Cooler Master has announced that stock of its Topre switch keyboard, the NovaTouch TKL, is currently landing in Europe.
The NovaTouch TKL was launched globally on 22nd September and we reviewed it here
a few weeks ago. However, it was subjected to a delay and in Europe has only been available for pre-order.
Thankfully, Cooler Master has confirmed that stock is now filtering through and this should appear on websites soon. In the press release, Cooler Master gave the reason for the delay as follows:
'The NovaT ouch TKL is available as of today in Europe. The delay in Europe was due to Cooler Master's commitment to fully offer regional ANSI and ISO layouts that best suit the needs of the European market. The NovaTouch TKL has a MSRP of £149.99 Inc VAT in the UK - Price and availability may vary based on region. Please consult your local Cooler Master Representative for more information'.

The NovaTouch TKL is a tenkeyless keyboard that features hybrid capacitive switches or Topre switches. These boast faster actuation than Cherry MX switches and are generally quieter too, making them an option for membrane keyboard users that don't like the noise and feel of Cherry MX switches.
However, the Topre switches do have a high price tag and the NovaTouch TKL retails for £149.99 as a result.
