Hey,

I just purchased a Powerbook G4, and it's missing the F5 key. Anyone know where I can buy a replacement key or am I doomed to buy a whole new keyboard?

You need to buy a whole new keyboard, which is about $100 for backlit or $80 for non-backlit.
Someone may have some lying around in there service department though.

Thanks chocho, but its a aluminum powerbook g4 1.33ghz.

The site that you mentioned Squozen, seems to not stock the powerbook 1.33ghz keys in particular for some reason.

Thanks for the replies so far.

I've got a 12" 1.33 keyboard that had a fight with a beer bottle... I it just the keytop you need, or the "scissors" parts as well?
