You're a foreigner living in Japan, and you're in the market for a computer with an English keyboard. To your chagrin perhaps finding that laptop with an English keyboard proves rather taxing. Or maybe you're forever stalking the elusive desktop English keyboard. Some find luck wandering the snaking streets of Akihabara, seeking that rare shop selling overseas laptop models. Japan is mostly Japanese people, so I guess it makes sense that most computers come with Japanese keyboards. Fair enough. Here are my suggestions for relieving the arduousness of this task. When it comes to this hunt, I personally don't bother with brick-and-mortar shops, so you'll notice that most all my solutions below involve online shopping.
