And the Deck is better than the ABS M1 in virtually every way.
the heavy means need more weight on it when typing?

Fukkas actuate between 60-70g and bottom out at 100g.
Cherry MX Clear actuate at 55g and bottom out at 100g.
Cherry MX Black actuate at 60g and bottom out at 80g

the Fukkas in the ABS M1 actuate at the highest.

the obvious choice is the Linear model.

ok nice info...i type alot too.. game alot too.
MX black looks like a very good choice for me..so i will get linear..not the tactile right.?

thanks again Imnop

right. if your fingers can tolerate the Fukkas either Cherry MX Black or Clears will be a good choice. but if I were you and owned the ABS M1 I would choose Cherry MX Blacks because Cherry MX Clears and Fukkas have similar characteristics ie they are both high force and have a tactile point I would want something different.

Hey guys, is this Cherry keyboard a mechanical?

The reason I ask is because I have access to one up at work and wanted to know if it was worth the hassle of bringing it home.

3M Silicone Wrist Rest. it's similar to the one EliteKeyboards sells but much cheaper.

Do you like squishy or hard? I don't understand hard ones, lol. Either get the one linked above, or just go to best buy or something and try a few out. I have a random no-name squishy from BB that's been working great for about 4 years.
