Which key is omitted from US keyboards?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Can anyone tell me which is the key that is absent from the US keyboards compared to International ones?

    i think the keyset differs based on language. like, i think, russians (and other cyrillic writers) have a diff keyboard. i may be completely wrong though. for places like spain or latin america, i think the accents are probably easier to get to. again, i may be wrong.

    Sorry, I meant to say the difference between the US english and international english versions.

    I have had a look at the developer notes and I think that the tilde key (~) is the one that is absent. Can anyone in the US confirm this?

    I have a tilde key. Here are some pictures:

    Click for bigger versions. Unfortunately, I had to scale the pics to 640 pixels wide to conform to forum guidelines, but if you click on 'em they're large enough to see clearly. Hope this helps.
