grey x61 keyboard, what is it?

#1 Post by vavet » Sun May 26, 2019 2:56 pm

Hi,
got my hands on an x60/61 keyboard with greyish key caps (all keys). Is it something special? Never seen one like this before.
tactile feedback is a bit more springy, but don't know if its the intention or the fact that the kb is in good shape.
Any ideas?

Post pictures because I know I have an X60 with a grey enter key.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Someone swapped on keycaps from a Dell, HP, or Lenovo 3000?

It's just "discolored" plastic, looks the same color as post-CS09 keyboards.

And personally, I'd still call that black. :D
