Laptop keyboard designs typically include a keyboard module that utilizes a stainless steel feature plate to support the keys and to mount the keyboard module to the laptop. This disclosure describes a laptop enclosure with an integrated keyboard feature plate. Other elements of keyboard assembly such as keyboard keys and membrane are top loaded into the laptop enclosure. A keyboard webbing is laminated to the enclosure to complete the assembly. By eliminating the use of a separate feature plate, thinner and lighter laptop designs are enabled.
