Hmm, IJKL would be slightly better than OKL; but still better than WASD (for me) and it does put PgUp/PgDn in a very nice location. I own a Poker (mx red) which is nice, but I like the layout on the KBTalking Pure better (the ANSI, small enter version).
Both the Poker and KBTalking Pure have a better layout than the HHKB, which wastes prime locations for things like PrtSc, and has the arrows in a horrible place. At that price point, the HHKB should at least have the 2nd layer programmable by the user.
At least they could have dropped the wasd thing at put the cursors on the home position. The HHKB is very logical: you have up and down in large steps (home, end), then smaller steps (pgup, pgdn) and finally the smallest step - the diamond arrow cluster. You can even do one-handed moving! That was made me finally realise how good this layout it. Before that I wouldn't want to buy it because I wanted vi arrows
