Found a Compaq MX 11800 (one with the trackball from the late 90's early 00's), for 10 dollars on craigslist. About to pick it up now.

Apparently all the models have brown cherry mx switches. I'm pretty hyped.

Putting your mouse closer to your keyboard, reducing the angle between your hands.
It's more comfortable.

the distance between the keyboard and the mouse is the same, dufus. since the keyboard is narrower, the hands travel less, you win the width of the numpad.

>> No.53898011

>>53897977
Or the keyboard closer to the mouse.
When I had my numpad on the right my right arm was much more angled than my left arm. The QWERTYUIOP row was basically much more to my left so I can fit my mouse more comfortably.
Now I have the row straight in front of me and typing is very comfortable, and the mouse is in the same comfortable position anyway.
With a numpad you are kind of forced into positioning. If I had put the row right in front of me my mouse would've been too far away to be comfortable.

They'll be better than stock simply by being double-shot PBT. That on its own means some pretty serious durability.
In my experience buying chink keycaps there may sometimes be some minor molding errors, but they'd still absolutely be good enough to replace stock caps.

It's possible to make keycaps out of PBT and use ABS for the legends, you just need some specialized equipment and more careful legend typesetting to minimize problems.

Vortex even figured out how to do true double-shot PBT, like the ones in this picture. However, you can see the legends look really wonky and the very unique manufacturing process is difficulty and expensive. From what I heard they had to throw away around 30% because of too big defects.

I wouldn't count on fully PBT double-shots getting much better.
Having ABS just in the legends isn't so bad anyway. The surface of the legends will wear a bit quicker, lose texture and get shiny, but you would hardly notice unless we're talking like +10 years of use.

Of course, instead of missing keys, the spacebar sticks if I push it down all the way. Works okay if I don't do that, but it looks kinda dumb and is somehow noisier (upstroke on the stabiliser, I guess).

Hard to get a clean shot, it's dark here. Anyway, there's enough leftover cable between the wire and the plug, and I've done it in the past on a rubberdome, but I'd rather not do it here unless I absolutely have to, so for now I just taped it as tightly as I could, I'll see for how long the two keys don't shit themselves, then I'll decide. I just wish someone sold those usb cables though. I mean, they can be unplugged after all.

Well, both of these are exactly what I wanted. Seems like the keycool 84 has practically no availability for Canada (whats up with keyboard supply issues anyways?). However, the choc mini is actually available for purchase, exactly how I wanted it configured and is right in my budget. I'll do the due diligence of reading reviews but it looks to be a winner. Thanks.

>> No.53909387

Three tips for the Noppoo Choc Mini (as an owner)

- The PBT caps on the white version are quite nice (the black version has POM caps which will have a different, smoother texture)
- Make sure you get the latest model, you can tell by looking at the left modifiers. Make sure the ctrl, alt, and win keys are all the same size.
- If you ever feel like replacing the keycaps, you'll need a 1.75u right shift key (same size as the capslock key, these are relatively easy to find) and a 5.5u spacebar (this is very hard to find. there is a guy offering custom printed 5.5u spacebars on Shapeways though)

>> No.53909446

>>53909259
>>53909387
I'll keep that in mind. Also, turns out both the keycool and choc mini are on sale locally, lightly used, both for the same price. Is one immediately preferable over the other? Will that change if the choc mini turns out to be an older model?

>> No.53909582

>>53909446
The Keycool has a standard spacebar, but has small right modifier keys to compensate (which are much easier to find replacements for than the 5.5u spacebar). Most Keycools will also come with backlighting, while the Noppoo rarely comes with backlighting (make sure to ask the sellers). Of course, ask for pictures of the Noppoo so you can see if it's the newer or older version.

All Keycools come with PBT caps I believe (grainy texture) while the White Noppoo comes with PBT and the Black comes with POM (very smooth).

Make sure to ask what switches are in each. Keycool comes with Cherry or Kailh (not great Cherry clones), Noppoo comes with Cherry or Gateron (awesome Cherry clones).

I picked up my votex PBT doubleshot set for I believe around $20-30 shipped and the only defect I could find was that the left shift and one other key had noticeably lower legend fill and wasn't even with the rest of the cap. It's not obnoxious unless I focus on it and rub my finger on it. Some of the others might be not dead even but it wasn't noticeable to me with typing or gaming. Only when I autisticaly rubbed each one to see if I could feel it. They are actually my favorite set of keycaps. Even more so than new vintage cherry double shots or the realforces PBT.

Not the other guy, but I got some Matias QC as well.
If your gf isn't sleeping in the same room as you're typing, it really isn't about the switch you get. The case is way more important.
A high-profile case with a lot of space will resonate more and be rather loud. A good example is the case of the Pok3r.
There is a lot of space beneath the PCB, which results in the keyboard being quite loud. Also you should get something to put under the keyboard (pic related), it quiets it down a lot.

Even clicky switches aren't that loud in the correct case and the frequency of the click itself is dampened by a simple wall/door a lot already.

That being said, the Matias QC are an excellent switch, but not as quiet as one would think. Their keywobble makes them quite hearable and not as quiet as they could be. Lubed, tactile Cherry switches in a good, low profile case aren't much louder, imho even quieter. But then again you have to desolder the switches to lube them, so if you don't want to do that, go with the Matias QC.

KBP makes quite good keyboards. If you're interested in upgrading the case, Tex makes some CNC aluminium TKL ones that fit it and look quite nice. It will also quiet the keyboard down (a lot).

The reason people aren't Autismal in Switzerland about guns is because Swiss people are, for the most part, learned on the subject and owe their country service through conscription. In the United Ststes guns are thought of as taboo by a large majority because they seem to think guns will just kill people by sitting on a desk; I shit you not I've had people tell me they think a gun will go off simply because it's loaded and leaned against a wall.

This extremely fucked perception of guns, unfortunately, causes retaliation on our part to defend our hobby, but I'm just shit posting on 4Chan. That being said, I know more than enough French-speaking Swiss people who absolutely hate guns as well; unsurprisingly many of them don't know shit about guns and live in cities.
