I purchased an Acer aspire 5733z 4406 p6200 about 18 months ago and I've had nothing but trouble with the keyboard. The keys are "floating" above the keyboard (the design flaw that allows all dust and debri to settle UNDER the keys and become nearly impossible to remove.) This has made typing a nightmare, then they keys started to pop off around the one year mark (just past the warranty period.) I've NEVER had this happen on a laptop and I've had an Acer before, a little netbook, but always with the chicklet keyboard. I bought this computer online from a major store (and saw photos but I could not tell how badly designed the keyboard was from the photos, I also did not see complaints online of the issues that this keyboard design has.) I have tried to search for a replacement keyboard for this laptop so I can replace it with a keyboard that functions properly and will last but all I find being advertised are the same defective keyboards (really, who made up this design??? I've never seen it on another laptop so I had no idea that there were keyboards so drastically different from the usual, and functional, chicklet type.) Is there a replacement keyboard that I can get that will work in this laptop that is a normal/chicklet design? The current keyboard makes this laptop, essentially, a giant paperweight (or I have to plug in an external keyboard, which is ridiculous for a laptop.) Thanks.
