Takes 14-15 to bottom out on letter keys, 12 for the enter key, I think 11 or 12 for the escape key, 14 for the arrow keys.

it took 69.6g to depress the H key on my newly cleaned dell quiet key RT7D5JTW
67.4g for the up arrow
64.3 for the enter button
61.8g for the space bar

aHumanBeing so random tidbit of information about dimes. I worked at Sears for about 5 years and they literally NEVER had dimes. They simply wouldn't get dimes from the bank. They said something about dimes being too expensive to have in the store. So I learned to count massive amounts of Nickels...I f-ing hate nickels. If anyone wants to get nickels then go to any Sears and they always have tons of them.
