Re: I want modern performance with a great keyboard, what are my options?

I've never typed on the spacesaver ii. It appears more like a desktop keyboard with longer stroke and probably less of a snappy comeback, perhaps more lateral play in each key. Does anyone know? Is this a 2000's era desktop keyboard with the vague feeling semi-long travel as described above, or does...

Re: I want modern performance with a great keyboard, what are my options?

I also wondered if it was possible to use an older thinkpad 7 row USB accessory keyboard, (with trackpoint and palmrest built in) on one of the modern era thinkpads with real power, such as p50-p53. I don't know if any drivers work for that.

Cheers

I recently got a brand new (never used) p50 thinkpad for the purpose of creating and editing extensive video files. have a couple questions about how to either add a different keyboard and screen, or do remote desktop and control it from another machine.

Re: X210 4th batch crowdfunding

Is it still possible to buy a x210 motherboard or whole system?

Was there anyone ever offering the whole thing built including the 3:2 screen and maybe even the OS?

I don't have any x200 parts at all.

Wanted: heavily used very shiny chicony keyboard for t60

Just what title says. i want it as shiny as possible. As smooth as possible. I would love it if all the roughness was worn off the keys. I am thinking of sanding my keys with 2500 sandpaper, but if I can find a worn out keyboard that will be easier.

Thanks. I just like the smooth feel better.

My e key came off and is broken. They keyboard is the chicony one for the t60, part # 39T7178

the keyboard has lots of nice shine and It would take 5 years to get a new one this shiny and smooth.

I would also consider a used chicony keyboard, the shineyer and smoother the better.
