Wow this thread does move fast...

Manyak I can't believe you actually changed your avatar . I like Love my T400

That round fuzzy (I forget the proper name) trackpoint is nice, but it makes my index finger feel like it's getting a blister. Same with the standard one. I really like the concave one though. BTW what model is it, that battery is huge! I only get max 8-10hrs on my 9cell idling at 7-12W.

/Off topic

Uh, there are a ton of pages to reply too. Phaedrus2129, that board looks really nice, but you need to dye the keys and pull a few off and see if you can mod them .

I don't like either of his avatars. he should take a tight shot of a IBM Model M keycap and use a magic marker to draw a happy face on it.

Mod them how? Only thing they really need is to be stabilized somehow... And that's unfeasible.

I can't swap out the switches if that's what you're thinking. They appear to be plate mounted, with a PCB or membranes underneath. And I'm willing to bet the spacing between the PCB and plate is different from that of the MX switches. There's also no room to add, say, a USB hub or any such; I doubt if there's a cubic centimeter of available space in this thing.

I do think I'm going to get new feet put on it... The right one squeaks as I move it across the desk.

lol yeah I've had that last avatar since 2008. I figured it was time for a change.

The proper name is the "classic" cap, but it's better known as the cat's tongue. The one you like is called soft rim

It's the T410, that battery on the bottom is actually the secondary slice battery. The regular 9 cell one is the same as yours I think, where it's like a tube sticking out of the back (not the older one that bends upwards and prevents you from moving the screen back).
