He referred to it by the Realforce name at the end of his post. But that's not the Topre Realforce in the picture.

Moi aussi!

I only recently became aware of exactly how deficient new keyboards are; like many folks I guess I just assumed that newer=better despite all evidence that generally, the phrase:"They don't make 'em like they used to" applies to most things electrical OR mechanical, nevermind both! I read the first hand account of the story about the attempt to destroy a model M quite some time ago, but didn't really put two and two together because I wasn't typing much or at length, and certainly not in support of writing as a creative process in itself.

Just recently I began doing that very thing again (which I had not done since high school with any regularity ever since-including college), and after getting annoyed with correcting countless non-actuating keystrokes and resultant garbage, I began to wonder how I ever did it so efficiently back then. Then being the late 1980's, I suddenly had a longing for the noisy clacking that allowed me to dash off an essay in the free period I had before English in the computer lab, and that felt so satisfying when writing hate email to my ex from the Athena cluster at MIT.

Stumbling across the Guide to Mechanical Keyboards here on OCN was a happy accident that triggered my wake-up call: it hadn't really occurred to me that I was typing on a POS because it wasn't mechanical the way those old-timey keyboards were that were so effortless to use by comparison. All the fancy new buttons and "features" on the new stuff? The only add-ons to the basic extended I've ever used with regularity is the volume +-mute (and by regularity I mean "at all"), which I would trade in a heartbeat for typing functionality since I can't pay attention to media and type at the same time.

Ye GODS, but it lit a fire under my butt to procure one IMMEDIATELY and the heck with anything else I might have been doing at the time. One post and a few succinct and useful responses later and I knew what I was looking for. I claimed my first IBM/Lexmark Model M from 1996 within 48 hours of happening upon the Guide, and shortly thereafter another IBM proper nee March 1988! Currently deciding on whether to snap up an M5-1 or M13 as well just because I am gonna have a serious go at making this "TL;DR" affliction of mine pay off somehow and I'm afraid I will never be able to get another one should these fail some bizarro-universe day in the future.

And now, at last, I am stopping to look at some of the modern alternatives as well. I pulled up a chair over at Geekhack too cuz the next thing on my list is finding a modern match for my Kensington Expert Mouse (serial input!).

So whaddaya think - can I bees in da club?

i just got an IBM Model M and this thing kicks ass. ill never go out of using mechanical again.
post #169 of 36807
Looks like Voix has superseded my claim to the oldest Model M; his is March 1988, vs. December 1988 for mine.
post #170 of 36807
Add me, just got some upgrades for the b-day. So much better than the wave mouse and keyboad IMO.
