Did L470 ever come with that option?  I see that as an option for L480 but I dont see it for L470 and it doesnt show as option on psref either.

Also dont see it on parts lookup either.  Checked keyboards internal on left side.

No backlit keyboads are listed in the parts list.  My guess is that it doesn't have the circuitry and BIOS support needed.

Would also like to upgrade my Keyboard to a backlit one, as i use it alot at night.

 

Any one with knowledge here that know if the T470S keyboard with Backlight would fit and work in an L470 laptop?
