Today, I don’t really care about fancy features like great aesthetics, RGB backlights, media keys and extra USB ports. I just need something that gives me great tactile feedback, be durable, enable me to easily swap keys to fit my Programmer Dvorak layout. The Model M fits my needs perfectly.
“Really can use this as a weapon,” the blog post jokes. There’s even a video “to show clicky sound difference” between two different versions of the Model M — and in true geek fashion, he even removes the casing screws to see whether the inside had rivets or bolts.
The original submission drew a tip from long-time Slashdot reader Spazmania based on his own experiences with the Model M. “The thing I most like? There are little plastic caps on the keys. When they get dirty I can pop them off and run them through the dishwasher.”
Any other Slashdot readers want to share their own experiences with Model M keyboards?
