Got my replacement keyboard by just searching Dell Mini 10 replacement keyboard on Amazon. Got it for 9.95 from "Systems Integration Business" partner. Be cautious about the Amazon partners, one was selling the keyboard for $29.95. I had to keep tweaking my search before I found this price.

I am a modder novice, but replaced the keyboard in about 10 minutes. Most of that time just careful poking and prodding to ensure I didn't break the trim piece, which I initiall thought had to be removed. It does not.

Just take out the three screws holding the keyboard and gently do some prying to get the plastic tabs holding the keyboard snapped in place to let loose.

I am sure it is obvious, but if anyone in the U.K. is looking for one of these, please do bear in mind that they the key layout is different to that of the U.S.A. keyboards being discussed here, and so the part numbers will therefore be different also!
