Re: Update! HHKB Pro BT top condition + Hypersphere Silencing Rings

I just guesstimated the price without looking up what they ask for it right now - so now with an update.

Update! HHKB Pro BT top condition + Hypersphere Silencing Rings

Hey, I am going to sell my "endgame" keyboard. Honestly, look up my last posts and see how my activity has declined since owning this beauty. I installed Hypersphere silencing rings. The feel and sound is perfect to my ears. I am selling the keyboard because I now travel a lot and am working on a te...

Ah, I don't care too much about the XPS anymore. Had an XPS2015 though 5 years ago - first the harddrive died (got it repaired), then the GPU after 2 years so no warranty (had it repaired), then the motherboard. But the point where your heel of hand lies below the keyboard - I hope you know what I a...

Lenovo finally features Thunderbolt 3 and Kaby Lake. Somehow the T470s isn't at their website, but I will get one in February I think.

No, this hasn't happened (yet). But the prices are very stable and a little bit higher than expected with the 2015 Macbook still in sales.

Unfortunately we can't hope for 16:10 :( Always liked that about my Macbook. But at least they have 14" screens.

I'll probably get the T470s.

It heavily depends on the alloy that is used. Some sorts of brass don't tend to oxidate much, others are really going green. In the watch world that's a recent trend. Yet the bottom plate is always made out of steel or titanium - there seems to be a problem with prolonged skin contact, concerning al...

Wait for the newest XPS 13 release at least. They have still problems with coil whine as it seems! I would be very annoyed by this. They said they would handle it till the end of the year with a new motherboard revision... but time will tell. I am waiting for CES 2017 (3-4 weeks?) until some new lap...

Yeah, it's better with the rings. That's for sure. However I could clearly feel the bump initially.

Take a look at the force curve. 0.5mm takes away the most of the bump since the beginning is the steepest part of the curve.

My pbt spacebars were soundy too. Thought it was my personal HHKB since I own the BT version. Try a thin foam pad as Hking suggested, should solve the problem. (I was to lazy to try that.)

It is 0.5mm. Ask Hypersphere. And yes, I can definitely feel it. The tactile bump on my HHKB is nearly gone and barely noticeable.

Of course it interferes with the collapsing of the dome!! It takes away 0.5mm of travel - that means it depresses the domes at 0.5mm and hereby you are taking away necessary actuation force. Take a look at the force-travel-curve of topre: if the dome is pre-depressed 0.5mm, there is waaay less bump ...

They shouldn't be close though. I though type-s felt more or less exactly like the normal HHKB? I have a clear loss of tactility with the hypersphere rings (although that's good since the HHKB was too heavy for my RSI).

I thought this was a joke. Can anyone tell me why exactly this is a thing?

If there is seriously someone who thinks Macs don't have a right mouse click or you cou...

Linux doesn't help if you want to use any "normal" programs like Office 365 or stuff, I myself need that **** because the documents I work with have to be compatible to other users.

Yeah, the touch bar might be really good. No question. But there you are - again captive of the Apple eco system. What do you do if you have a Macbook Pro that you want to dock at your workplace or at home? If it really feels broken, you'll have to buy a Apple keyboard with it (that isn't on the mar...

What most people seem to forget: adapters, especially the complex ones, produce problems themselves and sometimes even fail. Just look at the ratings in the Apple store and Amazon. I'll give you an example, of course: I wanted to buy the thunderbolt to ethernet adapter from Apple. So that the two st...

Likewise, if you need to plug into a display, printer, ethernet adapter, stereo system, etc., you’re likely to be at home, where you can leave everything sitting on your desk. The stuff needed on the road (say, at a coffeeshop) is going to be no more complex than on any other laptop. 2) They are se...

What sucks about the adapters is: 1) For goods sake, I don't care how this this laptop is when I have to constantly carry around this plane-sized thunderbolt 3 adapters or a power brick! 2) They are selling you this Thunderbolt 3 laptop stuff for an extra already. But then you have to pay at least 1...
