306029, Anyone have a magic keyboard?

What are your thoughts on it? Mulling it verse the smart folio + Magic Trackpad and tryin to figure out the pros and cons.

Is it hella heavy? Are the viewing angles wide enough? I’m 6’4.

Most of the reviews of it are either too close to when it came out or kinda arbitrary so I thought I’d ask here.

It's heavy as fuck. I've had it for a while now. Works well, durable and protective. I haven't check specs but I'm pretty sure that my iPad outweighs my MBP with this keyboard is attached. Also, you have to remove the tablet from the case to use it in portrait mode. At this price and weight, Apple should have solved for everything else.

the weight and lack of protection is what turned me off to it.

Laptop in almost 2 years. I won’t say that it’s worth the retail asking price but if you ever catch one on sale, it’s worth it.

I’m actually typing on it right now.

I like it a lot. Almost bought the magic keyboard but read a lot about this one and everyone seemed happy with it. I tend to prefer when I am just holding the ipad and scrolling that its better to have the case off. It is best when its on a desk so the backstop can hold it up. on a couch with your legs out in front, its pretty solid. but if you are laying down its pretty useless to be honest. i'm not a fan of folding it back behind the iPad and holding it with the keys facing out.

my favorite part is you dont have to charge it (im sure the magic has same tech). if you want to save the money, you aren't missing out on this bad boy...

The one with the removable keyboard from Logitech. Still haven’t decided though.

They travel with me constantly, I don't find them to be too heavy at all. The Magic Trackpad might be my favorite Mac accessory of all time.
306088, that's high praise
