    Mx cherry switches for laptops?


    Are any of these switches actually available? I've been looking on the net and I can't seem to find any, other than the ones used for desktop keyboards.

    Thanks.

    As far as I know, those switches are only for mechanical keyboards.
    Laptops don't have mechanical keyboards nor room to put such a keyboard.

    A option world be a usb connected mechanical keyboard with the switches you desire.

    I use DAS keyboards and wouldn't go typing without them.

    Laptops don't have ... room to put such a keyboard.
    There's the key (no pun intended).

    It is important to note that in spite of what notebook marketing departments want us to believe, notebooks do NOT make good gaming machines (or desktop replacements). There are many reasons for this but in this case, it is consumers overwhelming desire and demand that notebooks be as thin and light as possible.

    If you want a gaming keyboard with MX Cherry switches with your notebook, you will need to use an external keyboard.

    On top of that, laptop keyboards tend to be a self-contained, non-modifiable unit. The keyboards are as slim and cheap as possible, given the cost point of most laptops. The only way to replace most laptop keyswitches is to replace the entire keyboard.
