I would preorder a couple of them (to begin with) if I can secure an AZERTY layout (French). Unfortunately it’s unclear if there is a chance to have one so I’d rather wait...
Can someone from AmigaOnTheLake confirm or clarify?
Is it only US layout??

can you post a pic of the AZERTY layout so we can see it. Keys could be printed with lots of variations so different layouts are possible

They're all printed on the back of the A500 manual..

http://www.bombjack.org/amiga/amiga-...troduction.pdf page 242-> Most of them are accurate :-) At least the s keymap is very consistent among amiga models, I haven't experienced that much variance.

Thanks Jope,

The nice thing about cherry MX is the availability of keycaps that are available for keyboards in many colours and sizes. I dont see an issue with the standard characters as the stores can custom print so for the non standard characters you can provide a .svg file etc and they can make keycaps which wouldnt normally be available for the Amiga

I would preorder two of these, as well with a preference for AZERTY, however if no other option is available the default Amiga Qwerty one is absolutely ok.
