Hi everybody, most of website and retail seller allow us to pre-order the new g550jk from now. I would say this machine fit perfectly for me. HOWEVER, IT KEYBOARD MAKE ME CONFUSED NOW. here is the picture of it :38137
it is clearly that symbol A,Q,W,Z and many others are changed. It is so confused me. Is this for real, what kind of keyboard is hard, it is so hard to get use to with a new keyboard like that. Is that anyway that i can change it back to it should be ?

That's a region-specific keyboard used for customers in France and Belgium.

If you're looking for a QWERTY keyboard, chances are it will be localized and produced with one soon. You might need to get in touch with Asus sales support on that.

We customize Asus, MSI, and Clevo laptops!

the image of keyboard i attracted in my post is the same as those from many authorized retail stores in the usa, even the asususa website. That weird, check those websites:

From what i know the model in question has not been released yet and is to be released on the 20th of July.
Is that the same model as the one in Question?

I believe the model in Question is this one : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KOUILK2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Hi Keper,

thanks for pointing out that.
the picture I posted was G550JK-CN204H, sorry for the confusion.

I don't know as much about this and usually try to avoid hearing too much about it since we normally cannot say much, but some models may be released in different regions first, or even to some resellers first, so if it matters, we might want to ask skycer where they are located or where they purchased the unit if this matters.

From Canada, and I just purchased the Asus G550jk-DB-71-CA model, which has the standard QWERTY keyboard with the long enter bar.

Did you Buy the laptop from a store or online?

If online did the pictures show a QWERTY keyboard

Ahahahaha I would have had a heart-attack too if I got my laptop with a keyboard like this and I wasn't French. Don't worry. It's localised, you'll be fine.
