Re: Odd date label on a Focus 727/747

Think of it this way, the IBM AT is almost ten years away in 76, so theres absolutely no chance of this being made in 76. They just have a different year system, I think the Japanese have one too.

Re: Yet another beamspring refurb (5251)

Re: Are there any benefits to having a mechanical keyboard if you're not a heavy gamer or aren't a power user

For me its just key feel. I dont really play games and I assume most people here are not heavy gamers. You don't need to be a gamer to have a mechanical keyboad, thats the bs concept keyboard company would like to sell you. The key here is that you dont use the pc much, so its probably not worth it ...

I got my Leading Edge DC2014(with the entire computer system) for "only" 150$. Most blue alps board never went over 300. Also, many keyboards use blue alps. Like the OemMax 101 and Focus 747. If you do some research you'll find out that there plenty of options.

You could probably try to wire up a model f keyboard to the displaywriter controller, problem here is that all model f except the displaywriter model f use different layouts.
