I'm about to buy it bundled with the iMac, I'd like the buy the French Keyboard, but is it an AZERTY or a QWERTY keyboard?

Recently moved in from France and I can't get used to the QWERTY keyboards and the lack of accent keys is a bummer too. I noticed Apple is offering the option of changing the keyboard language (English/French/Spanish/Japanese) when buying a Mac, but is the offered french keyboard an AZERTY (European French) keyboard or a QWERTY (Quebec, Canada) keyboard?

Thanks in advance.

    if you but it form the French apple store, AZERTY, from the canadian apple store QWERTY.
    apple makes both French QWERTY as well as AZERTY keyboards.
    the QWERTY version is displayed as "French Canadian" the AZERTY just as "French"
