My google search skills are seriously lacking in this one.

I need a new keyboard for an Acer Aspire V5 and cant find anything with my usual suppliers. Does anyone have any local laptop part suppliers before I go overseas ?

 

Thanks

Is V5 the full model number? I did a quick google but the model numbers are all much longer.

Buy this one for parts?  http://www.trademe.co.nz/computers/laptops/laptops/acer/auction-682878996.htm

Definitely need the model number though, there are some with numeric keypads, some without and different screen sizes.

Good point, its an Acer Apsire V5-531, model MS2361.

The part number of the keyboard itself is MP-11F53U4-4424W

US$40 on ebay or other sites if you want to get from overseas, but I expect you've found them already.
