I am trying to decide if I should get a 13" Macbook pro now or wait until the upgrade in Q1 2010. The only way I would get one now is if the Macbook Pro 13" MB466LL/A has a backlit keyboard. Does anybody know if that MBP has a baklit keyboard? Thanks

Yes, that MBP has a backlit keyboard. All MacBook Pro's have that.

Maybe Im just crazy, but why wouldnt you just look at the Apple Web site for this info?

http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/features.html
I didnt check the apple site becuase Im pretty sure that the site is not talking about the same model im looking to buy. Im looking to buy the MB466LL/A model and the new model is the MB990LL/A. I heard that the early model 13" dont have baklit keyboard so I am trying to make sure before I buy it.

My bad then. I thought that you were looking at the current MacBook Pro.

but seriously, is the backlit keyboard that much of a dealbreaker to you? ;)

i see your problem now.

MB466LL/A is NOT a 13" MBP.

Its the 13" Unibody MACBOOK, that was briefly sold as a Macbook (not PRO) before Apple changed it into the 13" Macbook PRO. Confusing.

ALL 13" Macbook PROs have a backlit keyboard.

Is there some reason you are stuck on that particular 13" Macbook (not PRO) MB466LL/A?

Price? or what?

The reason I was looking at the older model is because I can get it for $800, and I want the backlit keyboard because I think it will be very useful for a soon to be college student

Yep all the current Macbook Pros have backlit keyboards, but the previous aluminum macbooks just had it on the top end model I think!
