Although I really don't know what the seller is referring to as "pine" Acer switches? AFAIK, the only difference on this new batch from the other cheaper one is the keycaps aren't Spanish. I think the seller will accept $30 or less, btw.
Chyros said Acer switches even have "pine" versions with lubricant.

I'm not sure what version I had, but I wasn't really sure what to think of the key feel and sound.

I got offer like $37 but I think that could be a bit more lower.

That sold fast. Which is great for me, as I have a bunch of 'em to sell and that's a nice price ($150). However, the buyer might have thought this KB had blue Alps and was getting a real bargain.

Hope they knew what they wanted. That's a rare 101I, with BAE (vs ANSI) and a plastic base. Pretty amazing, one each 101I and 101N have sold on ebay in the past couple weeks, the (only?) two plastic base Northgate models. Plus a 101P (Gen4 programmable) about a month ago. Those are the three BAE 101 models, all uncommon. Here's the 101N, which has the Plus-style nav keys:

Only the Gen3 101 was ANSI, but those are more common than the other three put together. None of them came with blue Alps, of course, that was only the earlier examples of the gold label 102.

Cool-looking T.I. board. Looks kinda beat up and beyond my knowledge of potential conversion but even the caps look tasty, ignoring the layout. Not too far from me either...

I almost bought it as soon as it popped up. I have a rule about being able to use keyboards though. What kind of switches are in that bad boy?

That does appear to be the same board but the switches don't look the same. They are white stem, cross mount in this one. It obviously has switches missing but it adds further curiosity. I think it may be worth throwing it in the Identify Switch thread.

That guy had that keyboard listed on craigslist around here for months. I thought he finally sold it, but I guess he just gave up on craigslist!

I've got a 102 on ebay, right now. It's more expensive, but in much, much better shape.
