    According to the fact sheet, the keyboard is backlit.

    I used to think having back-lit keyboards was just a gimmick. On my old Dell laptop i never had it. but when you working in the dark, having that back light is fantastic. Even if it was an optional extra $20 for it. I would definitely pay. Thanks for the confirmation olyar15!

    There are two keyboards that I know of, one is a very cool ergonomic design. I don't know if either is backlit however. Would like to though.

    EDIT: Just read the previous posts, Seems like it isn't. Maybe Microsoft should change that fact-sheet then..

    According to the fact sheet provided by 'olyar15'. It very definitely has a backlit keyboard.
    Why do you say its not? The fact sheet looks legitimate.

    You guys are killing me. Read the whole thread. I'm the original poster. I have the keyboard and have said it over and over here. The keyboard is not backlit.

    What Microsoft buoyantly means by "backlit" is that the Caps, Fn, ScrLk and NumLk keys have an LED indicating when their functions are locked:
