So wait, an almost identical one with less keys costs the same? Cold from me.

Have you ever seen a Mac Keyboard? There's is no delete button. Hoever if you press Fn+BackSpace that is delete.

People pay for compactness, and beauty. If your principle was correct, nobody would buy touch screen phones! Have some heat.

which is the single most retarded 'idea' apple ever had - worse than their continued insistence on crappy mouse design

The compact Mac keyboard is based on a laptop keyboard layout, where lots of keys are removed to save space. You simply need to hold down the Fn key to access the functions of the missing keys (Fn + Backspace = Delete), this is a standard thing for most small laptop keyboards. If it bugs you get the full sized Mac keyboard instead.

But putting a Delete key on would be like admitting that Apple customers can make mistakes!

The backspace does the same thing, but in the opposite direction.

I forgot how much the Delete key is required.. not at all. The only other thing you can come up with is the design of their mice? Don't buy one.

Dear oh dear...

Another Apple thread full of clueless PC users - who dont relise that a Delete button is not needed in Mac OS.

If any of you had half a brain you would be asking Microsoft why they haven't supplied a single button for Ctrl Alt and Delete - surely the most used key combination in Windows?

I'm curious...does Mac OS automatically detect whether you want to remove the character to the left or right of the carat when typing? That's clever...I didn't realise Steve Jobs had quite mastered mind reading. Seriously though, why do you say it isn't needed, I would like to know.

Delete key doesn't really bother me thought to be honest, good deal.

Oh, and Amazon have the full-size keyboard at this price anyway: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Apple-MB110B-A-Keyboard/dp/B000VLYEL4/ref=pd_cp_computers_0

Is this supposed to be a joke? I use the Delete function all the time when typing on my Mac.

Point is, the lack of a Delete key is nothing to do with Macs Vs Windows and everything to do with this being a compact keyboard. Many compact keyboards remove keys in favour of an FN key which allows you yo get at all the same functions as a larger keyboard by holding down the FN first. If you are viewing this page on a laptop there is a good chance it has an FN key.

Might get one for my PC so I can pretend to have a Mac FOR JOKES. ;)
And seriously, £25.99 for a keyboard? The letters better be printed with gold leaf.
Voted hot.

Gosh! As soon as you put 'Apple' in the title, the KIA drivers start ranting against all that is Apple and dismiss any Mac user as a brand ****!

Just to clarify, this is a compact keyboard, not a full keyboard, it is based on the layout of the MacBook range and is ideal for those who require a smaller footprint keyboard and do not require all the the keys of a full keyboard. It is made of Aluminium not plastic.

Good find at this price!
If you are enjoying your Windows experience - great, I'm happy for you, now leave the rest of us to enjoy Mac offers and deals without being subjected to your ridiculous rhetoric everytime an Apple deal pops up,
This site is designed to encourage users to post deals for the benefit of others, not to have a go at other users buying preferences!

The backspace on its own is the delete key on Macs, goes for small or the standard Apple Mac keyboards. Being a Mac user for over 10 years I've never actually used the 'proper' delete button (backspace button is better placed) and I'd not even noticed the FN key let alone used it until I read this... some info posted above is rather confused.

Great deal, just sold one of these used for more £££'s on eBay!
#21
I do dispair of some people that post on here. Just a little common sense or maybe just thinking before they post.

Look at a laptop keyboard. Its amazing what you have on there. There are actually 2 functions to a lot of keys. Proper madness I know. We should just make keyboards that are 2 foot long so we only ever have to press one key at a time.

Humans can only use one hand at a time as well so creating shortcuts that require the fn + delete is just madness. Why do people ever buy apple products eh. Their designers are obviously dwarfed in intellect by people that post such jems as 'wheres the del key' and 'why would anyone pay more than £5 for a keyboard'.

The mouse is brilliant, purely because of the multi touch goodness. Yes its too flat and too heavy, but its a worthy sacrifice.

And yes, this is effectively an external LAPTOP keyboard. The exact ones they use on the Macbooks. Theres no reason to use up extra space on a button which is rarely needed, and its not like its hard to hold down an extra button just to delete something :p
#24
Original price is too high and this price is still high too, but i'm getting one since its an apple product and its cheaper now!..... heat added :D
#25
Im not against having to use the Fn key to hit delete but some people are annoying me saying that delete isnt needed. Loads of programs require the use of delete. I would love some of you to use Excel all the time without the delete key, it would be a nightmare. The delete key deletes information from cells but backspace deletes the cells themselves! Too many people are being narrow minded by judging the differences on how it changes word processing than what it means to everyone

If your using Excel, chances are your using a Windows PC anyway.

And also, if your a regular user of office programs, you would NEVER think of buying an under-sized keyboard, that'd be just stupid.
#27
For those that say it doesn't have a delete key, it does. It's the backspace key! It does the same thing, for me anyway.

And those that dislike Mac's.. have you ever owned one? Have you ever tried one? Because the most likely answer is NO.

absolutely spot on. the mac owners are frothing at the mouth, failing to realise my views were based solely on the OP's statement in the deal description.

as for the 'compact' argument - i don't know of ANY other keyboard, laptop or compact or whatever that DOES NOT HAVE A DELETE KEY - unless it is made by apple...
#29
I don't think I've ever used the delete key in my life, why would I want to delete a letter to the right of the curser? there's never anything to the right as I haven't written it down yet....backspace on the other hand.....

Hot deal this ere keyboard, sadly no good for me as I use the number pad a lot for stuff....

It's a 3 button process for security reasons. Refer to Wiki for further boring details.

Spot on. The only times you'd need delete to function similarly to windows is when deleting text. Then you have to do the hugely exhaustive task of holding down an extra key.

Anyone knows how to activate the 2 USB ports to work on windows 7?
Ive just bought mine and its fanstatic but plugging in my iphone or any storage device it just says drivers cannot be installed correctly and wont recognise it.
#37
if you don't like Apple then go annoy someone else. Great brand and great Computers. Not my fault if you can't afford one and would rather have £400 "higher spec" PC. That will fill with virus' malware and spyware, fall apart after a few years and throw up bug and error messages. If you have never owned a Mac then Shut Up.

Great price for a keyboard. Need a wireless one though
#38
Been a Mac user for many many years and I too only ever use the backspace key to delete stuff.

So on PCs the Delete key deletes stuff in front of the curser, like on a Mac?
