IBM model M spacesaver
« on: Sun, 04 May 2008, 19:00:07 »
In case any one is interested, there is a model m spacesaver available here for $140

http://www.clickykeyboards.com/index.cfm/fa/categories.main/parentcat/9242

Get it while its hot!, I give it 23 hours before its gone.

I don't know why this particuler model has gotten so expensive compared to the standard model M....

The last couple I got off of Ebay cost me around $35 each if I remember correctly. And they are in great shape.

(and most people here are familiar with the NEW 84-key Model M spacesaver I bought from Unicomp for $59)  :)

Good man, I'm glad to hear you've decided on it. Spendy, but I'm typing on one right now if that tells you anything.

Well, the fact that the dollar is so "weak" when compared to the euro, might help things a bit too eh :P

That's what happens when they try to pass off a republic as a democracy.

And I like the Filco more than the HHKB. I think the brown Cherry switches feel better and I have zero complaints about the quality of the keyboard. Plus, it costs half of what the Pro 2 costs.
