Apparently a very similar keyboard, designed by the same people, and using
the same Alps keyswitches. Mind you, according to their web page, the switches
are rated for 20 million operations. I don't even touch type, so I somehow
don't think I've reached that level of usage. And the Avant keyboards cost
150 bucks - a lot of money for a keyboard + carriage from the US. Mind you,
I'm sure my original one wasn't cheap, even if I didn't pay for it.
