Hardware, Embedded Systems "Recently I had a chance to spend some time with the second version of the Das Keyboard. While this product is still plain black like its predecessor, a number of other changes were made in order to get it more in line with what consumers are looking for from an elite keyboard. The Das Keyboard is designed for power users who have the layout of a traditional keyboard memorized and interested in doing two things- increasing their typing speed and impressing their coworkers."

There is one true keyboard and IBM is its prophet. Glory to the buckling-spring keyboard.

Which, BTW, could be converted to labeless by popping the keycaps off.

Yup, I have one. One that came with a IBM ps/2. Another cool rarity about it is that is a true Dutch layout. Many Dutch people would not be able to type on it as a lot of keys are juggled around from the now-default US-Int we use.

It's a really good keyboard.
