Hi,

 

Did you know you also need to buy new CPU ? This would be a very expensive upgrade; plus labor cost, this would be more expensive than buying a new machine with backlit keyboard ready.

 

The series does not have this option therefore you have to buy a different motherboard (if available) and hope it will fit to the case of your machine now. You also need to buy new CPU because you won't be able to reuse the existing CPU.

 

Hope this makes sense in terms of cost. At the mean time, why not try (many older machines use a similar way - I've got one HP machine which has a light above the webcam area).
