    I bought my laptop from abroad and it turns out to have the US keyboard layout and I'm far too used to the UK layout to have to relearn it. I COULD just get some cheap white labels and stick them on the keyboard but I was wondering what's the recommended site for buying keypads for your region?

    What's the make / model of the laptop? Laptop keyboards are not a standard size or shape, and tend to vary across manufacturers and models so you need to make sure you get one that fits. Alternately you could try to get replacement keys rather than replacing the whole board, but I'm not sure where to get them from or if they attach in a standard way across all models.
