New AW 17(2015) keyboard replace?

Im getting the new Alienware 17, its gonna ship to me around Feb 18

I kind of like the old Alienware 17 M17x keyboard.

Does it worth the hassle to buy an old model keyboard and replace it, better yet...

is it even viable to do? are both of the model have the same outline?

When dell replaced my m17xr4 with a new aw17 I was pissed because I hated the new keyboard.... then I used it. While I still like the keycaps from the old keyboards, the feel of the new keyboard is 10 times better than the old.
