Otherwise I will just have to hope someone who got one decides they want to part with it.

The Kishsaver is cool, but, personally, I wouldn't drop that much on one, especially one in that rough of condition and that may be broken (since none of them are tested, it can't be guaranteed to work). Remember, the kishsaver still isn't a working keyboard as of yet. Some people are trying to figure out something like a Soarer's mod for it, but until that happens, it's just a brick sitting on your desk or shelf. If I was going to blow that kind of money, I'd grab a Model F AT or SSK. Those you can at least use.

Of course, if you want it just for the novelty, go for it. There are also some other interesting novelty boards out there like beamspring keyboards (which should finally have a workable controller) and stuff like that.

I am just trying to see what people are willing to pay for it, I don't even care if it's broken tbh and I probably won't bother buying the controller that is currently being made for it. He is selling it untested with dents in it so I am just hoping people won't want to spend all that much on it. Someone in the Netherlands put in a bid of 60 euros fast and put lol next to it and I can't tell if they are seriously interested in it or if they are just doing it to mess with people. I can imagine the shipping from the us to the Netherlands isn't going to be cheap at all (this KB is over 5 pounds, its solid metal) so that is why I think he is just doing it to do it and has no real interest.

Who knows. :/

I tried convincing a friend to go mechanical and he said he hates my caps, he prefers the feel of flat caps with a rubber texture. I must've shook my head at him for 20 min.

can someone remind me why cc's command such high prices? I just don't see the appeal to the level it's at for some reason.

Price is dictated more by what people are willing to pay for them than what it's actually worth. People will pay $150+ for a Filco so that's what the price is, people will pay $200+ for a CC so that's what the price is etc etc.

allow me to rephrase;
what is it about cc caps that makes people willing to shell out a bill or two for them?
