Re: Found an IBM M15 with Numpad in a Dumpster

Haven't been posting much here. But... We do office moves at work often. When we do we put out dumpsters for us to recycle old hardware. I walked by one this morning, and I saw a numpad and thought "this looks interesting..." I picked it up and it looked like a M15 numpad, and I thought "no way!" T...

Re: Found an IBM M15 with Numpad in a Dumpster

BTW, does anyone know where I can find pictures of an opened-up M15? Want to ensure I open it to clean it as safe as possible. It is not like the M2 where you open it up and everything inside explodes, is it?

Nice!!! I think that accessory numpad is harder to find than the keyboard itself.
That is correct. Once I bought an M15 numpad on eBay for $200. Very rarely you can find the M15 numpad on eBay or anywhere else.

Nice find! I don't like ergo keyboards, but I like the deep ping of the M15. ;) I wonder why they all have that.

This isn't ergo - it's a staggered split keyboard (not that I wouldn't mind getting this one for myself).

Well, in Britain, MI5 is a generally ineffective shadowy government agency focussed on internal security, sort of like the American NSA, which conspiracy theorists tend to worry about but most everyone else ignores. Your man James Bond works for MI6, the generally incompetent shadowy government agen...

A Northgate Labeled FK-555 in great condition (With dye-subs), an F107, or an M15. If I had to choose between them all though, and money was truly no object, I'd probably go with the M15 (with the numpad, of course). Ergonomic buckling springs just seem so unique. Since the funds are theoretically u...

Uh, hard question. The only M on which I could spend 3 hundred is the M15, and... Yeah, I'd need much more money for that.
