Re: IBM 5251 Beamspring

Also, if you want good offers, take off the cover to show that the insides have no rust and at least do some light cleaning. Looks are everything.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

Sorry if it's obvious -- What is this key switch? It's linear and very very smooth. When I took the keyboard out of the box and tried it out I assumed it was Fujitsu leaf springs but I thought those were discrete switches. This is a membrane keyboard so now I'm confused. Isn't the other Fujitsu key...

I think the term mechanical is an easy way to comment on the key feel. Mechanical keyboards are associated with a crisp key feel whereas non-mechanical is associated with something that is mushy and imprecise.
