IBM rubber dome keyboards for RT PC (5086) system
« on: Tue, 04 August 2020, 06:47:06 »
These aren't buckling spring, or even "Prototopre" as far as I know, but they do look nice from the photo: https://www.ebay.com/itm/124283612937
This appears to be the same thing with no photo: https://www.ebay.com/itm/114335252414
I'd buy one to try it were they not so expensive.  I wonder how they compare to the "Quiet Touch" rubber dome Model Ms built by IBM.  (I know the Unicomp Quiet Touch boards are not well reputed.)

These were made by Brother for IBM.
