Some A500s even had Cherry keyboards (unfortunately linear springs as well), but later on, Commodore switched to Mitsumi in order to save some money. A1200 keyboards are linear-spring only, no tactile feel, so there's lots of room for improvement.
I just got two bags of Gateron switches this week - these are awesome, and a lot cheaper than Cherry MX. Key caps is the big deal: These are hard to come by in the required sizes for the Amiga, but I'm on it.
Will follow up on Amiga Reloaded questions next week.
