Whoa, I'm going to DC on a school trip next week. Maybe I can sneak out and take a cab to MC.

It is the Rockville location, there is only one there, a special order that was not picked up. Good luck.

Yeah, my wife is doing some research at the National Institute of Health so we are spending a week in Rockville. I am already pretty tired of the tourist thing. I miss my dual monitors, lol.

This thread is so correct in many ways.

I see people raving on how awesome their G5 or Razer keyboard is.

I have a crappy OEM keyboard from Acer that uses PS/2, and I can game as well as a G5. In fact, I don't feel as though the layout of the G5 is any good.

This mini-rant would have been more credible if the G5 had been a keyboard.

Oh man, my mother is one of those. When I was a kid I used to hate it when she dragged me along for "vacations" because they were a complete waste of time.

I don't like the layout of the G15 either. The macro keys are too far away from WASD to be useful in fast-paced games (maybe some people manage it but I can't). If they had made the whole keyboard fully programmable at the hardware level, like the old Gateway Anykey, it would be a different story.

Then again, AutoHotkey does the job pretty well too

Well I got my Model M from eBay yesterday and I'm putting it through its paces. I have to say it's nice than the mush-key onces I've been using. However, it's not *exactly* what I want. The springs are a little stiffer than I'd like, the clicky action is a little on the tinny side (though I like the sound, I think), and I wish the switch had a shorter throw (not as short as a laptop though.. I can't stand laptop keyboards). Sometimes I also get a bit of a tinny echo sound as I hit the keys, though I love the clicky goodness.

I'll probably keep it for awhile.. but any recommendations based on what I've said above?
