Hello!
As of subject, I'd like to connect one of my spares thinkpad keyboards to an usb port and use it as my primary keyboard for my desktop computer.

I know lenovo sells thinkpad keyboard, but they are f*cking expensive, i'm too poor to buy one of them.

Any hints about this, by the way?

It would be absolutely cool to use a *real* thinkpad keyboard everywhere.

Thank you in advance,

rzl

It is not possible, but there is USB thinkpad keyboard even with trackpoint. But it is little expensive, in my opinion.

I just bought two external keyboards similar/same as in the above post/pic, and I got 'em for just over $50 off of ebay. Work great, too, altho I have noticed some diff in relative positioning of the Fx keys at top. Not a big deal, just something to get used to.
