Laptop For Sale $125

I just got done replacing a keyboard on a laptop I have for sale. It had a few buttons that were a bitThum-laptop-4s loose. I wanted to take a few photos along the way to post here but it made it take about 3x longer to do. I had to keep taking photos to get ones that were not blurred or showed up ok w/o flash washing everything out. Not all keyboards go in the same way so may be different depending on you model.
