No. That's the only disappointment I have with Apple's laptops.

Only some older models (2007) of the Macbook Pro have a numeric keyboard built into some of the keys (IOPKL etc) when you press "Num Lock".

No, they don't. But it's not completely arbitrary; the reason Apple laptops don't have a numeric keypad is because it makes the typing position off-center, which is bad ergonomically for your wrists. And the trackpad would have to be moved over, which would hurt the symmetrical design.
