ThinkPad P51 Swapping Keyboards

Hello Everyone,


I am about to purchase a P51 and I have a question regarding the keyboard. There are two options, and I would prefer the non-backlit as the texture and curved keys are more my taste. If I wanted to change to a backlit setting for any reason, could I simply order the part number and swap it out in the future? Or is it set in stone?
