Is keyboard in Edge E530 as same as in Edge E540?

Hi, I have a question for you guys. Is keyboard from Lenovo Edge E530 the same one as is in Edge E540? Will it fit properly and work properly on E540?

from memory they are different, and not cross compatible.

Betreff: Is keyboard in Edge E530 as same as in Edge E540?

Yes, Jin is absolutely right. They are different in several aspects:

 

- Different mounting: The  new keyboard of the E540 is mounted like all other new 14"  and 15" new ThinkPad-keyboard (since it is the same as T540p/L540). It is screwed down from top and has a shifting keyboard-frame

 

- Different form: Due to the absence of the TrackPoint-buttons, the E540 keyboard has a slightly different form, since the TrackPoint button were attatched to the keyboard with the E530. The E530 keyboard won´t fit into the E540 chassis

 

- Minor differences: Glossy plastic key-frame, red-colored Fn-function.

One more difference: the keyboard of the E530 is much more better. The one of E540 is cheap and rickety Smiley Sad
