Foolishly, I bought the very similar 'flat key' keyboard made my Cherry. Now, Cherry make excellent keyboards, I have been using Cherry for years, very good indeed, but, when I saw the (copy??) flat key version from Cherry, I bought it, and, was pretty happy, until I saw, and read the reviews about the Apple 'flat key' metal version. Well, I just had to buy it, and I did! The Apple version is far superior in every way, it's actually a fair bit cheaper than the Cherry and, it's made from proper metal, not a painted, pretend metal like the Cherry. Looking, you can tell the Apple is just sheer quality, the feel, looks and appearance, all confirm this, There are also, 2 (one each side) very useful USB sockets on the Apple keyboard, something the Cherry sadly lacked. The only gripe with the Apple was, the key layout and certain keys were not suited for Windows, it, primarly being a 'Mac' keyboard, in particualr, all the top row audio player keys were not reconised under Windows. However, there are several (I found out) key re-mapping programmes out there, that will remap your keys, it's will correct the ' and '' keys, also, the 2 and @ can be assigned correctly. It is also possible, as I have done it, to re-map the upper row of audioplayer keys, so, you can now, play, pause, rewind, fast forward, volume up & down etc., using Windows, extremely useful. If you want to know more, please email me. A really good, high quality keyboard, built to last and cheaper than a copy!! ........... in a word 'Excellent'!
