    Hi all,
    currently running a 15" MBP 2.5GHz, 2gb RAM (soon to be 4gb :)).
    I mainly use it for graphic design/personal use and am in the process of buying a 24" display:D.
    I will be running 2 displays, so I will be in need of an external keyboard and mouse.
    At the moment I'm using the internal keyboard and trackpad in my mbp and am very fond of the 'fn' key which I use for the second comands of all F1-F12 keys.
    I personally prefer the look of the current wired keyboard but personaly would find the wireless more practical purely because of its 'fn' command not becuase of its ability to be mobile.
    If possible I'd like to get a wired keyboard, does anyone know if there is a key on the wired keyboard that does the same job as the 'fn' does on the wireless? or how i can program the F1-F12 keys for their multiple functions?
    ps. new member to macrumours so hopefully this thread works!:confused:

    The wired keyboard has the "fn" key above the arrows. Is that what you were looking for to be answered?
