Like you can't get a light-up Unicomp keyboard (imo a feature because it feels gimmicky to me), which is a non-starter for a lot of people.
@Elizafox and no N-key rollover
@a_breakin_glass That doesn't bug me a whole lot, honestly. The older Model F's had full N-key rollover, but they were capacitive and not membrane-based. Wish they'd bring that shit back. It was the bomb.
@a_breakin_glass not for the N-key rollover aspect, but because they felt even better than the Model M's.
@Elizafox having tried neither, I can't really say
@Elizafox which is kind of saddening honestly
@a_breakin_glass They're not common, and only one manufacturer makes them in the entire world... and they're /not/ cheap by any stretch of the imagination.
@Elizafox not cheap sure
@Elizafox but at $94 there's probably more expensive keyboards
@a_breakin_glass No doubt.
@Elizafox I thought of lighted keyboards as a luxury until I ended up with one entirely by accident, and discovered how useful it is for typing in the dark.
I mean, I guess it's still a bit of a luxury, but it's not just shinyness; it's actually very useful.
@woozle it could potentially have use on a battleship type keyboard
@Elizafox I had to look up "battleship keyboard" to find out what it refers to, and.... it means any keyboard with a full set of keys?
