$10 Israeli Model M shipped for the low low price of $110!

I feel that this particular sale does little to counter certain Jewish stereotypes, to say the least.

And if the shipping wasn't over $100 US to Australia I would have a Jewish model M to go with the Arabic/english keyboard on my laptop... dam

To play on more Jewish stereotypes:

$120 shipped is nothing to your average Goldman Sachs banker, so why begrudge their indulgences?
Most of the modding can be done on your own once you break through the psychological barriers.

I doubt a Goldman Sachs banker uses a grubby old Model M

It has BS on the top right hand key. That is probably what this is.

I cant read the characters in the upper right but that's definitely the gold-plated HHKB lite Japanese layout (as jwaz said). I don't know of many Chinese keyboards with a dedicated button for "kana".

as far as "bs" its supposed to be decent for a rubber dome.

More on topic to the item at hand, there's this guy in israel who has been selling or trying to sell hebrew-layout keyboards for a while now. I didn't get a chance to look at the auction but based on the price and shipping I bet its the same guy just relisting it again. If its the one im thinking of its been up for over half a year.
