Compatible keyboard models for M1437G? Lifebook equivalent?  Topic is solved

Postby kermujian » Thu Mar 13, 2008 4:01 pm

I've inherited and resurrected an M1437G that had been checked in soft luggage on a trans-atlantic flight. That was a bad choice, but has worked out well for me. My problem is that I can't retrain my fingers from the US QWERTY to the DE QWERTZ. It's been remapped as a std US keyboard, but I'm still left hunting for the special characters.

These keyboards don't appear to be available in the US, and the dollar makes them unattainable in Europe. Is there a Fujitsu Lifebook product line that corresponds to the European M series? A search of vendor docs and eBay images has not yielded results.

TIA

Ordered the following from eBay:
Fujitsu Amilo D7830 D7850 D6820 D6830 keyboard US

It is a drop-in replacement. Works find, but there is no corresponding receiver for the keyboard lock screw. It is just snapped in. Feels a little flimsy, but the original felt a little flimsy, too.
