I also have a similar situation laptop, keyboard is not working so I use onscreen/external keyboard, it is OK since mouse is used most of the time. I am thinking should I buy a replacement, it would be not this cheap ($400) since older one has a very good screen. Now I have one more year syndrome, I hope in a year or so there will be really good (cheap) tablets with matured software so I will not need a laptop.

I still prefer and regularly use my 1980s era IBM keyboard.
