    It looks pretty neat... But the BIG question is - how good a keyboard is it? Are the keys responsive? Is it easy to type with or easy to play games with?

    I'll have to check it out in some fairs...

    I'm not going to buy a keyboard without trying it out first... It can all the wrong feel about it after I've paid.

    yeah, but like which keyboard...
    a cherry 6105 business keyboard - springy keys, nice touch and responce,
    or a 1st gen M$ Natural with buttoned keys
    or a new Dell keyboard with very loud but responsive clicks
    or a laptop keyboard with not a lot of responce or bounce...

    not trying to argue m8e, just I prefer a click with my keyboard, and i'm sure it is a nice keyboard, but at that price i really wanna have a touch before I buy
