Keys from Ultrabook Keyboard Helix 1. gen interchangeable with Ultrabook Pro Helix 2. gen?

2017-01-22, 9:40 AM

I've just purchased a 2. gen Helix (20CG) with german Ultrabook Pro Keyboard Dock, very happy with the machine, but a bit annoyed with the German keyboard layout. I've got an older 1. gen Helix (3XXX) with Ultrabook Keyboard Dock (not Pro), are the keys interchangeable, so I can change the layout of the Pro Keyboard to my desired/preferred language (which is Danish)? Anyone tried this or have info's on this?

The key-size seems to be the same, but I don't know about the hinges or mechanics and how about backlight?

Buing a new keyboard dock is no option for me, the expence of this is no match to the annoyance with it...
