How can I order the British layout keyboard?
It defaults to German when you add the British version to the shopping cart. This is even if you select the 'British' keyboard from the main shopping page showing all the keyboards. Also is this a PROPER British keyboard with SHIFT+2 = " and not @?

Hi, I have been having the exact same problem and it's driving me mad!! I found a rather lengthly way around it though:
1. Select a Mac mini as though you wish to purchase it.
2. You arrive at the configure your Mac mini page. Scroll down to "Apple Keyboard" and it allows you to select a British keyboard.
3. Click "Add to Basket" on the right hand side
4. When it displays the items in your basket, simply remove the Mac mini. You are left with the British keyboard in your cart.
A bit of a pain, I know, but I have been struggling with this for almost an hour so it seems the easiest (albeit only) solution at the moment.

I've been trying to do the same thing... A lengthy chat with an online representative yielded nothing. As for the key placement, the @ is indeed above the 2 key, while " is above the ' key.
(IMO, this is a more logical placement, all the symbols are above numbers, while punctuation is to the right)

Is there available an Apple keyboard with a UK layout whereas the @ key and numeric keys are at the right hand end of the keyboard?
