTW. The keyboard is pictured below.
A year later, Apple released new aluminum keyboard (also Bluetooth), a new thin profile keyboard (to Don's dismay). Initially, I thought I would not like it, but after using it for a while in an Apple retail store, I liked it, and I have been using it since. It has been a very comfortable keyboard, and it is used on the iMac (my main computer).
Well, I am not changing the aluminum keyboard, but I decided to change the original wireless keyboard that came with the iMac in 2006 to (new) Apple Wireless Keyboard (aluminum thin profile again, sorry Don).
What do I do with the old Apple Wireless Keyboard (white)? It sits in the lounge and it has been used for PlayStation 3 and other minor tasks. It works well for me, just a bit heavy.
And this part will get Don's approval - it's an (unopened) secondhand item I bought from MacTalk's trading forum. (to Don: Antony is poor.) I got it about 3 months ago, and just opened it for the first time (for the photo).
I have been working on my 2+ years old MacBook Pro for a fair period of time, and I am getting used to using keyboard without the numerical keypad.
The beautiful of this keyboard is that it is very comfortable to use in a very thin profile.
In other words, the new wireless keyboard is less than one third (1/3) of the old wireless keyboard.
This Wireless Keyboard works smoothly with Apple iPad.
Both measures include the required batteries, and the kitchen scale is accurate to 1 gram.
Because of far less keys and far less weight, changing from the older Wireless Keyboard to newer Wireless Keyboard can be considered as downgrading. (to Don: Antony is poor.)
