The Lite is absolutely terrible. You should avoid it like the plague, unless you're only buying it to see if you like the layout without paying for an HHKB 2 Pro.

But yeah that's the entire point of mechanical boards. That and the fact that they last for practically forever. If you really like the ABS M1 and there's nothing you'd change about it, then stick with it. But if you want to change the stiffness, get a more precise or completely remove the tactile bump, lengthen/shorten the travel distance, or whatever else, then that's when you should start looking for a new switch type.

I didnt say it was perfect. The ABS M1 is my first mech and now im hooked. These are a multitude of probs with the ABS M1: wasd print fading away, led on caps, scoll is way to bright, and like I said that for me it doesnt seem to be the best for gaming even though its pretty good. I would like something like the HHP2 layout and size becuz it looks like the keys of it are a bit bigger. I'm considering cherry black, brown, red and topre.

Well if you don't want to pay for a Topre board, you can wait and get this at the end of the year:

What'd they do, put some switches on a PCB and send it to retail with no case? That thing looks flimsy as hell!

It was actually a mod from someone over at geekhack a while ago. But everyone really liked it.

And it's not as flimsy as you'd think. It's got a solid aluminum casing underneath it. Open up the site and check out the gallery, you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'm fully planning on picking one up. I just can't decide if I want it with Cherry Reds for gaming or with Blues for carrying with my laptop when I travel. But I'm leaning towards the blues.

Ah, I remember seeing that. It's just that other picture gives it a sense of scale, of how small it really is. I guess what makes it look fragile is that you can see under the keys in places, which is really weird and it looks like they're really exposed. At least that's what it looks like.

Yeah, he was going for a floating keyboard look. But either way, exposed or not, worst case all you can possibly do is break a stem off a switch and replace it for 75 cents.

I was thinking about saying floating. It really does look like that, he pulled it off.

Any word on price?
