Having recently picked up a second hand Asus X550JX, I was wondering how feasible it is to change the keyboard (US to UK), and also the lid cover, which has quite a lot of scratches.

I'm not sure if physically, a UK keyboard would be compatible in place of the US one, not having done this before. And I know a skin could be applied to the cover in any case, but would be nice to know if it's possible to replace it altogether.

Edit - thanks for the answer, it'll be useful for future reference. However after seeing a video on how to remove said keyboard, I don't think I'll bother, seems like a very arduous task compared to other laptops.
