    My 5 year old ACER C 720P CHROME BOOK ha a few keys that no longer respond.
    I know, buy a new one, but, I see the keyboard sold on AZ for about $20...has anyone changed the Keyboard on one of these? Is it a "doable" job for someone with just "handy" skills?

    It only cost $20 to find out.

    I haven't seen that particular model; but generally changing kybd is pretty easy. You'll run into teeny, tiny screws that require jewelers screwdrivers to remove and they aren't all the same, so you'll have to be careful to record which goes where. There will be a flat ribbon connector that may or may not be keyed. Again, just document the orientation before you yank it.
