Just a thought.
Keep on thinking, matey.
Sorry if I'm brief but my working laptops keyboard just partially died on me.... and the relaplacement didn't get delivered .... and "onboard" really sucks.
That's really unfortunate (about your keyboard). I hope the new one doesn't die until looooooooong after your laptop dies — which, depending on the brand, could be in 2050 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
