The Cherry G80-1000 is the first Model M–style layout keyboard produced by Cherry for the desktop market of the late 1980s and early 1990s. It came in a variety of switches and some variants supported both the AT and PS/2 protocols. The G80-1000 case is the same style as Cherry G81-1000.
The G80-1000 was the first full-size keyboard introduced by Cherry for the desktop market. With clear inspiration taken from the IBM Model M, it was an affordable alternative keyboard with high durability. Multiple variants of the G80-1000 have been produced between its introduction in 1987, with the most recently seen variant produced in 2011. Pricing has hovered around 110 DM (55 EUR).
The case design was more sturdy and essentially of a higher quality than the Cherry G80-3000. In contrast to its successor which has snap-in stabilisers, some G80-1000 have the stabilizers affixed with screws from the backside of the PCB.
Earlier production runs used an FCC ID of GDD5YOG80-1000; later runs used the same FCC ID of the G80-3000, GDD5YOG80-3000.

Just loosen the 4 screws on the bottom. A cross point screwdriver is sufficient.
