Hi, i'm relatively new to the mac world. I played a couple of times with a macbook and I'd really like to buy one. I do not want to invest a lot of money and I want to buy a refurb from the apple store. The only problem is that I need to use the Canadian Multilingual (CSA) layout and the refurbs only come with English US (US) keyboard (confirmed this by calling apple store). I know that I can switch the keyboard layout within OSX, but on the CSA keyboard there's one extra key (Ù - the one between Left shift and Z key). I found a way to live without that Ù key using dead keys to get the Ù character. However, Ù and ~ seems to be the same key between the two layouts, and I really cannot live without "/, \ and |". That extra key is giving me headaches... what will I get on a US keyboard (with CSA layout) when I press the real ~ key (the one to the left of key "1"). Will I get Ù, or /? Thanks for your help. I may not be a frequent poster, but I'm a frequent reader!
