Hi guys.

I'm about to buy a 12" ibook and was wondering if I would be able to get it with a foreign keyboard. I know the keyboard by heart and thought the keyboard in chinese/japanese/korean would look so cool. IS this possible with a US ibook? Plus, does the japanese/chinese/korean ibook even have a foreign keyboard?

I think all keyboards (of the same model at least) are technically identical regardles of what is painted on the keys. So if you press a key on a us keyboard and the key in the same location on japanese one, both should send same signal to OS.
