Laptop keyboards are the most easily damaged laptop parts. When your laptop keyboard is damaged, then you need to replace it with a brand new keyboard. MyFixGuide store offers hundreds of laptop keyboards, some are single keyboards without palm rest, and some include keyboards and palm rest, as you can see from the product pictures. If you are an experienced laptop repairer, then choosing a single keyboard is a very affordable option as you can spend less money. If you are inexperienced in laptop repairs, then we recommend choosing a keyboard with a palm rest, which means you can replace it easier.
If we classified the keyboard according to the keyboard backlight, it could be divided into a non-backlit keyboard and a backlit keyboard. If your keyboard does not have a backlight, it is better to buy a backlit keyboard to replace it, so you can get a better typing experience.

What kind of laptop keyboard is right for you?
On the whole, a good keyboard should have moderate elasticity, stable key, fast key up speed, and high flexibility. But the feel of the keyboard is an important subjective factor for the user to judge if the keyboard is good or not. Users are accustomed to comparing the new keyboard with the old one. Actually, there is no good or bad keyboard. According to individual preference, the best keyboard is the keyboard which suits you most. The different consumers should select the keyboard based on personal specific requirements. Next, I will talk about a few notes on choosing the laptop keyboard.
When checking the laptop keyboard, you should pay special attention to see if the key layout and key size are reasonable. For instance, do not choose the key layout which conflicts with the key layout which you are familiar with, especially “Shift”, “Ctrl”, “Alt” and other common keys, which are significant to those users who love playing games. Restrained by the laptop volume, most laptop keyboards haven’t adopted the full keyboard design. Although such a design can reduce the keyboard’s volume and bring more convenience, in the meanwhile, it also restricts the user’s type-in feeling.
The ergonomically designed keyboard can reduce fatigue after the user plays on the computer for a long period. The good or bad feelings about the keyboard depend on the material it uses. The key position, keycap, and other factors should be selected based on individual preference since it will influence our feelings while we are tapping the keyboard. The good-quality keyboard of moderate key travel distance and comfortable touch feeling not only has greatly saved our time and improved our work efficiency but also brought the most natural and smooth user experience.
Generally speaking, the smaller laptop with worse comfort. Besides, the laptop which adopts the widescreen has more advantages than the other when comparing two laptops with the same size. As some laptops’ size has been diminished to 12-inch or even smaller, the key travel will also be diminished, which results in inconvenient operation. Users are easy to feel tired after operating for a long time.
The ultrabook leaves less space for the keyboard owing to its ultra-thin volume. Therefore, the key travel commonly comes with a short design. If a user keeps using the keyboard for a long time, the user will be easy to feel fatigued on the fingers. Although the ultrabook has excellent portability, personally speaking, the ultrabook isn’t fit for long-time operation owing to the bad touch feeling of the keyboard operation.
The small laptop is also restricted by its size and volume. It isn’t convenient for people who have big hands or keep long fingernails to use because of the small laptop’s small key distance and keycap. Although the full-size keyboard is easy to operate, to a certain degree, the laptop has lost a laptop’s portability owing to its relatively large size and weight.
Therefore, a laptop with a full-size keyboard is not suitable for businessmen, travelers, or those who often take laptops outside. According to this analysis, we can easy to see that there exists a big conflict between comfort and portability. That’s why the keyboard can’t bring the touch feeling that the tablet’s keyboard brings. In a word, the keyboard which suits you most is the best. Finally, I sincerely hope this guide can be helpful for you to find a suitable laptop keyboard.
