Has anyone ever done a lighted keyboard for the mac?
Yes and Yes.
What was the mac type and how hard was it to do?
lots of laptops have been done ....
The first one was one of those Apple Pro Keyboards with the transparent black keys. Riscx visits the forums here on occassion - I think he posted some comments on the keyboard in the old forums. He also says its a PITA in the writeup.
The iBook mod has a writeup here No comments on how hard it is but good description of what he did.
My new 17" PowerBook G4 comes with a backlit keyboard. Although i wish my 1999 G3 PowerBook had this. When i first got the 17" i thought the bacvklit keyboard was silly, but i use it so often, i don't know how i lived without it. I really miss it when im using my other machines.
