    Hi guys, I'm thinking on buying a new Macbook Pro and I was wondering if the Spanish Keyboard option was only available online or I could just go to the Apple Store and buy one. I ask because I'll travel to the US and incase I can't just go and buy it I'll need to pre-order it and since I'm still not in the US I can't go to the Apple Store and ask.

    Oh and btw another question, Apple Guarantee is worlwide or just in the US?

    Thanks :)

    Applecare warranty for MBPs is worldwide.

    US stores will not have Spanish keyboards in stock.

    They make a film for your current keyboard that will make it a Spanish one.

    You can get a MBP with a Spanish keyboard at the online store. Not in the retail store though.

    They do? How does that work? The Spanish layout is physically different- not just a software remapping. Link?

    Yes You Can!!

    Si se puede.
    Puedes pedir en la tienda que te reemplacen el teclado por uno en español al momento de la compra. Pides que te ayuden en ella los asistentes de la tienda, ellos realizan la petición por la red propia. Luego compras el Mac y ellos se lo quedan para reemplazarte el teclado. Se demoran 3 días (eso dicen ellos, a mi me lo tuvieron en 2:))

    Yes you can.
    When shopping in Apple Store you can ask an assistant to setup an order for a macbook for another language keyboard, then you pay and they keep the mac for 2 or 3 days.

    In my case, Kbcovers is not the solution

    I have an Apple MacBook Pro 2006 with an english keyboard and I want change it for a panish one.

    I asked kbcovers and they said me that doesn´t have covers for my model because is "very old".

    Somebody can say me what can I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    From now it's NOT possible to change to a different keyboard in the Apple Store. I've being told this in the Apple Store and I double checked making a phone call to Apple Care.

    This policy has started two months ago. Exactly this month I asked three times to Apple employees and once I got the three affirmative answers and fully sure about it I bought my Macbook Air, made the appointment with the Genius and then I sadly found out this new rule.

    Now that Apple has become such a big and global brand... it s****!
