    Probably that you're sat at your desk in your chair rather than stood in a showroom... Pics!

    Also: longweight - any sign of your GH caps?

    My desk and surrounding area are a mess at the moment, but will be tidying it all up at the weekend probably so might be able to get some then, if not it will be when I do my rebuild next year as I will be building a new desk probably as well as the one I have now is abit annoying.

    That realforce looks gooood. The only thing I dislike about realforce's (and cherry's) design is the rather large forehead they have. But the white version looks much more subtle.

    I got some PBT caps for my poker yesterday as I wanted it to be a bit more subtle, unfortunately I was sent the wrong spacebar, it is still black but I am not sure it is PBT and definitely not a poker one as it doesn't have the legend. I am not too fussed though it still looks ok. I was debating getting the grey on white PBT set someone has for sale on GH and use the white set for the modifiers and space...

    I feel quite bad about buying it now!

    I agree about the large area at the top, must be there for a reason though.

    I like the black one but the white / grey just looks amazing!

    The extra space above the function keys are to accommodate the controller, and other electronic components. Other boards have them elsewhere to make the casebody smaller, but they have to make much more complex PCBs.
    At least is is not like a few I have had with super bulky IBM M size casebody, where there is literally 4cm of empty space all around the PCB for NO REASON.

    Today I get my grubby little mits on a 38GT to build, with a donor Race - is going to be red switches, red plate and red LEDs, and a poker that i need to put a beast plate on and make 65g blues with korean springs. Sadly none of it's mine!

    There should be no guilt in Keyboard buying, just a craving for MOAR.

    Keyboard meet should be early August some time IMO!

    This is one of my pet hates about the G80-3000... that vast expanse of plastic above the F keys. The case is huge.
