    My sister is getting me a MBP in Hong Kong. However, i'm really worried about the keyboard having chinese characters on it or something. Apparently the keyboard will be the US keyboard but I'm not 100%. I emailed Apple Hong Kong and they asked me to phone Apple hong kong support :rolleyes:

    So, does anyone know for sure?

    Don't worry, all the keyboards on Hong Kong macs are US based keyboards.

    There are no Chinese characters whatsoever, so you sister won't have to worry :)

    Enjoy the Macbook Pro!

    Are they cheaper there?

    My main concern would be that the laptop has issues and you won't be able to 1-1 exchange it when in the US.

    Yep. They are around £500 cheaper over there. Not sure if they are any cheaper to people in the US. I don't think so.

    if it was to have all the chinese characters on the keyboard, the keyboard would be the size of a football field ;)
