How does this differ from the FB167B/A, other than the number of batteries it takes?
The keyboard layout looks different, but the images are too small

This keyboard is exactly the same (as said by the other answer) except for 2 things... Yes it now only needs 2 batteries rather than an odd 3: And the time it lasts on these 2 batteries compared to the 3 battery version is much, much better!
I was using the 3 battery k/b that came with my Mac Pro and finding the batteries didn't last that long... After buying the new Magic mouse I decided to put the Mac Pro's supplied Mighty Mouse and it's 3 battery k/b back in their original packaging which I keep in the Mac Pro's original box in the attic. That way when/if I ever sell the Mac Pro it will be worth more!
That extra used-sell value persuaded me to buy the new 2 battery k/b as I'd read it was more efficient than it's predecessor. It is! I bought the new k/b from the Bath Apple Store within 2 minutes of it opening (just to be the first to make a purchase at a brand new store! :-)) on 27th March 2010 and have used it a lot. Today, 2nd May 2010 the battery level still reads 100%!
Hope this helps, darth.
