The RK9000 is "Deactivated. This item is currently out of stock and it may or may not be restocked."

Coincidence?

A keyboard with similar layout would be KBC Poker which GeekHack has exclusive to. Check out this thread and pre-order with iMav (link).
Thanks! I'm guessing though that in order for the arrow keys to function, they must be pressed down in conjunction with a function key of some sorts?

The Noppoo mini is pretty much a dream layout to me. Gets rid of extra space from the numpad and the arrow keys, and I don't mind the undersized shift key at all, since I pretty much hit the left most part of the shift key anyway. Guess I'll have to settle for importing it and stomach the shipping fees.

Doubt it. Newegg says that about every item that's out of stock. They list them as "Deactivated" but it always happens this way.

It wouldn't be the first time Newegg/Rosewill has sold the same product as another brand but done so at a cheaper price.

Hi,

I have been trying to get my hands on a 6GV2 for a long time, but I so far have been unable to find anywhere that sells it. I asked SteelSeries when they would be available about a month before Christmas, to which they replied "in time for Christmas". Not so. I asked them again recently, but was told to use the tool on their site for finding retailers (no luck).

Anyone know any good alternatives to the 6G and places to buy?

He is referring to the IBM Model M SpaceSaver; it's the tenkeyless version of the classic IBM Model M.

Not every item.

For example:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823830003

Screenshot, just in case it's back in stock by the time you see this.

I bet I could find at least 100 more examples. So they don't only use "Deactivated" when something is out of stock. Instead, that seems reserved for items where they have absolutely no idea of when they'll get more, if ever.
It's a computer!

Though they are not exactly small.

Ch_123 should be able to comment on exact size but I do believe the Unicomp Space Saver is around the same size.

Comment about his second suggestion.

Speaking of the Unicomp.
The point of a Tenkeyless board is to save space but Model M's are just large. No getting around that.
Again, Unicomp.

He was speaking of the Unicomp, and it is 104/105 keys. It's not just the form factor that counts.


On another note, I was not even aware that the RK-9000 was still being sold. Is it available on ChiefValue?

Edit: Guess it's no longer offered on CV.
