A1200 keyboard, US format
« on: June 12, 2016, 05:05:30 PM »
Can someone show me what a US format A1200 keyboard looks like via a photo?  My 1200 (commodore made version) is a UK/PAL machine, and, there is one blank key on the bottom left to the immediate right of the LEFT SHIFT key, and, another blank one to the immediate left of the enter key.  Both seem to be non functional.   I was thinking of picking up a US format keyboard if it is any different, and, more like my A500's keyboard.

AFAIK all A1200's had the "extra" keys.  They're for localization and are used by some other countries.  Tried a google image search and was striking out on finding anything that looks like an A500 keyboard (with the wide enter key).  Some other obvious differences would be that a North American keyboard would have a "#" above the 3 instead of a "£" symbol, etc.
