Yes it can. You have to disassemble the computer and remove the logic board though.

Right Jim +. You really have to take everything apart (the HDD, battery and optical drive too) and than it's 49 tiny screws (and two more for the power switch) to get the keyboard out. But it's fun and possible.


does that mean I can use a backlit keyboard for my macbook? I read that 15% of the MB466 models can't support the backlit feature
