A500 - Broken Keyboard

So my cat disgraced himself by taking a wee where it wasn't welcome.

The keyboard is now a complete non starter after an abandoned inspection.

What are my options?

I like the idea of a USB keyboard adaptor, I could tower the m/b. What sort of size pc case is the best fit?

The A500 has got a A590 HD - is there a ribbon cable for relocating it? I'm not so fussed about having a 200mb HD but it has got an extra 1/2 mb (fast?)

And PSUs.. I'l get an atx PSU to replace both the A590 and A500 one.

You could probably get away with a thorough wash and a new membrane.

Otherwise, there are purveyors of replacement keyboards nowadays, and there probably will be more next year.
