    Alright i wanna know if its possible:

    To mod a Macbook Pro by replacing the keyboard with the new apple wireless keyboard- basically to have MBA-like keys but white and very nice lookiiiing. I imagine something like this on the next gen MBP- i mean they are the EXACT same size.

    The other question is how do you plan to make the holes, do the wiring, etc.?

    What wires? it's bluetooth :D

    The only problem is changing the batteriers when they run out, unless you meant like using the mbp as the power source then that I dont really know.

    Keep in mind, if I read you correctly, that if you want to replace the keys, make sure that the catches on the bottom match up so the keys will snap on... I know it doesn't work with a 12" PowerBook.

    While it looks cool, that would be quite the project. :eek: :)
