There's the tenkeyless one, and there's one without the giant bezel around the board. That's it.
There are a bunch of differences between Unicomp and IBM. Unicomp switches are about 5g lighter, they have a thinner steel backplate, thinner plastic, 1-piece keycaps, drainage holes, the entire board is a bit lighter...and I'm really tired I can't remember what else.

I know.. VERY CHEAP and stupid of me to get it,it has done nothing but give me stress and i wanna snap it. PLEASE recommend me a better keyboard in the range of 30 to 60 dollars that'll last a long time and only 1 keyboard that costs 80 bucks. Help!
Even my letters worn out. I only got this because i needed a lit keyboard for nights.
If you want the ultimate in durability, get a Model M 1390120, 1390131, or 1391401 off of ebay. You can expect them to last at least half your lifetime.
But for something a little bit more modern, try an ABS M1 (newegg) or MX-11900 (ebay).
