The Mighty Model M, part II

June 24, 2009

Following up on a post from March 2009 about my beloved IBM Model M keyboard…

Check out “Inside the World’s Greatest Keyboard” in PC World (with pictorial evidence, yet). That article prompted this Metafilter thread, in which several of the commenters note that – at least for them – this heavy, old keyboard seems to reduce the strain on their fingers, if anything.

There’s yet more love for the IBM Model M in this discussion on “cheap but bombproof” consumer goods (via Plep). That Ask Metafilter thread contains plenty of other recommendations for items of similar quality, too, so it’s worth a look even if you don’t care about keyboards…
