I tried that with my laptop but sadly it kept hitting keys, although I honestly like my laptops keyboard a lot.

Thats why I went with my ipad set up instead of a normal laptop, the ipad will do 90% of what I would be doing on the laptop, and can use a mech. its the perfect 'laptop' for me.

Tonight i'll order a poker, some springs, and get to working on a custom sleeved cable for it.

Bye bye moneyies.

Maybe I'll sell off my extra QFR to make up for the money. I don't like reds anymore, and I can either make it a normal qfr, a stealth edition, or full blown custom.

well the way I feel about own kit in the workplace, I spend at least 8 hours a day there, so I am wanting comfort to be a priority, its funny how companies have differing interpretations of ergonomics too, my current place seems to like the top of the desk to be almost under my chin frown.gif

Better monitors are easier on the eyes (I am not on about bezels and so on but screen image).
Better keyboard and mouse is less stress on the hands/wrists

so I don't think I am being silly, and as for the low resolutions, again it is down to fitting information on screen at a reasonable size and clarity.

just my 2p smile.gif

What switches are you getting? Blue and putting heavy springs in it?

I heard people on GH saying the poker was a pain to desolder for some reason, made me want to try it myself but I didn't bother.

I do a bit more with a laptop. I still want to turn a hard case into an all-in-one mITX system, complete with mechanical keyboard. The screen could be recessed enough in the lid to let it fit.

Oh people, this is great news IMO. I contacted maxkeyboards about their double shot backlit keycaps because I was trying to get them to sell me a set or two and they told me that they will be available for purchase in the near future biggrin.gif

shouldn't be that hard, there are several 'breifcase builds' on here.

and yeah, I feel your pain baker, my desk is also pretty tall, and my chair won't go any higher. I'm not very tall and I often sit on my feet to make my arms feel comfortable when working. I can't think of any good way of modding an office chair to make it taller. I need to buy a new office chair anyway, I don't like the one I currently have, its all worn out.

and yeah i'll buy blues and put some 80g springs in it. just not sure if I want white or black, leaning towards white.
Though i'm trying to figure out if its going to draw too much power, since it has internal memory and stuff, i'm starting to think it will, and if it does, then Its useless to me.

With integrated UPS and dGPU for hybrid crossfire? This probably will end up being my next rig when Carrizo or Basilisk comes out in 2015 or 2016, respectively.
