Ah, you can also upload some ASMR typing demo videos using the prototypes with sexy background music.
Of course with nice switches such as lubed vintage blacks.

Then we can spending our time positively with anticipations to the build.

Re: ISO users

I'm not an ISO user, I have to ask out of curiosity:

Which (right hand) finger do you hit the ISO Enter with?
1. Pinky?
2. Ring?
3. Middle?

Pinky has to reach further for an ISO enter than for an ANSI enter, but there are more up-and-down row leeway as the ISO enter crosses two rows.

To minimize finger movements during "typing" inputs, I recommend DataHand and OrbiTouch.

But I think a Mint-condition Symbolics keyboard can go higher - and given the switches, the caps and the company behind this keyboard design are all now historical legends - definitely will get an even higher price in the future.
