For Sale: Mechanical Keyboards and Cap sets

For Sale:
Mechanical Keyboards and Cap sets

Will Ship To: US50, US48

My laptop decided it wants to give up the ghost and I don't have money for one since I'm still looking for work. Since it's difficult to do proper job searching without one given the lack of public computers I can use for more than an hour, I'm selling off a bunch of keyboard related stuff to try and help me afford a new one.
What I have for sale:

Wyse Set 1. This set uses the Wyse colors and Wyse font, but I'm not sure if it's a true Wyse set. It lacks the arrow keys and has a right hand side function row that's missing F1 and F2, but other than that, it's pretty much Wyse. It had the esc on the numpad like IBM Model Fs do, but I added some other keys to make it so you can have a full numpad if you want. Other than the two missing Function keys, it's in great condition with very little shine (though it is starting) and marginal yellowing. It's thin ABS. Asking $16 + shipping. This will require a moogle or mod set to be a fully functioning cap set.

Wyse set 2. This is a thin ABS Wyse set. It's yellowed and shine is starting, but not readily apparent. Overall, it's in pretty good condition. Asking $18 + shipping. This will require a moogle or mod set to be a fully functioning cap set.

ibm model m has buckling springs and tactility feedback etc I think alps just bottom out so you wold be mashig your fingers into a solid with the alps whereas on the bucling springs as soon as the spring buckles te key is actuated thus no slamming your fingers into a solid surface.

It's entirely subjective. There are some people who love buckling spring, some who love different types of Alps, some who prefer different Cherry MX switches.

And contrary to what was said, Alps are fine if you're more of a floating typist. Since the tactile point is at the top, lighter typers shouldn't necessarily bottom out Alps. They are somewhat easy to bottom out though.

I said slamming your fingers. Not floating. If you are a heavy typist I figure the M would be ideal. In the keyboards thread they discuss all the different types of keys. There are a few reasons people regard the model M as a great typing keyboard. http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/mechanical-keyboard-guide


and to support my previous statement "Black Alps are one of the two most common Alps switch types. Many people do not like these switches due to the fact that they are stiff, bottom out hard, and tend to develop friction in the travel as they wear. Nonetheless, they are an improvement over most rubber dome keyboards."

"White Alps are one of the most common Alps switch types. These are far more popular than the Black switches due to more pronounced tactility, and the lower force requirements of some versions. Like the Black Alps, White Alps are much easier to bottom out on compared with other mechanical keyswitch designs."
