looks like someone got him to pull a cap to confirm blues. It's purchased now. I'm interested to see internals from whoever got it!

Re: Odd Northgate Gold Label!

I saw this one this morning but didn’t notice the 1u until you mentioned it, haha. I offered the guy 160, but I don’t think he’ll take it. If it’s blues its not a bad deal at its current price though!

Re: Alternative blue alps switch?

The 101 actually only ever came with white alps - the only omnikey that came with blues is the gold label 102, and even some of those are early whites. There are definitely more than those two boards (102 / kb-101a) out there with blue alps, though! Take some time to do some research and you'll find...

Re: NEC PC-8801mkII SR

Negative - it can come with something else, but it's easily distinguishable by its caps. Look for the homing scoops if you want blue alps.

I hate my novatouch so much that I'm probably going to throw it away. I'm really shower typing with that keyboard. My cheap gmmk keyboard with cherry silent switches and sprit 50 grams springs lubed with krytox 105 oil is infinitely better. PM me and I'll give you a cool $10 + shipping instead =P

I definitely do not personally recommend you buy that board. I bought one when I was very new to the hobby and regretted it almost immediately. It does look nice, though.

Nice! It's a real treat to see the unyellowed case and caps. If only mine had been even half that nice. I saved them, but I have little hope of ever restoring them. BTW, Multitech is not necessarily older than Acer. From what I've read Acer was a marketing branch of Multitech for the US, but the Mu...
