    Used one today in a lab, was nice and needed to replace my old keyboard at home.

    23 bucks shipped.

    Thinking about buying one of these and selling my custom PC.

    we have some of those in our labs here. They look a tad funky at first, but aren't so bad when you get used to them. For $23 shipped, not so bad a deal.

    nope.

    My dilemna is whther I should sell my amd64 3200+ with 2GB Ram and a 10,000rpm drive, and buy a crappy dell which has enough power for my needs (now that gaming has left my life).

    Downgrade to a 2.5ghz celeron with 1Gb ram?

    Yea, ill probably just end up getting a new heatsink that uses passive cooling. The fan on this one is just way to loud.

    noise. At first I had thought it was my case fans, but than I powered it up with them unplugged to compare difference, and found it was mostly the heatsink.

    WTF?
    Order Processed: Tuesday, November 01, 2005
    Estimated Ship Date: Wednesday, November 16, 2005
    Delivery Estimate: Monday, November 21, 2005 - Wednesday, November 23, 2005

    Why does it take two weeks to prepare a keyboard to ship?
