    Question Can I swap my MBP keyboard?
    Hi all,

    We are returning to the UK from New Zealand soon and I would like to know if I can swap the keyboard on my Retina MBP to the UK version.

    I am sure there are not many differences but the main one is the $ signs vs. the UK pound sign..

    Thanks in advance,
    Nick

    I believe you can use your NZ keyboard to make the sign by pressing the option + 3 keys. I do it all the time on my US keyboard. $$$$$

    Assuming some of the keys are different between an NZ and UK keyboard...yes the keyboards are changeable...you just need to find a source that sells the keyboard you need.

    Here's an example of what the part looks like (US keyboard in this example):
