How much to keyboards cost?
ThinkPad keyboards and keypads are typically around $49. Dell keyboards cost a bit less. These keyboards are almost always available new. If you are a heavy typer, nothing feels better than a new keyboard. We replace keyboards occasionally for the visually impaired who need a new keyboard.

Labor generally runs $30 which is our minimum.
How long does it take to replace a laptop keyboard?
Often we must remove the old keyboard to get a part number. We need the unit dropped off to do this. If you want a quote, email us along with the exact machine type and model # from the bottom of your laptop. If you see multiple #s, send ALL of them. If you have a Mac, we will need the serial number.
Most keyboards take around 5 business days to obtain.
Sometimes expedited services are available.
