Danish keyboard layout in the US?

As im going to the US soon im considering getting a sony vaio z as they cost twice as much in Denmark, the only thing that would keep me away from buying one is the US keyboard layout as it has got no æøå buttons.

So my question is:
Is it possible to buy a sony vaio z in the US with a danish keyboard?

Re: Danish keyboard layout in the US?

It is not possible to purchase a different keyboard, however you can choose a different language within windows7.

The language layout of your computer's keyboard is labeled on the packaging box. If you choose a different regional keyboard when you complete the Windows setup, the key configuration will be mismatched.
To change the keyboard configuration, follow these steps:
1 Click Start and Control Panel.
2 Click Clock, Language, and Region, and then Change keyboards or other input methods under Region and
Language.
3 Click Change keyboards on the Keyboards and Languages tab.
4 Change the settings as desired

this was found on page 195 of the operations manual of the Z1 series notebook.
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/VPCZ110_series.pdf

if this is performed the keys will function with the characters necessary, however as stated above, since the Operating system will still be U.S. English, the keys will no longer match what is typed. Some companies do sell sticker overlays that help resolve this issue.
