I was wondering if it's possible and without to much risk to exchange the keys from a '11 MBP and the Apple Wireless Keyboard. Since I use my MBP almost exclusively at home with an ACD I would prefer black keys on my wireless keyboard so I don't have to clean them that often.

Seems to me the key phrase in your question is "without much risk."

You might be able to swap all the keys out without damaging the keyboard, but I'm rather sure you'll void your warranty on both products, and there's a good likelihood that you'll bend or bust something and it'll never be quite-right again.

Replacing the keyboard in recent Unibody designs is pretty major surgery. Just so you know.

I was kind of hoping that there might be some cheap tool to remove the keys, like the one for removing keys from a mechanical keyboard. But I guess the scissor switches are much more fragile than for instance mechanical switches.

I was also wondering if anybody has actually done this before?
