The business units start up in lowercase. The number symbols and punctuation on the main keyboard row shift to what you normally get on a Commodore 64, so there are some graphic symbols you cannot type (you have to get creative to get them in your listings without using chr$()). There is added a REPEAT key, and a TAB key (so I assume the editor may be modified with tab stops) On the 8000 there is also an ESC key but not on the 2000/3000B series. Even though I have a B series, I really haven't used it much as I prefer the N keyboards more...
