    I was browsing the French Apple site and came across this (re. the Apple Pro keyboard):

    Full page here.

    Can someone with better French than I tell me what that means? Because as far as I can tell, it translates to finally a keyboard with a touch of hell.

    Seems like a wierd way to advertise a keybord... I guess I'm just missing something... or at least I hope I am :)

    Gotta love the French, eh?

    Dictionary says:

    enfer: hell, inferno, netherworld

    Strange... I guess they mean it has a devilish feel?:rolleyes:

    well that's definitely weird, especially if you don't understand french.

    I ran the text through an online translator and got this:
    Finally a keyboard with a key of hell!

    Doesn't shed much light on the subject, does it?

    My three years of college French edumacation are telling me that it means:

    "Finally a keyboard with a hell of a touch."

    But, what would I know, I got nothing but ****ing Ds the whole way through. :)

    There is no rumor involved... I just thought it was weird.

    So you're saying the translation is Finally a keyboard with a key of hell? Is that a French saying or something? Because it makes no sense to me in English...

    Another possibility.

    The closest thing I can come up with is -

    "Finally a keyboard with one hell of a touch (or feel)" Pretty sure those words can be interchanged while translating. One hell of a feel. that's much better.
