    I live in the US. When I go to the Apple website and try to select a keyboard for any MacBook, Thai language is obviously not one of the options. I was hoping that maybe this can be special-ordered somehow or perhaps it's something that a local Apple store can assist me with?

    Or is my only option to buy a MacBook from an Apple store in Thailand?

    I used to call in an Apple Store in Sydney in 2011 asking the same question (and also the Thai keyboard). Unfortunately, a guy said I need to buy from Thai stores. I ended up with buying a Macbook Pro with the US keyboard layout.

    This.


    You can possibly buy a keyboard cover that includes the Thai keyboard layout. Such as, https://www.amazon.com/HRH-Language...cover+macbook&qid=1564679217&s=gateway&sr=8-4

    Or you can buy the individual stickers for it.

    You could use a Thai keyboard skin. You overlay it over the keyboard to see Thai characters. You just need to choose the right skin to match the model of Macbook and keyboard layout you buy. I think the major differences are US or ISO. The other appear to use one layout or the other with localized characters.

    Beat me to it.:p

    I did buy the stickers for that.

    Well, if you don't mind. You can buy a MacBook in the US. When you come back to Thailand, you can engrave Thai keys with laser. There are some good reviews on Pantip. You can check on that. Now you can just buy the Thai sticker off the Internet like the above comment said.
