    Do you think the notebooks will get the new keyboards with dedicated keys for Time Machine, playback, etc, like the new iMacs?

    Perhaps in the near future... But i dont think we need a key for time machine... Thats just silly.

    I don't think that there was a dedicated button for time machine. Anyway, it's just the same now, only the images are not printed onto the keys.

    I think F4 on the new keyboards is for Time Machine, correct me if I'm wrong though.

    Yeah, I'm hoping they will update the Macbook and MBP keyboards as well, since I'd like to have the dedicated media keys.

    It's defenitely feasible, as the Macbooks should (eventually) be making the jump to the SR platform in the near future, so those will be updated, and all it really takes is a little bit of paint for Apple to slap on the MBP keyboards.

    I'm guessing that by October the keyboards will be updated, along with a Spaces key, mapped to F4 or something like that.

    I can't see why some of these functions wouldn't make their way to the portables.

    I would surely hope not. I can't stand the new keyboard.
