6 board haul for $30. Model M, 2x Model M2, Acer and more

Unfortunately, only the Model M appears to work. I'm unable to test the Jr. I'm taking the cord from the M2 that doesn't work (scroll and pause break lights are stuck on, seems I need to replace capacitors?) and putting it in the one with a cut cord. Hopefully it works, will probably keep it for myself if it does.

Probably going to go back for this one either way, but I'm wondering if it's mechanical: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Leading-Edge-AT-Keyboard-Model-BTC-5369-Made-in-Korea-ships-worldwide-/191096494873?pt=US_Vintage_Computing_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2c7e3d1b19

Also, I can't find much info on this one. Is it worth anything? http://showcase.netins.net/web/tkz/BTC-5060/BTC-5060.htm

EDIT: Turns out both M2 are busted. Shame.

Actually, my PC is just retarded. Just tested them on my dad's PC and they all work (apart from that m2 of course). SCORE!

Nice score! :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
