Hi,

I live in France and am buying a new Macbook but don't know whether to get a French or English keyboard. I work in both languages and want to be able to type French accents easily (without hitting a combination of keys every time) but the French keyboard requires you to hit Shift every time you want to type a numeral or a period. Is there any way round this? I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks,
David

Get one internal, the other external?

Personally I find that whatever keyboard I'm using, you get so used to typing blind after a while it doesn't really make a difference:

You can switch keyboard layouts with a keyboard shortcut, so it's more or less instant...
