Pros:
Nice shiny and hard-wearing aluminium
Flat keys
Used to be quiet :lol:

Cons:
Numpad is all bunched up into the main keys
Paint wearing off keys :x
No longer as quiet as it should be

it feels so good to sometimes do something that has a noticeable effect in the real world, and it also possibly makes people run away in disgust less fast, when they enter your room.

Logitech G11 <3

I like it because it's got nice media controls at the top, an easy shortcut to mute sound and 18 programmable keys on the left which have 3 different modes next to the MR button which allows you to record hotkeys and assign them to buttons on the go. I've got radio stations, apps, playlists and all sorts assigned to them.

Also, my keyboard is better than yours.

I have something like this (edited some buttons to match my keyboard):
Image

Notice two windows keys next to each other at left side olol. I lost the alt key somehow. i think i was vacuum cleaning and it got sucked in.. was too lazy to get it back from the bag...

And the hole at right side is simply because i hate those buttons: i always press them in accident + they are useless. so i just took them off instead (i do that in every keyboard if possible :-) )

I bought some similar keyboard smoth posted, it was flat as hell, actualy too fucking flat, it just didnt feel good to type, i couldnt feel very well when the button is down etc.

I like the "oldschool" keyboards as i am using now, anything fancier just makes me re-learn my 15 years of experience on typing... not worth it.

Thats a joke, right? I just wipe the surface with something you cant drink. But if it gets that dirty when my buttons doesnt get down anymore, then i would take the button off and clean it... taking off every button feels a bit exaggerated.

Edit: lol at those guys asking how to put spacebar back, are they totally handless or what... i think watching such videos just makes people dumber... cant figure out stuff on their own anymore.

My keyboard says "dell" on it. Really no interest in gaming boards.

I do, however, own a Sidewinder X5... MS's cheaper gaming house. I mean mouse. Damn that thing is big.
