The keypad that many missed
Although Apple wired keyboards have had keypad, the last wireless keyboard to have this functionality dating from 2003; the M9270LL model came with some of the first iMac LCD was a favorite of users, to the point that even today sells for between US $ 35 collectors (used) and $ 200 (new).

Convenience to capture numerical data
Although the general public thinks of Apple equipment as ideal for graphic arts, music and other creative industries, the fact is that for more than a decade has become a useful platform for offices of all kinds. Through applications like Microsoft Excel and Apple counterpart - Numbers - you can handle numerical data such as in other platforms. Likewise, Apple computers are frequently used in business applications, CRM, scientific and others. In these cases, alternative keyboard or full keyboard wireless keyboard wired "Summary" which comes standard with desktops is reduced.

The alternative: NewerTech Wireless Aluminum Pad
The uniform design has allowed Apple over the years the development of interesting accessories; We came from MacSales / OtherWorldComputing a recent issue of this device for our assessment and we can tell you that it works, like other Apple devices, as it should be. The installation was a matter of seconds, as you can see in the video below:

Bluetooth compatibility
Although the specifications speak of specific equipment (Mac, OSX, etc.) note that as Bluetooth keyboard is compatible with all devices we tested - Android tablets, mobile phones, etc. - Allowing the rapid entry of numeric data in a range of devices. Even we tried with an iPad connected to a physical keyboard, which perfectly complements the original Apple keyboard.

If we want to create an extended keyboard can connect an included plastic adapter that connects the keypad to traditional wireless keyboard; thus it can be handled like one piece.
