    Depends very much on the model, some of them can, others shouldn't be that bad

    You need pockets as big as the moon for this I feel. lol.

    I never really understood why the clickclacks are so expensive. But then I don't really like the designs of them anyway.

    Vader looks kinda cool. I'm not into collectors items and that stuff though, the ancient Model Ms and all that. Its all about practical use for me.

    If it looks nice that's fine, but if it has no purpose other than being valuable then I'm frankly not bothered!

    I finally broke down and got a Microsoft Wireless Entertainment 7000. I needed a bent layout (my doctor can hear me pop my wrist from outside his office, and he instantly knows it's me) and it was there, cheap as **** and a known reliable quantity.

    I'll miss my clickys, but at least the scissor-style keys on this don't feel mushy. An ergonomic clicky board was more than I simply had to spend.

    I'll still keep my eyes out for a good older board around here though. I may sell a few if I come across them in my hunting for house stuff.

    The whole Clack thing is out of hand, mostly due to a few people... CC seems cool, but if I were them I would really try to put more out on the market, and get more money into my own pocket instead of all the people reselling them at 300% mark up. I used to have a few, but I traded them off when I got obsessed with Cherry keys.

    There is not a whole lot of choice for ergo stuff in the mech world. Especially not on the cheaper end. Sometimes the old Apple splits go for good prices on ebay, might keep an eye if that would be good enough. Occasionally a Kinesis pops up on ebay for fairly cheap price too.

    He sells them on Elitekeyboards.
    And they go for less than 30usd normally, think the Vaders may have gone for 50usd.
