commentsVery rare keyboard.  We have only collected and sold a total of only 6 other soft-touch buckling spring keyboards among the 4000+ keyboards that we have sold since we have been in business.
commentsKeyboard has built-in internal speaker (not controllable or accessible by Windows operating system, probably a special feature used for system beeps associated with the original IBM computer that this keyboard was bundled with).
