Any update, OP? A retro mouse with optical is a nice idea.
Nothing so far. What I might end up doing is just using a vintage mouse with a USB serial port.

Does anyone make "retro" USB mice in the style of the old, boxy ones from the 80s?

I mean things like the Mouse Systems mouse that was barely more than a grey brick with buttons. :D Those really chunky, blocky looking ones from the early days of mousing. Does anyone make modern USB mice like that? I could really use one for a retro-styled casemod I'm working on.

Bumping the thread in hopes of a reply to my last question. I can make do with any keyboard that fits the required dimensions, but I don't know the jargon so I don't know what to look or search for.

As I said, there's a reason not everything on the list is mandatory. If I know what I need to look for to make sure a keyboard physically fits, I can decide what else I'm willing to do without. I don't think a trackpoint is in the cards at this stage, and while I'm still holding out for integrated l...

It's all good, I've done it myself. I'm having a damnably hard time finding anything with integrated lock key lights. I just keep getting results for backlit keyboards. Is running the LEDs from their original location to the keys feasible, or will the wires get in the way of operation/wear out from ...

I'm not on Geekhack (yet), so that wasn't me. It seems like doing weird stuff to Amstrads is a more popular passtime than I realized. It's been a long time since I've seen a Model M in the, uh, plastic, so I guess I'd forgotten how curved they were. Hrm. I measured the keys as you said; from center ...

I think something like a G80-1501 would match almost all your needs except the trackpoint, that's probably the hardest to fulfill. Huh, I think that's the first remotely modern keyboard I've seen with the integrated lights. I've found at least one mechanical keyboard with a Trackpoint, Unicomp's En...

Mech KB noob, searching for a board with very particlar features

I'm completely new to shopping for mechanical keyboards, and feeling a little out of my depth. I'm after a keyboard with a very specific set of features; I go into the details and reasons below. Essential: Matches the layout and dimensions of the classic Model M (I think) (EDIT: looks like I got thi...
