How a simple details can make all the difference: accented numbers row!
One the "lost highlight" when going from a TKL/75% to a 60/65% is the visual color contrast provided by the function key rows, a bit like a set loses some shine. Not so with Avanguardia which the designer specifically aimed, consciously or not, toward function row less layouts. With the base dark alphas or the white alpha kit that blue number row is a nice touch that give a touch of color to a very elegant looking set. If you have the chance, grab the Novelties, the arrows by themselves are worth the entry price in my opinion!
