It doesn't look all that impressive to me aside from the programmable keys. (Pad printing for one)

I think this is the only mechanical keyboard with Alps that can support NKRO since the Filco Zero is discontinued. it retails for $199. it's a tank it weighs almost 5lbs and has the functionality of one you can change the layout from dvorak to colemak, create macros and change the debounce time (repeat rate) without the use of any drivers. I was surprised there was no interest given it was black and had a windows key unlike the Northgate Omnikey Ultra. you can tell it hasn't been used much because the pad printing is still on lol

Space bar was a bit shiny, but otherwise good looking shape. Never heard anything about that board until now.

Nah, you can even see it on the right hand side of the 4th picture down, as well as the first.

it can't be that old I think CVT used Cherry MX switches in the Avant Stellar until recently.

I know it's not that old because just the spacebar is shiny, and nothing else. It still has a bit more use into it than I'd prefer if I was buying.

in other news, my bank account took a nice hit, ordered a macbook pro, keyboard and electric toothbrush this past week...
I got the Ultimate version recently and it's awesome, it made me realize how bad my touch typing is. Just be ready for the finger print magnet of a bezel and the clickyness of the clicky clicks .

On the topic of technique, do any of you bottom out certain keys? I find myself pressing the larger keys harder; ones like space, enter, backspace, and tab. I could understand bottoming out the spacebar with my thumb, but I mash down backspace with my pinky when I use it. Wierd .

As for gaming on blues, I don't find them annoying at all. I can (after a bit of warm up) find the sweet spot where the switch resets, and spam it all I want. I can see how a linear switch would be more convenient, as you don't have a "floating" actuation point, but this works for me so I'll stick with it until the urge to buy another keyboard overcomes me.

My next choice after thinkpads would be Dell. Not their consumer line, which sucks, but their business line, which at least still have trackpoints on some of their models. If I'm not going to have a decent keyboard on a laptop, I'll at least make sure it comes with a nipple.
I mean for the other features. They have a lot of nice little touches, and the OS is very good. I think the lack of trackpoint would annoy me before the keyboard. Also, I found that the football pitch-sized touchpad got in the way when I was trying to type.

I find the Apple Aluminium desktop keyboards to be pleasant to type on, although I have noticed that the Macbook Pro's ones aren't quite as sharp. The ones on the standard Macbook feel terrible, but it is possible that this was because I tried it in a store, compared with the Pros which some of my friends have. Then again, the desktop ones I have tried were well used college computer ones.
