    I'm thinking of getting a wireless Apple Keyboard that I will use mostly for programming. Would you recommend the US version or the international version? I know the difference is not big, but it makes the choice even harder.

    So which one do you think is (slightly) better than the other for programming? Also, if I would ever work with programming in the US, would most keyboard be the US or the international version?

    The programming languages I would use the most are HTML, CSS, JavaScript, C# SQL/MySQL, ASP.NET and PHP. Possible also Objective C in the future.

    Thanks for your help!

    Don't know what the difference between the keywords are. Does the international version feature the '$' symbol? That symbol is used in script programming extensively. If you worked in the U.S. you would see U.S. keyboards.
