I can suggest a $400 solution:
...another PrecisionBook.

I've found no keyboard problems like you describe on mine,
and X works just fine with the internal LCD screen (haven't tried an
external monitor).

On your keyboard problem...plug in an external keyboard and see if the
problem exists with it, too.  Either way, that should localize the problem
