I recently got ahold of a MacBook – the slightly overpriced black version – and, since I am frequent user of Exposé, immediately noticed a weird defect. The function keys (F8-F10) are used on the MacBook Pro to regulate the keyboard background light, but since this feature is absent from the MacBook, I assumed that pressing F9 would result in all windows showing up. It did not. However, if I press the fn key, the result is as expected: Exposé does its magic.

So, my question to whom it concerns is: does everyone experience this problem? The keyboard seems to be, incorrectly, mapped as a MBP keyboard.

An additional detail: I live in Sweden and hence, the MacBook has a Swedish keyboard layout. It would be interesting to know if all MacBooks behave like this or just the Swedish versions of them. I have not had the chance to test with another MacBook, since we (the university where I work as a Mac support technician, among other things) have only bought one, so far.

Thanks in advance!
