I think blue Alps prices are ridiculous, but keep an eye open for them and don't lose hope. I just got a NOS one for $80 USD.

Re: When you finally reach endgame.

That keyboard looks amazing! I have to say, apart from the giant price tag of Beamspring keyboards putting me off, I don't think they sound that great either.

I think the term mechanical is an easy way to comment on the key feel. Mechanical keyboards are associated with a crisp key feel whereas non-mechanical is associated with something that is mushy and imprecise.
