full size/1800 compact build suggestions
« on: Sat, 05 June 2021, 19:21:35 »
Hello friends,

Now that I've learned how to wbuild boards I thought it'd be cool to put together something special for my programmer little brother, unfortunately he needs either a full size or 1800 compact layout and I'm all about the 60/65%. Can anyone suggest something nice that I could build for him? Price isn't really an issue.

I know I've seen boards on Reddit before that had a numpad to the left of the typical board, does anyone know any of these that are still available maybe? I don't want to buy him a prebuilt, I would really like to solder and put this thing together myself.

Thanks very much, have a great weekend.

Check out The Key Company. They usually stock 1800 boards and other boards with number pads, but I believe they're out of 1800 boards at the moment.

 :thumb: good luck for your build, you can update your 1800 compact keyboard like make it work wireless bleutooth, or by frequency
 for the numpad, you can see this model using USB C:
