    Are the keyboard mechanisms the same? I really want to put the white keys in my new aluminum Macbook.:) BTW, I'm talking about replacing each key one by one, not replacing the keyboard internals.

    erm no (well most likely most people won't go through all the trouble). Cause its not the standard Apple keyboard, it has soo many screws in it and if Im not mistaken, its connected to each other, so its like, if you broke 1 keypad, you need to replace the whole keyboard something like that (although, I never seen anyone break a keypad before)

    Are the white keys even made to work with the backlit keyboard?
