    Note the F keys on the 11 inch, and the new power button. What's missing?

    Also note the lack of the word 'backlit' in the descriptions for either machine...

    EDIT: Both machines have the same keyboard, just to eliminate the power button in the name of aesthetics.

    Sadly, I think you are correct

    Weirdly, when configuring in the dutch store it does say:

    Verlicht toetsenbord (Nederlands) & Gebruikershandleiding (Engels)

    Which means it does have a backlight.

    This same trick happened to me 2 years ago when buying the 13 inch macbook unibody.

    turned out not to have light in the end!
