    1. @adiwan Hold on, did they just take a hacksaw to a Thinkpad Laptop ?

      1. @drinkingpony Somewhat yeah. This is why it's great. It's basically the keyboard and a USB control board. It has even holes on the other side for draining liquid in case of a spill (like a Thinkpad laptop). I wish it just had a little bit more weight. It´s meant to be portable so I don't weight that against it.

        1. @adiwan Did you get it at the Lenovo Webshop ?

          1. @drinkingpony I wish. I got it off amazon from a 3rd party seller and it was the last one and it was not cheap (120€). I saw a similar model for 80€ but the order got cancelled because it was a warehouse error and wasn't actually available. My keyboard that I have has the model number 55Y9017 (site with model numbers for other language layouts http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/printableversion.wss?docURL=/common/ssi/rep_ca/0/877/ENUSZG09-0520/index.html ). The one I initially wanted was FRU57Y4655 but it cannot be found anywhere.

            1. @adiwan I found a FRU57Y4655 at centralpoint.be . According to them ( and I have yet to verify this ) that product was recalled by their supplier. They asked me if I knew anything about the battery.
