Pinebook Pro replacement keyboards/parts
#1
*
 Just wondering 'when' we will be able to purchase replacement keyboards for our Pinebook Pro's  ?

As for substituting an ISO for an ANSI  or a ANSI for an ISO,  or simply because something broke on your original keyboard  ?

Also perhaps replacement or upgrade motherboards as the PBP matures.....

What if you happen to damage your screen  ?

I am hoping to see some replacement parts on the store website.

    Thanks  !

(Maybe some cool accessories like skins or cases as well)

While no specifics about what will be required, Luke has stated that conversion kits will be made available (hopefully) after all the PBPs ship out.

I think you may have to replace the 'Whole Palmrest' as you must on the original Pinebook, and a few others.

just looking at it i think you are correct keys rely on the palm rest access holes...the enter key etc won't fit Sad

I do not know how difficult it is to replace individual key caps. I'd be happy with a few stickers just so the keyboard is labeled WYSIWYG.

I am guessing a good number of 2019 purchasers bought the Pro inspite of the ISO keyboards mostly to support the project but would now really appreciate being able to swap in an ANSI keyboard.  I know I would.  Hope the ANSI will be available soon.

Last i recall Luke talking on parts to swap out ISO for ANSI, he added that the parts/kit would not be available until after the ANSI PBPs were shipped. I think their availability will be based on ANSI units sold and parts remaining.

      Note :
    The plastic trim around the screen is referred to as the 'bezel',  the plastic around the keyboard is called the 'palmrest'.
