Flex 4 - Arrow Key is where Shift Key Should Be

I just got this laptop and everything is great EXCEPT the fact that the up arrow key is where the right shift key normally is on every other computer I have ever used in my life.  This is honestly causing me a huge headache because I type very fast and without thinking or looking and every time I go to do an uppercase letter and reach for the shift key, I hit the arrow key instead.

 

I honestly don't know why anyone would build a keyboard that is different than others but I am trying to figure out how to work with this without slowing down my typing, which is honestly driving me insane.

 

What can I do here other than continue to make typos?  I hooked up an external keyboard for the shorterm but that doesn't really help me when I'm on a plane or travelling for work.  I paid a lot for this computer and really need to be able to use it properly.
