Wanted old Laptop keyboards for Repurposing Laptop project

Thu Feb 26, 2015 6:45 pm

I'm looking to get hold of some old laptop keyboards with either an integrated pointing stick or with a touchpad that has a scroll section on the side.
We're working on a project to put Pi Compute modules inside old laptops. Part of the project is interfacing Laptop keyboards and Touchpads to the Pi. So far we've been able to get all the half or dozen or so keyboards of various makes and connections to work.

I'm going to be at the Raspberry Pi Big Birthday do in Cambridge this weekend if anyone has something suitable and could bring along please email me at
Or we are in Worthing West Sussex UK (I'm hoping to avoid having to get them posted on cost and environmental grounds)

Any help very gratefully received.
