    Circles on #1, #6, up and down arrows on keyboard dock?

    Do the circles have any meaning or function on the #1, #6, Up and down keys on the keyboard dock?

    No, they apparently were designed to make the keyboard more visible in low light.

    Sorry, but that makes no sense. Why just one and six? Is that just a theory or do you have a link?

    I have an Asus computer - U46 series. They have the circles on 1 and 6 because they change certain settings when you hold function and press them. Maybe asus used the same design for the tablet dock? http://www.amazon.com/U46SV-DH51-14-...8892356&sr=8-1

    And the home key has an etched circle arount the house icon. Why not just use a painted circle on the key? And does the biue Fn button actual affect any key other than the directional keys?

    FOUND ONLINE:

    There’s not really a specific reason function wise. However,
    it’s just easier for people to type when they spot the two dots. It’s
    just something similar to like there’s usually a bump on the numbers on
    your cell phone or on “F and J” on the computer keyboard."

    So, in low-light conditions...the 1 and 6 keys serve to give a visual clue where the beginning and middle of the numeric keys are.
