    FN+Delete deletes the text ahead, rather than before.

    I'm pretty sure that they didn't use specific delete keys.

    there are actually 3 deletes I guess.. Cmd+Delete sends a file to Trash.

    Go look at ANY desktop PC keyboard. There's "delete" and "backspace." On the macbooks, the "backspace" key, is labeled delete, but performs the backspace command. Fn+"Macbook Delete"= PC delete key

    PC Backspace: Erases the letter in front of the cursor
    PC Delete: Erases the letter behind the cursor
    Mac Delete: Erases the letter in front of the cursor
    Fn+Mac Delete: Erases the letter in front of the cursor
