60% keyboards work really well. Why don't we see any laptops with 60% keyboards?

The new Apple MacBook Pro missing the function keys made me realize this. If you could use the function keys with fn-# then it would at least be like a 60%, but I believe this isn't how it will work, although maybe you could do that with software.

It got me thinking that someone should kickstart a netbook with a 60% keyboard in it. Might as well make it a proper mechanical, too. Nice and thick, but very small and portable.

Stuff like pic related show people are often dissatisfied with laptop keyboards and use a mech with them anyway. That one laptop with the mechanical keyboard aimed at gaymers was kind of poorly done, though.

Thoughts? Just throwing out ideas here and thought I'd post in /mkg/ instead of making a new thread.

>> No.57269572

After a few weeks of active interest and months of curiosity I finally got to check out a couple mechanical keyboards at a computer store.

I think the MX Blues are the switch for me. It's between them and the Browns but the click just seems right to me.

There's a Rosewill keyboard with MX Blue switches on sale for $80 Canadian. I'm tempted to go for it, but even though I really liked the mechanical keyboards at the store I have a hard time wrapping my head around paying that much for a keyboard, even though I fucking HATE my current keyboard.

That's the thing. I spend the majority of my life at the keyboard. The majority of the day, every day.

I'm looking at getting my first mechanical keyboard and I can't decide between black and brown MX. I type pretty hard so I'm kinda leaning towards black but it feels like they might be a little heavy for extended wasd use.

Ducky keyboards have OEM profile and are compatible with everything that has a cherry mount. Tai Hao is basically identical to OEM its just the top row is shorter. If you want a flat uniform look you could go for g20 (pic related) or DSA.
If you want something similar but has a shorter height then cherry profile or DCS is my suggestion. SA profile is taller and cylindrical so it might feel a bit different

Must rubberdome keyboards are tactile and have an actuation force of ~60g. Blacks also have an actuation force of 60g, browns are lighter at 50g. Blacks are one of the most popular mechanical switches even our cash registers have them so finding them for cheap shouldn't be an issue. The tactile bump on browns is pretty underwhelming compared to clears, but if you like linear switches but want a subtle bump then go for browns.

>> No.57277178

>>57276937

Gateron's tolerances are too loose for the two-part stems, making both of their clicky switches sub-par and inconsistent. They also don't bin off the assembly line very effectively, leading to larger inconsistencies within a single bag of switches.

Their browns and linears on the other hand aren't nearly as badly impacted by these things and the smoothness more than makes up for it.

Just avoid stuff like MX blues/greens and their clones, they're the typical "clicky" switches you instantly think about when you hear "mechanical keyboard".
Reds/blacks are linear and make no sound unless you bottom them out, for instance. Reds are very light, blacks are heavier.
Browns/clears have a bump midway down, just before they activate, but they don't make any additional sound unless you bottom them out either. Clears have a larger, more pronounced bump and require more force to activate.

And if you do find yourself bottoming out, add o-rings under the keycaps. These will prevent them from clattering (or at least somewhat reduce noise).
My Ducky Shine 3 with MX browns makes the same amount of noise as any generic membrane keyboard, it just sounds less cheap and plasticy.

Besides browns I've tried reds and Razer greens (MX blue clone), I feel like reds are a little bit too easy to bottom out.

As for possible keyboard recommendations, CM Storm Rapid-i seems to fit your criteria (80%, backlit, available in browns and reds, affordable) or maybe a Ducky One (available in 100% and 80% versions, a variety of outer case colors, backlight, and switch types, but some versions may be out of your budget)?

I used to think RGB lighting was the shit, but now I just turn it off. Honestly after getting a buckling spring keyboard I've pretty much settled down and I'm not interested in anything else at the moment. The tada 68 is a much better choice then the rs68. I was going to buy the RS model F for the layout, but for that price I might as well buy an original model F keyboard with much better build quality and better switches.

Has anyone tried the MOD switches for these? I'm looking for a stuffer switch than cherry blues, but I'm concerned about greens being too loud and I've never dealt with anything besides Cherry, Kailh, and Topre. I've heard clears are great and don't sound like gunshots with each keypress, but I'm also concerned about the Gateron version of clears. I've read they are linear(?).

>> No.57288301

>>57288099

Cherry clears are tactile but don't have a click mechanism, so they'll only clack when you bottom them out. Gateron are a different thing entirely, being super light linears (35g).

MOD switches are basically smoother clears.

The most tactile quiet switches are Matias ones, though.

That's what gets me. Greens felt too mushy at the bottom, so I dismissed them early. I haven't typed on buckling springs in a while, but I remember them feeling nice. Now I'm used to my generic $8 keyboard, so I suppose I gravitate to switches that feel like it.

Overall I was pretty underwhelmed by cherry switches. Should I just get a Unicomp and go beige, pick up a custom board with cherry switches, or just stick with what I've got and give up hope?

Not really. The only non-standard keys it has are three 1u keys in between the arrow cluster and spacebar and the 1.75u right shift. If you want to use a uniform profile that isn't an issue at all, you can just use a spare caps lock cap and any three random 1u caps for those. If you want a sculptured profile, well, most group buys will have an option to cover it that shouldn't set you back too much or leave you with a heap of excess caps.

Also, if you buy from PMK, you can add any specific caps you want onto an order for $5 each, when I bought my DSA set for an RS68 from them I just ordered 60% alphas, TKL mods and an extra 1.75u cap marked "Shift" and that covers everything.
