Dave Caolo has been using the same Apple Extended Keyboard II for 20 years:
First is the sound. That lovely wooden-stick-on-a-hollow-log
“thonk” that announces each keystroke is yet to be duplicated.
It’s satisfying in a way that affirms your productivity. Much
like the jackhammer operator feels content at the end of a noisy
day’s work, I feel that I got much accomplished with all that
thonking and clacking.
I’m on my second.
Also, with an iMate ADB-to-USB adaptor and the Camera Connection Kit, it works with the iPad.
