Hi guys,

just a quick question:

I'm in New Zealand right now and have found an Alienware Notebook on Trademe (= eBay for Kiwis). Unfortunately, it has got an English keyboard layout, but I am German. Is there any way to get German switches online, so I can reassemble the keyboard the way I'm used to it?

Best~

Just find the Dell part number for the German keyboard and buy it. It's not extremely difficult to swap. Check ebay for one. Won't you have to install the German version of Windows too?

Ah, searching for the part number, that's indeed a useful tip, thanks a lot!

Software-wise, I think it's not a big deal. I have a German Windows version with me, where I can switch between DE and EN keyboard layout - you can't do that with an English Windows version?

I'd get on dell chat to get the part #.
You could also ask someone that has that keyboard to get the part number off the back of it.
