    I would like to know if the size of the MBA keyboard is identical to the 13" rMBP's keyboard? I ask because I bought a 13" MBA keyboard slip cover and decided to get the 13" rMBP instead. I am wondering if I can just use that instead of returning it. The Air's keyboard looked identical in size and layout to the 13" rMBP, but I am just asking to be sure.

    Thanks

    please note however that the key travel is not the same. the rmbp is closer to the cmbp than the air. the key travel is less on the air due to volume restrictions. same goes for the touchpad click.
