The second round ends on Friday 1 December, 19:00 UTC. You can change your vote until the end of the round.
- Revenge's Beamship
- JP!'s fat brown Alps board
- Cherry G80-1800, the most attractive layout
- The pingmaster, for bringing vintage Alps into a nice layout with lovely high quality switches
- Winkeyless cherry g80's. Most aesthetically pleasing layout ever made (IMO). Vintage cherry mx switches. Decent case. And usually nice keycaps!
- JP!'s IBM 3741 Data Station / System 3 Barn Find
- ipreferpie's IBM 3277 Beamspring split spacebar disassembly. Just the whole story of how this came to be. Somebody from a completely different community coming here to sell a left over keyboard from a bunch of (to him) interesting commodore computers. He also posted this very nice disassembly thread and helped in creating the replacement pcbs to make these keyboards work.
- //gainsborough red label Zeniths. Because, well sexy red label zeniths
- Hansichen for the G80-2100 HAO prototype find
- Cyberovca's Tipro T141A, which revealed a previously-unknown period of Tipro's history and an undiscovered switch
- OldIsNew's Harris Smart Terminal
- The G80-0418 presented in that same thread as the G80-2100 HAO prototype find also deserves to be nominated. While it is not a prototype, it is noteworthy for being a very early Cherry G80 keyboard and for being Apple compatible.
The full results will be published at the end of the awards.
