A key fell off my old IBM Thinkpad 600E. Is there a place to purchase a
single key, or do I have to replace the entire keyboard?
If I have to replace the entire keyboard... is there a good site to
purchase a replacement keyboard? Or even better... any authorized repair
depots that you can recommend in the Toronto area?

Do you still have the key? Is the spring mechanism broken? If not, you
should be able to snap it back into place, with a little patience and
maybe some help from a pair of tweezers or another small instrument.
If it's broken or lost, you'll have a hard time finding a replacement
for a single key. Your best bet IMO is just to buy a new keyboard on
eBay and replace it yourself. Keyboard replacements are usually very
easy on laptops. Most of the time you don't even need to unscrew
