Newer Apple keyboards have the Mission Control and Launchpad features linked to the F3 and F4 keys.
Mac OS X Lion is now available and so are a lot of corresponding software updates — but that's not all! Apparently Apple is shipping out keyboards redesigned specifically for Lion.
As you can see by the photo above, Apple has decided to ditch the old Expose and Dashboard shortcut buttons and replace them with Mission Control and Launchpad keys. (A snapshot of an older Apple keyboard is below for comparison.)

The updated keyboards can be found on the new MacBook Air models as well as on standalone keyboards being shipped out at this point.
