MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Aluminum Slim Wireless Keyboard From Satechi

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Aluminum Slim Wireless Keyboard.

Satechi's keyboard, priced at $74.99, is a simple wire-free keyboard that connects to your Mac or iOS device via Bluetooth.


It's available in silver with white keys or space gray with black keys to match Apple's silver and space gray devices. It's also been designed with diamond cut chamfered edges for a design that rivals Apple's own Bluetooth keyboard.


The Aluminum Slim Wireless Keyboard was created specifically with the Mac in mind with function hot keys, a full numeric keyboard, and a USB-C port for recharging. It connects via Bluetooth 3.0 and has a range of 33 feet.


You can connect up to four devices at once to the keyboard, and switch between them with a button press on one of the four Bluetooth keys. Compatible devices include iMac Pro, iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, and iPhone.


We have seven of Saetchi's Aluminum Slim Wireless Keyboards to give away. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

I wish the control key was in the correct spot.

Straight keyboards are so bad for our wrists. We need more options for split keyboards, designed for Mac.

USB-C charging over crappy Lightning, and presumably this has a functional amount of key travel.


Just curious, what is the charging time difference with pure-USB vs Apple's use of a Lightning cable? Lightning can charge iPads quickly, why not keyboards?

What is the "correct" spot for the Control key? Are you referring to a typical PC keyboard layout that has it on the bottom-left corner?

Why pick this over the Apple offerings?

Has anyone actually used these? They look interesting, but feel is like 90% of a keyboards functionality, and I can't find reviews on them anywhere.

The older/cheaper generation seems to be really poorly reviewed.

An interesting difference between many non-Apple "designed for Mac" keyboards and Apples' longtime design is the absence of an = key on the number pad. As a longtime Mac user, I rely on the = key a lot.


Yeh, it’s quite surprising Apple include it ..... because the way they pitch the price of their products .... how they conduct the running of their production factories and conditions for worker personel abroad ..... the idea of = or equal doesn’t seem to come into their ethos at all ...... Equal pay for men and women, fair pay/fair days work, equal chance for the rich and poor on the planet to afford to acquire just one of their poor-value-for-money products ..... without ending up in a debtor’s prison. :D:p

Apple’s obscene profit margins are a clear testimony to the truth of the above ..... not to mention every time they do a so called software ‘upgrade’ (downgrade more like!)or bring out a new device ..... it breaks compatibility and connection ability to a whole host of third party devices/software over the years .... and even Apple’s own products won’t talk or connect anymore.
How stupid is that for a policy to alienate your customers?! Unbelievable!

The equal sign on an Apple keyboard is clearly an ironical statement.

It used to denote a connection between two sides of an equation.

Computers were adopted and became popular because they were once, in their heyday great connectors and communicators between many devices, and third party producers could afford to spend time and money to keep up with changes they thought were improving things.
Alas, Apple’s leadership and software developers have ‘lost the plot’ ..... and just work to kill connective choice and cooperate with third party developers ..... who have now largely gone bust and the sensible ones given up working with Apple ..... because they know it will end in tears 99% of the time.

=/equal opportunity
+ profit + caring + sharing isn’t in Apple’s equation anymore, or ethos ..... driven out by hard nosed accountants and the worst type of greedy people Big Business attracts.

Sneak into Tim Cooke’s office ..... you’ll probably find out his keyboard has the =/equal symbol missing!

Would prefer it without a numpad. What I really want, though, is a good 3rd-party trackpad.

It costs half as much, for one.
