I just got this lovely keyboard this week :D . I couldn't find out much about it and the label on the bottom is unreadable.

After some further research I believe this to be a keyboard for the 830 Series terminal.

This keyboard is also very similar to Haata's TP 130 keyboard.

and similar to nourathar's TD019 keyboard

Very stylish, innit? Especially those blue relegendables; very nice touch!

I really like this keyboard, especially the rounded keycaps. But it's not ANSI...

Clearly an Iso enter, but some dummy put it on the wrong way (and in the wrong place too) :D

The guy at the background has no computer to use and how he sat makes him look a bit unenthusiastic and sad... :oops:

Yeah horrible posture. Poor sap probably has a dead end job, three kids and wife that's having an affair.

Yeah I just love the style of these boards and others of this time period. It's been on my list for a while and really couldn't ask for a better board in my collection.

Kids are fine, job and wife can be replaced.
But no keyboard!
Staying that way sounds worse than no life...
