I have an otherwise excellent membrane keyboard from Computer Upgrade King (best computer reseller I've ever found, TBH, and they sell on amazon Smile | :) ) - it came with my computer, it's rgb lit, weighted with steel backplate, and all the keys are mounted such that the bases are FLUSH WITH THE BOARD. There's no pit/well under each key. It means the keys sit a little higher, but it also makes it the easiest to clean board I've ever had. Also the bases are RGB lit which looks nice.

The name is silly. Don't let it fool you. I normally don't give glowing endorsements. They get one.

I bought a Mantis in january as a dev workstation and it screams, and the parts are all mid to top shelf - ASUS motherboard. I paid $1200 for it, with an AMD Ryzen 7 APU. The damned thing can play fallout 4 with onboard video @ 1080p. 32GB of RAM. Smallish NVMe (500 GB) but i replaced it with 2TB as soon as I bought the thing, and gave away the old stick, and a 3TB HDD it shipped with - WD black I think?

US support too (not sure where you're at). Some guy answered the phone when I called three times in one day. Same guy. No wait time. It was ridiculous.

I feel like I am in a Stephen King book when I order from them, like - it's too good to be true, and something terrible is going to happen to me as a result. Laugh | :laugh:

Straw Poll

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
