Thought this was kind of a cool find, who's in the area?

I love the key feel of the HHKB Pro 2, and definitely like the design improvements, like the keycaps having a slight texture to them.

But I gotta say I like the keycaps on the older HHKB better!  They are about half the height so their typing surface is actually a little bit bigger...  I find I do not hit the wrong key as often on the older one, especially when using my pinky on the edge keys.  They also have a slightly shorter travel.

I kind of wish my HHKB Pro 2 had the same smooth feeling keyswitches but with the keycaps and the slightly shorter travel that the older HHKB has.

On a side note, has anyone ever typed on one of the new HHKB Pro HG version?  Does anyone know how much these sell for and if they can be imported yet?

All I can find on the net is talk about the Japan Special Edition one with the lacquered keys.  with a $4,000 pricetag =O

I imagine the 'standard' HHKB Pro HG is much more reasonably priced.

This post made me think for some reason it had Topre switches, my bad...

This board is not so terrible while Lite2 is totally garbage.
Some people prefer this fujitsu switch than Topre switch,
they feel Topre 45g on HHKB pro has too much tactile.
In the end all HHKs are rubber dome including Topre one as you know :)

It seems to be good shape. But $150 might be too much for this.

Is this the famed peerless?
