btw is that map from the filco website? or elitekeyboards.com?

Also is there any local vendors for them? My Credit Card has been compromised. Someone got a hold of it, and made charges the next day after i bought something off of newegg ._. so now i have to wait for another one.
It's from FedEx's website. I looked the zip code that Elite Keyboards ships their orders out from, and then I looked it up on FedEx's website by going to Ship > Get Rates & Transit Times > Ground Service Maps tab > Entered the zip code > Clicked View map > Took a screenshot, cropped it and then saved it.

If Brian were to put this up on the Elite Keyboards website somewhere, then he'd have to make sure that he always has the most up-to-date map.

Filco is Japanese. elitekeyoards.com is the only US distributor, and AFAIK he hasn't been putting them in local shops yet.

That's another thing about mechanical keyboards that bothered me. Is there a mechanical keyboard available with low profile keys?

I don't think that's possible. Unless it's some sort of mechanical/membrane hybrid.

Cherry MY switches are low-profile (like laptops) but they're fairly rare.

Burning books is like burning bras; after the adrenaline rush of the symbolic moment wears off all you're left with is a pile of ashes and unsupported boobs.

You can get Cherry ML switches here and here. Oh, and here. Just look for any Cherry board with the model number starting in G84.

IMO they aren't really as refined as the other switches, but if that's your thing then go for it.



Edit: MY switches aren't low profile. Only ML.

You could also get a Cherry MX 11900 (or G80-11900). Normally you can find them on ebay for just a few bucks, but all the ones left are the ridiculously priced ones.
