Mini keyboard with Cherry ML switches

I am not sure if I'm interested in this one in particular, but it is good to know we have options. The 'board looks kinda cool though, but on the spendy side.

What I'd like to see is blue cherries in a HHKB layout.  That would be nice!!  (if I could have the exact key feel of my SMK-88 in a HHKB layout, I think I'd have keyboard nirvana)

Xsphat -- what is the feel on this keyboard? How does it compare with black alps... the size is great and I do need other options LOL.  Like you -- I am  a fan of mini boards.  What is the price on this?

why dont you just turn an SMK-88 into an HHKB using autohotkey?

Show me a key remapper that can physically resize/move/etc several of my keys.  :)

Swapping the backspace and \| key might help...but the one thing I like about the HHKB Pro now is that it requires ZERO software key remapping for me.

The board is too spendy at $105, bu the Cherry ML switches are nice, though the travel is short on them. You should buy an HHKB Pro 2 and joint the club.
