Still looking for a US source, but here's a European source that indicates it's in stock (don't know if they ship to the US or not):  http://www.exellent-it.be/CAH_Products/CAH_ProdDetailsL2.ASP?lang=UK&ref=86322962

Perhaps the E.I.E.I.O. store has them :-)

These guys show 6 of them in stock:

... and (finally) one that actually has a price and a phone number (but still in Europe):

Hi Gary, I had found those also but no luck in getting it here.(I appreciate the offer but, my wife might be a little peeved ~:-(  if she didn't get to Paris when I'm paying the fare)
I checked with MDG Canada and they confirmed that MSI is the brand, so I've emailed them to inquire on finding a replacement. If you have any other tricks up your sleeve, I'd like to hear them.

In Solidarity,  E.I.E.I.O. (and sadly, the union store is devoid of laptop keyboards)

I'd call the last link and ask if they'll ship one [02/502.22.44].   I suspect they will => although the shipping is probably more than the keyboard :-)     They don't give a country code, but I believe it's probably Belgium (32), although it could be France (33) or Holland (31).  I'd at least call and have a chat.

... If I needed one of these I'd find a way :-)  [Perhaps a Belgium-based EE member could help :-)  e.g. nobus]

it is now 11.20 local time, and i plan to eat with my wife :" a pot of moules and some frites "; in fact i was cleaning them ...
But you forgot a good Stella or 2 with it..

MarkAuthor Commented:
OOH.....Stella, an indulgence I would partake in heartily :-) I even have a special glass for it.

and before anyone makes a comment on the location of the glass in this pic, be assured, I do not drink and surf.(or use my laptop as a coaster)

If I had a $ for every Stella & every Maes Pils I drank in Belgium I could buy a LOT of new computers :-)

[But I sure would love some moules & frites w/a Stella for dinner !!]

Hi guys, just an update. Finally got my hands on the laptop and installed the new keyboard. Works flawlessly.
Many thanks, especially to Nobus' wife who did the leg work on the banking end of things.
A round of Stella for all ;-)
