sounds good that this GB will be organized better, Just making some stupid math here regarding the case.
For example PCB + ( diodes,resisors,chip,stabilizers etc ...) , metal plate, alps switches,keycaps will set person at around $250 . Then we have aluminum housing one with top and one without, perhaps bottom part $150-$170 if getting both bottom and top around $300.
This will set a GBer around $400 or $600, maeby we should have the option on acrylic case too for the sake of getting more people involved in the GB, the more the better especially when comes to GB from SP keycaps.
Just an idea since there is a guy who is already making TKL sizes for Filco, QFR, Ducky and his price are descent and the casing actually looks pretty nice with 3 layers and options for colors, and if you don't grab the keyboard and slam it from the ground I know it wont brake.... So durability is not an issue with acrylic as long as you don't use your keyboard for MMA lifestyle....
I think it would be better for the GB if it has 30 peeps with the alu casing and another 30 with acrylic instead of 30 only with aluminum case because others were discouraged to jump in because of the price.
Again this is an awesome and fresh start for something beautiful
