WTB: x220 Keyboard palmrest (classic mod)

#1 Post by DaKKS » Thu Jul 23, 2020 3:02 pm

Looking for a "classic" keyboard and palm rest for my x230.

Interested in layouts: Nordic, Hungarian, US English, Hebrew. In that order.

Need it shipped to Sweden so preferably an EU seller if possible.

Plenty of palmrests on AliExpress: £7.67 without trackpad - you probably can replant your current one - and £13.14 with trackpad. Free delivery to UK. Ebay will have a hard time beating either.. Also from experience post is fine from China to UK in times of pandemic, I've received 10-15 shipments since it started and only one failed to arrive in the usual time-frame.. Much better than shipments to/from US I understand.

Good luck with the keyboard :) You sure know FRU-s right? And that it's same between T420/T520/W520/X220/X220t? This pointing here? Columns being Alps/Chikony/NMB = bad/good/best(but never seen one on sale). I'm seeing FRU-s from 2nd column on ebay periodically.. Could even try AliExpress too..

Or else maybe somebody offers one here. Unfortunately haven't seen any of these cheap :(
X220, 2 *T520

And the T410/T510/W510 also use the same KBs as the xx20 series!
Further distinction (under the keys):
NMB = red pads
ALPS = white pads
Chicony = grey pads
Still NOT a great day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff).
Ireland is on FULL lockdown until Easter 2021!
