OMG!!! want!!! badly!!! hnnnnngg!!!!
ok, reddit orgasimc way of talking out of the way... 1800 is my favorite layout (working on the plans for a custom as we speak) and adding Topre to it is the best thing I can imagine.
But, as there is always a "but", this is not a classic 1800 layout.
The fact that they added Print Screen, Pause, Scroll Lock, Home, End as FN commands is brilliant as it makes the keyboard even more compact and resulting in 98 keys
Now the things that bother me about it:
1. Why don't Leopold add media control on their Topre keyboards? those are the only things missing from the FC660C to be perfect.
2. I do not like the positioning and the size of the FN keycap. I think it would have been way better to be 1U, instead of the Ctrl.
3. I am also not convinced by the use of a full sized + key on the numpad. But this is mitigated a bit by the use of the FN layer commands.
4. As OO2 on Deskthority said: "I wonder why they didn't go with similar font and legends that they used on the FC660C... It looks like they have re-used a lot of Realforce's crappy legend caps like for 'Backspace' and 'Enter' keys. They looked much nicer on the FC660C IMO."
