Oh, I would take that in a shot. It's all about the biege
Fwiw, interested in grey too - steely, efficient, clean grey
Have not used a Topre board yet - in fact I've not even compared different weights of switches yet, so I'm not sure I'm best placed to comment there.
On fixed vs variable... again, am uninformed on that front. Is fixed better for some sorts of keyboard use and variable for others? Or is it just down to personal preference? On paper, variable looks great and, well, obvious!
Again as an inexperienced person in such matters - variable would certainly give the board a super-interesting feature - something to differentiate it perhaps.
Keyboard co seem like a great company - and stuff like this makes me more likely to deal with them in the future. Good stuff.
