I like the idea of the weighted keys... it makes it easier to NOT hit buttons you don't want to push :D

Why are the num/scroll/caps lock keys lit? I mean, if you're worrying so much about memorizing the location of everything, surely 3 little lights aren't a big deal??

Memorizing the keys is easy... most people do it already. But remembering whether caps/scroll/num lock is on or off all the time is a little more then most people tend to keep in their heads when typing.

the locations of keys is fixed.
the on/off state of the lock keys isn't.

The weighted keys feature was intriguing at first. But then I saw that they weight the Shift keys at 55 grams and the Ctrl keys at a whopping 80 grams. I hit both of those keys with my weakest finger, the pinky, and have to extend it to reach so it actually hurts after a while. They should be the lightest keys on the keyboard, in my opinion.

I'll pass on this one.
