Interne Tastatur - Schweizerisch? [Internal keyboard Switzerland, what's the layout?]

I was looking at the dell website and looking at laptops. When it came to the choice of keyboards, I was presented with 4 choices.


Interne Tastatur - Italienisch (QWERTY) zuzgl. CHF 0.00
Interne Tastatur - Schweizerisch (QWERTZ) [Im Preis enthalten]

Interne Tastatur - Schweiz/Franzsisch (QWERTZ) zuzgl. CHF 0.00

Interne Tastatur - Schweiz/Deutsch (QWERTZ) zuzgl. CHF 0.00


I understand what the italian, french and german keyboards mean. What does the other one entail? Are the z and the y keys in the uk positions or in the german ones?

It'll be with Z and Y alternated from standard QWERTY.

I think I've got a swiss keyboard (i.e. not swiss/french or swiss/german). On the accent keys it has above and above printed on the key. At work I have a swiss/german. It only has the above the printed on the key.

Talking about keyboards, do you know of anybody else apart from Dell who sells international keyboards ? The local shops don't as far as I know.

Re: Interne Tastatur - Schweizerisch? [Internal keyboard Switzerland, what's the layo

I bought my Toshiba at Interdiscount in Bern, and it has what I consider the "normal" Swiss keyboard QWERTZ with both German and French accents to the right of the P and L. I think all the comps. here are available with this kind of keyboard, and now that I am used to the Y ad Z being transposed, have no problems with that - mine is even programmed in English. I had a Dell before, but wouldnt take another as a gift!
