    Maybe I'm dumb, but can someone explain why there are two different keyboards for the Macbook Pro? In online pictures, I usually notice this first one, which has longer shift keys and displays the name of the keys too, such as command, delete, tab etc...The second picture is my own keyboard which is a little different to the previous one. Why are there differences in the keyboards?

    Same thing in Canada. You can get French or English keyboards. I had a french keyboard on a netbook, was the worst thing ever. After being so used to having the normal sized shift key, I consistantly made mistakes of putting in stupid characters instead of the shift working. :mad:

    I'd hate not to have a UK keyboard, can't be dealing with the tiny Enter key!

    They, clearly, are different region keyboards. The top one is US layout and the bottom one is European layout.

    A small enter and shift key is a deal breaker for me. I refuse to buy a laptop that Is like that.
