[Photos] Random keyboards, lovingly photographed

Muirium wrote:I'm your inverse. I have a 4K Dell display, but everything else (besides keyboards) is Apple.

I'm similar, yet different. At the office I have a dell 3-monitor setup, and a dell AT101W, and it is all connected to 2015 15" Macbook Pro. I don't mind the OS, as long as it has zsh and the tools I need, but the killer feature of macbooks for me is the battery life. Does anyone know any other laptop that can squeeze so much usage from a single battery charge? This is my second Mac (after a 2012 13" Macbook Pro I'm typing this on right now) and I have to say they are one of the two things where apple hype is more than warranted, other being iPad mini. The only thing I might consider to replace it is one of the new Surface Pros.

As for phones, that's a whole other ballgame, they have been boring for quite a while.

That photo is amazing! and very jealous that you get to use your SSK on the office :D I wish!

in the mean time i though it would be fun to compare the different shades of blue and prints on my TA blue caps, this because I noticed that one of my sets had a lighter shade of blue which I very much like better than the others and ends up changing the look of the keyboard quite a bit.

See if you notice the difference:

Scanned some images after I carried around the film undeveloped for half a year as always. Also does a mouse fit in a picture to the HHKB?

Nice! The color balance is a bit too greenish but except that, it's a great picture.

But then again it has much flavor because of its light setup!

Nice Kishsaver, mrDuul! Is it supposed to be industrial gray (it looks a bit off)? And more crucially, does it work? :evilgeek:

I've been playing with some Kaypro caps that I was gifted at a keyboard meetup. They work perfectly on an M0110. The red and blue keys have straight stems and so sit crooked compared to the others. It's still a nice concept, I think.
