The Apple M0110 is the keyboard that came with the original Macintosh.


The keyboard did not have cursor keys. Steve Jobs purposely had left them out of the original Macintosh keyboard to encourage software developers to make software with mouse control. Following Jobs's departure, Apple released the Macintosh Plus with the Apple M0110A keyboard which does have cursor keys.

The keyboard uses Alps SKCC series switches.[1] The switches are typically, if not always, cream. Caps lock uses a latching variant of the switch with a shorter slider; the keycap contains a raised stem to compensate.[1]

4P4C connectors are used, but the cable is not compatible with a telephone handset cord.

A numeric keypad, the M0120, was released separately.
