Just bought a nice HHKB Pro 2 for a decent price (£170)

someone already has bidded that, I'm betting it's the seller using a different account trying to drive up the price of a mediocre cherry keyboard (my opinion)

I find it's easier to do it with a dremel as they are smaller and lighter to hold but a drill press would be your best option if you have the luxury. And yes you can modify the flipper arrangement to suit either ANSI or ISO as the underlying membrane sheets have an identical layout. Replacement full...

So I've been forced to use Mac OS for over a week now and being a life-long Windows and DOS user I of course absolutely didn't understand the point of it at all xD .

You get the new keyboard layout which really hurts for a bit ... but it's neat in the backlit version.
Or you could put a USB 3.0 express card in the t420 like I did, works great!
