My keyboard has a couple of keys that aren't working, and I am looking to purchase a replacement. I saw an ad on a local website for a Macbook pro Keyboard for sale. It's a 2008 Macbook pro but it looks exactly like my 2007 Macbook Pro. Are the keyboards the same? Will it fit into mine?

* On closer inspection, I do notice my retunr key on the right hand side is long key and the 2008 one seems to be more like a wide key? Either way, I don't mind if the keyboard layout is different, as long as it works in my Macbook pro 2007? Can anyone confirm if it will? Thanks.

The keyboards are different in layout, so chances of it not being compatible are likely.
I would continue searching until I found a 2007 keyboard, better be safe than sorry.
