The keyboard for the N500 is the same as that for the N200 [type 0769].

Hi there.

Do be VERY careful about acquiring/using a keyboard from a different system.  You absolutely MUST look up the parts description for each machine and identify the keyboard FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) number.

If they are identical then.... ok... no problem!

If they are DIFFERENT then..... DON'T DO IT! They may look identical but they will have something... somewhere.... different!!!! It may be just a screw hole in a different place but it might also be a completely different ribbon cable configuration!!

 

The C100 keyboard FRU list (different languages) is at

 while the N500 list is at

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70943

I see the US English FRU is 42T3403 for C100 but 34T7417 for the N500! QED....don't do it! Not compatible!
