Everything came out to about $1600 in the end, with taxes and shipping and whatnot, it was a good chunk of my savings, I work at a local furniture store for minimum wage

don't double post!

anyways, if your talking about the original one (not the II) then I have it and personally its pretty good, actually great except that the keys are now wearing off... its been ~1 year of use and the L, O, M, ., Enter and D keys are starting to wear off... The grey paint/finish on them is smearing and the keys look just plain ugly, it still functions great and the keys aren't loud at all, the LEDs look great

it's really comfortable and the keys have a nice press to them

it's just a plain keyboard, none of those stupid shortcut keys, I don't like those, very simple, but very stylish and sleek, I like it a lot, I bought mine for about $40 at the time, still no wearing on the keys, I guess it comes with time.. iunno

I just turned 17, and I got the money to buy my $1200 rig by mowing my grans lawn, fixing my neighbors computers, and doing some ****ing hard work for dad.
Basically, if u want cash, u gotta work. unfortunately.
Or just rob banks.
