Thanks photekq, seebart ... it would feel even better if these boards are just a bit cheaper, but everything's expensive about genuine Topre :( . But the feel is incredible.

Here's another ... Realforce 87UW55 (model:SE08T0), all 55g with Topre's baby blues or powder blues or whatever you call that blue (these are Japan-made Topre caps distributed by Leopold; model:XF0100KT#2):

Oh WOW two beauties from two worlds. Hmm the color of those topre caps looks great on the beige case! Very nice. But your Burroughs is even more impressive mr_a500! What a battleship. And a rare one at that. Looks very impressive! Good pictures too. Both of you!

It's rare, but I think Cindy still has some - for $25.

(...heavy, but not metal though - top is thick plastic)

Nice example for explaining focal plane and depth of field.

Oh neat, that's what it looks like clean. Mine is still waiting for some attention. I think it uses Keytronics foam and foil switches. The foam feels dead on mine.

Yes, foam & foil. On mine, the foam feels a bit flat, but not totally dead. I have replacements though, if necessary.

Might have potential. Several recent ones here do.

Get cropping!

great shot because of how the light is hitting those beautiful keycaps. I also see a header potential in there. ;)

First off, quick setup at school. Spacebar on my laptop doesn't want to work properly and my right shoulder is screwed up, this works great.

Secondly, I pulled my 1390120 out of the garage and started using that on my desk again. I need to find a few keys with the missing Lotus 123 labels but it's mostly complete.

Yeah right that was planned...yellowed spacebar matches cream Alps perfectly! :D But that one salmon slider ruins the whole picture. :0

Tataa! It is here, the Realforce cable from Pexon I won at the DT awards! I do not find the threads of the awards, so I am going to post some pics here in this thread. The cable seems to be right from the ISS space laboratories, or I am sure they use the same cables for their space shuttles. It is out of Teflon and Carbon!

This is the complete keyboard, my Realforce 87UW. If you use these Topre keyboards, you will throw away all your "tactile" Cherries :)
