I wanted to change the actual touchpad so that it was the dvorak keys on top. I had one member tell me about printing the keys on high gloss paper which might work. I was curious if anyone knew about the actual electronics underlying the top touchpad. I had a DVORAK board that short circuited out last month and wondered if I could take that touchpad and exchange it with the used QWERTY I just bought. For the price I paid, I didn't want to ruin the working one by trying to do something stupid. Thankfully, I did know I can change the virtual layout or I wouldn't have invested in the QWERTY.
(Call it slightly geeky, but I justed wanted it to look like a dvorak board. I have an office mate that doesn't know anything about dvorak and at least that way she could have hunted and pecked for the right keys if she needed to use the keyboard.)
