my Dell XPS laptop is over 3 years old. I travel with it all the time.. in.. 
out of the case, through airport security, rental cars, hotels... I busted 
the "V" key last year, replaced the keyboard myself. I didn't understand the 
ordering thingie and ended up with a French keybord. The "\" isn't written on 
the right key,but I know it's there, and it has the British pound symbol, 
not "#" above the 3. For $10 I should get a real US keyboard, but it hasn't 
agravated me enough yet. I keep hoping it will die, so I can get a new 
laptop.. I'm jealous of my wifes new Dell Inspiron 1525!!!
