    I have a PowerBook G4 and a Brand New three day old MacBook. Does anyone know why there is a not an enter button next to the command key on the right side of the keyboard. The key that I'm talking about is the one that is on the bottom row next to the directional arrows. On my Powerbook, the last row goes as:
    fn|ctrl|Option|Command|Space|Command|Enter|Dirctional arrows.
    But on the MacBook it goes:
    fn|ctrl|Option|Command|Space|Command|Option|Directional arrows.

    The reason that I am asking about this is that I use Quicksilver, and have the hot key for it set to the command enter on that row bc the keys are next to each other. Right now I have the keys on the macbook set to Option left arrow. Which doesnt bother me. I was just wondering why they decided to change it.

    Hi - does anybody know ?

    I have a 2 year old MacBook and use the enter key on the bottom row all the time - have done since PowerBooks. My sister has a new MacBook (SR) and the keyboard bottom row has no enter key. It is even worse for us UK users cause the normal enter key is even smaller than the one on the US MacBook keyboard. Mad
