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

LOL, thanx so much for your very clear explication about UK Intel which 26 James bond movies weren't able to make me understand.

Re: IBM model M15

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.

Re: Delete my account

the M15 numpad is more like 200$ (tough harder to find and often bundled with the M15 itself).

You need to have a buyer neverzheless. I could not sell my Unsaver recently - glad I do not have to anymore.

figuring out prices for rare vintages is hard imho

Welcome! If you wanted to make the thing wireless, you could fit like twelve 18650 cells in there. I made this number up, but, there is a whole bunch of space in there.

Hell, I managed to fit a Soarer's Converter in an IBM M15, and those things have *no* space inside.

Well the best ergo keyboard is very subjective. I would love to try one. I agree though, you won't find one like it. A cherry G80-5000 isn't that different, afterall they're just split keyboards. You'll definitely find many like it. Cherry MX is horrible, Chryo did a review of it, flimsy plastic on...
