I used to have an AEK-II in the early 90s and I loved it. I completely agree that it was the last great Apple keyboard.

BTW, when I enter "dye sublimed" into google, it rightly says: Did you mean: dye sublimated

Okay, but the word that needs to be conjugated is not sublime, but sublimate. The process is not called dye subliming, but dye sublimation.

Swapping Matias click leafs into these creams makes for a really pleasant clicky switch.

To sublime (verb) plastic in order to take the dye you use a process (noun) called dye-sublimation, not dye-subliming. It is same as the difference between "to apply" (verb) and the "application process" (noun).

The, what's it called, past participle, of sublime is sublimed. You sublime dye into plastic. So it's sublimed dye. Put that in the customary antiquated word order associated with this, and you get dye-sublimed. What's so weird about that?
