The new MacBook Pro models that were released today include some significant changes to the keyboard. Here's an overview of the changes:
* Combination "Media and Function" keys on the top row. Includes a picture of what the media functions do.
* The word "command" is now present on the cmd keys
* Removal of the num lock key
* Removal of numbers that were on the right side letters (u,i,o,p,j,k,l,m)
* Removal of arithmetic symbols from keys on the right side of the keyboard
* Replaced small 'enter' key on the right with a second 'option' key on the bottom row (two keys to the right of the space bar)
The following picture shows the keyboard change on the Early 2008 MacBook Pro models:
