Yes.  Just change the keyboard.  No other parts required.

Rich,
Thank you for you quick response! Although Lenovo support didn't have a suggestion to this question, I now see two keyboards listed under the 20HB model search. Am I to assume that the Tachi BL KBD,US,LTN will just plug in without any mods? If so, that's great. Thanks for the posts. I will reply again when/if I decide to replace the board.

Yes.  The 2 FRUs are simply 2 diffferent suppliers.

Thank you Rich.  I've decided to go a different route and will be putting the keyboard change on hold, at least for now.

Cheers!
