$39.00 seems a little steep for a Bluetooth KeyPad
but you have to admit its pretty cool.

Apparently it could go to F19.
Who new.

Pretty cool.

Too bad it's made of plastic. It would have been much neater if it shared the keyboards batteries or extended the keyboard battery life with the additional batteries.

Personally the way I see it. People doing large amounts of data entry would simply go with Apple wired keyboard with the numeric keypad.

On occasion, OWC puts their Open Box
USB Aluminum Extended KB's on sale
for $29.00. I'd rather that than an add
on numeric Keypad.

Maybe you could remap and reprogram it to be a remote and skip the rest of the keyboard.

Yeah, I really had no idea it went that high and then when I thought about it, I realized I have never seen one of Apple's numeric keyboards up close and personal. I had a MBP and then got a Late 2009 Mini HTPC for which I use a Logitech DiNovo Edge.

So I guess my question is, what in the world do you use those F13-F19 keys for? Does Apple already have them usefully mapped?

No, mine certainly don't do anything with stock OSX and stock keyboard. I guess I could map them to do something if I felt the need!
