Fans of rare imported mechanical keyboards crafted by Topre have a friend in Fujitsu whom now import them to North America. The secret sauce which attracts people to these keyboards are the electrostatic key switches Topre uses which are very different from Cherry style mechanical switches or the discount dome rubber style. That does mean that you won't be able to swap keycaps without ordering them directly from Topre. Drop by The Tech Report to see if Topre deserves the glamour which surrounds their name.
"Topre's Realforce keyboards are legendary for their quality and durability, and now Fujitsu Computer Products of America is officially distributing these boards on American shores. We got a tenkeyless Realforce R2 board under our fingers to see whether it lives up to the Topre mythos."
