    I have a MacBook Air 13 Inch 2010 256GB 2.13GHz 4GB RAM
    I am gonna buy a keyboard cover for it, so is the MacBook Air's keyboard the same size as the MacBook Pro's?

    No, they should be completely different. The MBA now has the power button integrated into the keyboard and no backlight keys (like on the MBP).

    You got the question wrong.

    I meant the key spacing, size etc.

    The backlight feature should have been retained as its a handy feature and adjustable from low to high or completely off to save power.

    Both the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs are listed as having
    on Apple's tech specs page. I would assume "full-size" means they have the same keyboard as the rest of the Mac lineup.

    EDIT: just had a look around and the same quote is listed for the MacBook Pro.

    I have the keyboard skin and fits on both computer. The difference will be that some of the images for the function key printed in the cover won't match the real function of the key. after f5 everything has shifted one key to the left.
    if you don't mind, it will get the job done.

    Other than the 11 inch, all current MacBook keyboards are the same. I recently purchased a Moshi clearguard and purchased a MacBook one and it fits like a glove. Great product.
