Re: What made laptop manufacturer think it okay to use a chiclet key!

Thinness is one of the most important factors of laptops. Boomers will disagree and use their heavy chunky laptops on their legs. But I feel like whatever makes a laptop thinner is the right step to go to. I don't enjoy chic keys but if the laptop is light and thin then I don't care about missing s...

All they care about is copying Apple, caring more about "thin and light" then actual build quality, and slapping massive, flimsy widescreens on everything that flex like crazy and are a portability nightmare. The Chiclet keyboard started with IBM...

Just a heads up, the keyboard/switches feel fine. No clue what original buyer was talking about. Maybe his fingers are rattled from using Nexus sliders.
I think this guy(the buyer) use too much Cherry MX and Rubberdome lol

What a shitty system. Early bids are usually to be sneered at, but in this case it might have helped the seller’s confidence.

Can't you just replace the switches in a mouse though to the ones you like?
I wish that possible but I heard that a Chinese Omron and Japanese Omron have the different fixed pin. Logitech Mice could be possible but I'm not sure about the other brand.

Re: What's Wrong with a Thrift Shop?

That true, but I lived in the US and I still cannot find any Northgate Omnikey. If I do then I would keep it until I die.
In other hand, Cherry G80-1000 is so rare in the US!

Chyrosran22 live in the best city for a Vintage Keyboard though. I understand that because he lived in Netherlands. while in the US, it's so difficult to find a Vintage Keyboard like Northgate Omnikey.
