Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad review – CNET

There’s now more magic in Apple‘s Magic Keyboard — a new version of the slim, wireless accessory now includes a 10-key numeric keypad. It’s very, very similar to the current Magic Keyboard, now a couple years old, but it makes the process of typing numbers into your computer a breeze.

Previously, you’d have to find an old, wired Apple keyboard , some models of which included a number pad, or else hook up a third-party keyboard or standalone number pad, all of which could break the silvery symmetry of your carefully constructed iMac tableau.

Some creative apps, such as Pro Tools and Final Cut, also use number pad shortcuts.
