Who would of thought that this would take the honour in being the BEST Alps Clone Keyboard, go figure.

Would you place this in the same league as Northgate's or am I making an ill-fated presumption?

What a great find, I love that layout. Gimme a 75% with that giant ass-enter key. I'm less a fan of the giant arrow key legends though, just doesn't sit right with me, but it's all preference.

NO, as you get older you desperately need a key pad hence ALL the full sized keyboards are simply PERFECT.

I now refuse to buy anything less than a standard 101 key keyboard and even my youngsters agree that it's far better having a valuable key-pad section than not having one around.

Maybe it's a 'young age' thing of wanting something smaller like a 60% or now even 40% sizes but those days are long gone for me. It's either having a minimum of 101 keys on a keyboard or it's 100% worthless :ugeek: .

Can confirm... that checkbook isn't going to balance itself ;-)
