The UK keyboard is easier to use if youre in the UK. I have a US laptop and some of the keys are different to whats shown on the keyboard you get used to it but if you have the option to order a new Mac with the UK keyboard then you should

Good luck to you too finding what you are looking for!
not sure if this is worth a look:

do you know what the main differences are?

I was considering the refurb route initially as that's about $300 less than the new option (although still the same warranty etc).

I think theres only 3 or 4 keys different on my US keyboard. Things like the @ # and are mixed up but you soon get used to which keys to press to get those symbols

I will check mine tonight for you and let you know what the different keys are (I'm at work now - although you might be able to google it!) as both mine have the US keyboard lay out. For me it wasn't an issue as although the physical keys might say one thing, I have it set up as the UK version when it is actually pressed. So I can't remember what's what but say the number 3 which we have a on, shows actually it's a # on the physical keyboard, when I press it, it types a not what is displayed. However if you don't use keyboards a lot then it could get confusing - I know where all the keys are from muscle memory and typing on them on a daily basis for work for 20 years so it's not an issue for me personally!

the main thing (for me) is a larger enter key. the single height one on US keyboards does my head in

saying that, i have a couple of devices with US keyboards, and i don't really have much of an issue with them. but given the choice of a uk keyboard over a US one (ie ordering from the apple site rather than the store) i would go for the uk keyboard.

but if somewhere like macmall was doing an offer on a laptop and it ended up a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than buying from the apple site, i would choose the US keyboard!

None actually instock only "ordered on request" apparently someone emailed them and they confirmed it was a miss price and they wouldn't be honored at that price - not sure it's worth ordering (as can still order at the cheap price!) if i'm just going to have to wait an age for a refund! Thanks for the link though
