    Did Apple update the keyboard in attrition to the 512MB of VRAM ?

    F4 used to bring up Dashboard (when it was unchecked under MC to be used as a space), now.. it F4 brings up Launchpad, so Mission Control is the only way to get DB.

    Whats the new key combo ?

    Apple updated the keyboard with Lion on the MBAs, maybe it has done the same for the late 2011 MBP? Do you have such a MBP?

    I use F12 as the dashboard button (I have enabled standard F keys though). I have the early 2011.

    3 finger swipe to the left opens Dashboard for me

    You can also put Dashboard in your dock and get to it that way.

    I have the new MBP with Lion pre-installed. Only got it today.

    By default, tried it, seems the FN + F12 key you mentioned brings Dashboard up though.
