    Hey, I've finally talked my gf into buying herself a shiny new mba :)

    I am also very new to the mac world (will be receiving my mbp this week) so i couldn't answer some of her questions which are a deal breakers for her.

    I told her not to worry because i am sure you can answer her questions :)

    She is intending to use both osx + ms office and windows (xp or vista) using boot camp.

    She would like to know if there are home and end keys. We couldn't spot them in the keyboard pictures we saw (no apple stores selling mba yet here in Israel so we only have pictures :( ).
    I guess there is some kind of a shortcut to the home and end (by the way what is it ? :) )

    However its very important for her to make sure such shortcut exists and that it will also works in windows (xp or vista)

    We must have an answer soon because we only have the option to buy it during this week (by a friend in the states )

    Thanks so much
    Roee.

    Under Mac OS X, press the function + left arrow for home, function + right arrow for end (function + up/down keys for page up and page down also). Not sure if these work in Windows though.

    It should work once the drivers are installed and maybe before that, but be sure to install those.
