What is the significance of that design?

Nothing in particular, just messing around with different placement of the orange keys trying to find something I like.

I havent owned a realforce in 6 months or so, but I sold it because I didnt like it. Felt like pressing a sponge. HHKB feels exact, tactile, and super nice. I dont know how it can be such a difference. It make me wonder wether i should give RF another try.

What model did you use? Was it a variable switch RF? I can't stand anything less than 55g on an RF. It feels like it was meant for the board. 45g and less just feel mushy on the plate mounted RF.

With that said, it feels like 45g is perfect for the plastic case of the HHKB.

Yup. I switched over and I'm never looking back. I do also agree with you that 45g is perfect for the HHKB

55g RF is the real deal~ Still waiting on the backordered white RF 55g.

Nothing special.... just stock apart from the double wrap (white and black) MDPC cable. I will be adding some grey or white modifiers soon, if anyone has some caps for me, let me know! May be interested in single black CC

Picked up a HHKB today. LOVE IT. The only thing Im uncomfortable with is the backspace. I guess thats something I will learn to use properly soon.
it took me very little time to get used to it -- less than one shift at work and when I went home i was hitting \ instead of backspace all night :P

I wish demik was still here
me too :( demik is our gollum, sneaking and spying but staying in the shadows

The backspace location is one of my favorite things about my HHKB. But I have it dip switched so it's right above the Enter key. I like that configuration so much, I created an AutoHotKey script to swap those keys on my other keyboards.

Is that the new 55g? Where'd you get the keycaps for just the top row? I like! Hopefully, you didn't have to buy a full set.

Yup...that's the new 55g.  It's a combo of 2 different keycap sets (lettered lime green and lettered white).  The lime green replaced the number row and the white replaced the stock grey modifiers.
