    I never understood the point of Winkeyless. Is this for Apple/linux/ users who detest windows?

    It's for aesthetics, and OG cherry set compatability.

    Wow, that's.... pretty high shipping to EU for using such a mediocre shipping provider. I actually thought about ordering but that kinda turned me off.

    I'm happy to see that you brought Matrix GB here!

    1. what kind of alu is used? Is there any better pic of the anodization? (Has this already been ran in China?)
    2. Is PCB / Plate supporting ISO?

    1 China GB ended yesterday with 66 sets sold. I would upload more sample pictures later and confirm with the team detailed spec of alu used

    I noticed that in some shots there's an Abel+ logo on the back accent plate (the little one) and in some it's just clean with no logo. Is it possible to have it clean with no logo?

    If you do prefer a blank nameplate let me ask if they could put an additional blank one in your set.
