American keyboard

Due to our IT department not knowing the difference between a UK and a UK keyboard, I now have the US layout on my work PC.
It's not such a disaster - because apple had the same issues when they sold me an iMac.

But now I would like to get a US layout keyboard for the docking station at work ... everything is set up as UK ( with a UK keyboard), and when I travel the keyboard on the PC assumes UK settings.

As I am not a touch typist it drives me nuts.
Does anyone have an old one lying around or know where I can buy one?
Thanks

Re: American keyboard

There are 4 new ones here,

What connection do you want? PS2 or USB? For Apple or Microsoft?

Have you asked at Interdiscount? Fust?

Another 300 various here,

Re: American keyboard

I have one that I don't use since a long time. It is in one of my box in the cellar. If you are interested, let me know and I'll get it out tomorrow and take a picture of it.

Re: American keyboard

I have a USB HP keyboard (US layout). It's hardly been used but otherwise looks quite new. I'd prefer to swap with a similar Swiss or UK layout rather than give it up for free.

Re: American keyboard

why not go into settings and change the Keyboard layout to US?
