Personally, I prefer Topre over all the cherry switches, and every other type of keyboard I've tried.

I think the only reason they don't have a good gaming rep is that most gamers are looking in the $100 range, and want features like macros or backlights.

That leaves you with most of the reviews for gaming coming from people who really don't game, and are just guessing what a gamer would like. As a "serious" gamer, I think the Topre are awesome .

Realforces have been said to be smoother than the HHKB. I personally would use the Realforce with your gaming PC and the Leopold for the *cough* ahem *cough* Mac.

Typing up papers and other lengthy tasks are actually fun when on a mech. I just typed up a guide that took about an hour and a half, and I loved it. Now I'm on my laptop, which has rubber dome switches. My fingers get fatigued faster now (when using rubber domes).

I want to try out MX browns. What's a cheap keyboard you guys would suggest?

if you dont mind waiting, elitekeyboards is having pre-orders for a tenkeyless leopold in brown and blue switches, 99 each.
