so a 12$ keyboard? sounds like someone loves using some absolute shit
I use a $5 IBM Model F. Don't let me dissuade you though, I'm sure this exorbitantly-priced chinese plastic will make you the god of fortnite or whatever
Oh quite an uneducated expert we got here. May I enlighten you to the fact that a 5$ Model F is not something realistic for the rest of the 7 Billion+ out there besides you and new Model F run from around 100$ -300$+ and restored ones go from 400-500$ upto several hundreds?
May I tell you that the Model F as a starter came out as a package with the IBM System/23 Datamaster that costed 25000$ in today's value and the board itself was 600$ in 1981 which is 1800$+ in today's value? Which makes that board pretty crazy expensive in comparison to a 120$ keycap set.
May I tell you IBM boards can hardly be found anywhere outside of NA for a sane price. May I tell you those beige yellowed out antiques you are so addicted to aren't easy to find nor a good enough choice for everyone and people have choices? But no. Go on and rant about it as if anyone cares really. Don't you love how there's people who actually love antiques and understand the hype around new stuff like Chyrosran22 and then there's these old sneery dudes who act like they are any better and superior.
