Another (Potential) Treasure

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
A couple months back, we found a 1984 IBM Model M from our school's basement. This time I have another potential treasure to present. It looks like a white alps keyboard. Can anybody attach some value/a price tag to this guy?

nice find...you can read a LOT about that particular board in the discussion on this article over at geekhack: http://geekhack.org/showwiki.php?title=Island:5033

Dampened Alps, supposed to be a pleasure to type on.

Sadly those keys seem a little yellowed out, but even so the board should be worth an easy and fast 40$. Could go for more if you find someone looking for the dampened switches in particular.

The trick is getting it to work with a modern PC.

$40 is what I would have said too.

Dampened Alps aren't great. They're a well made keyboard though. Mine has been modded with Blues Alps, and is pretty boss.

FYI - you MAY NOT need a blue cube on this one.

Works fine on my Asus P8P67 Deluxe Sandy Bridge and my old Intel BadAxe2.

This is unlike the venerable IBM Model M which does not. I've tried over half a dozen on them and they don't work on either PS/2 connection.

PS/2 sucks.
