X200 - ordering a German Keyboard in the US

Hello fellow Thinkpad users, I bought a X200  two months ago, and since then I have tried to find a german keyboard for it. I know the part numbers (42T3740 and 42T3674, the last one is NMB I think...), but the IBM-parts people, as well as the Lenovo support told me, that they won't be able to ship a german keyboard in the US. Since I still have to write a lot of stuff in german, just keeping the US keyboard is no option for me. Do some of you know what I can do about the problem, e.g. where to order a german keyboard? Thank you very much, and please excuse my english :smileyhappy:

Try ordering through the German Lenovo/IBM parts site?
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

welcome to the forum!


since you have the part numbers, call the IBM maintenance parts department directly at 800-388-7080 (options 2:1:1) and have them order the keyboard for you.   i've ordered over a dozen japanese layout keyboards through the parts department over the years and would think finding a german keyboard would be easier.
