 Post subject: Want new chicklet style keyboard on MBP 15" - Possible?

The following is my question - and dilemma. First, the specs: I have a MacBook Pro 2.4 15" [SantaRosa] which is about a year + a few months old. It works fine. What I want is this: I want to replace the keyboard (which has silver keys, old style) with the NEW chicklet type keyboard that is now the standard keyboard.

As a writer, this keyboard drives me nuts. So I use the new Apple wireless keyboard (aluminum) which is TOTALLY SWEET. It's fine when I'm at my desk, but a lot of the time I'm elsewhere or traveling. And I really would like that type of keyboard on my MBP. Is it possible?

I realize it isn't a standard swap but if it is at all possible even with modification, I want to do it (or have it done). I have considered buying another laptop, just for the improved keyboard, I hope it isn't necessary.

Is it possible to have the newer type keyboard on my older style MacBook Pro?

Thanks.

I got some information elsewhere and it is as I had wondered... it's just not going to happen. The new keyboard wouldn't be practical to get it to fit my MBP (and get it to work properly). So I'll get a small laptop just for writing... with a sweet keyboard.

Thanks anyway.

All the best. :)

There isn't a modification for that as far as I've seen.
