You need finger transplants, i like the keys very much, they feel just like
good modern PC keyboards!

I always found them to have a completely different tactile feel (C64, A1000, A4000). Right now I'm on an IBM-6326 where all keys have a quite high initial resistance which quickly falls off. You can literally feel the rubber dome inside. Not too bad, but far away from C= quality.
