Scorpius-M10 Mechanical Key Switch Keyboard

"The original IBM PC keyboard was the most rugged and reliable in the industry, and the excellent tactile and audible feedback of its mechanical key switches became legendary."

I don't normally get excited about keyboards, but I'm gonna have to check one of these out. My last classic IBM keyboard died about 10 years ago and I've really missed it.

Oh sure! Make fun!

Look, I admit that the first thing I learned to type on was an old Remington typewriter that had a keystroke long enough to teach a guy how to throw fastballs. But the fact is, once you get used to that tactile feedback, it can make a big difference in your typing, particularly if you are a touch-typist and you are transcribing something from a printed document onto the screen, so you aren't looking at what you are typing.

LOL. I was serious. tactile feedback is what made me buy my G15 keyboard...and it has helped my hands get a bit better and eased the pain i felt in my handsby such a large amount i was amazed.

Typing fast for long peroids of time on a soft keyboard only really works twitch muscles, which are only part the muscles that are in your hand. Extended use can lead to loss of grip strength and numerous other issues. Having a keyboard with a bit of feedback is a good thing!

I quite like my Saitek Eclipse, problem is that the keys are very soft so it's not very good for my muscles i think if this keyboard ever broke i'd go for a G15 or something like that with a bit more bite in terms of feedback.
