Thought this might be of interest. My Tomy Tutor computer (from 1983) has an Alps keyboard but not what you might expect :) It is a chicklet pressure sensitive membrane keyboard.

Here are some pics.

Nice, I had no idea that Alps ever made any chiclet style boards like this.

Man, the color scheme of the board fits perfectly with the chicklet keys! What an awesome looking board! How does it feel btw?
