Hey gang,

Out on the used market and saw this. A quick search on the net does not tell me anything except that Maxi switch company no longer exist and there is one post asking about reprogramming the keyboard on a CAD forum.

So i grabbed it anyway. At least I would be able to contribute st to the wiki, and in the future when someone encounters this they would know what they get into.

On the way home atm so just a quick snap at this, will update this more when get home.

Update:
This keyboard is actually huge!! Look at this compaing to my Dell 101, which is quite big already. So it seems like every since I sold that shi**y Otemu switch TKL keyboard to pursuit the right way of the keyboard, I just keep getting bigger and bigger kb. I soon need a new table.

It is dome with slider keyboard, or Maxi switch if you will. Very nice keycaps though, and seems to be cherry profile. I slapped one on my g80-3000 and it fits but I have not tried anything further.

Good thing that i get from this board is the keycaps to replace the german ones on my cherry. Not bad. And I think I will go over to wiki to make a contribution regarding this. Cheers!

So it was in Dvorak layout when you got it? Interesting

Yes, which is a little odd because the keys are definitely in a cherry-like profile for a querty design.

Do you happen to have a programming manual for the Maxi-Pro? Or just instructions you can share?

The instructions for the Maxi-Pro II keyboard should be the same as for the Gateway AnyKey keyboard.
