Discord announcement said that mid-September is the likely GB date.

It actually just got announced that the GB is being pushed back to October.

I suppose good things come to those who wait, looking forward to this one!

Not a lot of boards have ever peaked my interest, but along came the Alpine65.

Truly beautiful man, I can't wait for this to go on GB. This board deserves the recognition.

Good Luck with GB Bit, do us proud!

Is there any PCB out there that is going to be compatible with the board? I wish there was a solderable PCB that I could get.

I believe not. The PCB is customer made. I also wish to cop one solderable PCB, but it's not a deal breaker for me. Alpine65 E-White (& hopefully PC too) here i come!!!

Hoping to get in that 500 slots.

I'm also hoping to see more pictures of the Navy in person pics? I'm still a bit undecided if I should go for that or try for the safe choices of black or white. :-\

500 units is a pretty big number, isn't it? at how many do keyboards usually sell? i don't think they easily get to 500 so getting alpine shouldn't be that hard, but i may be wrong

I'd say this one's a steal for 300$ if it pushes through (fingers crossed), comparing to other 65% boards currently in the market this is tough to beat (gasket, layout, looks, included dampening). So shortage is really really possible - hopefully we get one before it happens, if it happens. (IMO)

Yep! The front height with the feet end up around the same as the NK65.

The design seems nice but some important information if missing.

What's the weight?
What's the typing angle?
Is the layout fixed? Will it support ISO? Split BS? Split LS? Bottom Row options?
Where's the port cutout? Will it use a daughterboard?
How will the badge attach to the case?
I second the split BS!

Looking at the prototypes, the PC version looks like normal clear polycarb (which I honestly prefer). Is that just the lighting, or is the smokey black PC not a thing now?

That prototype was wrong. The plate you see should be the color of the case, and the case should be the color of the plate.  :thumb:
