Can i change the screen of my HP pavilion 15 to a touch screen and change the keyboard to a backlit?

Pavilion 15-p209ni
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I recently bought the Pavilion 15-p209ni (M6F16EA).  I am very happy with the product but i would like to make some chnages to it as well. My hope is that i will be able to change the current keyboard to a backlit version and also chnage the current non-touch screen to a touch screen. If this is at all possible, i would love to be notified and also to be told approximate prices for these changes.

The Model series did have a touchscreen option so theoretically you could buy the touchscreen assembly and retrofit it to your current chassis. Likely you would be looking at something like $3-400 for parts and labor. There is no backlit keyboard option. 

 

The economics of the touchscreen upgrade do not really make sense. You would likely come out better buying a new laptop and selling yours so at least you could retain a warranty.

Thank you for the help. Do you think its possible that a back-lit option would be available anytime soon?

No it never happens that they go back and add options to past models. They are designed and made and they move on to the next model.
