    Nah - i don't know if you missed it but he claimed to have some problems with it which is why he ordered the other one which i think is too bulky

    I think i'll just spray whichever one i get

    Cheers guys

    I have an IBM like IsaacSibson's, and you get used to the vertical keys ;)

    Besides, it makes the keyboard a little smaller from end to end thus freeing up valuable desk space.

    Check it's a UK layout - my Maplin black (Antec) hadn't got a £ key and others were in the wrong place :grr:

    You get used to the layout of the IBM. It's worth it for the reduced size of the keyboard. The main key block is all standard, and UK layout. OCS sell the keyboard for around £30.

    Don't forget it has two USB ports! :D
    They dont take power hungry devices, but work with my Intellimouse Optical...

    I know but my computer is going to have a fair few anyway (See thread 'money no issue (or virtually)')

    mobo = 6 usb v2.0 + 2 headers which are going to be linked to a 3 1/2 bay
    monitor = usb hub v1.1 4 port

    so i shouldn't need anymore

    Cheers anyway (I'll definately consider it if I can't find any more)
