T42 Keyboard options



I have a T42 15" screen model (2373) but it has a french keyboard. Would like to change it to the US standard. Looking at Ebay and noticed some sellers are listing a keyboard for the 14"model and a different one for the 15". Is there a different keyboard for the 15" model vs. the 14" model? Want to avoid buying the keyboard and then realizing it's too small for my particular model.


Any help would be appreciated.

Re: T42 Keyboard options

Welcome to the forum!

The keyboards are different indeed, the number of screws as well as their location do not match. Your 15" unit calls for a keyboard with 3 screws.

Hope this helps.
