    Does anyone know where/how/if I can get a few replacement keycaps for the Thin Aluminum iMac keyboard? Would Apple be able to sell me some? Is there a place where I can buy broken keyboards? Anything? :confused:
    I don't want to have to rebuy the keyboard. Thanks.

    I just went to my local Apple Service Provider, when a key broke off my iBook keyboard. They didn't have a spare iBook key, but they gave me the right key from an old, spare PowerBook keyboard they had lying around.

    That's the "silver tooth" of my iBook... :D

    Apple sells the all the spare keys for the new aluminum keyboard in a kit that you can find on the Apple Store here. They actually have a smaller kit with fewer keys also for if you don't need all the keys that the larger kit has and you can find it here. :D

    That's pretty funny. You almost had me.

    To the OP: Ask the Apple store if they have a busted keyboard or system going back to the warehouse that you could pull a key off. If they're dicks about it, then just gank one off a floor display and give 'em the finger on the way out.

    Apple Key Caps

    You can get pretty much any kay cap from any Apple keyboard or laptop from http://www.thebookyard.com/apple_keycaps.php
    They have identified the various different variants of each range. I don't think there's a more comprehensive source for them.
