One keyboard to rule them all!

NPR shares the love...

Clicky Keyboards are the bomb and you can pry them from my cold dead carpal tunnell'd fingers. Someone may actually get to...

My 6lb(!) home office IBM Model M keyboard is now 17+ years old. Born on Date is Feb 27, 1992. And that cream colored tank is still rocking the code as hard as... well let's just say "EVER". I actually have spare parts in a drawer just-in-case it ever develops a faulty spring or buckle.

My 6GB Quad core linux monster at the office is sporting a 12 year old, all black Model M with a little red trackpoint built in. And that keyboard will live to serve the next computer too. My boss jokes he knows there is something wrong when he can't hear the "fingers rowing"...

For my money: the perfect gift for a geek on Christmas,
John Fields
