2) how di i spot if it really is mechanical ?
3) is it possible to convert at to ps2 ?
4)i am being a total noob by thinking in this ?

Wow, you sure get some odd keyboards in Argentina.

You MIGHT have a Mechanical in there but unless you have the seller pull a key and take a pic I can't guarantee anything.

Anything with little multimedia buttons is certainly rubber dome.

so i just have to ask the owner to remove one cap and tell me what he sees ?

these are the most cheap and used old keyboards i could find.

i edited the list and deleted the ones with multimedia keys
