|Interesting find for the keyboard collector.. It looks, feels and sounds just like an IBM model M ps/2 keyboard. Even has the same interchangeable key caps and key stems, stabilizer bars on number pad, similar weight. Differences include the RJ-11 connector to ps/2 cable, keyboard extension feet design, slanted font used on keys, LED and internal keyboard controller, space bar design.|
|cable||removable ps/2 to RJ-11 type|
|key caps||removable (two piece, key stem + key cap)|
|key switches||clicky = buckling spring|
|Designed when “real” typing on a quality keyboard was a required skill to use a $5000 IBM personal computer.
(pre-dates the then new mouse-click and graphical user interface operating system later to be known as Microsoft Windows 3.1 and 95)
|condition||Upper keyboard case and individual keys
have been removed and fully cleaned by hand.
|comments||This keyboard is tested to work 100%|
