I love keyboards
« on: Tue, 11 September 2012, 08:23:48 »
Hello geekhack,

I bough yet another expensive keyboard last week (after a Steelseries 7g, Filco and razer blackwidow). This time i went for the topre realforce 104UB but now i'm thinking I should have bought the happy hacking keyboard pro 2. Don't get me wrong i really like the realforce but there's something sexy about that hhkb layout. I'm gutted.  What should i do?
Anyone from UK who would like to trade maybe?

You should have bought the HHKB2, I love mine and I am hopefully getting a type s this month :D

Sell the 104, might be a bit tricky as it is a full-size board and get the HHKB2.

Welcome to Geekhack!

Have you kept all of the other keyboards?  If so, nice collection :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
