    I need a keyboard for my m18x. Part number 8GWD6, I think there is one other that will fit also.

    Thank You

    Hi, I believe the M18x R2 uses the same keyboard as the M18x R1, M17x R3 and R4. I think they use different part numbers. :)

    Thats 100% correct, m17xR4 + m18xR2 can use m17xR3/m18xR1 keyboards 100% backwards compatible, but not the opposite, something about older models is different in wiring layout that wont let newer keyboards function properly in older machines.

    PS, ive got keyboards too.

    M17x R1 and M17x R2 keyboards are also interchangeable.

    I am having some issues with my keyboard (m17xr4), some of the keys are not working anymore.
    I've tried looking online for a replacement, but no luck.

    Do you still have any available ?
