I don't know if I fully understand the hype around "which model m to get" or whatever. It seems like they're all fairly solid keyboards. Try the wiki
for more info on the particular models, and formulate your opinion thusly.
The only things I'd pay attention to are connectors, switch type, and keycaps. Mine uses the large DIN-5, and many use either USB or PS/2, but some use RJ-45 which might be difficult to use on modern computers.
Some were made with domes, and some didn't have removable keycaps. Some came with a trackball, some have LEDs, and some have weird layouts.
Lots of little things, but again I've never heard of a poorly made
Doesn't weird me out. They look like generic, albeit long and kind of boney, hands.
