Dell XPS 15 L502x replacement keyboard?

    Hi all,

    My Dell XPS 15 L502x has been going strong since the day I bought it back in 2011. It's currently rolling with a 512GB SSD, 16GB Ram and in fairness does not miss a beat.

    The problem that has arisen is that the keyboard has died. It lasted a long time, in fairness, but with 4 keys officially dead I need to get my hands on a replacement.

    Does anyone know any reputable sites that would have this part in stock? I see a lot on eBay but have no doubt many are cheap knock offs and would rather not go through the dispute process with them.

    Same request as regards a legitimate battery as dell has stopped selling parts for this machine long ago.

    I've toyed with a new laptop but I have to go into the €1,500+ realm to get audio and a screen as good as the one on this machine and, tbf, it takes on any modern (non gaming/CAD) task on Windows 10 like a champ.

    Thanks for reading!

    Plenty on ebay as you say, genuine Dell part it says. Pick a seller with good rating? They seem to be only 30-40 EUR delivered.
