Hi, can anyone tell me which Macbooks come with a backlit keyboard? I heard that certain lower-end models don't have it, so which ones do? Does the Macbook Air have it, or only the Macbook Pro?

The term "MacBooks" is not a "catch all" phrase for all Macintosh laptops.

Apple sells/sold three model lines of laptop computers:

- MacBooks
- MacBook Pros
- MacBook Air

The MacBook line of laptops was recently discontinued.

This brings use to the question...are you talking new or used Macintosh laptops...since Apple has been selling laptops (with Intel cpu's) with backlit keyboards since April, 2006...and was selling Powerbook G4's with backlit keyboards since January, 2003. Powerbooks are now discontinued.

If we are talking new computers...all currently selling NEW Apple laptops have a backlit keyboard (MacBook Pros & MacBook Air's).

I'm looking at new Macbooks, so all of them have the backlit keyboard? I read somewhere that the lower-end models didn't have it, but I guess that was outdated...
Thanks for help!

Sorry, my answer was to the "Do the Airs have it".

The Pros have one too, as Nick said.

No you're not!

Like I mentioned in my previous post...Apple no longer sells new "MacBooks"...just MacBook Pros & MacBook Air's.

And like I also mentioned previously...ALL new laptops/notebooks that Apple sells have backlit keyboards!
