newbie here
« on: Fri, 24 August 2012, 16:07:25 »
A coworker introduced me to the world of mechanical keyboards and I am thinking about getting a HHKB Pro 2 Otaku (i guess HHKB isn't fully mechanical). Some people are calling me crazy for wanting a $300 keyboard but I'm digging the different layout (been practicing with Lite2).

Seems like there's a good community here. Never knew this kind of community existed before but I LIKE IT!

Welcome to wallethack!  You are now poor.

I like that you are going straight for the jugular with the HHKB. ;D

It's an amazing keyboard if you like the layout.
