I'm really interested to see the underglow since the feet of the keyboard suspend the bottom housing off the desk surface. I wonder if enough light shines through to play on the desk.
How does one become so interested in a thing like keyboards? When you realize you use a keyboard more than any other tool in your life.

I'm having such a hard time deciding whether to go with Black or Space Gray. Might have to buy two  :)).

Black goes with everything! If there were rose gold I'd be tempted but it's just so easy and effortless to match any and all keysets (in my opinion) with black; some better some worse, but they all work in their own way.

Well not trying to tempt you or anything, but unless something changes Rose Gold is listed as an option in the post haha.

But yeah, Black is definitely the safe option and looks nice. I really want Space Gray, but Black would probably look better with my favorite keyset (Nantucket Selectric). And it's not like I dislike Black, it's just the Space Gray is more unique and would probably look better with the GMK keyset included in the premium kit.

*gets popcorn* I love fights on forums, so passionate!

Or you missed a 3rd assumption, at the time I did not have time to reply back to you  :))

If your argument is based on the semantics related to a word that was adopted by the hobby then there's not much discussion to be had. I feel like big bezels are an infinitesimal part of why gaming keyboards are regarded as bad within the mech community and making a post like your 1st on this particular thread to address the people who're hypothetical being hypocrites was moot, that's my only point to be made. Maybe I'm wrong and you have more than anecdotal evidence that warrants what you said.

OH. I swear that wasn't there before. Maybe it was. Well, I don't think I can afford two but I might as well try rofl

Hoping for some more pictures of the built prototype, 2 more days of the week to go if we're still on track for the launch. Awwyizz.

I think this last one is actually of the original M67 comissioned by aaaaaaaaamos.

Was that M67-A ever made available for sale? I love the renders of it on Rama's page...
