Dell Will Fix Faulty Vostro 1310 and 1510 Laptop Keyboards

Dell on Friday said it has suspended shipment of the two Vostro 1310 and 1510 laptops in Europe after first owners alarmed that these laptops are shipping to Europe with incorrect European keyboard layout. Jennifer Davis, a Dell spokeswoman commented on the story. She pointed out that only a limited number of Vostro 1310 and 1510 laptops with the wrong keyboard layout were shipped in Europe in the middle of April. Fortunately, Dell has stopped further shipments of the laptop models until the problem is fixed. All "lucky" owners of the faulty keyboard laptops will be offered a replacement. "Customers will be given a choice to receive the keyboard kit or have a tech [representative] come on-site, ... The new keyboard is easy to install," Davis said. Laptops shipped outside Europe aren't affected by the glitch.Source: Yahoo! News

Dell Vostro 1310 Keyboards Come with Different and Incorrect Keyboard Layout in UK

I can't explain how happy I'm at the moment, because something like this is being widely reported. It was only a matter of time before someone compain in public. Too bad that it comes from Dell, not the manufacturer I had the same problem with. It seems that the latest Dell Vostro 1310 laptops come with two different types of keyboard layouts - European and USA (International). The problem comes with the European layout which has a big Enter key and changed "forward slash" key position right next to the "Z" key. Try this in a laptop keyboard and the result is sad, the whole bottom row of keys moves with one ahead. Now the worst part, Dell confirmed that all laptops shipped to UK and most likely the whole Europe come with the misconfigured European layout pictured below (third picture shows how the USA layout looks like). I had nearly the same problem with my brand new Logitech G15 rev. 2 keyboard, and it appears all Logitech keyboards ship to Europe with different layout too, without any sign of information that there're two versions - for Europe and USA. It's a shame that things like this happen these days.
