Frothy Chimp is in a silly mood.

No I don't have marks or anything on my keyboard. I type really well with one hand. Doh! I said that outloud.

No Marks on my Keyboards either... I clean them once in a while... ;D ;D ;D

Gee Frothy... I type with both hands (not necessarily well)...
But only one finger of each hand... and the left hand finger is only
allowed to hit the "Shift" and "Ctrl" keys... ::)

Nope. My keyboard is too dear to me... It's a rare IBM Model M keyboard, the only one that ever came in black. They go for around $300 because they're so rare. Really tempting too, because it's black and I'm sure it'd burn real nice.

holy crap! I had no idea there was a market for old ass keyboards.. At work we've got an entire room crammed full of old keyboards and you can rest assured I'll be doing more research into this.. gonna make me some $$... :D :D

I have a couple marks but there all from rage. I really should buy a new keyboard even though this is like a month old.

No. My model M is precious to me.

Wow, black model M. I'm happy with my white models. Type just as well, no clit mouse to deal with, and $270 less.

I must say, I hold a higher respect for a professional that still uses these keyboards. I walk into a server room and see some kid with a roll-up, backlit, LCD keyboard with 1000 multimedia keys over bluetooth. Then there's the guy with a clacky IBM model M. I instantly know who the professional is and who I prefer to deal with.

So what makes those model M so special? Are they nice to use, or what is it?
Yes, they're really nice to use.. They click with every keystroke and they have a really nice mechanical feel. They're about ten pounds and have a solid steel backplate in them. They're pretty much indestructible, I've got a couple from the late 1980's that have been in use pretty much the whole time and they still work perfectly fine, the letters aren't even faded. Every part of them is replaceable and they are really built to last.

There's a whole cult following for these keyboards. If you look up "ibm model m" or "clicky keyboard" on google you should find pages and pages of people fanatically praising it.
