SKCM Cream is an undamped switch, and should not be confused with the more common Alps SKCM Cream Damped damped tactile switch. SKCM Cream switches have a much lighter colored slider. They are most commonly found is NeXT Non-ADB keyboards with the smaller non L enter.
SKCM Creams found in Canon Typewriters have been reported to be heavier.
However, other enthusiasts, who have had both NeXT non-ADB keyboard and canon typewriters in their collections, disapprove this statement, clamming that SKCM Cream in both are identical. Thus, in order for the previous statement regarding the weight of SKCM Cream switches in different input devices to hold true, further testing (i.e. measuring force) needs to be carried out.
