from what ive seen it doesnt have a backlit keyboard but there is one easy way to find out
in the start menu search HWsetup and open it. if it has a backlit keyboard there will be an illumination tab. when you open it there will be an option to turn on the backlit keyboard only if it has it.
hope that helps
