Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum. I recently got myself a Powerbook G4 (still in the mail) and while researching notebooks one thing I keep wondering is with the keyboards. I'll use titanium Powerbook keyboards for examples

This one is a normal keyboard

This one has a weird return key.

I still see new notebooks today with both regular and "weird" keyboards mixed together. Anyone explain the weird keyboard? And is still available today? Also, my Powerbook has a regular keyboard.
QUOTE Thanks

The aluminum keyboard that Apple sells is of the newer type. Actually they sell two or three different kinds: Full with numeric keypad and without - wired ($49.00) and the smaller wireless without the numeric keypad. See this LINK.

Your keyboard is of the older type which has the Apple symbol on the command key.

Regards.

OK, but my question was about the return key, why did they sell 2 different kinds at the same time?

The second keyboard looks like it's a non-US keyboard. Apple definitely makes different keyboard layouts for different countries.
