Lenovo W530 keyboard upgrade: ThinkLight -> Backlit

Dear Lenovo Support or Community,

 

I have a Lenovo W530 laptop with ThinkLight solution lighting over my keyboard from above the display... but I really hate it, especially after having a pleasure to use the backlit (/backlight) solution in the same model (also W530) at work.

 

Would it work (/be compatible) if I switched the ThinkLight keyboard to a Backlit one? If yes, where can I find it (preferably Qwerty design)?

Machine Type Model: 24415RG

 

Thank you in advance!

All T530 machines can take a backlit keyboard.  You just swap the keyboard.  

 

parts list:

I  suggest eBay for used keyboards or Lenovo for new ones.  T430, T530 and W530 all use thesame keyboard.

Just to add, all the 30-series machine have interchangeable keyboards:
X230, X230t, T430, T430s, T350, W530
/in case someone references this in the future/
Since you might be in non US country, make sure to reference the layout you want from the list. Then search. I have found Swedish 30-series keyboards in UK, and from Ali-express, in addition to eBay.
