Question light up keyboard for Dell XPS M1710?

Hey all,

I'm looking to revamp my Dell XPS M1710. I've been looking up replacement keyboards for my laptop and so far have only been able to find the default white or black. I really like the look of the "studio" laptops with the light up keyboard, but havent been able to find anything along those lines for my XPS.

Are there any light up/back lit keyboards available for the M1710? Or maybe a light-kit or stand alone lights that I can mount myself?

Thanks in advance!

Looking around, I don't think that is possible.

The other thing you can do is use an external keyboard.
