It's almost the same, but height adjustable. Note that AEKs / IIs came with different switches, so they're not all the same as each other. I prefer the AEKIIM2980s are garbage IMO
M0487s are decent and nice small footprint
M3501s AEK IIs are awesome but not quite as great as an original AEK M0115
The difference you'll be feeling is damped vs. undamped. The switches they use in both keyboards have similar feel. Even most of the salmons in the AEKIIs were damped.Ok then by feel my I don't have a Salmon/Salmon on my set. There's definitely a different feel between my AEK and AEK II, but I'm pretty sure the AEK II is still some flavor of ALPS.
And poor @billbucks060 is getting a much more intense lesson on keyboards than ever intended. Again...welcome to the board
Or unable to handle background noise when concentrating.We had three of them in a concrete walled room the size of a nice walk in closet, no carpeting. That was the sound of my high school days, AEKs are pure heavenly music to me. If it's too loud, you're too old!
I use a Microsoft Sculpt ergonomic keyboard at home and at work, so I’d actually love to have one of these for my Mac collection (assuming the keys aren’t terrible to type on, even if they aren’t as glorious as the AEK/AEK-II!)At least we can hopefully all agree, the Adjustable Keyboard M1242 was the worst!
