By the way, in case you are currious about which one of the three to get, whether ALPS, Chicony, or NMB, the difference between ALPS, Chicony, and NMB keyboards is very little, and it is more about personal preference. Here you have two links to threads where people discuss pros and cons of ALPS, Chicony, and NMB.
My personal experience Chicony - firmer but clicks more that the others. I would probably prefer ALPS over NMB.

Btw, one more thread on comparing keyboards from the three manufacturers:

I have a question on this same subject.
As I am going to ex-change the entire keyboard to the Spanish version from a Z60t to a T61 thinkpad, I wan to be sure that the T61 can be re-configured so that each Spanish letters and simbols shown on each key will correspond to the one to be typed.

Why would you need a Spanish keyboard for? I have been typing in English and Spanish all the time since Windows 3.1 came out with my English keyboard. 99% of the people don't know this, but the secret is not to install Spanish keyboard layout, just select "US International" keyboard layout, which will allow you to type áéíóúñüÁÉÍÓÚÑÜ¿¡ characters using the ['] and [~] as prefix for those. For [¿] and [¡] use Ctrl+Alt+? and Ctrl+Alt+! This layout also supports French typing.
Hope this helps.
Why should you use an English keyboard?
It's a matter of feeling much more comfortable while typing.
There are a lot of Spanish speaking people in the US, much more than in Spain, it would be profitable for any company to offer models with the Spanish keyboard.
Some people suggest to DIY and change the keys. You will loose your guarantee and maybe break the laptop.
