    fig tree
    i dont see why it wouldnt, but you might be stuck with a white caps-lock key because of the wiring issue; don't know if it's removable.

    I too am not a fan of the white keyboard and mouse, you can pick up the old style keyboards on ebay. And yes technically with a bit of time and efffort you should be able to swap over the keys, but it wont be easy.

    The caps lock key is removable, at least on the new keyboards. The LED is on the actual keyboard and the caps lock key just has the little clear spot for the light to shine through
