The difference between a backlit keyboard and a regular keyboard is that backlit keyboards, are able to be used in pitch darkness because it lights up from behind the keys. On regular keyboards the characters attributed to each key are simply printed on and do not light up. This makes backlit keyboards the ultimate in versatility.
