I saw this keyboard for sale at gamestop for 9.99 used.
I thought it would make a great gag gift for someone that is just learning how to use a computer.

looks like someone got some old AT keyboards, changed the wires to PS/2 and spray painted it black. If I wanted to play a game with memory, I will go to my local pc shop and upgrade, thank you.

It's not an old AT keyboard and not PS/2. It is USB and works on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms (http://www.daskeyboard.com/specifications.php). It also has weighted keypress sensitivty (http://www.daskeyboard.com/images/keygrams.jpg). But yeah, it still looks like what you described. :)

:p What I'd really like is one of the old Northgate keyboards. I wish they were still around...I know you can get them used. I wonder if there are any USB versions. Off to Google. :)

If you mean the buckling-spring keyboard Northgate used to sell, here's a close approximation from the company that bought the Lexmark technology for the old IBM clickey keyboards: http://store.yahoo.com/pckeyboards/

I still use my IBM clickey as my professional daily driver; after 7 years, still going strong.

I think its a rebadged Keytronic keyboard. Which are nice, long lasting keyboards.

80 bucks is lame btw... :rolleyes:

I wonder about the variable keyforce they advertize. No Keytronic board has that.

I have an idea for that keyboard! Too bad I'm not a keyboarding/typing teacher, because when it came to test time, guess what keyboard would be waiting for the students when they walk in on test day? Buhwahahaha!

One of my friends painted his Commodore64 keytops to force himself to learn touchtyping. It was cheaper, if abrupt.
