    Hi guys,

    I've been offered a good deal on an air but it has a Swiss keyboard... Can it be changed to English? I've looked at the ifixit tear down and it looks long but manageable and I like a challenge

    The question is the unibody keyboard layout different? Do I just need a keyboard or do I need a unibody part and keyboard?

    Cheers

    Hi

    I was wondering if you actually need to replace the whole keyboard mechanism , can't you just change the plastic key caps?

    I had to replace my keyboard a month or so ago... I'm using it now so it was a success but the feel of the keys isn't 100% what it used to be. I went for the cheap option and replaced just the mechanism itself. It was a bit of a job!
