I want to buy a couple parts for my R500 laptop. The two rubber feet on the bottom of the laptop fell off and the keyboard is starting to get nasty feeling as the finish strips off. I have no idea where to look for the rubber feet. I know you used to be able to buy the keyboard off of Lenovo's Parts and Accessories section, but since they discontinued the R series they have disapeared. Where can I buy these parts?

There's a Lenovo-authorized repair shop & parts warehouse in Akron OH that I have bought many new parts from. They still advertise the 42T4066 replacement KB (new). See one of their websites here. They offer a great variety of new parts. I believe I just bought the last new R500 KB available on eBay the other day for a bit less than they wanted. I have literally worn out 3 previous keyboards on my R500 which I bought in Sept. 2006. I really type a lot. I would not buy used or refurbished, since I think laptop keyboards don't hold up well to hard service.
