So im guessing the buckling spring users are a small minority of this club and i will be dropping even father into the "oddity" zone of this websites users upon reciving said switch laiden keyboard tongue.gif

oh dear goodness... Alienware because apple is too mainstream, win7 classic because rainmeter too mainstream and retro is in, and buckling springs because cherry mx are too mainstream and buckling springs are retro.


im a for real hipser arent i?

On the topic of keycaps... any decent etailers for custom Topre caps? Looking to spruce things up a bit beyond just custom colored caps...

They've stopped production on Topre keycaps. You should pick up whatever sets you can find at the moment, elitekeyboards have sold out on most colors already. I have a feeling that they're just preparing for MX compatible Topre switches so you shouldn't be too worried about customization because Coolermaster already has a MX Topre prototype and it'll come out eventually. Not worth finding these Topre keysets atm imo

I'll probably cave and get a buckling spring board myself at some point. Some of my coworkers use them and love them. They're happy to have someone else in the company with clicky keyboards so they won't feel too lonely on bridges making all the clickity clack hehehehe smile.gif

as for the price, its marketing, limited amount of product nets a high price. Afterall mechanical keyboards are sort of a 'collectable' so that also inflate the price.

I guess I'm in the same boat as you. I look at them objectively and see $100+ on a piece of plastic the size of my fingertip. I can understand the high price on feng's silver snakes and caps like that simply due to "artisan crafting" and material cost, but not for limited edition plastic. no offense intended towards those who are into cc caps. I've spent loads of money on other things that plenty of people wouldn't agree with. to each their own. I'm just trying to understand what's up with those specific caps is all.


I'm with you on that.

I have the same mind set when it comes to collectibles in general--I've never really understood it.

To each their own, and I'm not knocking anyone else's hobby, but I'd just never get into rare collectibles.
Seems like you end up paying so much more than it's worth just because it's rare.
I can see justification more if it has some history or story attached to it, but not for things that are simply expensive because they are rare.

No man like... Macbooks are so mainstream. I mean every coffee shop, BAM macbooks everywhere

Libraries? MACBOOKS!

LANparties and stuff like that? Desktops, MSI and CLEVO rebrand laptops.

But alienware? Pfft now thats not even close to mainstream, like no ones ever seen a custom notebook before. It's so rare lol, and i NEVER see alienware laptops beside my own.
CrackBook Pros and apple devices? Everywhere, Alienware? Totally like not mainstream.

Lol and i listen to music that lots of people have never heard of and most the stuff i like is totally not mainstream.


I'm like totally a hipster.

You aren't a hipster if you don't listen to underground trash metal, own a mechanical KB (You already do)
Finally alienware isn't hipster-ish. Anything that isn't 1) Alienware 2) Apple will give you hipster status immediately biggrin.gif
