[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 658

post #6571 of 36879
I've been in the club for a good long while but have yet to officially join. I have a number of excellent mechanical keyboards: traditionally, when I purchase a computer, I also purchase the appropriate model of keyboard from Unicomp. For my MacBook Pro, the keyboard is a Unicomp SpaceSaver M, and for my HP desktop and my Cray CX1, I use a Unicomp Classic (also known as a Customizer), all of them beige. I also own a Maltron. My business computers, used by my employees, also have Unicomp boards.

I plan to get some light-blue keys for my Unicomp Classic: some Caps-shaped Ctrl keys, and some Ctrl-shaped Caps and Alt keys, since I tend to re-configure my boards.

You thought you could just slide that in unnoticed, didn't you? tongue.gif What kind of specs do you have on that and what do you use it for?

Bought a max-configured one used, for about $50k, and now use it as a general purpose workstation and Web server, although I tend to use it for e-mails and Web browsing too. It's a pretty cool computer, though somewhat boring in appearance. Fast, too. Eight blades running in parallel.

I didn't know about Cray's reputation for cool machines and at that time thought they were just a smaller rival for HP or IBM servers.

You have a lot of money to burn my friend.

I have them as well and strongly recommend them for their feel and durability over ABS if you have the extra cash ($48ish for 104 key set, iirc).
They are the only replacement keys I've ever purchased, but I'm sure someone can explain options more.

Yep, I was actually planning on buying the blank set of white PBTs from E-sports Gaming equipment.

I see. I think I may just go with the blacks, seeing as how this one I'd like to use for gaming. And what mcpetrolhead said about the feel is intriguing.

Eventually I will get some browns for the office. c:

Posted this earlier in the Art/Graphics thread:

I made these Cherry switch icons for mechanical keyboard aficionados:

Popular consumer switches only (of course I can make the others if anyone wants them)
I'm thinking case badges cool.gif
