The Apple Wireless Keyboard takes up little desk space. The footprint is determined by the keys themselves. It is a fully featured keyboard with 16 function keys, a full numeric keypad, control keys as well as navigation keys for quick orientation in documents or games. Also included are conveniently located and easy-to-use audio controls as well as a media eject key. The Keyboard adapts seamlessly to the working environment of the Mac via Bluetooth, providing cable-free operation at a distance of up to ten metres. As they are being typed on the keyboard, confidential data are secured from unwanted access by wireless 128-bit encryption. During periods of inactivity, the keyboard automatically switches to an energy-saving mode, in order to save the internal battery life. The main power switch is located unobtrusively on the bottom of the keyboard.
