    Got one ! Not perfect, yet much better than standard.
    We need someone to show the way in the laptop market. There's no reason not to.

    I'm surely not the only developer here who uses a Kinesis Advantage2 keyboard. I've been using it or one of its predecessors since the mid-90s.

    Unless someone designs such switches in a standard housing, it makes little sense to make such a design as it locks you out from different switches with different feel. I'm not interested in a keyboard that's not linear as I don't like having any tactile bump when I type.

    If you're desperate, SK 8855 already exists, but has been out of production for a while and used ones tend to be too expensive for that they are.

    What the hell, i hope it's not a mechanical keyboard with RGB gamerfaggotry vomited all over it.

    to a certein extend yes. but desktop (thelios case), software is good and their spirit is right - afaik they are about to develop their own non clevo lineup.... I'm sure this will take some time.

    yes true the actual thinkpad series has some good chiclet ones but as pointed out by you not compareable to the pre-chiclet generation.....now we have 10 years(?) of chiclet and almost no improvement ...more or less. the pushing down feels better but the "gap and edge" design is still the same
