Do scaled-down mechanical keyboard exist?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm not talking about keyboards with regular-size keys moved closer together or something with those horrible keys on laptop keyboards. I'm wondering if there is such a thing as a mechanical keyboard that has everything (including keys) scaled down around 10-20% smaller, but perfectly proportional to a standard mechanical keyboard.

Does such a thing exist?

Well there's tenkeyless keyboard's, which are a good bit smaller. I'm not sure about like a legitimate scaled down version of something like this

With smaller keys? Not as far as I know (and that's not a lot really)

There are the so-called 60 % and 75 % keyboards like the KBT Pures and Noppoo Choc mini . Those are pretty small as well.

The only thing I've seen so far is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823333078

I have no idea on the quality, or anything of this board. But it looks "scaled back" I guess.

That's not mechanical.

Here's Noppoo Choc mini (upper one). Lower one is Ducky 1087 (without numpad = tenkeyless).

Thanks for the replies but those are not scaled down proportional keyboards - they just have regular size keys moved closer together with a few keys resized like shift, enter, and spacebar.

I believe the Cherry G84 IS scaled down. A 88% keyboard IIRC.

I'll have to post sometime the RipOpaper trick for measuring that.
