This looks nice, but the keyboard looks very dated for the price. :P (the color, that is. I thought they stopped making white keyboards 10 years ago)

Also if you run Windows, don't you just need 3 keys? :P

Hmm this keyboard looks nice but it looks like it lacks a couple modifiers and a numpad. Also I guess it's mechanical ?

Don't forget to include the C, V, and X buttons;

Wait. Which keyboard are we talking about? The small one or the big one;

... or that apple tab thingy where you need no buttons at all cause you can just throw it out of the window *ducks*

Btw, a real keyboard looks like this, of course:

there's nothing on a full sized keyboard (apart from pause/play/forward/backwards media buttons, i guess) that this one can't do. having the F# keys be secondary functions of the # keys is a little annoying sometimes, but all the other combinations (fn+[, /, ;, ' for up, down, left, and right, for example) are actually a lot easier. the switches are topres; they're capacitive, and use a combination of a higher quality rubber dome and a conical spring to avoid the "mushiness" of standard rubber dome keyboards and the "clickiness" of mechanicals.

That's a ZX81 keyboard. Looks exactly like this, unfortunately - there are no real keys or anything ;) Believe me, it sucks, even though the idea of having the BASIC tokens on-keyboard was pretty neat. Sinclair got it right with the next machine though - the rubber 48K keyboard is awesome.

So here's mine, I had it for over three months now. :) https://db.tt/z9RIncT9 I like to call it Jean-Fred ( full name is Jean-Frédérique II).
Specs :
-i7 3770k
-16GB GSkill sniper pc3-14900 cas 9 RAM
-2TB Seagate Barracuda
-Asus P8Z77-V pro mother board
-Sapphire HD7970 OC with boost GPU
-Akasa Cobra 750W
-Zalman Z11 plus case
-Some random no-name DVD burner I've not used yet
-CPU cooler is Cooler Master hyper 612s

Also as you can see, the cables are kinda messy at the bottom. I can't' do much about it but they're not very dense so not much of an issue.

It runs Arch Linux and Win7 and games just blast me away. I have a 1680x1050 20" display with matt surface. I use a Logitech wireless multimedia keyboard. Also for sound I have a pair of Loewe speakers and a Waterfall HF1 subwoofer hooked up to a Sonos connect:amp, this setup is awesome for both games and music. Also a Logitech G230 headset.
Pretty much it. :P

So I know this is a huge necropost... but Batman has died :(
Looks like the graphics card gave out. I've got a friend coming over with some canned air, we are going to clean out the dust, re-seat everything and see if that fixes anything. If not, I'm going to go out and get a new graphics card. Something I definitely didn't budget for, and I really should have got a new graphics card sooner. You know, before the prices skyrocketed.

Currently looking at potentially replacing it with this: https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX66283

I needed something today. Grabbed an Radeon RX 560 4gb. Should be better than the last card.
