X1C6: Not all keyboards are the same

Long story short. I had Lenovo replace my top case because the left click button wasn't working. Yes, they replaced the entire top case including keyboard and pointer. They did not replace the trackpad though. 

 

So the keyboard that originally came with my laptop which was built in Nov 2018, was a lot stiffer. I was getting a lot of mistype due to me not applying enough pressure. This replacement keyboard though, oh my, it's perfect! The strokes are a lot softer and my typing accuracy went way up. 

 

If you do not like your keyboard for some reason, you should maybe goto a Costco and bring your laptop to do a compare. I think they are not using the same supplier for some of these keyboards. I like my replacement one a lot more than the original one that came with the laptop.

All models have multiple suppliers for keyboards and other parts, like LCDs, SSDs, etc.  Some people prefer one over another; some like the other one, and some see no difference.

Ahh nice to know. Yes it is a matter of preference and I'm glad I got one that fits me better now. I was seriously hating the old keyboard. Felt like it was gym day for fingers
