Hi everyone,

I'm on the verge of buying a MacBook pro, after having been a Unix/Linux user for ages. I live in the Netherlands, but the Dutch keyboard supplied with the Macbook Pro seems rather horrible to me: the enter key is way too small, the left shift key is almost gone, and the ~ is in the wrong place. The online Dutch Apple store does give the option of buying one's Macbook with the 'International English' keyboard, but nobody at any Apple store I visited or at the presales support line from Apple can tell me just what that keyboard is like. So, if anyone has that keyboard - could you please tell me what the enter key and shift keys are like, where they've put the ~ etc.? A picture would be even more appreciated.

Regards, Paul Boven.

Hi pulse-8,

Thanks for the quick reply and the picture, but that's not a MacBook Pro, so it doesn't tell me much about what the MacBook Pro International English keyboard would look like.
