    Hey Folks,

    Had my MBP for a long time now - Been using it extensively for games (WOW, TF2, etc) and have fallen in love with its keyboard layout and the feel of its keys. As I am buying a new desktop computer, I need a new keyboard. As far as I know, and have found on the net, the only mac laptop style external keyboards available are the normal macbook styled ones ...

    Does anyone know if someone sells MBP styled keyboards, or if their is someone whom knows of a way of cheaply getting a MBP keyboard and modding it into an external keyboard. ^_^; (IE getting a dead MBP and resurecting its keyboard!)

    PS - I really don't like the MacBook style :)

    Regards
    -Ferter

    id be interested in this aswell

    if you go into :apple: -> About This Mac -> More Info and hit "USB" you can see that the keyboard/trackpad comes under the USB section. so this means that they are connected via some sort of USB conenction, maybe it can actually be disconnected?? im not to sure ive never pulled a MBP apart.

    i have my older CD MBP, and my gf has the newest penryn MBP, i find the newer MBP keyboards quite hard to use. they are a completely different feel!!!!!!

    im completely in love with my KB, when the lappy dies :)() i shall be saving it no matter what haha.

    MBP keyboards are dead easy to take out,once you have taken out the battery etc & undone the 1001 screws all that remains is data ribbon to unattach,a few places do spare keyboards just google mac spares or something similar

    As for the OP's question about moding one i aint sure
