    I don't know how much they'll cost but they won't be free. Do you still have the keys? You can reattach them yourself if so. :cool:

    I don't believe you'll get the keys replaced for free. Check out eBay-I just bought a replacement keyboard for just under $20.

    I've never ordered from there, but looks like you can order the seperate keys on there. About 9 dollars each. (I'm assuming this is a g4, I didn't check for any earlier models)

    Apple stores will try and convince you that you need a whole new keyboard.

    No, unfortunely I don't know what I did with them... guess I'll have to buy them. Well thanks again, this helped a lot. :cool:

    A friend of mine went to the genius bar and asked for a new Command Key, and got it for free! . . . I think that's what he did . . . :eek:

    I went in to the local Authorised Apple Reseller and he didn't know which the command key was,( :eek: ) it wouldn't have been so bad if it was the Saturday kid but this was the manager/owner!

    Haha, I'm sure the staff at Regent Street knew a bit more than that!
