    Laptop with UK keyboard?

    Hi all, I have a friend trying to find a retailer who sells laptops (PC, Windows preferable) with UK keyboards. Anyone know anything?

    Thanks!

    Amazon UK?

    The vast majority of users here would find a UK keyboard to be a total pain, I'd expect vendors would have to sell at a discount if they somehow ended up with stock.

    Can't they just change the software layout?

    I switch between several different - remember the few keys that change in each layout...

    Yeah, it's been surprisingly difficult to find keyboards with UK layout. Amazon UK is an option though, thank you.

    I wouldn't say "surprisingly"!

    Almost nobody is going to want a keyboard with @ in the wrong place.

    Hmmmm, I collected and stored away the "££££££££" character in a file, and when, on rare occasions that I need it, I grab a £ sign and insert it into the text where it was needed.

    Simple - AND - much cheaper than forking out £5+ for stick-ons and wait on deliveries from 'UK..... and I still have $$$$$$$$$$$ sign readily available.

    So much better when it comes to selling the computer keyboard to have a "standard" keyboard layout that "locals" can relate to !

    I really don't know how my sister, who shuttles between France, England & Scotland copes with a Norse keyboarded Laptop given her by her son who lives & works in Norway.

    When I first came to HK I was very insistent on a UK keyboard, even at work, cause this is what I was used to my whole life.

    Got over that very easily. Now am fine with the US keyboards in HK with UK English language.
