Default I opened my m9 from the outlet today to find...... - 03-19-2009, 07:37 PM

I thought I got myself a deal when I realized there was something just wrong.

I was thinking man this keyboard sucks and when I used my friends it was nice.

I then did a quick search to find out that there are old keyboards and new ones that have a new layout? http://portablemonkey.com/article/bette ... rd-layout/

From reading that page im deducing that new dell mini 9's in the usa have the new keyboard with the Alt G key? And the newer layout?

Also, I am noticing now that the trackpad buttons seems to feel different as well. Was there a revision to the trackpad? I can't get ahold of my friend till he gets back from germany so id like to know if im screwed here.

Was there in fact a revision to the trackpad also? I notice the keys go in more then I remember when messing with the other mini9 and it kind of irritates my thumb.

Thanks for reading.

The US International keyboard is not standard. If you want one you have to buy it separately.

I don't think there's been any revision to the trackpad. I bought one out of the gate in September and have a new one that isn't two weeks old and I don't notice any difference between them.

A happy accident. But really, this discussion could be contained in the original thread here:
