Sounds a bit like sunken cost fallacy to me! The cost of buying a new PCB and case and reusing the switches and caps is probably still lower than the cost (and more importantly, time!) to design a new PCB, prototype it, buy 10 of them, [...] for this bespoke case. But I understand where you're coming from.Muirium wrote: ↑When is a keyboard still a keyboard?
I’ve no purpose in buying another MX board. Indeed, I’d rather just shift these parts. Replacing the lot of them with nothing feels more efficient than buying vaguely related shit, in addition.
About the Dell: You could just use an in-line converter instead of a full replacement controller since all of the keys would send scancodes.
