    I was wondering if anybody could tell me if it is possible to order a MacBook Pro with the International Engl. keyboard layout like the one you can get in Europe. The main and important difference is that the Return key is L Shaped and there is one more key on the keyboard, which makes it much easier to map to different languages.
    I speak English, German, French and learn Russian. The US Standard keyboard sucks for everything besides programming.
    Or do I have to order it somehow from Europe and pay the weak Dollar tax or the Apple currency politics fee whatever you want to call it. How would this work with all the taxes? European prices include all taxes.

    PS: I don't care all that much about the actual letters on the keys as you can't have that for 3 languages anyway. I don't see why so many people like backlit keyboards I never really look at it. All I need is enough keys to map my custom layouts too.

    Sorry to rain on your parade, but you only got four choices in the U.S. Apple Store:

    Backlit Keyboard (English) / User's Guide
    Backlit Keyboard (Western Spanish) / User's Guide
    Backlit Keyboard (French) / User's Guide
    Backlit Keyboard (Japanese) & User's Guide (English)

    Sorry man.

    Call up apple's sales department and tell them about your request, they should be able to arrange it for you ;)
