Keyboard options

#1 Post by Boxxer » Mon Dec 15, 2014 12:10 pm


Thinking about changing to a Yoga I stumbled upon an important question: since I can't seem to get one at a decent price here in Portugal and I thought about ordering one from abroad, I'll certainly end up with a foreign keyboard layout.
Should I need a portuguese layout, is it possible to switch keyboards on this? Or do you guys know of an alternative and effective solution? Like key stickers, if they're not too flimsy or distasteful, maybe?

Yoga keyboards can be replaced (available for many languages).
Never tried KB-stickers.

Check that you get a keyboard for the right size and model (Standard, 11e or 14).

Thanks RealBlackStuff, I'll look into it. Are those the only form factors they come in?

Boxxer, just carefully get the FRU number for the particular keyboard module you need, and use it when shopping.

So, get the FRU listing from Lenovo's web site, of *exactly your laptop model*.

The FRU is the universal component identifier with Lenovo, so it doesn't matter how many other models of whatever they manufacture, all you care about is you get exactly the FRU you're asking for.
