From the DF Archive: Full Metal Jacket

Yours truly, reviewing my then-new 15-inch PowerBook in 2005:

The other major feature of the 15-inch (and 17-inch) PowerBook keyboard is that it offers illumination, which illumination can be triggered automatically by ambient light sensors located under the speaker grille. The sensor works great, and the illumination is genuinely handy in low-light situations. I expect this feature to eventually find its way into every Apple laptop.

We’re there.
