    Specs:
    Powerbook 17" 1.5GHz, 2GB, 160GB Momentus; iMac 24" 3.06GHz, 2GB; iPhone 2.5G 8GB; iPod 5G 60GB
    On the 17" it's F8 to turn it on and off, then F9 and F10 to turn it up and down. However, it'll only work in the dark.

    When did you order it?
    I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

    All of the powerbooks have the buttons, but just because they have the buttons doesn't mean you have the backlit keyboard
