:shock: That's crazy. I never would have imagined that you could stick a Windows 10 PC in a Model M. Nice job.

There are some similar commercial solutions for sale, but of course it is much better to do it in style inside a Model M...

Would be nice to see some images of the internals.

Wow really made use of the extra space! I second inmbolmie, internal pictures would be a sight to see.

a very interesting project, you built it on an arduino?

Hi,

can you show images inside the case? This is cool and very impressive. Good job

Considering that this is a fanless solution in an enclosed space, does it run hot after a while?

It is incredible how small those computers are... you may well have added a dozen inside the M122 and say that you have built a supercomputer cluster inside a keyboard!

Imagine... a Beowulf cluster of M122 keyboards!

Honestly, we've reached an age where a basic yet decent computer in a similar form factor to the Commodore 64 is once again viable.

It's a brilliant solution, but I was wondering if there would be enough room to host a raspberry pi4B, because the solution proposed by the post author, fascinating for sure, but not very believable. The Intel stick seems to be unusable with very poor performances, according to what you read on Amazon reviews written by unhappy purchasers.

EDIT.
Pcs built into keyboard seems to be a rising fashion trend lately, judging what engineers are doing at raspberry. PI400 goes on that direction without convincing to much with that inconsistent keyboard.

That keyboard is a shame. I was wondering what mechanic keyboard we are keen of could be used to host the new pc400 PCB? I tried to make measurements inside an IBM m122 terminal of mine, but I faced the sad reality that there wasn't enough empty room to properly align and position inside the keyboard case the new raspberry board: 286mm × 122mm × 23mm. Maybe a huge battleship beamspring may be a better host.
