Humor If you follow the keyboard collectors market (yeah, didn't think so . . .) then you'd certainly know that the IBM model M15 split ergonomic is pretty much the most desirable keyboard out there. A small number of them were made over a short span of time (1994-1995), and their clunky plastic knob and super-adjustable design meant that over years many of them broke. So when one lands on eBay, it's a big deal.

I have a long-standing project in the back of my mind that one day I'll get around to doing. I used to own a G3 PowerBook Pismo (well two, actually...one was a parts mule) and that was the absolute best laptop keyboard I've ever used. I want to buy one off eBay and put it in a regular keyboard chassis -- or perhaps build my own chassis for it -- so I'll have a good "writing" keyboard for my desktop machine. I'm sure it's possible, even if I have to use a prototyping board or something similar. It would have to be converted to USB of course.

I'm currently using an original Macally iKey which is not bad for what I paid for it, but I find it a bit mushy on some keys.
