My 680 was $540 when I got it, and that was used and from a seller on OCN, if I'd bought a new one here it would've been over $600 IIRC.

Also, hello Tator. wave2.gif

Hush, I'm not here. 

 

In other news: Paradigm has good news coming. Spoiler alert, he already knows what it most likely is.

Same.
Well that's a bit different. Those keycaps won't make my keyboard function any better (though you could argue the feel and sound might improve).
Dropping $90 on new caps which are pretty much an aesthetic upgrade is a lot different.

Nothing against it, as I'm planning to buy some new keycaps myself, but that's more than I'd be willing to spend.
For right now anyways tongue.gif

Oh, and I have a 670 as well, so somewhere close to 400 when I bought it (380 or so I think).

As you stated changing key caps will change the visual appearance, possibly the sound timbre of using the keyboard, and the possible change in feel of the key surface depending on material it's crafted form are correct. There's also the shape, height, and angle of the key cap surface as well which will alter the typing experience as well. Is it enough to justify the cost of a set of custom key caps? That's purely a personal preference.

It can be likened to the custom hand crafted key cap and it's related prices a few pages back....to some the difficulty getting them and the price they cost are worth it, while others don't see it as worthwhile. To me it's one of the beautiful things about the enthusiast community, there's so many different facets to explore and delve into and some days I think we're merely the tip of the proverbial iceberg

Binned for power consumption and heat production is a real cause. The lack of a market is a fake cause (not really, they have to make money somehow, but it is crappy I agree). What you have in your laptop is just a binned 7870 on a small PCB I'm almost certain for twice the MSRP.

I think mobile processors are high binned, plus you pay for the mobility.

My filco gets here tomorrow.

I think I am going to get a keycap set from unicomp for the kishsaver, they said they could hook me up for the odd keys that are missing, once again unicomps customer service is just awesome. You get answers in just a couple hours most times.

the 7970M is a Thames chip which is based on the WIMBLEDON XT chip, which both the thames and wimbledon are based on the Pitcairn, But the thames chip has locked voltages on the VRAM and the card has rather limited power overall.
its similar to a 7870, but its really limited. I just dont get why the price is so absurd.



OH LIKE SO
my best friends are gamers too, we go to lan parties and stuff and we all have mechanical keyboards right? Well this was the end result of my friend Tom getting a hold of that Model M
