Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate

 

IBM bundled its Model M keyboard with the original IBM computers of the 1980s and quickly rose to cult status among purists that prefer its buckling spring action and clacky tactile response to the low-profile, scissor-switch keyboards that have become...

It's pricey. No frills, no extras, only one pair of USB ports on the side. No media controls. I love this keyboard, but it's ridiculously expensive
