That depends...is it buckling spring or rubber dome?

If buckling spring, that's a good deal :)

I think I paid $25 for my Lexmark-built M5-2 (buckling springs) and that was generally considered a great deal, all things considered.

True, and I believe by the time M5-2s came around we'd be looking at Aptivas.

It belongs in hardware regardless.

It belongs in hardware regardless.Unlike Bill I could usually not care less about where posts go, but if you're going to be so argumentative I suggest you read the forum topic heading again, especially the "8088 to 80286 ONLY!" part.

It also wouldn't have hurt to add "keyboard" to your subject line so those of us who don't know what an M5-2 is don't have to waste our time.

I wasn't the OP...

I'd have put it in O/T because there's no non-vintage "hardware" category. I was simply making the point that it doesn't belong in EITHER of the computer categories.

I misunderstood your reply and also didn't realize that you weren't the OP; mea culpa, and Happy Easter.

my bad, is a keyboard, but old enough some might consider it to be late vintage, being a model M and all.
