I need a new eject key for my PB12. The people on eBay insist they are all the same, but I have my doubts...especially for the keys on the edges, they just SEEM shorter. Maybe it's an optical illusion

Can anyone confirm that these keys on the edge (esp my eject key) are in fact the same or different?

The keyboards on all of the m

The keyboards on all of the models are the same, except for the backlighting on the 15" and 17" models. You won't encounter any problems swapping key caps. (Don't get hopeful about keyboard backlighting on 12" powerbooks, anyone, because they don't have ambient light sensors in the case.)

Can anyone tell me the dimens

Can anyone tell me the dimensions of the complete keyboard assembly, and/or that in a 12" iBook?
