    My air died, and I've decided to go for a new MBP.
    I am norwegian and need that norwegian keyboard layout. I'm planning on buying the MBP in Taiwan, so will get a english layout.
    Any way I could get the keyboard from the air into the MBP?

    Could I change individual keys? That might be easier, but there is an issue. On the norwegian keyboard the ' sign is on the upper left corner below ESC, but when using the english keyboard (which acts as norwegian after chosen norwegian keyboard layout) the same key is a <. This makes it very hard to write english as I can't find the ' .

    Thanks.

    You would have to buy a norwegian top case for your new mac, Can't just swap ou tthe keys

    You can't swap keys. You'll either have to buy a norwegian MBP or a norwegian top case:(

    You could do like I do and set a keyboard shortcut to switch between languages. The English layout is better for coding so I use it a lot.
