Ordering the X1 Carbon with a non-US keyboard?

I live in California, but I'm a writer that just needs a DANISH keyboard. How do I order the new X1 Carbon with that option? Ordering from the DK version of Lenovo is simply more expensive. While Apple has this option in the configuration, I can't stand a life without the trackpoint, so X1 Carbon it is.

Hello

Purchase the laptop with US keyboard layout and replace the keyboard by one with Danish layout or apply Danish symbols by laser engraving, it's very easy and cheaply.

..........Where do I buy a compatible Danish keyboard for the 2017 X1 Carbon? Wouldn't the warrantly cancel out if I do my own tinkering?

The best place is an official IBM/Lenovo store
http://www.ibm.com/shop/dk/parts (for Denmark).

But the price will not please.

The same kb part with Danish layout isn't available in the US store

Presently the parts for newest laptops aren't available in the aftermarket (amazon, ebay, ali...)
