|IBM logo||Unicomp logo in upper right above LED cluster. Blank oval sticker to cover upper-left location.
|cable||attached, coiled cable, ps/2 connector for keyboard and for mouse. Can be used on modern computer with only USB ports with purchase of additional ps/2 to USB adapters|
|key caps||removable as one piece|
|key switches||clicky = buckling spring|
|grade||Keyboard tested and all keys are 100% functional. Integrated trackpoint erase-head mouse tested and 100% functional. Keyboard in excellent condition. See last 2 photos for keyboard details. All 101 keys individually removed, cleaned, and reinstalled.|
|condition||Keyboard pre-selected as good candidate and passed initial testing to confirm mechanical condition. Upper keyboard case disassembled and individual 101 keys have been removed and fully cleaned by hand. Inspection of interior plate. All 56 plastic rivets drilled out and replaced with M2 precision screws to restore internal integrity. Interior plate vacuumed to remove foreign debris. Keyboard re-assembled and re-tested post-cleaning. Individual photography of rear label. Photo gallery of typical restoration workflow.|
|comments||Similar to IBM model M13 in terms of buckling-spring keyboard feel, but uses Unicomp materials and Unicomp “force sensing resistor” trackpoint technology which differs from IBM’s patented “strain gauge” trackpoint design.
