    Is the French canadian keyboard in Canada (on the 13" MBP) the one with all the "è", "à","é","ç","ù" keys already, or is it only with the "é" key?

    And is the English one the exact same as the US or is it different?

    Pics would help (which I wish Apple would provide when you click on the optional keyboards)...

    thanks!

    The english keyboard is identical in Canada and the U.S. I'm not sure about the French Canadian layout, but it's quite easy to type the french characters on the english keyboard. Just use option-e and then the letter, etc.

    If you are going to be using it to do french work at all, i would get the french keyboard for sure.

    my friend has one, and he's not even french and the useability is exactly the same for english usage.


    except some keys have french words like echap, or fin. or entre.


    you don't need any sort of knowledge of french to use it for english. but unless you are getting a deal on one with a french keyboard, or have to write papers in french.. i wouldn't bother getting one.

    I think you still have to press shift to use any french character.
