    How do you use the Number Pad on a MacBook Pro?

    Thanks

    I don't think the unibody MacBooks Pro have number pads. Older models do, though.

    I'm not sure I ever understand the question.

    Press fn+F6 and you'll see a little green light appear under the f6 key.

    Then the keypad buttons will be in operation.

    Not on a Unibody. This feature has been removed.

    Not available on the early 2008 MBP either.
    You have to use the top row number keys or buy a USB number pad.

    F6 is one of the keyboard backlight keys.
    Even the old PPC iBook had number pad keys and a number lock option to use them. :(
