|condition||keyboard is used equipment|
|origin||Made in the USA|
|Extremely rare variant of IBM model M keyboard. Keyboard mechanism is buckling spring NON-CLICKY with sound-dampening grease injected within each of the 101 individual buckling spring mechanisms.
Precison, progressive-spring, tactile feel but without click sound of normal buckling spring.
|cable||removable, coiled cable, ps/2 connector (standard length)|
|key caps||two-piece removable (key cap + key stem)|
|key switches||clicky = buckling spring|
|comments||Very rare keyboard. We have only collected and sold a total of only 6 other soft-touch buckling spring keyboards among the 4000+ keyboards that we have sold since we have been in business.|
|comments||Keyboard has built-in internal speaker (not controllable or accessible by Windows operating system, probably a special feature used for system beeps associated with the original IBM computer that this keyboard was bundled with).|
