I'm interested in purchasing the Thinkpad T520 Notebook. Before I purchase I have two questions.
1. In some pictures I see that the T520 has a default size (large) enter/return key. In some other photos the key is much smaller, it has only the size of the Shift key. Which is it? Does it have a large enter key, or not?
2. The Thinkpad Notebooks have the non standard FN CTRL key layout (instead of CTRL FN). I've heard that some Thinkpad Notebooks have an option in the BIOS to swap FN and CTRL. Is this the case for the T520?
Thanks in advance!

1. US T520 keyboard looks like this: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/products/professional-grade/thinkpad/t-series/index.html. Different locales other than US might have slightly different layout.
2. T520 definitely has the BIOS option to swap FN and CTRL in case you are used to Dell or HP keyboard.

To clarify. I will be buying the Notebook in Germany. So my question is if the German layout has the larger Enter key, as shown here:

Hi Outertech and welcome to the forum!
As far as I know the inverted L shaped Enter key is only found on European models (and perhaps Japanese too), if you order it from a retailer in Germany, then it would come with the same layout you've pasted a picture of.
Hope this helps.

The German keyboard has the big enter key and yes Fn Strg is the layout order for those two keys, not Strg Fn.
