i'm off to collect the sidewinder keyboard from a store a few miles away. i'm so excited.
interestingly - if i'd just walked into the store (PC World) without reserving the keyboard first, i'd have to pay £70.
making the reservation means i get the item for the online price £40
. that is crazy.
moral of that story: if you are in the UK, don't ever buy anything from a PC World store without phoning them up and trying to reserve it first.
just seen the keyboard on ebay for £20
(including postage) so i've ordered it. it's missing a game function key on the top row - no problem.
this is the keyboard. i'm undecided about the cursor keys still being stuck on the right. being able to move them to the left also would have been nice - but i suppose it's enough to just make a bit of room by removing the numeric keys (and at only £20 i can't really complain if i don't like it).
