    Unix Keyboard with "Model M" feedback


    Greetings,
    I'm using a 15-year-old IBM model M and this thing is holding onto it's last limbs. I'm trying to find a keyboard that gives the same tactile-feedback the model m does, but with a UNIX layout (ie control in place of the caps lock key, etc). Any ideas?

    Unicomp is really the only way to go afaik, seeing that they bought and use the patents which were used on the old model M's. Just be careful, they do make some rubber dome boards too (though better than most, I hear)
    And yes, they offer boards without the evil keys, and with several ctrl/caps/alt options.
    I don't know if there's a minimum order, but they also offer some old IBM and Lexmark models built new, and replacement parts for said keyboards.

    and a link to their store

    I'm in no way affiliated, they just make excellent keyboards.
