1.) Does the P70 and/or P50 (or the bios) support Keymapping? Because there are some keys on my T40 (esp. the forward and back keys--the ones that sit with the arrow keys--I love those little things) that I use all. the. time. and can't really see myself living without. I've even caught myself a time or fifty looking for those keys on the keyboards at our Vista or Win7 towers (and other PCs--towers and laptops). I'd love to map them if possible (changing it to FN+that key for Page-up or whatever).
( 1a.) Can Keymappers even assign FN key combos?)

I use KeyTweak 2.3.0 to put the Ctrl-Shift-Alt keys back in the original order of the old days before IBM made computer keyboards mimic typewriter keyboards with the Capslock key next to the A. It will remap function keys, though I have not done that. It is working fine on Windows 10. The article below refers to Sharpkeys and says it will do multiple keystrokes mapped to a single key which could be handy.

Wow! As a twenty-something, the first PC I ever used was a Gateway Pentium Pro running Win95. (I also have vague memories of playing a game on my grandpa's Atari. It had two monitors--one was black and white, and the other was color. Depending on the program that you wanted to run, you would swap which monitor you plugged into the keyboard/computer peice. He still has it, and it runs, but I never take the time to use it.)
The first laptop I remember seeing was my dad's work-provided T40.

I actually had one of the very early laptops. Probably about 1987-88. It was a Kaypro 2000. Back when it was 8086 processors (IIRC). Single 3.5" floppy. Monochrome LCD screen - no backlight. It was amazing at the time!

I can see that that would have been a big deal back then.
Was that the one with the function keys on the side and control next to the "A"? If not, would you please tell me what laptop that was on?
BTW, FWIW, my dad corrected me. He had had a Dell Latitude (model unknown) prior to his company going to IBM/Lenovo. He's since been upgraded to a T42p, T60?, T420s, and is currently on a T430s. (and he misses his thinklight!)

Boy, I can't recall the precise layout of that keyboard after all these years. They may have been on the top since that keyboard was quite compact. The keyboards with function keys on the left were desktop keyboards. Here's a typical example:
And, now that I revisit what they looked like, I can see there were duplicated function keys - top and left.
