Pros:
Key presses feel nice.
Cons:
No insert key. No media keys. Arrow keys are mushed up.
Other:
You could get a similar one with a number pad (SKU.44379). Theres a differnt style, white fullsized keyboard with similar kind of keys if your not especially after the 'mac look' (SKU.71852). It might also be worth looking at getting one of the wireless ones (preferably rechargeable, they cost like $30 but have the media keys as well (SKU.57799). You would also need a Bluetooth dongle but there like a $1. The fn key is placed between the ctrl+win kay, many of the other keyboards including the genuine mac ones, have it on the very bottom left (I probably prefer it this way).
Bottomline:
It's a fairly nice keyboard provided you don't wan't media keys or many features. The build quality seems nice and there is a nice feel to the keypresses (although the $60 genuine mac ones are a bit nicer still but there's not to much in it).
