Yes and no. Dell hasn't changed 600m's design to fix this problem. The flexibility of the keyboard depends on the keyboard you get. There are two types - one has a tougher metal plate on the bottom and can be distinguished from the other/older keyboard by the holes in the plate - the stronger keyboard has less of them. Both have the same part number (perhaps they also differ by the revision number). I recently purchased a second 600m and the keyboard has the older design but isn' t as bad (or perhaps I just got used to it). Also bending the keyboard in a sort of up side down slight bell curve does stabilize it. Spiike's keyobard fix just didn't do it for me.
As for the touchpad. The first 600m I got in may had a loose touchpad in the lower right while the one I got two weeks agot is solid. I think it just depends who put the thing together. To stabilize it, I simply bent the metal plate beneath it.
