broken keyboard -> transplant all organs into an thinkpad?
hi all,

after some keys lost working and finally a died space bar too, i am looking for a solution. the pinebook 11" bottom is not available, so i am thinking about using an alternative keyboard.

so my question is: does anyone know that keyboard connector? are there directly alternative keyboards, even if i have to build a new housing from scratch?

or do i have to replace all the stuff into another device and put on a usb keyboard?

(btw i found a guy who converted a thinkpad keyboard into an usb one...)

any thoughts?
just looked at the pictures of the connector of the olimex laptop, which is verrry familiar.

anyone tried, if this keyboard would just work with the pinebook-board? Wink
