Can anyone tell me if the layout on a UK model keyboard is any differant to that of the same keyboard for the USA market.
The key board in question is the Logitech Internet Navigator SE.
They appear to be cheaper in the US than over here.

I am not sure, but generally there are differences; the positioning of the # and " keys often differ, but you have the option of telling the machine that it is a UK keyboard or just use the other key.

Reference to the pricing structure of the Logitech, this is the usual sore point that we can purchase the same product or similar cheaper from the USA. When shipping and any levies are paid the price is sometimes very little different. Remember also that the warranty provided may have different terms and conditions.

I'll not incur any shipping etc. as I'm going over to the US on holiday over xmas.
As usual what we pay in £'s the US price is $'s so they are a lot cheaper.
I'll do a bit more research.
Thanks for your help.

Newuser2 - just be careful taking it back home through customs - you could become liable.

Diodorus Siculus. The limit for bringing goods into the UK from the US is from memory £140ish so I'll be OK.
In fact last time I brought a petrol powered leaf blower in. Cost in the US $99 price in UK £200. Rip off Britain or what.
