    Hi all,

    I just got a Toughbook CF-53 MK1 cf-53aszcgfp, I realized it does not have its original keyboard.

    Underneath is a sticker saying mp-03106e0d8145.
    It appears to be a keyboard for CF-28,29,30,31.
    It looks unused.

    Is this some sort of bad for me?
    Does the original keyboard(s) offer something different? Spill resistance?

    Well that's good to know since I do have a few of them keyboards kicking around if my 53 keyboard dies. The 53 keyboard spill resistance, nope. As far as I know no difference.

    That's just the standard keyboard for the 28,29,30,31,52,73,74 by the looks of it. Trick is to see if it has the 3rd slot for backlit keyboard.

    Oh, that's a German keyboard.:D

    That one is not, but it might be able to be replaced with a backlit, there is another small connection across from the 2 main ribbons.:D

    It should have it. That's the first thing I installed on my 53.

    It absolutely "may" have it. I replaced one yesterday. 53AAGZX1M

    The connector was there but I had to use a "used but good" regular keyboard.

    Waiting on a newish BLKB.
